We’ve put together a list of some of the best stationery blogs to follow on the Internet. Like us, these people are nuts about analogue and their blogs are some of the best places to get honest reviews and expert opinions about the latest in the stationery world. You may have already come across a few of these blogs, and hopefully you’ll find some new gems to enjoy.
Whether you’re looking for indepth reviews of niche products, BuJo inspiration or just some gorgeous images of stationery to dribble over, here’s Pocket Notebooks’ guide to our favourite blogs about stationery.
The Best Stationery Blogs to follow (according to us):
Nib & Muck
Nib & Muck was founded by self-proclaimed stationery junkie Laura who began her blogging career as a tea blogger, and then progressed to blogging about stationery when she found herself veering towards the pen and paper over electronic devices to note down blog ideas in the early hours. Follow if you want stationery reviews to read as though your funniest, friendliest friend has written them.
The Pen Addict
Both a podcast and a blog, The Pen Addict is ideal to follow if you like your reviews and stationery discussions to be detailed, and girthy. No flowery chats or unnecessary offshoots here. Just straight to the point information based on experience, knowledge and a clear passion for high-quality products.
The Gentleman Stationer
This is the perfect blog for a lover of the traditional. If you like writing with your classic fountain pen with a vintage whisky in tow, then you'll love the fact the blogger behind The Gentleman Stationer is likely writing the blog doing the same thing. The reviews started focusing on fountain pens but have now branched out to different pens, pencils, notebooks and sometimes typewriters. This is the ideal blog for the analogue loving traditionalist.
Pen Paper Pencil
Creative language, beautiful descriptions and a clear and unique passion for stationery awaits you in this friendly blog. Pen Paper Pencil is the perfect choice for creatives and out of the box thinkers.
All Things Stationery
A modern stationery addicts blog, All Things Stationery is where you go to get up to date with the very latest in stationery. Not only will you get the most up to the second reviews and product launch information, but you'll also get cool interviews, shop reviews and everything inbetween related to the most modern stationery news.
Wood And Graphite
They say there are seven different ways of learning and taking in information, and one of those ways is visually. If you find you get more excited by images than words, then Wood And Graphite is your gateway to all things stationery. It is, stationery porn, if you will. It is the perfect quiet place to appreciate vintage buys and the 'feel' of classic stationery caught in wonderful photographs.
A fantastic blog for the 'working stationery lover', Eddy Hope is not only raising money for charity (you can help via the blog), but helping you manage a vastly technological life via analog tools. This is an amazing outlet for those somewhat suffocated and bogged down by a life in front of a screen. If you work in an office most of the time and feel like you're drowning in technology, come and take a breath over at Discover Analog.
Ooh I Love Your Notebook
Whereas a lot of stationery blogs have a focus on the products themselves, Ooh I Love Your Notebook is very much about the lifestyle and the passion that goes with a love of notebooks, pens and everything around, about and in between.
