“With great power comes great responsibility”
If you have started a movement and have a number of followers, then I feel that you owe it to them to explain yourself and your rationale for certain decisions.
There is a particular successful minimalist blogger who has apparently decided to change his way of thinking and no longer support the minimalist lifestyle movement.
I am a bit disappointed in the way it was done. I enjoyed this person’s blog and writing and now he has up and changed his mind on a number of fronts. I am not suggesting that a person cannot change their way of thinking. Of course they can.
But this blogger seems to be now crapping on people who want to continue to follow a minimalist lifestyle.
It was “cool for a while”, and now he is on the next flavor of the day.
Of course he still wants you to BUY his ebook on minimalist living for 19.00$.
I don’t think so.
A minimalist lifestyle is not for everyone. It may not be THE ANSWER to certain problems that people face.
But I still feel that the minimalist lifestyle I have chosen is best for me. I see and hear so many people who have to put purchases on credit card. They have little or no savings. And yet they continue to talk about buying things that they absolutely do not need.
Find a lifestyle that works for you and your family.
If you happen to have a successful minimalist blog you owe it to your followers to explain yourself.
