Hello everyone! As we in the States are preparing to celebrate the Fourth of July - and I'm off work for a couple days - I've finally managed to finish several site updates that I've been working on. A few have gradually gone live over the past several months, but I did want to put together a formal "update post" as many readers have been on vacation and may have missed them.
- First, the RSS e-mail service is live again! If you would like a weekly e-mail containing short summaries of and links to all of the past week's post, you can use this link to subscribe, or click on the button on the sidebar.
- Second, I've launched an Amazon Storefront to help support the site. I wanted to explore a way to generate some affiliate revenue using fewer banner ads, etc., and this also provides me with a way to highlight some deals and recommendations on categories of products that don't necessarily fall within a clear "stationery" category (such as books and mechanical keyboards) or hard-to-find pens that are sometimes more easily sourced on Amazon (i.e., many multi pens, discontinued limited editions, and Chinese pens). I will try to update this page regularly as I come across things, and I've included a link on the sidebar.
- Finally, I've updated my "Best Pen" Recommendations for 2018! While I wouldn't say there were a ton of significant developments, there are some new additions (and subtractions) as I've learned more about certain products over the past year and gained more experience with longer-term use. Earlier this summer, I also published some recaps of favorite pens, favorite inks, and other favorite products from the first half of 2018.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, and I have lots of great content in the pipeline to finish out the second half of the year!
