Day 17,298 Gratitude: Good Mail


I believe that one of the greatest blessings in this life is having good friends who believe in good mail.  Strange as it may seem, these have turned out to be many of my local friends ... several of whom I see on a fairly regular basis.  Doesn't matter.  Surprise snail mail rules.  For this I am so grateful.

This year I have found myself smitten with Postagram for the iPhone.  It is an extremely user-friendly app that takes you step-by-step through creating and sending a postcard for only 99 cents.  I've bought credits which is the best deal going.  It uses the photos on your phone, Facebook or Instagram accounts.  It will even pull mailing addresses from your contact list.  For awhile, I was sending one per day.  The frenzy has passed and now I'm focused primarily on a special project or three and, in the process, building subject-specific portfolios.  Nice.  But Postagrams are outstanding for thank you notes or quick hellos.  Oh and I forgot to mention that the photos can be popped out!

You know about the Letter Writers Alliance, right?  No?  Go explore, especially to learn more about the Pigeon Post.  Who wouldn't love getting THAT in the mail?

Want to help save a little post office?  Check this out.

If you have any snail mail lovin' links to share, please send them my way!
