You are familiar with the online chatrooms, email lists, ezines, weblogs and so on, well this instructable will show you how to make and use an OFFLINE Blog.
You will be amazed at how fascinated people are with an old mechanical typewriter. Most under 30 year olds may never have seen one, let alone used one.
As with all blogs, the purpose is to be sociable and communicate, plus have a wee bit fun.
Step 1: What you need
A typewriter. Any functioning typewriter will do. I got this lovely old classic for pennies on Ebay.
Long roll of paper approximately the width of an A4 or Foolscap sheet. I used a roll of plain lining wallpaper, cut in half and stuck together to give a longer piece on the roll. The paper should be on a cardboard tube so it rolls easily in use.
For the framework: 6 poles, bamboo or any other sticks. I used old umbrella handles
For the sign: some card and some umbrella spines.
