Organize your Moleskine as an Analog Blog


"This January I was introduced to Moleskine notebooks. It seems that there is a little frenzy, on the blogsphere, on the subject, these days. I was recently searching for a good, beautiful and classic looking notebook for my next trip. I found it in the Moleskines.

When I found a discussion on it on the blogsphere I followed references and discussions. There is literally a small and beautiful community of bloggers that are passionate by them. They transmitted me this passion for Moleskines. You can find many posts on Moleskine hacks to optimize it’s usage.

Blogs sometimes refer to external resources.

Blogs usually reference internal thoughts…"

  1. Ironic… First there were “journals” and “diaries”, then they came up with an online version, the weblog ( = blog ).

    Just funny that now there are directions on how to go from the electronic version to the original, I must be getting old.

  2. Yea it’s very difficult to get back to writing thing after having been caught by keyboard fever :S At least, I can’t write as fluently as I used to do back then when diary culture was on.
