Last week I met a really interesting man who writes posts on loving or hating things and also regularly writes for The Guardian. It’s done in fun, it must be because he’d written a post about the benefits of bacon. I love bacon. The rare breed type that you save up for not stuff you can buy in supermarkets. Stuart Heritage was one of the Speakers at BlogCamp hosted by Google and Cross Pens for prolific bloggers and me ( I don’t fit in that category but intention is always there). It was really interesting as bloggers were tweeting and posting away and there were lots of people sketching. At this point, someone whispered there were bags under our chairs and …. there were smart pens in them. The pens were surprise…. provided by Cross so thank you . I like mine very much and based on the fact I’d spent ages in Paperchase recently trying lots of pens out on their little notepad without much satisfaction this is a far superior pen without any research. So Gel Ink technology is the way to go for me at the moment. I know it worked as my little focus group at home all wanted to use it. Its interesting how much children have to say on pens and their ability to deconstruct technical aspects that adults ignore. Unfortunately, their pocket money doesn’t stretch to £25 pens and this one isn’t for sharing but they can always save up instead of spending it on apps.
In terms of interest woman behind Mammasaurus spoke (brilliant speaker and beautiful, funny pics on blogs and posts makes me laugh….) and Sally Whittle who is one of the most knowledgeable bloggers I’ve ever heard. Blogger behind Lavender and Lovage won the illustration prize with a beautiful visual of her blog. I’ve posted mine here. Interesting day and lovely pen -not bad.
