If you’ve ever visited my other blog, you’ll know that I’ve reviewed a lot of different brands and styles of journals.
While the Webbie meets about 95% of my preferred features, to make it 100% perfect I’d love to see numbered pages. (What??? Numbered pages? Seriously? Yes… ) I just reviewed a competitor’s product and the one thing I liked about it was their combination feature of numbered pages with a blank index at the front of the book. As I tend to do a great deal of stream of consciousness writing, I loved the fact that I could simply note the page numbers at the front of the book should there be a particular section I’d want to refer back to. It sure beats all those little sticky page flags whose purpose I always end up forgetting- much like a string tied around a finger… I liked this feature so much, I recently hand numbered all of the pages in my new (3.0) blank Webbie.
Have you ever used a journal with numbered pages, or numbered your own? Of all of the journals I’ve ever tested, the one mentioned above was only brand I’ve ever seen with them. I’m wondering if it just isn’t a feature that people are interested in, that it is too costly to produce, or if it’s one that other companies are simply missing out on.
(PS – my full list of preferred journal features include: roughly 6×8 in size, hardbound, rounded corners on both paper & cover, blank off-white fountain pen friendly paper, 70g-ish paper weight, numbered pages, and a cover in black, red, or purple.)
