I was staying in the recently opened Hilton hotel in Bournemouth.
The designer had let their imagination wander a bit and we had a mobile phone wall. Not so interesting as the phones had been stuck on and the white paint roller had done its work.
More interesting was the typewriter wall, much more colour and interesting. Different manufacturers, models and colours.
It’s a long time since I used a typewriter and as I studied the wall I had a fleeting romanticism for using one again . Much more interesting that the ubiquitous white keyboard and pixelated screen that we use today.
The one thing I don’t miss though is the ink smudged fingers and thumb after the ink ribbon had been changed.
All good and well harking back to a typewriter but how would you blog ?
Do you still use a typewriter?
What do you use it for?
I’d be interested to read about it.

Blogging by typewriter is easy! It’s called typecasting.
Thanks Richard, I’ll have a look at that, sounds interesting.
