I'm not sure exactly what you mean by voluntary, but this is one of my fave blogs.

Don't mind me, I'm just hoping a bump will help get us a few more responses.

I was just coming to post that one. --Warning, reading through the archives will take up all your spare time! Seriously, lol, I think I read that blog every spare second I had last week.

Trying to balance a preschooler and peace....

My husband and I just started a new one. Not much to it just yet, but it may get interesting as he and I discuss on the blog all of the issues related to simplifying.

Link's in my sig if you're interested.

Finding space and peace of mind, right where you are. Knowing that the less you own, the more control you have.
Realizing that less is not more, because you don't want more. You have too much already.  Less is best!                              www.lessisbest.net

This one is my favorite. Read through her archives for lots of small living inspiration. And look through her photo albums of their different homes, I really love her style. She posts here sometimes!

It's mainly frugal, green living, but she posts about simplifying as well. At least she's an interesting read! Kinda crazy ideas sometimes but overall intriguing.

This one won't work for me. It goes to a yahoo search page that says it's unavailable. Is it working for anyone else?

I want to read it.

Edit-Is this the same one? http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com/

I Googled down to earth blogs australia and this came up.

You all are welcome to read my blog =)

I haven't posted since the beginning of the year due to a large remodel project, but there is plenty of frugal/simple living posts from the past to read.

Have you checked out Zen Habits? It's not just on voluntary simplicity, but it's a MAJOR theme. I love it! So does my DH.

I follow this one:

This amazing family gave away all their belongings and started a new life traveling the country in an RV. Very inspiring.
