Taking a Break

Blogging's just not for me.

So I've been running this blog over half a year, although it doesn't seem like it has been that long. The first few months were great, and I was enjoying keeping up with my new blog on a weekly basis.

Then it started to feel like a chore.

By the time December came, my enthusiasm was dead. I decided that I would kick start it by positing on a near daily basis until the end of the month, and I guess that sorta worked even though I never did make it to the end of the month.

And after that, I kept dragging on...

Point is, I'm really not liking this blogging. I love being a part of the Typosphere--I read many of the blogs, I'm a member of the Typewriter Database, etc. But I don't like having this blog hanging over my head.

So, I've decided to retire my blog, at least temporarily. This doesn't mean I'm done for good, and maybe I'll update this thing every once in a while, but for now don't expect a whole lot from me. I'll still be a part of the Typosphere, of course, but I won't be a blogger.

The irony is not lost on me that this post happened right after my triumphant return from a month of digital oblivion... so goes it...

Adios, folks.

Guess who's back???

My crappy phone camera doesn't do her justice.. she is a beaut
Found in the same hoarder's house as the Silent, this nasty Royal did not survive the years so well. It was unfortunately not covered like the Silent was, and all that grime got in the guts of the machine.

I must have gotten to excited, because I completely forgot to mention the history fair. My project? Technology as it advanced through the years.

Some of my most popular display items were typewriters, of course. The IBM in the center is non-functional, but visitors to my display were encouraged to try the Royal and Olympia on the sides.

All typewriters (and other artifacts, for that matter) used in my display were found in the school basement... the coolest part is that I got to keep the typewriters after the fair ended!

Thanks for reading!
