Minimal Desks 2 year anniversary!

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.

Thanks for the pleasure!

Today marks 1 year for MinimalDesks

Today marks the 1 year anniversary that MinimalDesks became hatched out on Tumblr.  To date we have 683 inspirational desk/workspace postings with thousands of followers and scores of daily visitors to the site directly.  I am proud that during this time the site has not missed one single day of postings for your enjoyment.  This includes weekends, holidays and vacations.  This has been a true labor of love for me and I remain as engaged today as I was starting out a year ago.  

We’ve had many posts featured on Life Hacker, Macworld Sweden and we recently made Herman Miller’s Top 10 Destinations of the week.  MinimalDesks will soon be featured in the Design category under the Tumblr Spotlight.  It feels wonderful getting recognized as a resource and adding value to the community at large.

Thanks so much to our wonderful readers for following along this past year and sharing us with your own followers constantly.  I look to many great things in the year ahead.
