Running this site takes hundreds of hours a month. I have given up a lot to be able to do this - to bring you a new, exciting essay every few days. And that’s okay, because writing is what I am passionate about. Ideas matter and spreading them matters even more. I also shoot and edit all my own pictures - you won't find any boring stock photos of women laughing over salad. Ever.

Passion alone is not enough to keep this site going, however. My big goal for 2017 is to make my work here financially viable. I could do that by filling my site with ugly adverts, but that’s not my style. Advertising sucks and no one likes it.

The internet is awash with meaningless articles and clickbait designed purely to earn advertising revenue. Let’s make a little space together for carefully written, thought provoking posts. Let’s make a place for people who care about the way they live and believe in getting a bit better everyday. Let’s spread the message of minimalism and intentional living. I know that you, and the thousands of others who read my work each week, believe in that too.

If you would like to support this site, there are a few options:

You can make a monthly contribution via Patreon. This includes bonuses such as additional content, handwritten postcards from me, and copies of books I think you'll enjoy.

You can make a one off contribution via Paypal.

You can buy one of my essay collections in PDF or Kindle format. These are also available on Amazon.

If you are not in a position to make a financial contribution, remember that simply reading my work is enough. I know that there are millions of other blogs you could be reading right now, so I don't take it lightly that you are choosing mine. Should an article be valuable for you, feel free to forward it to someone who might feel the same.

Here's where donations go:

  • Hosting and server costs.

  • Photography costs (equipment, editing software etc.)

  • New projects- Youtube videos, audio narration and other more exciting content.

  • My time- As Stephen King said, I write for love but love doesn't pay the bills.
