Snail Mail and Pen Pals

imageHello out there in blog-land. Today I just wanted to share my excitement over pen pals! I love snail mail but never get it unless I order something online. Thanks to a wonderful post by puddleside musing, I have joined postcrossing, a wonderful site where you send postcards to different people around the world. I have always wanted a pen pal but had no idea how to get one. Thanks to her wonderful post, she listed different sites where you can get one. Post crossing is great, but I want to have a real pen pal. Someone I can write to more than one time and get responses. I am currently trying out geekgirlpenpal.com and I have had conversations with a couple of wonderful ladies. I’m hopeful I can have a friendship with them. But I’d like more. Am I being greedy or over excited? I don’t know. I’ve never done this before but I’m having fun with it. Right now all my conversations are through email and not snail mail yet. I hope that happens soon. I love sending letters. If anyone out there wants to be a pen pal or knows how I can find another one please let me know. I love learning about people and various places, even here in the states. I don’t get out much! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! These lovely postcards are waiting to be sent somewhere. 😁

Enjoy life’s sweet moments!

  1. Happy to hear my post was of help! Hopefully you’ll be able to develop some of your email friendships into snail mail ones soon ^-^ Definitely remember to check out the Postcrossing forums – there’s often people on there looking for pen pals 🙂

      1. No problem ^-^ The Postcrossing forums are a bit weird, they’re part of postcrossing but I think you have to register separately to the forums to be able to post. I think. Been a while since I was there, must get back to checking those forums!

      2. I’ve noticed that. I’ve had a hard time figuring the forum out on postcrossing so I am walking away from it in frustration for the moment. But I have had a little better luck on the Geek Girl website. Thank you again for your help and suggestions! =D

  2. I am in Postcrossings too. 🙂 Loving getting the odd card in the mail. Went geeky and bought an album for my cards. Think some folk on there are interested in direct swaps which I guess must mean they’d like to hear from someone more than once?

    1. Hi Shazza! I think that might be what that means too. I like the idea of hearing from someone more than once and making a pen pal out of them. I don’t have many cards yet as I’m still very new but I’m hopeful. I love receiving them. Thanks!
