On other blogs that I’ve been part of, we’ve occasionally set aside a post every once in a while for discussion. I would love to get a dialog going between all of the online pencil bloggers, users, and collectors, because I think we can all benefit from sharing advice, tips, specific interests, etc.
So here goes: I’ll post a topic to get us started, and feel free to keep us on my topic, or start your own. No real guidelines, just keep it clean (as I know you will).
TOPIC: My interest in pencils started with using and reviewing pencils, new ones that were available in the consumer market. I still love them. However, I also delight in finding old, vintage pencils and those with advertising or slogans on the barrel. There seems to often be a schism between pencil “users”, and pencil “collectors“. Where do you find yourself, or are you a citizen of both worlds like me? Why?
