You guys should all know by now that I live a pretty minimalist lifestyle, one that gives me a lot of joy and meaning in all areas of life.

Naturally, I’m drawn to other minimalists. One website that has stuck with me every since I got into blogging last summer was The Minimalists, run by Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Milburn. They managed to verbalize all the things that minimalism was and is to me in a way that none of the other minimalist bloggers could.

I’m not surprised that their blog has grown like crazy – to over 100,000 monthly readers. They have also been featured on lots of big media outlets, like the Wall Street Journal, NBC, FOX, NPR. Massive, ey? I thought so. Which is why I am happy to have them as part of my interview series here on A Life of Blue.

Ryan and Joshua also recently published a great e-book called Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life, which I really enjoyed reading even as a more seasoned minimalist. 

In the interview, Ryan and I discussed:

  • their new book, the writing process and their book tour
  • the 5 dimensions of a meaningful life
  • why so many people reach a very unhappy state before they turn to minimalism
  • how to get started as a minimalist
  • …and lots more!

Enjoy the interview I had with Ryan the other day:

  4. Oh, Taxi, I love you too.Apartheid Israel hasn’t committed anything, good or bad, since it doesn’t exist. As for the real Israel – yes, it has committed state terrorism in the past and I condemn that. Cast Lead wasn’t a case of state terrorism. It was a case of a state trying to end the firing of rockets on its civilian population. Unfortunately, it didn’t really succeed.
