Oh, the possibilities. 3.0

Paper Notes In A Digital World, version 3.0?

I said back in September that I might use this very same spot, the Paper Notes blog, to offer content on other areas of interest to me. I felt so constrained writing on the mechanics of my interests rather than actually writing about what really is of interest to me. I still  haven’t found the right way to phrase that – but I know what I mean. I hope some of you can get the gist and appreciate the predicament.

However, I’ve had messages at Twitter and elsewhere asking me to write on those things that interest me – right here on the same blog. I had mentioned this as a possiility, but failed at the  time to see how I could bring it under the umbrella of Paper Notes In A Digital World. But I’ve given it some thought and I think I’ve figured out a way – just do it. I’ll simply let the name stand and while the focus won’t solely be on my interests in journaling, notebooks, etc. I’ll write paper notes (in spirit) about other things in this digital world. And it might be about anything. And it might now and then still be about how I collect and incubate ideas (the notebooks, pens, journals – all that yummy stuff that brings an aroma in my senses of an old-fashioned office supply store).

So what are my interests besides everything I’ve written regarding all things paper?  Well, all those things that have been a part of my life: broadcasting, writing, classic movies (especially vintage film noir of the 40’s and 50’s), politics and public policy, philosophy, motivation and self-esteem. Life. Family.

As always, in spirit, I’ll be writing on cream colored fine stationery – you’ll just read it digitally. Or something like that.

At any rate, it will still be Paper Notes In A Digital World. But I should fess up and tell you now:

I bought an iPad!

For better or worse – there’s the latest scoop. Oh, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and join over 1800 followers (why that many give a flip what I have to say I haven’t a clue) and get the occasional tweet; if you too, want to join the ranks of the interested.

Many thanks,

Mike
