    I am trying as hard as possible to simplify things. I change my template to more clear design.

    Tech Crunch is not simple, they write much less about startups, they write about off topic stuff like “shaking hands”, they syndicate content from their other sites … not simplest blog out there.

    I was just looking for a good blog which writes about new startups because Tech Crunch is getting on my nerves lately, any help ?

    And I agree about the statement, what I have learned is that when you are starting new site – go simple, don’t confuse readers, don’t make them think what to do on your site because it seems that there are 100 things they can do. Make their user experience simple and useful and they will come back.

    I agree that simplicity is essential for usability. But when you have alot of keywords and areas to be added to a site, simplicity has to go out of the window unfortunately

    I have a very simple mind so I always try to make things simple. The problem is I seem to be trying to go too many different directions.

    Daily Blog Tips is simple too 🙂 I’ve also liked Leo’s Zenhabits a lot, he practises what he preaches…

    But there are also plenty of services with not-so-minimalist design, so in the end, I don’t think design matters a lot. Google, Plenty of Fish, etc….

    Simplicity is one of the joys of modern life. A lot of the work involved can be simplified to allow us to focus on one thing.

    Simple is only working on one website per day.

    Very nicely put. The way you presented your “simplicity” thesis underscores the very idea.

    Yeah, this is why niche marketing is so successful. Focusing on one thing simple enough to achieve success. Stupid man makes simple thing complicated, wise man makes complicated thing simple, this is the difference between success and failure.

    I always apply K.I.S.S. formula in everything in my life, so I feel quite simple and happy every day!

    Oh!what i will say. The tips just imagine.

  • Himanshu

    So True! I learnt it the hard way but simplicity simply rocks.

    Things are simple initially, we make them so complicated after a while. And then we realize that the simplicity was actually the better approach. Facebook is a perfect example!

    sweet and short post!

  • Vijayta
