Can you remember the last time you wrote a letter?
I have been a part of this awesome group of ladies called Bloggers Who Bless (#BWB) for a while now. (Even though I never seem to be in the same place as one of the get togethers.)
It was started by the fabulous Heather from Femme Lifestyle. Every month or so we get paired up with a “blog buddy” who you help where you can or encourage and it’s a great system.
A couple weeks ago I was going through a bit of writing dry spell. I lost some oomf and seemed to have forgotten why I created Greenlydia in the first place. Then it hit me, I CAN’T be the only blogger who sometimes hits a wall when it comes to inspiration to write, or just create something. So I went back to the source. Pen and paper. I stripped it down and started writing letters and the disgusting saying of proverbial juices flowing happened.
I decided to mail this group of woman whom I have been getting to know over the last few months and get them involved. Thus BlogPost was born.
A pen-pal system awakening the 10 year old girls in all of us. It was made VERY clear that this is a writing project. Not a lets-spend-cash-sending-each-other-crap. Its all about the content. You can write anything you want. Lyrics to a song, a poem, you can recite movie quotes for all I care. As long as you write it down, stick a stamp on it and post that sucker.
The first letters went out and it seems to be a hit with all involved. My letter is in the post to my penpal for this month and I wrote two extras to unsuspecting people just because I felt like it.
Now I am opening the door to anyone else who wants in. If you are keen, drop me a comment below and I will be in touch. Or just mail me. Anything works.
