Hi all. Could you help me learn how to make this blog better.

Near five years of maintaining this blog, I feel I should have had more knowledge of internet and blog designing etc.

I would like to have my blog to be one where viewers can post their comments so we can interact.
 Viewers can advise me on every aspect of betterment .How do I make sure this feature is available ?

And navigation should be better so any older post can be found fast- this feature is somewhat working.

Is it necessary to migrate to another domain now, free or paid ? I am really ignorant.

Kindly contact me at << >>
 or                              <<>>

What I could not do alone, might be done with your kind help. Please help out if you might.

Warm regards to all viewers.

Pleased to share photos of the pen completed just now. Made using a white pmma rod and left over parts of older used blanks, the pen came up as desired. Slightly longer than a Lady Safari as shown the pen is very light. Jowo 6 nib unit and Schmidt k5 converter used. The photos are not very good, apologies. Hope you like the design.

Kit-less flat end pen in caramel swirl shade acrylic.

Made out this pen last night. This honey colour acrylic blank was bought from AliExpress, it is a soft and smooth material to work with.
The pen is regular sized, barrel end is tapered a bit more to allow secure cap posting. The cap is maintained parallel over its full-length, including the finial. Section is given a small concave for better grip. Cap maximum diameter 16.8 mm and barrel maximum diameter 14.6 you feel the cap should have been slimmer? However the cap is strong this way.
Jowo 6 fine nib unit and Schmidt K5 converter used. Shown a size comparison with a Lamy Safari.
Hope you like this design. Welcome comments and criticisms.

Kit-less pen with rounded end finials.

Made one pen today using leftover pieces of earlier used blanks and a five inch piece of black pmma acrylic rod.
The section is made with two sets of threads, so the section attaches both with the barrel as well as the cap. The dome shape can finial can be opened and a standard clip can be fitted, however a slip on type snake clip is used here.
Jowo 6 nib unit and Jinhao converter fitted.
The long section allows good grip , and the finger does not touch the aluminium seat ring ( it's sharp edges are chamfered and polished smooth however).
The pen short in length as shown compared with a Parker Sonnet.
Hope you all like the design. Welcome comments and criticisms.
