About

What’s Hip Diggs about? It’s simple.

Hip: Beyond all trends and conventional coolness.

Diggs: A home, place of residence, or place of business.

I want to share some of my simple living secrets with you. Let’s get started with my free ebook:

The Happiness of Simple

My name is Dan Erickson. I’m a moderate minimalist. I’ve spent most of my life trying to simplify. I reject the ways of consumption and waste and prefer to produce and renew.

Hip Diggs Focuses On Simple Living

I’m an advocate of minimalism, small living, and self-sufficiency. I believe that living with less leads to creating more. I post two or three times a week and share from my experiences, reading, and research.  

Hip Diggs is a simple blog. I’ve been blogging for several years and I’ve learned the best blogs are the simple ones. Zen Habits is a favorite.  

I’m an author, poet, songwriter, and teacher. I’m currently teaching writing and speaking courses at Yakima Valley Community College in Washington State. I’ve written several books including, A Train Called Forgivenessbased on my unique childhood experience living in an extreme cult.
