Recently – and by this I mean yesterday – I found two snail mail related links and I thought I’d share them with you.
The first one is the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club.
Once a month on the 15th, they open a new round of sign ups for people interested in getting pen pals. You tell them a little bit about you, including your top 5 geek loves and at the end of the month would pair you up with someone who shares a similar interest.
But they aren’t just a pen pal group. They are a blog, a book club, a photography group plus much more, with one over-arching theme – geek love.
I am still exploring their site and forum – there is quite a lot to read – but I knew I just had to tell people about them. Their current round of sign ups are about to end (finishes at the end of the month) so if you’re a geek with a saved up pile of stationery, why not sign up and give it a go?
Now, if you’re not sure you can commit to a possibly-long-term pen pal relationship, how about writing a postcard?
This second link is an event run by Sian from the blog From High in the Sky.
She’s hosting a postcard exchange and she’s accepting sign ups from now till June 30th (I know, I know, there’s only a few days left, but I only just found out about it yesterday).
This event was started because, for people in the Northern Hemisphere at least, it’s Summer and a lot of people are going away on holidays.
I’ve signed up for both events; since I found the two links completely at random and from two completely different sources, something in the cosmos must be telling me to do some letter writing!
