more - A World of Snail Mail.

All of my last post's photos were the originals taken before getting the Instagram treatment for A World of Snail Mail and may have also been reposted to Tumblr 

One of my correspondents this week wrote to say they had been stressed out by the sheer challenge of InCoWriMo. Some correspondence via InCoWriMo and LetterMo in the past haven't had much substance to it. Another correspondent enjoyed the 5 Questions 5 Letters format of the new montly challenge set up on A World of Snail Mail as it helps have something to write. I myself have received dreary letters from "letter swaps" saying nothing more than what they had written on their profile. InCoWriMo was great in that there was no profile to copy out, and in some ways, I felt more freedom than via some of the penpalling sites over the years, mainly Interpals. So, if you are fancying a new way to find penpals/correspondents, try the Five Questions Five Letters challenge.

Instead of the 20+ for InCoWriMo / LetterMo, try to answer 5 sets of questions - write five letters.

forum has kept me busy

 A different post box I posted a letter in on a nice afternoon.
 Some incoming post. I love the Tom and Jerry stamp. One of these letters has answers to my Five Questions, for this month's challenge.
 Some outgoing post, including a birthday card for my mother.
 Post received from a penpal in the US. I love the stamps she used. .
 Look at all those stamps on that one envelope! Wow! I just love getting letters!
 I love the flower stamps from Germany  but I also like the other stamp too.
 I found the town the sender of this letter lives in, in my atlas. My knowledge of US geography is poor to say the least!
Well, congratulations to the Queen in becoming the longest reigning monarch. Royal Mail issued a miniature sheet and I was able to get my hands on one!

Five Questions, Five Letters September 2015

I have already received a response to my 5 questions for September. There are at least a dozen (I know, not a lot but this is a new project...) people with questions posted. The more the merrier though.
