Vacation Time and a Mid-Year Review

Things might be a bit slow around here this week, as I'm getting ready to leave on vacation this morning.  I'll probably have a couple posts up through the week, but I won't be sticking to my regular schedule. For today, I'll do what I did around this time last year and publish a little "Mid-Year Review," linking back to the five most popular articles/reviews of 2017 so far, as well as some of my favorites that didn't make the cut on the basis of pure metrics. Without further ado: 

Five Most Popular Posts of 2017 (So Far)

I was surprised at how well the multi pen / pocket pen reviews did this year, though I guess from my own usage there's a reason: they're extremely practical. 

  1. Guide to Multifunction Pens: Picking the Best Multi Pen for Your Needs
  2. Pen Review: The Fisher Space Pen
  3. Pen Review: Sailor Imperial Black Multifunction Pen
  4. Pelikan M800 Souverain Burnt Orange Special Edition
  5. Pen Review: Pilot Custom 74
