I'm a bit uninspired with blogging lately. Technology has left me a slightly dizzy and I need a break. So I thought I'd do an offline experiment.
I was inspired by seeing Craig receive a note in the mail which was written on an old typewriter.
So I went on Craigslist and I found a wonderful retired journalist here in Denver named Bill Boas who had several old typewriters in a storage space. I fell for a 1914 Royal Standard, Model 10 (see picture).
So I'm going to take a blogging break for a couple weeks or so and instead, write notes on my new old typewriter.
My offer is this:
To the first 20 people who reply to this post by emailing me their mailing address at millerse1 AT gmail DOT com, I will write you a brief note on my typewriter. I have no idea what I'll write. If you want to give me something to go on, by all means include it in the email. A question, a word, whatever. Otherwise I'll just cook something up.
You can be anywhere in the world. Maybe I'll post the notes here, maybe I won't. I haven't really thought it through.
How about a deadline of February 1?
Thanks for playing.
