If anyone needs a mixed approach (due to having bad handwriting, not having much to write about, being forgetful of throwing the letter into the box, lack of stamps etc.) here is postcard bot. You send a picture to the number on the page via sms, they'll send it for you as a postcard. Address and payment is done via the bot that sends the sms. Haven't tried it yet.

My wife once told me she missed getting love letters in the mail, so I started writing them and mailing them without a return address while running errands alone.

I love getting fun physical mail, from family, friends, and zinesters. It's very special.

When it comes to pen-pals - as interesting as the idea of having a pen-pal seems, I honestly find it hard to maintain, unless we have some sort of preexisting real-life connection or relationship. It's hard to get to know someone's personality, tone, and sense of humor just from their writing, or to bond over shared interests when there's a big time gap between writing. Plus, our busy lives take up our energy. When we're practically strangers, it's easy to just end up journaling about ourselves instead of trying to listen to one another.

Nevertheless, receiving postcards, stamps, letters, & words from across the world is a nice feeling. I keep them and paste bits into my diary.

here is postcard bot. You send a picture to the number on the page via sms, they'll send it for you as a postcard. Address and payment is done via the bot that sends the sms.

That's so awesome! I was just recently looking for a way to send photo postcards. You know, like they did in the old days. I ended up using Shutterfly, but I'll keep this site in mind

This is so romantic :loved:

Which is why I do it. Keeping a marriage going over 20 years takes work.
