It's official...Neat & Simple Living is evolving!
It's six years old and it's time to graduate to a new platform - in both technology and mission! Instead of moving this blog, I'm just going to let it rest here for a while as the new home is being decorated. I've already done the initial move, and by January 2012 ALL of my new work is going to be published on www.arianebenefit.com.
If you would like to continue with me on this journey to designing a simpler, less pressured, more agile approach to designing life, work, systems and relationships that fit together - I warmly invite you to join my mailing list.
My hope to make it simpler for us to stay in touch...so going forward...the only way to get new content and updates by email will be to subscribe to a convenient, single mailing list...no more subscribing to both a blog and a mailing list. YAY! : )
P.s. Thanks to my new email system, you'll have a lot more say in what kind of updates you want to receive from me as well!
