You have probably read the sad news that fountain pen blogger https://ukfountainpens.com has – for the moment at least – put his pens and ink away for the foreseeable. Sad news.
Probably like you I have looked forward to his excellent reviews, thoughts and insights into the
addiction hobby that is fountain pens. In recent times I have welcomed a steady stream of blog posts but knowing how much time and effort is required to get regular content out there, I did wonder whether he could sustain it.
I think Anthony has taken the brave but ultimately wise decision to say no more. I hope that it is merely a sabbatical and that the stars and moon align enough to allow a more sustainable output.
I have bought and traded pens from Anthony, corresponded via Instagram and met him several times in person. I can tell you he is an all round good egg and a gentleman. The honesty and humour of his blog posts are there to see in the flesh.
There are lots of great blogs out there https://rupertarzeian.com for the genuine pleasure there is to be had in often inexpensive pens. https://dappr.net for his very detailed reviews but https://ukfountainpens.com has been my favourite. My hope is that unlike Matt from ‘The Pen Habbit’ Anthony can find his way back to writing blog posts.
