Below is my first reply from a comment I left on Good Mail Day's 2012 Call for Correspondents! It was very exciting. I have done my fair share of "cold writing" people that I've found through sites like GMD and Send Something, but no one had ever written me first. Thanks Meg!
Awesome postcrossing card
But wait, what's this on the postcard...? The Postcrossing stamp from the Netherlands! I was SO EXCITED to recieve this stamp. It's amazing how the simplest thing can make our day. That's the beauty of snail mail—that the smallest kindness and thoughtfulness can mean so much to someone halfway across the world.
Two great first letters: one was a swap-bot penpal letter swap and the other was my first letter as a result of my Pen Pal of the Week ad! Thanks to Melanie for the letter, and big thanks to Julie for posting my ad. I've already met such great people because of it, and I know I'll meet a bunch more! If you're looking for penpals or want more penpals, send Julie a pen pal ad! You could not meet a nicer community of letter writers.
That's it from me as I'm headed to my nephew's birthday party this afternoon. YAY PARTY!
Sorry to the people who came to my blog thinking this was going to be a post about fast food, and to everyone else, I hope you also had great mail days this week.
