Hi all!

I hope your new year is off to a great start. I am wondering if anyone would be interested in being part of a pen pal - snail mail- thing for duration of this year (or shorter if thats what people are in to). I am thinking we could pair up and swap letters once a month.

What do y'all think?

I would like this. I like writing postcards.

I love the idea of this, but I can be flaky in execution. Would love to try w/the understanding that I might not reply super quickly!

I think this would be fun. I echo lillianp however. You know, all those little distractions like kids. But I would do my best to be prompt.

ahem I confess I'm also likely to write novels and draw stuffs at the beginning and to get less enthusiastic after a few months/weeks

PS Personally I have time to write letters, but for the people who are a bit busier a postcard exchange might be fun?

Awesome! Well, lets leave this open through the weekend and then I will pair people up! Please send me a PM with your name and address, as well as if you would like to do pen pals for 4 mo, 8mo, or the whole year. Hopefully this will give everybody a little flexibility in committing to a pen pal :)

Wonderful! Thanks for showing interest!

The addresses are rolling in which is great! I am going to pair everyone on Monday evening, and hopefully will have this to you by Tuesday at the latest.

I have gotten a few common questions that I will answer here. If your address should change within the year you can feel free to give me your updated address in case your pen pal loses it/forgets it/ can't remember who you are on PPK; at the same time, it would be best to let your pen pal know sometime before you move -if possible.

Also, the letters don't have a specific length. If writing a long letter is too much, jazz it up with some drawings and stickers. This is really in your hands as to how much you want to write, etc.

If you would like I can post on this thread monthly to remind everyone to get their letters out.

Thats it for now. I look forward to pairing everyone!
