Pen Pals!

Pin It!

I am no longer doing match-ups for penpals, BUT there is a site I've discovered that will be doing essentially the same thing :-) It's not quite ready to launch yet, but you can go and enter your email address and you'll be added to the list.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was talking with Amanda from Little Miss Can't Be Wrong
and she mentioned that she has a penpal
{a real life penpal!}
all because of a link-up that another blogger hosted.
Genius.

So I thought to myself,
I want a pen-pal.
And if I want one,
maybe you guys want one too?

So here is what I'm proposing:
Shoot me an email if you are interested in being paired up with a pen-pal.
Please use subject line: Pen-pal
Make sure you provide me with your name, blog URL and email address.
Once I make all of the matches, I'll email you back with your pen-pal's info
and it's up to you to get their home address and decide how often you'll write to one another.
Please only email me if you really want a long term pen pal :-)
Take the button below and spread the word,
Maybe your readers would like a pen-pal as well -- send them my way! 
I also think it would be fun to read all about your pen-pal
when you receive your first letter, post card, package, in the mail. 
{Which would also be a really great way share about another blogger}
Here's to lifelong friendships
and handwritten notes ♥

So cute! Can you be a pen-pal even without a blog?

Amira said...

Hi Heather- I don't see why not! Let me see if I get any other people interested who don't have blogs and I can match you :-)

Heather said...

Amira said...

This is such a cute idea!! My mom had a pen pal when she was younger and they have stayed great friends and every few years one my mom flies to England or her pen pal comes to the US so they can catch up. Too cute!

lo @ crazy ever after said...

This is a fan idea, Amira. I will send you my info soon!

Kelly Anne said...

Sarah Kate said...

I've had the same penpal since 6th grade. She was born in Vietnam, but then moved to the US. We wrote actual letters back and forth until last year when she got a FB account. Now we communicate that way, but it was super fun keeping up with someone that long a time via snail mail!

Emmy June said...

What a great idea, chica! I, of course, have trouble replying to emails regularly...so I certainly won't be signing up. Haha! But I love the idea nonetheless.

Do you make your own buttons for the link-up, etc?

Mrs.Marie Lester said...

Love this idea! I did something with similiar with my old facebook group Hero's Honeys and the girls all loved it :) two years later and I still write to the pen pals I had when my husband went through his first deployment! going to email you now!

Sarah (Mrs. Ruffled Flats) said...

This is such a cute idea! I tend to be really bad at writing back to people, but I will definitely think about it!

beina said...

Fantastic idea!I love receiving mails!!!!I'm in!

Emily said...

This is a great idea. Expecting real mail, not just bills, is super exciting. Plus designing all the envelopes...eeekkk.

Ashley Marie said...

I love this idea! I was going to try to start something like this... I'm SO GLAD I stumbled across your post on The Blog Tap (what!? WHAT!?) and can join in on an existing set up! That's what that site is all about, eh!?

I just bought this gorgeous stationary and realized I want a new pen pal!

Niina - It seems pretty obvious. said...

What a great idea :) I'm in!

And I really enjoyed your blog, it's lovely!
