during quarantine in my country, i was scrolling through youtube (what else was there to do?) and i saw a video that was titled,"penpal with me". i was curious and the thumbnail looked nice, so i decided to click on it! it was a video of someone writing a penpal letter to their penpal! they filmed the whole process.

since they decorated the envelope and letter contents, i was naturally very intrigued as i love to draw and this was right up my alley with all the calligraphy and decorating going on xD (i'm sure people write letters to each other without all the fancy schmancy calligraphy, drawings and decorations too though!) i had also always thought that having penpals was cool, but it never really occurred to me to start finding penpals. so i created an instagram account just for penpalling and found penpals via instagram!

that was about 2 months ago, and i'm so so happy that i found this new hobby! i really enjoy reading my penpals' letters (it never fails to put a smile on my face!) and seeing what little goodies they have packed in their letter to me <3 i wanted to know if anyone here also has penpals? i'd love to hear more about your experiences!



ps: if reading this post made you want to try out penpalling and made you go onto youtube to search for 'penpal with me' videos, i'm glad that you are interested! google and youtube are your bestfriends should you want to search for "penpal q&a", in which people share answers to common questions one might have about penpalling! feel free to ask me questions via pm if you still have any!

I've always wanted to try penpalling, and I love watching penpal videos! At the moment, I'm stockpiling stationary/stickers, so that I can use them in the future.

I do have one question, though: how do you find people that are serious about penpalling? I'd love to find a penpal that I could talk to for an extended period of time, rather than just exchanging a few letters before it fizzles out. Sometimes you might not match well together, which is understandable, but is it very hit and miss?

I have heard about pen palling and have always wanted to try it out! It seems like a lot of fun! :D

I already have a lot of stationary and stickers to add, but I just don't know how to get started! Any tips would be great! :O
