Looking for a penpal?

Sometimes it can be hard to find new pen pals, especially when you first start writing letters, so I have decided to start a "Penpal Mailing List". This is how the list will work.....

1. Send me an email with your name, age, location, email address, blog link, and an approximate 200 word profile about yourself. My email is timeaftertea (at) gmail (dot) com
2. This profile will be added to the Penpal Mailing List
3. The list will be available as a link in the sidebar of my blog
3. People will be able to check out the list and find people they are interested in writing to. They can then email the person and see if they are interested in snail mailing with them.
4. The list will be (hopefully) updated fortnightly so you can be taken off the list when you like and new people can be added.
5. The list will hopefully result in lots of happy and full mailboxes.

I am happy to take any suggestions on how you think the list could be improved as I have only just formulated the idea. Oh and feel free to spread the word, I will hopefully come up with a blog button over the next week.

  1. Great idea, Megan! Look at you, bringing people together from across the world!

    I already have about a million people I write to, so don't think I'll get on that list. Which reminds me, working on my reply to your lovely letter now. Should have it mailed off this weekend.

  3. Lovely idea. I've also got more letters than I can handle, but I often get questions from blog readers about "where can I find a penpal?" so I shall send them this way!

  12. This is a wonderful idea. I blogged about it already. I don't need any more pen pals myself, but I love point people who ask in a good direction to find more pen pals for themselves. So how's the project going? Please let me know when you have a button for the Penpal Mailing List all set!
