Since I started to follow the minimalist lifestyle, I have read through various blogs relating to it. You know, sometimes the best way to get some inspiration is to learn about others’ experiences. These bloggers, one way or the other, have given me so much motivation and insights into how being a minimalist looks like. Today, in this post, I truly want to share with you some of my favorite minimalism blogs (also bloggers) that I’ve followed since the beginning days. Anyway, after checking out those inspiring blogs, some of them may fall into your favorite category, some may not. But no matter how much you like them, if you take a closer look at what is shared, you’ll definitely find something useful or uplifting.
If you’re always hooked by “living with less” content, then you might have ever heard of (or know about) this blog. It’s not a personal blog but a collaboration between some bloggers/ designers who live a simple lifestyle and would like to share their experiences about how to get rid of stuff and focus on the essentials.
Just like many other minimalism blogs, No Sidebar’s design is elegant, clean and minimal, which is very pleasing to the eyes.
Here are some good articles on No Sidebar that you may find interesting:

I always love reading personal stories. If you know me (or rather, my blog), you’ll see me collecting stories from strangers and also sharing stories of my own. Funny enough, I’m obsessed with stories, and being a storyteller is my evergreen dream. Therefore, when it comes to following some blogs for education and inspiration purposes, I tend to choose blogs that share not only knowledge but also experiences, personal stories, and feelings. Reading my tea leaves is one of those few blogs that have given me so much of inspiration. I came across this blog while I was searching for something nice to read on the Internet, and was so happy to find this one because what Erin (the founder) has shared amazingly aligned with my values – living a simple, sustainable life.
