    I am afraid to show my husband the Minimalist’s website or let him here the interview because I think he might insist we do that “pack it up and unpack as you need it thing…” ACK! I know he would love these guys!

    Hi David,

    This interview reminded me of the advice you wrote in your book! Was wondering if they could give some additional tips on how they got readers besides having their content passed on, what steps did they take to get say the first big bunch of readers who didn`t know them from a hole in the wall? I am guessing they must have commented on similar blogs or wrote guest posts, do you know what else they did? Would love to know some more strategies on getting traffic to your blog. Thanks! btw, was just wondering why you dropped the Siteman on your pinterest account? Are you going to switch everything over to just David Garland cause I’m thinking your followers prob wouldn’t think to search for you as David Garland on pinterest.
