Three Questions With Jenny From The Finer Point


Jenny has breathed a bit of fresh air into the stationery blogging scene with The Finer Point. I love her style, and her perspective has me nodding along with her as I read her posts. My thanks to Jenny for answering Three Questions.

1. What role do analog tools such as pens, pencils, and paper play in your day to day life?

A huge part. I am rarely without some form of analogue tool. You never know when you will need to write something down and I forget things very easily so pen and paper is essential. I have tried to use note taking apps on my phone in the past but to be honest it wasn't easy or convenient enough. Pen and paper is much easier to scrawl something down fast or quickly sketch something out which isn't so easy on a phone or tablet. Currently I am using 5 different notebooks in varying sizes that all have a specific purpose and get used every day. I think I would be lost without having a pen and notebook with me. 

2. What are your favorite products you are currently using?

The Field Notes Unexposed notebook is a new favourite. I really really like this edition. I am using the orange notebook for my day to day notes. My Lamy Safari with Pilot Iroshizuku Asa-Gao ink is another favourite. Then there is my Render K that I keep with me all the time.

3. What post are you the most proud of on your blog?

My first review which was the Shelterwood Field Notes. Deciding to start the blog took some time and getting the first review up was a big deal. It seemed to go down well and I was genuinely surprised about how much traffic came through to the site. (A big part of that was down to the inclusion in your ink links - so thank you). After that first review I knew I was going to enjoy blogging about pens, paper and pencils!
