Three Years of Palimpsest

Three years of blogging, dear Readers. Palimpsest celebrates its three years of existence and hopes to continue inking away for many years to come. No anniversary would be complete without a giveaway to say thank you to readers regular and random, to those who linked to the blog and those who tweeted about it. This year the giveaway is a bottle of Waterman Inspired Blue ink and a 10% discount coupon to use against any purchase from my Etsy shop Inklinks - Vintage and Handmade Desk Supplies.

From the posts published this year the top ten most popular ones (Blogger Stats inform) are as follows:

1. TWSBI 540 Diamond fountain pen review

2. Noodler's Ahab fountain pen review

3. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy pen spotting

4. Platinum Plaisir fountain pen review

5. Stationery Store Series: Brachard Papeterie and Pen Shop, Geneva

6. In praise of Pilot Pluminix

7. Pencil Archaeology

8. Stationery Store Series: Hennig of Düsseldorf, Germany

9. Mont Blanc Turbo Ballpoint Review

10. Waterman Ideal 1909 fountain pen rescued

Readers who care to leave a comment below will be entered in a draw which will take place on Tuesday 27, 5pm UK time. Winner must contact me with their address details. I will post internationally.
Those of you who have participated in previous draws will surely be looking forward to see the Grand Master of Draws in action again (see his previous performances here and here). I wonder what he'll have in store for us this year. 

Thank you and good luck.
