Writing In Cursive - With Some High Tech Help

Those of us who are boomers or older no doubt have memories of being taught cursive writing (my wife writes in a particularly attractive cursive script), but young people today don't put pen to paper much at all. From keyboard and mice to smartphones and tablets, there is not a huge need for writing - far less in cursive. It's not a tragedy in the grand scheme of things, it's just one of the changes society goes through as technology progresses. However, an intriguing digital pen device might help young people use handwriting more effectively - assuming they want to use it at all. The Kickstarter project by two German inventors will give haptic feedback (i.e. vibration) if words are mis-spelled, or the pen thinks the writing may be illegible. Pretty clever for a pen...

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to
get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Most free blogging platforms use WYSIWYG editors, and you can often switch to HTML as you want or need. Blogger and WordPress are two such platforms.
