Speaking of followers...
I'm holding another promotion to encourage/manipulate/lure people into following my blog.
So if you come here and like what you read, follow!
Here's my agreement: Instead of offering a promotional product for a prize, I will pick a new follower every week and feature them in a blog post.
If you have a blog, this will be great "airtime" for you. I'll talk about your blog.
If you don't, I'll just talk about you.
Back to nice-handwriting people, I won't go listing their names here. But maybe someday I'd go up to them and tell them this tidbit of information to tickle their ego. Oh, I can just see their faces: happy, but denying it saying they think it's dreadful, while knowing in their heads it's really beautiful. Why do we do this? Another future blog post idea has just been born.
Unfortunately (pity party!), I don't think anyone would ever approach me and say, "I like your handwriting." That's because mine is pretty bad! Well, Ian has said a few times that he likes it, but that's because I would always written him sweet things, using great pens. Yes, Johanna, I can control my handwriting - when I have the perfect writing tool. It does make a difference. Think about it: would you rather write with a dull, gray pencil - or a sharp, fine-tip pen? I'll take the latter any day, thank you very much. And I think Anne Shirley would agree with me on this one.
Another thing that makes a difference in my legibility is the writing paper. I just completed one of my journals the other day and began writing in a random, blank Lord of the Rings one we had around the house. Horrid...the lines were so tiny I felt claustrophobic trying to complete my sentences. How nice it would have been to write in a wider-ruled, cute, notebook.
I'll keep an eye out.
