  1. I like the comparisons. The ring bound planner one was epic! Also, the Ask the Desk Feature. And I like when you’re on The Pen Addict. Thanks for all you do!

  2. I cannot believe how many beautifully crafted notebooks and supplies are really out there. I have been buying moleskine for years, but with hobonichi, roterfaden, and midori, a whole new world of quality has opened up. Please continue to see what new and interesting systems are out there internationally. With online shopping, it is pretty easy to get.

  3. I really enjoy the mix of pens you review. Like the Parker Jotter, I tend to avoid ballpoints but hearing that it will take gel refills makes me go hmmmm….

    Also paper. Lots and lots of paper based things.

  4. I would love to see more about how folks use planners and integrate them into their digital lives, too. I really enjoy your blog.

  5. I love the links posts! I would also like to see how I can integrate all my to-do and to-remember lists into something more cohesive and useful. Thanks for a great blog!

  6. Thank you for all your great reviews of products and their sources. I’d like to see reviews of the best pens for left handed people. My ink always smears.

    1. Jackie, I’d like to think that all my reviews are reviews for the best pens for lefties since I am a lefty. I try to include any issues I have with a pen in my reviews but mostly I’ve found that a good pen is a good pen whether you’re a lefty or a righty. The only true issues I run into are with larger width calligraphy italic nibs. Much beyond a 1.1mm stub and I can’t get it to write smoothly or consistently. More to follow!

  7. Loving the site. I’d like to see more on notebook hacks that incorporate bullet lists, or other clever analog systems & devices. I enjoy reading and trying the hacks, but have not found the “right” one for me.

  8. Long time lurker, first time poster. I’m a big planner fan and love to see what options are out there along with ideas on how to use them. Also other organizational desk items like folders, bins, pen/pencil holders, etc. And how about some videos on pens, planners, notebooks, pencils– the works!

  9. While I love reading about what I would call ‘posh’ notebooks, maybe you could do a post on the cheaper, yet just as useful and ‘oh so got to buy that now’ notebooks and journals. Tuesday Morning usually has quite a nice selection, as does Home Goods.
