Topic #123 on the Daily Post suggests we write about a blog or a blog post that I enjoy. I loved this topic because I told myself I’d do a bloghop entry once a week and it’s been ages since I did a blog hop!
I went around the avenues of Freshly Pressed and I found a humdinger of a blog post that made me cheer and do a tiny dance of joy. It was actually the title that caught my eye: Notebooks (AKA I Have A Problem). I clicked and started reading. I “liked” the blogpost because I knew exactly what he was talking about.
Oli talked about his obsession with notebooks. He has, as far as he is aware, about 31 notebooks. I laughed out loud when he remarked that he thought that 31 notebooks didn’t seem to be enough. I knew exactly what he meant. I myself have several notebooks on hand. Some of them empty, some of them with scribbles because I buy each notebook with a purpose in mind for each one. I’ve just now decided that I might need a shelf for all my notebooks, that way I can keep track of my notebooks and consequently, my projects.
I felt so relieved that I wasn’t the only one addicted to paper. I remember when I used to work at Kennedy House and Janet, the receptionist showed me the supplies cupboard and I went “Oh!” she laughed. She said to me comfortingly, “I get the same reaction all the time. We all love a bit of stationery.”
There really is something comforting about stationery! And Oli, we are not alone! 🙂
