Blog Pals Snail Mail Program



Introducing: Blog Pals Snail Mail Program!
Hosted By: 

 



Who doesn’t love getting something in the mail other than junk mail or bills? I love getting emails and utilizing all the great technology we have, but sometimes getting a sweet, handwritten note in my mailbox just makes my day! And it makes me feel just a tad less embarrassed about “stalking” my mail lady everyday just waiting to see if she puts anything in my mailbox. Through our Blog Pals Snail Mail Program, you can look forward to receiving a sweet, encouraging note in your mailbox from a “secret” blog pal!

* You don’t have to be a blogger – anyone can sign up for this!


*Once you sign up, you’ll be assigned to a group of three pals and each month you will send and receive one letter to/from your assigned person that month. Think of it like a triangle:






*You’ll be in that same group for 4 months…that way you’ll have a chance to write back to each other so it’s actually a “blog pal” shebang and not just a one-time note.  Don’t worry about the logistics – that’s what we’re here for! We’ll send you an email telling you who to write to/give you their address for each month. Super simple. 
      
      *At the end of the four months, we’ll host another sign up so you can be assigned to a new group to make more friends! Of course, you’re free to continue writing to your original group – it’s about making friends not just getting mail.
      
      *You can send a letter, card, post card, or whatever you want to the person…as long as it’s mail!
Note: this is not a “send a gift” program, but you are more than happy to send an additional little something sweet to your friend – it would be a great surprise, but it’s not required.
         
      *This is open to international bloggers as well! 
            
      *To make sure that everyone receives their mail in a timely manner, we ask that the mail be sent by the 20th of each month
       
      *We ask that if you are a blogger, you dedicate a short post each month to telling about the mail you sent/received. Pictures encouraged! If you are not a blogger, you can send us an email telling us about it and we’ll post it on your behalf! We’ll have a link-up each month so you can see others mail stories! We’ll send out an email each month (or you can follow us so you can see for yourself!) when the link-up is live!

      That’s it, folks! I hope all of this made sense – if not, don’t hesitate to ask a question! It’s our first time organizing a shebang like this so be patient with us!

      If you’re totally stoked about this (like we are!), just click here to fill out the sign-up form! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email us at: blogsnailmail@gmail.com
  
      And that’s it! The deadline for signing up for this first round of blog pal assignments is March 14th, 2013.  Click the image below to fill out the sign-up form.


While you’re eagerly awaiting your blog pal assignments, please consider grabbing our Blog Pals button to put on your sidebar (and even do a blog post) to tell others about this fun project and have them hopefully join in!

The more the merrier!!!
