adding writing to a blog

Bamboo Tablet Love

                                                                    (lyrics are from Iron and Wine's "Passing Afternoon")

Years ago I was given a Bamboo tablet for my birthday. I used it a couple of times but never really got the hang of it so it got shoved in a drawer, bascially brand new, and then I moved several times and forgot about it. Recently my mom came across it and asked if I wanted it and I was super excited that it was still hanging around. I actually attempted to add handwriting to my blog a year or two ago with my scanner but it never looked right so I gave up. I've also seen a lot of bloggers using similar tablets espcially over the last year or so, and I just adore the look. Since everyone's handwriting is different and I love how it makes everything so unique and special to each person.

It's a little hard to get used to at first honestly. I don't know about newer Bamboo tablets but mine's pretty sensitive. I have to really relax my hand to get a good product or else my writing comes out really jagged looking. I love it though. You might have noticed I already started swapping out my banner and some sidebar things to use my own writing instead of the font I've used until now. I'm all for DIYing and adding a personal touch to things so I adore it!

Have you ever used a tablet from writing or drawing? What do you think?
