Some Holiday Typing
I'm really looking forward to writing more - online and offline - in the New Year, just like the boy who has just received a typewriter for Christmas. This is a detail from a 1940 ad for (guess what) Royal typewriters, entitled "Give Your Child A CAREER For Christmas" (big version here, if you want to see).In a way this sums up what I love about writing about old ads - part of me finds them incredibly amusing, but sometimes I also think: that looks really nice, or: I get that. And I do remember being pretty excited about getting a typewriter when I was a kid. Not that I sat right down by the tree and started on A CAREER or anything. And my parents weren't sitting beaming while I pounded out long boring stories and bad poems at my desk. But still.
Justhost coupon code - there are all sorts of great deals online. I didn't know that - that there are sites where you can browse around to find deals on domain hosting. Now I can add this bit of knowledge to that concerning pasting image into posts. Wonder what else I will learn in 2013?
