Going Analog with Fountain Pen - Info

This past week my brother decided to start using a fountain pen - I guess my using one got him to want one as well. So, I decided to start writing up on my blog some info about the "Care and Feeding" of a fountain pen.

Feel Free to check it out and comment on it.

I have a long long way to go to being an expert on fountain pens. But I love them.

I currently own about 8 pens and just purchased a few online to repair. These will be my first pens to recondition.

Well here is the link to the article.

One of these days...

One of these days I'm going to gather some thoughts about fountain pens for the good folks here. I have a few outlines, but outlines are not articles. :P

I'm not an expert either, but you don't have to be an expert to have info other people would like to know -- as you've discovered. :)

Inky Fingers...

I would love to hear what you have to say on the subject of fountain pens, Robert. So far I have played it safe and stuck to buying new pens. However I have fond memories of my grandfather's pens including a nicely mottled Mabie Todd Swan...

Hmmm, you should have a word with inno. Not only is she a talented writer, she is a great editor too.

Chatted with Doug

I talked with Doug about the idea some time ago -- the hangup is on my end, I'm afraid. I should just block out a chunk of time and get started on these articles.

My perfectionism is getting in the way too, because I see photos and diagrams and stuff, and I haven't gotten started on those either.
