Geek Girl Pen Pals

One problem I have as a modern day geek is that I’ve amassed a fantastic collection of stationary and cards, yet I have no one to send them to. The only times I’ve sent mail in the last few years has been for annual holiday cards and wedding-related stationary. So I’m thrilled with what @darlingstewie and @frogmellaink have created: An opportunity for us geeky ladies to use the postal system while making friends in the process! Finally–an excuse to buy even more fun stationary and spoil someone with all kinds of cute little geeky surprises.

You can sign up for the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club at geekgirlpenpals.com. But hurry–you need to get your name submitted by April 1st!

 

I can’t wait to see who I get!

Geek Etiquette: Send a Letter!

Do you remember the last time you got a card or letter from a friend out of the blue? I can barely remember the last time I got a piece of physical mail that wasn’t junk. But those rare days that I see a hand-written envelope in my mailbox from a friend, I get so excited. It’s a delightful surprise that makes the recipient’s day!

This week’s Geek Etiquette post is just a simple challenge: Send someone something in the mail. Dig out your favorite stationary set or cards, find a stamp, and let someone know you’re thinking of them. It’ll cost you about 50 cents and a few minutes of your time, and will mean so much to them.

Need new cards? I’d recommend this set from Sad Shop on Fab.com. Looking for someone to write to? Let’s be pen pals.
