Why Pens?

Have you ever been walking through your local retail store and set eyes upon a pack of pens or a certain notebook and thought, “I wonder if those are any good?” Well, the purpose of this blog is to answer some of those unknowns.

Do you have an item that you would like to see reviewed? Feel free to shoot me an e-mail (Click Here) or even to send me one of the items (Everybody loves charity, lol)…

Have a review of your own? Feel free to send it in and I’ll gladly post it, giving you the credit. Happy reading!

 United States. I am currently a Junior majoring in Accounting at the University of Charleston and am also a co-editor of The Eagle, our college newspaper. I’ve always had an interest in stationery items, be it pens, pencils, paper, etc. because I could never find one that particularly suited my needs. I am left-handed and many products just don’t “work” for me, especially when it comes to comfort and smearing. In my quest to find the perfect office supplies, I slowly began to amass a large quantity of items and a lot of opinions, and I thought, “Why can’t I share these with others, rather than just keeping my finds and thoughts to myself?” So, I began writing a blog in January of 2010, and have enjoyed writing about something that I love.

I am also a very musically inclined person. I have played the piano for 15 years of my 20 year life, but I also can play a little on the guitar, banjo, and just about anything I can get my hands on. I am courting a beautiful and wonderful girl named Sarah, who I love very much, and plan to marry her someday. I am also a Christian, currently attending Esta Memorial Baptist Church in Belle, WV.


All reviews contained herein are un-biased in their opinion of any product from any company. All items that are reviewed I have purchased myself, but in the future, should any company send me a product to be reviewed it will be noted in the review as well as added to a list below. Should a company choose to send me a sample product, the sample will be reviewed under the same guidelines as all other reviews with no special considerations toward the manufacturer. I also have not received any monetary compensation for my reviews, thereby insuring that all opinions are my own and not affected by any third party.
