I would hardly believe it but it’s almost 5 years since I started writing this blog. That’s nice, but it brings a problem with it: I’ve written about most of the more common British pens – and quite a few less common ones. Obviously, I will continue to try to get hold of all the pens that I haven’t written about yet but that isn’t going to happen very often. In the meantime, I want to continue blogging about pens. I don’t have many options about that. At one time, I would have been happy to switch to American pens but given the outrageous expense of importing pens from America these days I think that’s out. Yes, I can find a few American pens here in Britain but I’ve written about most of them. That leaves me with another option: inexpensive modern pens.
Now I know that that will offend (or at least bore) those among you who only read me for old pens. However, I have written about cheap modern pens recently and have got some good feedback so I think there will be some interest. Obviously, I would prefer to be writing about old pens and I will do whenever I can to do so but but in between I will attempt to fill in with good examples from the wonderful world of comparatively cheap and absolutely cheap pens of today.
Tell me what you think.
