PLUG: Simpler Living

SimplerLivingNaomi Seldin, the features editor over at the Albany Times Union, launched her Simpler Living blog on October 1st, 2008 in an effort to both de-clutter her home and promote ways to donate, reuse, and recycle unwanted items and objects from the home.

In her most recent post, Naomi hit her goal of giving away 100 things.  Some of those 100 things were snatched up by yours truly including but not limited to The Road by Cormac McCarthy (which has added to my own cluttered reading queue) and CDs from The Beastie Boys, Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest, and John Coltrane.

Although she’s not giving away any more of her personal items, Naomi will maintain the blog to increase awareness of the “Simple Living” philosophy, and she always provides an interesting read.  So check it out, subscribe to the RSS feed, and give her your feedback.

And be sure to check out all the other blogs on my blogroll (on the right-hand side).

    I just started reading The Road – interesting piece of writing so far. It was loaned to me by a co-worker, and I realized books and CDs are items that are always passed around and reused multiple times, unfortunately at the expense of the authors.

      Ah yes. Pirating has, indeed, always been around in some form or another. 🙂

      I really don’t think authors mind, to be honest. Loaning books really is a time-honored old tradition. So long as somebody bought a copy to begin with, right?
