LetterMo 2014: Let's do this!

Since I have a tendency to bite off more than I can chew, this year I have decided to take part in LetterMo

LetterMo began in 2010 and takes place in February each year. A participant is required to send a piece of mail on every day the post runs. As Australia Post operates Monday to Friday (we do not have weekend delivery in Australia), this equates to 20 post days, and therefore 20 pieces of mail. 

If you read this blog, you would have noticed that I am somewhat partial to letter writing. I thought LetterMo might be a good opportunity for me to send some snail mail to those people with whom I would normally either text, email or Facebook (and let's be honest: I hate all those things).
But, alas! I am also a slave to the wage, and during the week I simply do not have the time and/or energy to write a full-length letter (and for me, a full-length letter can be pretty darn long). So, I have decided to incorporate postcards into the challenge. On the days that I work, I will send a postcard to someone. On the days I am at home, I will send letters. I know this is the ONLY way I am going to send something every day.

Postcrossing cards will not be included. Since I send these out every week anyway, including them would kind of feel like cheating.

At the end of the month of February, I will share with you my success - or failure, whichever it may prove to be!

If you'd like to have a crack at the LetterMo challenge too, you can find out more information here.
But HURRY! It starts next week!


  1. I just signed up Sarah. I send loads of mail anyway so I figured why not. If only international postage was a little cheaper.

    1. Oh, hello, fellow LetterMo newbie! Are you as excited about this as I am? I've spent the last two thinking primarily about what I'm going to send and who I'm going to send it to!

      Yes, the international postage is a bit of a killer, but I figure that for one month I'm allowed to totally blow my postage budget. It is only one month, after all!

      Best of luck!

    2. I am excited and I have a list of who I'm sending to. I don't think I can stick to just one item of post per day. I'm going to try for everyday of February, not just the weekdays when we have post.
      Have fun
