Hello folks and thank you for your interest in my little blog. 🙂 My name is Gerald and I registered mycoffeepot back in the day–oh, around the year 2000 and it was my travel blog when I lived in the Czech Republic from 2002-2008. When I moved back to Canada it became a photoblog and I was amazed at how I could take a picture on my pre-iPhone smartphone and email it to a special address and it would make a blog post out of that one photo! Then Instagram came around (http://www.instagram/com/mycoffeepot/) and that photo-blog lost it’s sparkle and I ignored it until the domain expired.
Then I got into fountain pens. I mean really got into fountain pens. My collection started while I was overseas when a friend was going to France for the summer and I asked for a pen or something as a souvenir. I got my first pen–a Parker Vector. It was 2006 and that’s when it all began. One turned into more pretty quickly but my collection stayed under 10 pens until I got back to Canada in 2008. Things began to accelerate after that.
I hope to have some interesting content on this blog and I’m gonna try to not let it fizzle out. Please feel free to comment on anything and you can always send suggestions to email@example.com
Thanks for stopping by!
