I love the Internet and I believe that e-mail is one of the great things that humans invented. We live in a fast-paced world and many things can happen in a click of an eye. And so, e-mail made the typical “snail mail” a thing of the past. Well, not really. Can I just say how much I love sending and receiving letters thru snail mail? Sending and receiving letters and postcards via snail mail gives me a warm and special feeling—It’s really different—from sealing an envelope up to pasting a postal stamp and then dropping it to the mailbox. Plus, nothing beats the thrill of excitement you feel while opening a letter. It’s simply AWESOME!
It’s actually a great thing that I still receive a couple of letters and postcards sent the usual way. Luckily, I usually receive a letter from the World Vision child I’m sponsoring. Although he’s still young and still developing his writing skills, he really replies to my letters. He actually sent me a Christmas card a couple of weeks ago. So cute!
A Plurk friend shared with me a very wonderful website that promotes the use of the “snail mail.” The site is Postcrossing. Postcrossing works pretty simple – you send a postcard and you receive a postcard in return from a random person somewhere in the world. I joined the site a couple of months back and I really love the experience of sending and receiving postcards from/to different countries around the world. I’ll be sending two postcards to USA and Finland tomorrow. I can’t wait to receive more postcards! I’m so excited!
Actually, my sisters Dianne and Roxanne joined Postcrossing just yesterday.
