Perhaps a post?

Hrm. I’m still prodding the idea of yet ANOTHER pen/stationery/paper/office supply/art supply blog. Just what the universe needs.

However, these are things I love and I believe I have different views on the aforementioned things than any other blog I’ve run across so far.

Plus, I have excellent penmanship, which is QUITE the rarity in the pen blog world. Soooo tired of illegible pen/ink tests where you can’t read the writing sample.

There’s also very little consistency or actual scientific methodologies for reviews in this venue. And an over-representation of either white male thirtysomethings or super hip chicks, with a smattering of emo artists. Lots of store/seller blogs as well. One independent blogger now works as a pro blogger for a pen company. Niiiicely objective there.

I dunno. I’m not sure I’m super unique in my preferences, but I am different from the current pen/stationery bloggers that are crazy particular about their writing instruments (I use M nibs happily on my fountain pens, no EF snobbery here) or are psycho about their Douane paper (I actually like lots of paper & even generic notebooks god forbid) and I’m a graphic designer — not a head-in-the-clouds artist, steampunk enthusiast or rabid letter-writer.

Maybe I’m being too cranky and nitpicky here but whatevs. I’ll just be me and attempt to write about the shit I dig. I am certainly not a writer and I dig on lots of crazy stuff so we’ll see where that goes.

First (topical) post: an overview of what’s in my bag(s) and what I’m doing my list writing on at the moment, as well as the journals & planners I’m using right now.
