More Gregg, Less Marsha

Oh goodie, twelve more pads of Gregg-ruled steno pads!

Here's my supply of pre-cut 3-hole punched adapter strips, already for archiving my 6"x9" steno pad typewritings:
Yesterday's four-page blog article taped to one adapter strip, ready to archive:
Each page can be flipped open individually for easy reading:
The four-page blog article now archived in the 3-ring binder:
I'm curious as to how other typecast bloggers archive their original sheets. I trust my paper filing system better than some mega-corporation with my data, that's essentially only as permanently secure as my account with them. One goof with your email account or password and poof! it's all gone. Of course, paper can be destroyed in some physical catastrophe, as minor as a water leak, or whatever. And then there's the issue of the space it takes to store binders-full of typewritings from decades past. But at least I know the basics of how to secure things in the physical realm, I feel I have control there. How about you?

Regarding the late-night typing and the noise I was causing, Aunt Pat's Royal 10 has hard rubber feet and feet bushings, it does sound like a herd of horses atop my wooden table. That large towel folded into quarters really did the trick of dampening the noise. Still, I need to be more considerate late at night, all the better reason to employ a thermal typewriter in those situations.

Heh, I throw my typescript in a basket, then when that basket gets full, I toss it all in a box with an approximate year range written on it. Not ideal for later perusal, but does offer constant surprise on review. :D

I discovered this while watching Michael Jecks' YouTube channel. He's an author un the UK and his videos are primarily concerned with pens, paper and journals. He was discussing his archiving method and showed a rather unique binder. It reminded me of the binders for pinned printer paper. Though much cheaper on the other side of either pond, I ordered one anyway and it is the best thing I have found for storing my typed pages.

Ah, to find real Gregg Ruled paper though is the real challenge. No longer do I find proper title spaces at the top or hard cardboard backs like the originals. I did get a case of nice ones the year before the virus from the Industries for the Blind.
I do buy Staple's brand since they are the closest local supplier and the cardboard as of the last batch was still stiffer than most others.

I bought a steno pad to have on hand when I am ready to start learning shorthand. Next year will be a good year for that, I think.

Is it just me or does anyone else hear the cool ring of Gregory Short writing Gregg Shorthand?

This blog is pure joy! I'm enjoying your posts. I wish I had a typewriter, too.
