I started blogging in 2004 before there were even plug-n-play blogging platforms to use. I built my own archaic blog theme and hard coded all of the posts. It was tedious but rewarding. I did it to share my adventures as I traveled the country as a YWAM missionary on The Wave USA tour. Blogging allowed me to get in touch with my creative side as well as hone my writing skills and photography skills. I became a serial documentarian. Since that time I have changed blogs twice creating www.anotherkindofdrew.com in 2006 and then www.tinyrevolution.us in late 2009. Along the way I also founded Blog Savannah and served as a blogger for a number of groups and teams.
Tiny r(E)volution is an Internet home for people interested in simple, minimalist living, and less square feet than most master bedrooms. It primarily focuses on tiny house trailers such as our own but also explores a number of alternative housing arrangements and the issues and products surrounding them. I typically post twice a week on topics like downsizing, raising minimalist children, How-To construction, and events in the tiny house community. We also serve as the home for the r(E)vo Convo podcast hosted by Laura LaVoie and myself.
I write from our experiences with going tiny and offer tips, tricks, tools, opinions, and suggestions with each post. When we began our tiny house adventure in late 2009 there was little on the Internet to help us. And what there was seemingly came with a pricetag. We immediately wanted to begin creating a transparent, free, resource for others just like us. None of my posts are “gospel posts” and I do not claim to speak as THE authority on tiny house living. It is more important to present options and opportunities rather than instruct others on what to do or think.
