Who doesn't like receiving letters in the mail? It makes a nice change from bills and junk mail all the time. It's also a good way to meet people you wouldn't normally meet, and form new friendships.

The idea behind this swap is to make new penpals via snail mail, the "old fashioned way". You will have 1 partner, and will write an intro letter to your partner. Please try to be as chatty as possible in your letters, this makes it easier for the other person to respond :)

Feel free to decorate your letters / envelopes to make them even more special.

Please note that this is an INTERNATIONAL swap, so I can not guarantee you will get a partner within your own country. If this is an issue (ie: if you can NOT send to someone outside your own country), please do not sign up for this swap.

Not real sure about this swap. I was assigned a partner who signed up for swap-bot the day of with almost zero info on her profile.

While I don't mind having newbies in the swaps (We ALL started on here somewhere) I had a fairly flushed out profile. What were the standards for getting in?

@d2photo I too have a partner with a totally blank profile -_-

@Averysmom7 .upper right corner of this page is a yellow box that says swap options. In that list there is an option that says see the partners you send to. It will take you to a page with their address.

My letter was sealed & ready to send on Friday but I was still at the hospital waiting for my husband to be discharged after a stress test. It is going in the mail tomorrow. :)

So, I have many issues with this swap, First off, I have messages the coordinator twice, because I can't get ahold of the person I am swapping with and there letter I had sent them was returned. and second because I have yet to get my swap from the person I am to receive from.

Hello...sent my letter out to Wanda on Jan. 18th who was my partner but haven't heard anything. I'm hoping she got my letter.

Peggysue100 01/29/2014 #

Loved the letter I received!!! Couldn't be happier :-)

Just found out that the account from my partner was deleted :( Still hadn't gotten her letter, so I guess it'll never arrive.
