In an era when "penpal" looks like a misspelling of paypal, I wonder how many of you still write letters and send actual postcards? Am I alone in this business with Anoya, de-la-montagne, and Durochka?

I've been a member of postcrossing.com for almost 2 years, sending and getting postcards from random strangers all over the world. But recently I felt like writing more than what a 4x6" card can fit. So I got myself some nice stationary, wrote to the few people I know who still love letters and now I'm waiting to read back from them. I have to admit, it's a little frustrating! I need more people to write to on different days, so that I maybe get one or two letters back every week.

So would anyone else be interested? Let me know!
Also, please don't share any personal information publicly and please don't send it to me in a note unless you trust me! :lol:

Aww, that's sad! :(
I write to a couple of friends and usually they respond, even if late sometimes!

I'm actually pretty surprised anyone still does that. I was interested in penpals a while back, but couldn't find anything about it. I think I'll check out that website. As for wanting to send more than just a postcard, I'd be interested. I love getting handwritten letters from anybody. :D I think it's something that's been lost in todays world of technology. Everyone just sends out e cards for holidays, or a quick email that just isn't very personal if you ask me.

Letters and real cards are a thousand times better! :#1:
