hi. i’m rory.
I like to read books and write letters. I’m the creator of nothing to say, where I send out a letter every two weeks for artists and anyone involved in the mystery of trying to create things. If that sounds like you, head over there and consider subscribing. I’d love to have you as a reader.
Poste Italiane (this blog!) is a place for me to write about my interests, which include systems, languages, places, books, people, nature, and everything else. My first post here explains why I named my blog after the Italian postal service.
For pronouns I use she/her.
Don’t be a stranger.
If you wanna stay caught up on not only new posts but also what I’m doing, thinking about, watching, listening to, and lots of stuff I don’t post on the blog, you should subscribe to the newsletter, Poste Italiane Sunday Edition.
I also have a micro-blog here for very short-form tidbits (links, posts, recommendations) that I share throughout the week.
If you’re new here, here are a few “flagship” posts, some of my personal favorites that will tell you a lot about me:
- Postcards from Italy
- 21 pieces of unsolicited advice nobody else is willing to tell you
- (Re)learning to read in the 21st century
- The downside of staying put
- Why I left the Real World, and how I’m doing 6 months later
If anything on this blog has helped you out and you’d like to drop me a (monetary) token of appreciation, you can “buy me a coffee” at the link below. I will be ever thankful. ☕️
