1 Step to Letter Writing

bdaycardsI don’t know about you, but I am so tired of reading 10 steps for this, Seven sure ways to do that.  There are so many tips out there on how to write the correct blog post to and ways to get more readership.  I am writing this blog solely as an outlet of my passion of letter writing.  As you can tell (if you scroll back, I guess), I haven’t written in a few months.  I’ve written lots of letters and taken a few photos for blog posts.  I’m living life and the days keep going by.  The reason for this post is to just say I don’t think you need a reason or a how to write a letter.  When you feel compelled to write, just do it. Yes, you’ll need to put some effort into what to say and buy some stamps and know where the nearest post office or mailbox is, but I guess that’s where the time and thoughtfulness comes in.   My card choice may not be perfect or my writing sloppy, but my intention ALWAYS behind writing is to sit and connect with that person for a moment–even if they don’t reply.

Above is a sample of some of the stationery I received from girlfriends this month for my birthday.  It’s a such a great gift for me and I love thinking of my friends when I send notes to others.   I have a French Bulldog that looks just like this card so I was thrilled to receive these.  It’s also nice to get stationery that you have never seen before.  That’s where specialty card stores are a must for me, especially when we travel.  The fall leaves is blank inside and was perfect for this time of year and green is my favorite color so of course I loved these too.

Happy letter writing whatever method you choose …

  1. I love writing to people, but it is hard to write and get no response. I wrote to a dozen people when I went on my trip around SE Asia, and got an unprompted response from two of them. One wrote back to me, one I was in constant Facebook contact with throughout the trip anyway. The rest I had to ask if stuff had arrived.

    1. creativityinthebox~thanks for your comment. The response is an awkward one. I like to write to people to connect and many times to thank them for something. It’s ok if I don’t hear back, but what is funny is when they apologize for not writing back. Not everyone is a handwritten note person and I get that. I’ll look forward to checking out your blog more and hearing about your trip! It sounds wonderful! Have a great week~
