Letters In The Mail

Good afternoon my lovelies. Did you miss me? I sure missed all of you. It's been awhile since my last post and the only excuse I have is pure laziness. I've received lots of mail but I'm so far behind in posting on the blog that I'm certainly not going to show you everything. Today, I want to tell you about a wonderful site for writers that I discovered awhile back. It's called The Rumpus. It contains essays, reviews, interviews, and all sorts of interesting things. But the most interesting thing about their site that I want to share with you is their Letters in the Mail Subscription.  Each month you will receive two letters in the mail from other letter writers. (I am not an affiliate nor do I receive any compensation for talking about this website) Some of these letters come from famous persons. I subscribed a few months ago and I am always so excited to get my Rumpus Letter in the mail. I know what you're thinking-"why should I subscribe to a service to receive a letter in my mail when there are so many pen pal sites out there?" That's a good question, and one that has a simple answer. Because you are guaranteed to receive two letters every month. With a pen pal, you never know when they'll reply to a letter that you have written. I have been pleasantly surprised with each letter I receive.  Here's what the letters look like.

Some of the letters are handwritten and some of the letters are typed, but each one is different in the letter writing style. I even received a letter that had doodles in it. Some of the letters have an address so that you can write the author back. It's very cool really. Not only are the letters interesting, but they are inspiring. These letters are from real writers and some read like a chapter from a book. 
So go check it out now.

Have a great evening.

It sounds great but I really am strapped and cant afford the 6 a month for this but it is awesome idea . I also don't have a pay pal account anymore cause there were so many problems caused by them and I no longer do business with them .
