FPGeeks exist because we wanted a place to find the latest news about fountain pens. It seemed like the best place to get this news was in print, even with the ease of access of the internet, magazines were still the best source. We don’t have anything against magazines but we don’t want to wait two months to get the news.
We also wanted a place where we could “geek out” about all things fountain pen related without being censored. We wanted a place where we could be adults and be treated like adults. We also wanted a place where we would be informed about what’s happening with the community. We wanted a place where our opinion would be heard and actually mean something. We wanted a place where if the users wanted a Lamy forum then they’d get a Lamy forum. That place is the FPGeeks Forum.
The blog is where you’ll find the latest releases from pen manufactures and other interesting news. We’ll feature pen reviews from time to time but rarely will you find an ink or paper review. There are many great blogs for that kind of information. You also won’t see any kind of rollerball or ballpoint on the blog. We do, however, cover a wide variety of subjects in our Twitter Feed.
At the blog you’ll find categories such as the Monday Mouth Off, the Wednesday Workshop, and the Sunday Shopper. The Monday Mouth Off is purely opinion based and does not reflect the tone of FPGeeks. It’s simply a place to rant. The Wednesday Workshop will feature tips or how-to’s concerning but not limited to pen repair, nib work, and photography. And my favorite type of posts, the Sunday Shopper, collects sale listing of interesting items or deals not found at retail sites.
We hope you enjoy it here and if you have any comments then by all means share them with us!
