I would love to have pen pals but there is always that introduction letter that I can never seem to get through. Who, what, when, why, where and how long? I am defeated before I get started. If I was told I could win PCH for life with a 10 page letter single spaced two sided I couldn't do it. So here is my idea "Post Card Pen Pals". A shorter version of the letter. For this swap you will have 1 partner to send 1 post card to. After reading your partners profile just mention one thing you might have in common(reading, cooking, paper crafts, sports grandchildren etc.) you get the idea. If there is nothing or you don't care to follow up, just mention something so they know you took the time to read their profile. If you "click" the next time something funny or interesting happens you think might put a smile on their face or just make their day with happy mail write a couple lines on a post card, slap a stamp on it off it goes you have a post card pen pal. I am hoping to make a few new friends and have fun in the process. I have a USA version up and with some interest I have decided to add this international running just a week apart. Please feel free to join both, and start adding to you pen pal list. Post Card Pen Pals USA has a sign up date of Oct 2 and send date of Oct 16. There are comments there you might want to read if you are interested. OK I hope it will not be necessary but I will angel, to make sure everyone gets mail and hopefully makes a new friend or two. If you receive a card on time with a mention of something from your profile the swap requirements are met, If your partner goes the extra mile and sends a card with your interests Please consider when rating. You must have a well filled out profile everyone is welcome but I do reserve the right to drop anyone with questionable ratings. Remember to put the swap name and your swap bot name on the card. Hand made cards are fine but please no ad cards unless your partner likes them. We are reading profiles so they should answer most questions on these issues.

Thanks everyone, have fun and leave any questions in comment box. I do check it daily.

******** Make sure to put your return address on your card if you want a card in return.*********

After the initial contact do we still have to keep to the PC sending or would letters be OK. If the recipient would like that. Our PO charges $1.20 for a PC or letter to the US and $2.50 International. It appears that other international countries are also charging high fees for postcards. Chris crispycritter

How you continue to correspond or if you choose to is entirely up to you and your partner. Thanks for your interest. Judy

Watchers !! just one more day to sign up. I would love to get a group going where we could have many pals to drop a line once in awhile just to say HI how are you? or hope you have had a good day. Thanks to everyone this being only my second public swap I am very happy for the interest. Judy

Hi, sooooo I have been a complete dolt and not changed my address since moving abroad for school and now partners have been assigned. I realise this might have messed things up--- how can I rectify this?
