Pen Pals is just a great concept! You write back and forth with someone, that’s it. It’s cooler with paper and stamps. The tactile multimedia nature, the time delays, the old school vibes.
I used to write my younger half sister letters when I was in college. She found one recently and sent me photos.
But of course — email is 1000✕ more practical and there is no reason you can’t evoke the same sort of pen pal relationship via email.
So — have you done it? Are you currently doing it? Do you like the idea but don’t have one going right now? I don’t really have one at the moment, regrettably. I feel like I’d gravitate toward it more if I wasn’t so busy blogging. I like the one-on-one vibe of pen pals, but apparently not as much as the one-to-many writing style I normally do.
