Recently, a reader asked me:
I had a question about your pen pals. How did you come about them? Are they people that you know (i.e. friends and family)? I was looking to make some pen pals and wasn’t sure how to go about it. I have several friends and family that I write to currently, but I was looking to meet and write to new folks.
Today, I decided to share my response in a short podcast. Listen to the segment here:
If you can’t listen to podcast, below is a summary of my talk:
Some of my pen pals are family members and close friends. However, I’ve met most of my letter writing friends through my blog and Instagram.
Below are a few simple tips to find pen pals:
1. Blog about your interest in letter writing.
2. Ask blog readers, Facebook friends, or your Instagram buddies if they would like to exchange letters.
3. Sign up for a service like Postcrossing.
