Part Two of the Penpal Post

January 28, 2009

Ok, so I’ve been putting this off, because I had way more than 5 offers, and I wanted to be able to write to each and every one of you!! But the random number integer generator has spoken, and my penpals are:
Emily B.

I was actually really surprised to see that all of the people were bloggers who I know pretty well, since there were also comments from people I didn’t know well, and people who weren’t even bloggers. I thought it was kind of weird, and I swear I didn’t rig it, lol-so I decided to ask it to come up with three more numbers:

So, eight is my absolute limit on penpals (since that’s two letters a week), and I’m very excited to begin writing!! I’ll e-mail all of you guys to get your addresses-although of course if you’ve changed your mind since commenting, just let me know. :)

And for everyone who I didn’t draw, some commenters suggested I match up the ‘left-overs’. I’d be more than happy to do that if you want, or you can write posts on your own blog. Just let me know what you think!

Finally, I was having a really hard time finding nice letterhead stationery, until I ended up on etsy where they have printable stationery sets. So fun! Just thought I’d mention it in case any of y’all were having the same issues.

    I am THRILLED. You’ll have to let me know how having eight goes, since I now have a mere six.

    I just have one and I am going to be using random bits of stationary I have been finding in my apartment to correspond with you. I am looking forward to getting some real mail!

    How’s it going so far?

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
