Latest Blog Posts

The feedback on last week’s post about how I slowly grew my blog my own way was overwhelming. I’m grateful for all the kind words, and also glad it seemed to come at the perfect time for some of you. Since hitting publish and watching some of the comments come in, however, I realized there were a few “rules” I forgot to add (you can find them in the comments). ...

There are a lot of blog posts out there that can help you launch a blog; and launch a blog that gets a lot of attention and success early on; and then use that success to turn it into a blog that not only helps people see you as an expert but also makes you a lot of money. I can’t write a blog post like that. Some of my ...

Hi friends! For the month of October, I’ll be publishing a new post every Monday talking about work + my slow work experiment. As part of that work, I want to share stories + the results of experiments other people are doing. These are guest posts that have been sent in from online friends all around the world, and my hope is they will remind you that it doesn’t matter ...

If you remember, this year of slow living experiments stemmed from anxiety I had about how much work I knew was ahead of me. Work I was excited to do, yes. But still, work that would require my balance to tilt in a way where I would be doing a lot more working than living. And I wasn’t excited about that. I wasn’t excited because I’d come off three years in startup ...

There are a lot of posts out there that talk about why it’s important to spend time outdoors. It’s a natural remedy that offers a workout, lifts our spirits and helps us sleep better at night. It gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our constantly-connected world and take some time to be with ourselves and others. And it can come with beautiful views and show us parts of the worlds ...

This is a guest post from my friend Ann deSaussure. I started writing this post in a hotel room in Sparks, Nevada that I booked from the car after driving for ten hours straight. That was not the original plan (not by a long shot), but the campsite my boyfriend and I were eyeing was less than ideal and I dissolved into tears the moment I saw where we were supposed to ...

This is a guest post from my friend Ryland King. When I read it, I immediately wished we had actually been on this walk together. Read it slowly. Take in all the lessons in his prose. I’ve bolded a few of my favourites. <3 Could I invite you on a virtual walk with me, kind of like the one we took with Cait a few weeks back? We’ll go through the forest ...

This is a guest post from my friend Sarah. After reading the original post on her blog, I asked if she’d be willing to write a longer version and share more of her story with us. I’m grateful she agreed. :) I have always wanted to do a shopping ban. Well, maybe not always, but for a long time. I first came across the idea on Cait’s blog several years ago, and ...

In my upcoming book, The Year of Less, you’re going to read a lot of stories I’ve never shared before. Stories of how and why I got into the habit of using the wrong things to “fix” my problems. Buying stuff. Eating junk food. Drinking and using drugs. I’ve used it all as coping mechanisms and numbed myself with binges. Over the years, I’ve changed many of these habits, but the ...

This is a guest post from my friend Luise Jørgensen. I don’t know about you, but I used to get this silent feeling of being empty or of having an unfillable void, and I didn’t really know what to do about it. At those times, I would often end up going shopping, and it would make the feeling go away – at least, for a short period of time. It didn’t ...
