One item of feedback I received recently is about insufficient postings that contain NO computer on the desk. There’s actually a decent amount of those desks here but I decided to make it easier to locate. So I have added a “Computerless” category down the right column under “Quick find by:.” This category will get updated along the way but already has a nice archive of about 70 or so desks.
I am migrating away from FeedBurner over to FeedPress. If you are subscribed to our RSS feed and receive our content in your favorite feed reader please delete our feed and add this URL instead:
Make sure to enter the whole URL including “/feed” so you can get the *official* ongoing feed instead of the old FeedBurner or even Tumblr RSS feed! This will ensure uninterrupted MinimalDesks postings and much easier for me to keep track of just the one official feed. Thanks!
Feel free to drop me an email with any questions if needed.
I’m passionate about minimalism, productivity, software tools, hardware tools, ergonomics, and so forth. I feel like these topics tie heavily into and extend what we do here but I don’t feel comfortable posting/sharing those findings/thoughts here directly. I want to keep this site squarely focused on the visual, if possible. If I were to create a 100% free monthly newsletter (maybe bi-monthly down the road), is this something that you folks would be interested in subscribing to? Drop me a note at “contact |AT| minimaldesks.com” with your thoughts or “like” this post if you’re a Tumblr follower so I can gauge interest to some extent.
I’m not very good at anniversary stuff (just ask my poor wife) but I wanted to post a note expressing gratitude for this milestone. I’ve loved watching this site evolve into a resource and “idea book”, if you will, of minimal desks and simple workspaces. I sometimes deviate from this theme and post pictures that depict something a bit more rowdy, shall we say. The key is that sometimes people thrive and do their best work amongst the chaos. After-all, at the end of the day this is all that matters! I resist the urge to just post desktop pictures but instead prefer to place that workspace in context and show what the entire room looks like. I think this adds additional value to the idea we’re trying to convey on the site.
Just two more quick bits so you can get back to your weekend: Firstly, to date we have nearly 1100 posts! I love the search as much as I like posting and sharing my finds with you all. Secondly, I’m pleased to report that we have achieved perfect attendance in this two year span. Not one day has gone by where a post did not go up. Based on the wonderful notes I frequently receive it appears you guys enjoy what we’re doing and appreciate the consistency.
As I’ve mentioned previously, one of my favorite aspects of working on this site is the reader submission I get. We’ve added many more loyal followers since my last open call so I feel it’s time to call for more submissions once again.
