One of the best things blogging has given me so far is all the new people I have met over the internet. I love being able to chat to people both from Australia and far away places like Belgum. It makes me super happy to have this connection that I would not otherwise have! I love all the wonderful people I have met so far and I think that I am going to continue loving meeting new people for as long as I continue blogging.
I have been especially lucky to meet and become friends with my awesome pen-pal Georgia! I think that having a pen-pal is one of the one most fun things I started doing last year. When I was little I dreamed of having a pen-pal but always thought that I would never be able to meet someone who I could write to without them living in the same town as me. But blogging has opened the door for me to become great friends with lots of people who actually don’t live in the same place as me! Yay!
I really love sending mail to my pen-pal Georgia and recieving loads of lovely letters back! Look at them! Are they not absolutely beautiful!
Because I love sending snail mail so much, here are some tips that I have learned on the way.
Reply As Soon As Possible When You Receive Mail
Sometimes life can be busy, but if you take the time to sit down and write a response to the exciting letter you recieved while it is still fresh in your mind you will not be stressed out about forgeting about it later. I have been really bad at replying to letters as soon as I get them in the past but now I have learned it is better to just do it straight away. Besides, the sooner it is sent, the sooner you will get your reply!
Store All Your Mail In One Place
I have a really cute box that I put all the mail I recieve as well as my writing stuff. My essentials are: A set of pretty pens, envelopes, stamps, paper, the letter that I am replying to so I can answer questions, stickers, little gifts, and washi tape.
Make It Pretty
Spend a little extra time on your letter spicing it up and making it beautiful for your firend! It is allways nice to recieve a letter that is nicely decorated with love and care!
The only way to get to know a person is to ask some question about them. Asking questions keeps the conversation going and lets you decide the topic you want to talk about. Don’t forget to answer your pen pal’s questions too!
Those are just a few of the valuable tips I have learned through my snail mailing adventures, comment what you love about snail mail!
