Recently, I started keeping a logbook which is basically a list of things that happened during the day. It’s sort of like an after-the-fact planner. I don’t know if there is much practical value in doing this since it’s not searchable like a digital logbook would be, but I like to use my pens to write, and sometimes it’s interesting to jog my memory and just do a quick reflection on the day.
By the way, I didn’t fully dry my hands after washing them, and the ink I used is not waterproof. ☺
Thanks to Patrick for the logbook idea! Here’s the post on his blog:
Hi all! Here’s a quick post about how I carry my two preferred pens on my passport-size Traveler’s Notebook. There are actually loop attachments for sale to which you can attach a pen, but I read that most of those mark up the cover of the notebook, so I decided to see if there was another option. Plus I’m cheap and didn’t want to spend money! 😅
I already had a bunch of these cool little binder clips on my notebook, and I positioned them so that the handles form little guides for the pen. This combined with the elastic band keep the Pilot Kakuno snug and secure. I also positioned a third clip (the pink one) so that the pen cap rests on it, and it centers the pen so that the top or bottom don’t stick out.
I think the Pilot Kakuno is a good choice to use with the passport-sized Traveler’s Notebook because it has a cap (no accidental pushes on a push-button pen) and it’s just a couple millimeters shorter than the notebook. The perfect size!
If I want to, there’s also room to put my other favorite pen, the LAMY Safari, right on the front. It’s a pretty simple system, but I like it, and it’s free!
I really like this set-up and think I’ll be using it for a long, long time. 😌
