Inkophile, Twitter And Paper.li

02/14/2017

Inkophile will be nine years old in the spring. Hard to believe, eh? Time to streamline where my content merges with other media.

My penpeople list on Twitter was created to feature tweets about pens, inks, paper and creative endeavors. It worked for a long time, but in recent months, some pen people have posted more often about other subjects. That’s quite off the original purpose, so the list has been culled of folks who seldom post about pens or creative subjects. The list still has four hundred names on it and will continue to expand as more pen folk come to my attention. Follow along if you play on Twitter.

The Inkophile Daily at paper.li is a news aggregator that grabs some of its content from my Twitter list. When tweets and links were mostly oriented towards creative subjects and lighter fare, my paper was a nice break from traditional news. In recent months, it devolved into an almost pen-free zone. Political rants and incitements just don’t fit the pen and creative endeavors theme. So over the next few weeks, it will get revised and reorganized until it again becomes a mellow venue for pen and creative people. A new edition publishes daily between 5 and 6 pm PST if you would like to check it out.

    • Thank you, Jeanne. Will continue to do so. Folks have a right to vent. It just isn’t inspiring or creatively informative. Hopefully, my Twitter list and paper.li site will again be a bit of both. 🙂

  2. Wow, congrats on the 9 years!

    Culling sites which don’t fit a theme can be quite enjoyable and therapeutic. Enjoy!
