Why I Am Changing Focus Of This Blog

Going forward this blog will focus on old cameras, with some other general photography thrown-in.

It has been a year and a half since I have posted to this blog.  Some personal things have changed and so have my interests.  The original purpose of the blog was typewriters, with a small amount of camera interest thrown-in. I hate to admit it, but I have burnt out my devotion to typewriters.

Instead,  going forward I am devoting my primary efforts back to photography and camera collecting.  This is my first love.  I never stopped the hobby of photography, I just satisfied my camera blogging interests with occasional entries made on my photography website (http://brucevarner.com/).  I find now that some of the writing I wish to do on film cameras and general photography are better suited to a blog.

Thank you to those who have followed this blog up to now.  I hope to keep typewriter collectors a little interested even with this change of direction.  At the same time to attract a new audience.  I believe that deep down those of us who collect items of the past have much in common.  An old film camera is like an old typewriter in many ways.  That is one of the reasons I have been attracted to both.

A change in look and feel will be coming to this blog shortly.................

  1. If you post it, they will come (:

    Cameras aren't so far off the interest radar of the Typosphere. Many of us fiddle with film too, and photography topics will certainly be of interest.

    (maybe typecast one every once in awhile, unless you dumped all your typers. :P)

  2. Thanks Ted!
    No, I did not dump all my typewriters. Had about 45 (45 cameras take up a lot less room than 45 typewriters...). Now down to about 12, the ones I want to keep. I will be sure and still post something about typewriters in the future.

  3. I blog about both typewriters and photography, and look forward to reading yours.

    I can relate to dead blogs, I have a photography dedicated one that I started some years ago, with the idea of just posting an image with no text, but it eventually fell to the wayside. But the good thing about having to maintain a blog is the discipline it demands of us.
