Let’s face it: paper planners are here to stay and technology–specifically mobile devices—are a permanent fixture in our daily lives. Whether it be for work, personal, a side hustle, or volunteer work, these tools help make our lives easier. In this installment of ‘Write it Down or Power it Up?’ we’ll answer the question: “Under what circumstances does paper or technology work?”
Week 3 came to a close and we’re currently on our way to the finish line! Welcome back for another installment of the #30daysofinks Instagram Challenge, hosted by yours truly, where the creativity—and ink—continue to flow. 😉 If you missed any of the previous posts, go back and check out the initial post, Week 1 Highlights and Week 2 Highlights then come back for Week 3.

Week 2 is done and there are two more weeks to go!

Otherwise, check the highlights from Week 2 to see the wonderful inks—and pens—featured to get inspiration and ideas for your fountain pen ink wishlist.
Like many plannernerds, I’m a huge fan of the Philofaxy blog by Steve Morton. For the last decade, Philofaxy has been a treasure trove of information related to planners, inserts, productivity tips, company interviews, and user ‘spotlights’ which are guest posts shared by users from the planner community describing their setups, tips, and hacks. I met Steve and his lovely wife last year in New York City during their ‘North American Tour’ along with other plannernerds and we had a blast! We’ve kept in touch ever since which inspired me to do a guest post called ‘Readers Favourite Organiser ‘. Go check it out and show Philofaxy some love—thanks again Steve!
Until next time,

And we’re off! Week 1 of the #30daysofinks Instagram Challenge, hosted by yours truly (learn more about it here), has come to a close and what a wonderful, colorful week it was! I’ll admit, I considered this to be a very ambitious project but I was committed to doing something special to ‘share the ink love’ with all my fellow fountain pen geeks and hopefully inspire others to do the same. And it worked! Check out some of the highlights from Week 1—a lovely feast for the eyes. 😀
Smartphones. Tablets. E-readers. Laptops. Life has gotten so much easier but also overwhelming thanks to portable devices. I’ve always been fascinated by technology, so much so, I’ve dedicated over 20 years of my life to the IT profession. On the other hand, I’ve also spent a lot of time experimenting with many different paper planners. So after two decades of ‘writing it down’ and ‘powering it up’, which is my primary planning tool?
