Reduce to the max

More and more I come to the realization that less is often more. In the last few weeks I have reduced some websites to the bare essentials and thus freed up a lot of time, not only for me.

My latest project is my own microblog [shortly after that I moved it here to Kümmerle's weblog], which I'm only running as a kind of test for the time being, just to see how little effort it takes to run a blog. I'm also interested in how long I can resist before adding one or the other gadget; the goal is clear, however, only what is absolutely necessary should be added.

The first observers already doubt that this is not a blog at all; but as long as I think it's something like that myself, it should be enough for the time being. That's why I call the project a micro blog and will continue to post longer and more detailed articles here on my weblog.

As a further consequence of my latest hobbyhorse, my weblog is now also being streamlined here, most of the pictures are gone and little by little some pages and perhaps individual posts will also fall victim to the reduction.

And if everything works the way I want it to, I'll try the blogs among themselves with the note store and the writing program Ulysses to link.

Addendum: in December 2021 I started adding photos to the posts again. Because I found that posts with pictures get more readers than without.

"Perfection is not achieved when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Terre des Hommes (1939: 60, III: L'Avion)

  • Have a look at Leo Babauta's blog ( at. He implemented the principle of simplicity in the blog really radically. I like it quite a lot, although it's almost a bit too spartan for me personally. But it suits the author and his message. It looks very authentic.
