  1. Hi Zach!

    Happy Anniversary! I’ve been a quiet reader of your blog for about 1 year now, clicking on every post you’ve published since, but never commenting. I wanted to drop by this time because I was so pumped to see your favourite video of the week! (Matt D’Avella is one of my favourite Youtubers, and you just shared one of my favourite videos of his.)

    I started my own blog a couple of months ago, and it’s been a little tough. I am constantly blown away by the frequency and quality of your posts. In the beginning, I struggled to publish even 1 post a week, labouring over every word and sentence structure. But you’ve helped me get out of that rut with your discussions about perfectionism. Now, I’m trying to aim for 3 posts a week, and while I’m not sure whether I’d be able to publish good quality posts that anyone would read, here’s to baby steps.

    Thank you Zach, for your blog, your amazing posts, and your voice of positivity. You make bloggers who just starting out actually believe they’d make it one day. Me included.

    Love, Liz

    1. Hey Liz, Thanks so much for the kind words, I’m stoked to hear that you have been finding some value in my blog 🙂 I recently discovered Matt’s YouTube channel and have been consuming a lot of his content recently. I knew he filmed The Minimalist’s documentary on YouTube but I wasn’t aware that he had his own brand and channel. Best of luck with your own blog – the more you hit publish, the more natural it feels and the more ideas begin to show up at your doorstep 🙂
