Last year I remember seeing my awesome blogging friend, Ibeeeg, mention that she wanted to write more letters that year. I thought, cool idea, I'm going to do that someday.
So this year, I decided, I would give it try.
Then, I heard about this event: A Month of Letters, wherein we write a letter a day during February. What a perfect way to get a kick start on this letter writing thing that I wanted to do, yes? And at first I wasn't going to officially sign up, but now, I changed my mind. So sign up I did. And now I need to write lots of letters.
Which brings me to this request:
I want to write you, yes YOU, a letter (or a postcard, or send you some sort of fun thing in the mail) and if I don't have your address, as in that SNAIL MAIL thing, I can't. So if you'd like me send you something, send me an email with your address (jenstusue AT yahoo) or send me a Twitter DM (@SueySays) with your address and I will gladly add you to my letter writing list.
Back in the day, when I was young, I had pen pals. Anyone remember the them? I wrote faithfully for years to a cousin that was a few years older than me. Then my uncle connected me to a girl in Taiwan, and we wrote for years. Then my friend knew some girls in England, and so I wrote to one of them for years.
It was a blast. And now all this online connection has taken it's place, and fulfilling the same sort of need in me to connect with people all over the world. Yet, there's just something about writing a letter and mailing it that makes a person feel good... and truly connected.
I can't wait to get going!
