#FollowFriday is when we tell you about interesting people that you should follow online. Who is today’s star?
Today we want you to know about pen blogger Janine Atkin who writes at pencollectiongeekery.blogspot.co.uk She describes herself as loving ‘writing pen reviews, browsing stationery shops (and rarely walking away empty handed) competitions and lazy Sundays’. And a lady of #pentastic taste, we would like to add.
Janine’s latest review is for one of my favourite pens, the Pilot V5 Hi-Tecpoint. I remember when I first tried a V5 it was a bit of a revelation, because until then I hadn’t found a pen that wrote as smoothly and felt as ‘right’ to me.
I’m not sure she’s as much of a fan as I am, but I can’t fault Janine’s review – it’s got a lot of detail, has good photos of the pen and even includes a sample of her handwriting, just to give people an idea of the V5’s line width and quality.
(She’s also got a collection of promotional pens, the kind of thing you get given at hotels and meetings. I was going to say this is a teensy bit unusual, but then remembered I’ve got my own set of promotional milk bottles. Really.)
Along with her stationery blog, Janine Tweets at @zeniebeenie, where she shares pen reviews, nifty competitions to enter and stories from the stationery world. Oh and she even retweeted a post from a certain office supplies company not far from here (much love, as rappers say 😉
There we have it, the very first #Euroffice Follow Friday: Janine Atkins. If you can think of anyone we should mention in future episodes, let know us in the comments or on Twitter at @eurofficecouk.
And finally….Take a look at who else loves stationery too, a man of distinct taste.
