2013 Pen {not digital} Pals Sign up!

December 23, 2012
NOTE: January pals have been assigned, anyone who signs up after January 1, will receive a letter via snail mail at the beginning of the following month with an assigned pal. 

Writing {real writing} is slowly dying. When I write thank you notes and grocery lists, my hand starts to hurt. It used to take hours of writing until my hands started hurting. We live in such a fast-paced digital age without the need to physically write something. 

We get to know strangers via blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but we still love getting snail mail. Between bills and junk mail, it's rare that we get good mail, unless it's our birthday. 

I love receiving and writing letters. Sure, I could text a friend and tell them something immediately, but writing is more fun, plus I love buying stationery, if you haven't noticed. 

INTRODUCING . . .   


Blog readers and bloggers are joining together to become pen pals! I'm organizing this and each month I will post new ideas for you to write about, but you can write about anything you want. I envision this to look like: 

* Write at least one letter per month 
* Love the stationery or handwriting? Upload a photo on Instagram and/or Twitter with the hashtag #RealPenPals and each month I will highlight my favorite photos in a blog post with new topic ideas for the next month 

You do not have to have a blog to participate.

For me, letters typically turn into packages, I like purchasing things for people when I'm reminded of them. You can have one or two pen pals and I'm always open to suggestions of how to make this more fun. 

SIGN UP HERE, then check your email on January 7 for your pal's info and a discount code for a stationery pack from Milo Paper!
