Month of Letters: February 9, 10, and 11

February 10th, 2012 (05:46 pm)

I am enjoying writing letters! I'm used to sending a lot of Postcrossing cards, but it's fun to have other people to write to -- and to be able to pick them from the Month of Letters site based on what they say about themselves. And it's great to have another reason to think about writing to friends.

For instance, I needed to send an order form to someone in Idaho, who happens to be a friend. Without LetterMo, I probably would have just stuck it in the envelope with a check and mailed it. Because I'm more conscious right now about reaching out through the mail, I stopped to think about it, and actually wrote a letter to accompany the order form and check. It took only a few minutes, but it felt good to say hi to someone I'd been keeping in touch with only via Facebook.

I've gotten behind in recording what I sent. But I did write and send mail every day. Here is the last three days' worth:

Feb. 11:
* a letter to a LetterMo participant in Washington state
* a postcard to her daughter (who likes to receive mail)
* a postcard to a LetterMo participant in Norway

Feb 10:

*  letter to that friend in Idaho
And four Postcrossing cards, going to:
* Belgium (the Virginia map card)
* Finland
* United Kingdom (movie poster for
The Graduate)

* Taiwan

Feb. 9:
* 1 letter to New Hampshire (a LetterMo participant)
* 1 postcard to Qatar (another LetterMo participant)
And three Postcrossing cards:
* Czech Republic
* Japan
* Bellinzago, Italy
