I still have a love of all things paper. I stopped posting on this blog (read last post) three years ago and am considering resuming regular posting (though that may mean once or twice per week).
The post on using writing as punishment has been a huge hit. The comments have piled up over the past three years and I've found it to be an interesting conversation. I still remain very much opposed to this practice.
There are so many great blogs out there today that cover many of the same issues regarding paper in a digital world, but I think I have a perspective that might be worth sharing. So, I'm kicking around the idea of bringing back Paper Notes In A Digital World and will make a decision soon.
Some of my favorite blogs covering many of the same type things:
I also wrote about simplicity and that's a subject that has really taken off. To list favorite blogs on that particular topic would take pages. Some have turned it into an industry and I'm not so keen on those blogs. There's one blog, in particular, that I loved for the sense of community that built up in the comments. The blog owner decided to shut the comments down and it has completely changed the blog from one of vibrancy to one of, well, just another blog. Shutting off the comments, with the tick of a radio button, shut down the community that had built up at the site.
I'll keep you posted on the future of Paper Notes. Thanks to all for the encouragement!
