Fountain pen, typewriter collecting,
and maybe more.
BLOGGER SUCKS!!!!!i GUESS YOU KNOW THIS WILL BE A RAGE AGAINST THIS DAMN PLATFORM.
Not only can't I add text to my post, it seems blogger will not let me space the comment lines like I want. I managed to get some Tomoe River paper before the old stock was depleted. I think A5 is still available in limited quantities. I really like the paper. None of my fountain pens shadow or bleed through. Shadowing is slight for all but lightly written pencil. The MD journals have the same paper as does the Hobinichi journals. I never completed teh review of journals. That will happen when I move to WordPress. I have delayed that because not only do I have problems with commenting there, several people have asked me not to move the blog for the same reason; they cannot comment on WP blogs.
Have you considered using a self-hosted Wordpress install on some cheap Linux server place like Linode? The wordpress.com hosted version is as shite as blogger, really. You only get full control and independence from corporate policies and failures with a self-hosted site.
I really like that typeface—much more pleasing to me than, say, "robot" style.
I really like the looks of that particular font design. I tend to like the look of san-serif designs like this one better in the larger typeface sizes such as found on your Signature 513. As far as the blogging goes, it can often be a pain. I've never been willing to invest the amount of time needed to really get the most out of it. Even self-hosted WordPress can present a number of headaches. Just know that your efforts are appreciated and hang in there as best you can.
When I bought this typewriter at a local thrift store the typeface looked like Hermes Epoca a typeface I have been hunting for for years.As far as the blog, it will probably move to WP. I have a list of problems with Bloger.
Ted Munk's Post . I still can't get add text to the original post.
I love the typeface.Regarding blogging platforms, I like WordPress.com. They have a free ad-supported version you can try to "test the waters". I've used WordPress.com for years for my blog and other projects. It's easy to use, fast, and secure. There will be a learning curve if you switch from Blogger, but WordPress.com documentation is excellent. If you opt for a paid site (which you may not if you are OK with the ads and the free subdomain), support is excellent. Self-hosted WordPress requires regular attention/updates/backups to maintain a secure site. I am fairly lazy, and the maintenance is automated at WordPress.com. I have not found Automattic (parent company of WordPress.com) to be an unpleasant corporate behemoth, but a business that operates efficiently and with integrity. I'm a satisfied customer.
I've been reading about WP since about a year ago. I targeted Oct. 1 of this year to move to self hosting, but radio and other projects took priority. Now with a lighter work schedule I may be able to work on finally moving this blog. I miss being more active, and I still! need to complete my review of journals I started last year. BTW, I do have better results doing my posting and editing in HTML5, but now even coding does not seem to work.
