Article: A Letter To My Readers For The Handwriting Matters Campaign

When Catherine Ball asked me to handwrite a blog post to support the Handwriting Matters campaign I immediately said yes. I think this is a much needed and amazing campaign. On Pen Heaven you can read more about the campaign. I've decided to write a post about letter writing and have done it in the form of a letter to my readers.

  1. I love this post! Even though my Husband makes fun of me, I LOVE sending snail mail letters to my pen pals versus email. I love my handwriting and don't want to lose my beautiful penmanship.

  5. I've always been a letter writer and can't envisage a world where I didn't write letters or thank you notes. It is so much more personal. My Dad (81) died recently and once I had sent the initial emails to all his Skype pals around the world I followed up with a handwritten letter and a copy of the order of service. I didn't know most of these online friends but thought that as Dad obviously cared about them, then this was the least I could do to include them in the celebration of his life and final farewell.

  6. I feel the same way, Suze. Letter writing is becoming the list art of communication. I always write handwritten thank you notes & I love reading and writing. I have a large assortment of cards that I look forward to sending with a personal note. From the time I was ten, I wrote/received a letter to a pen pal weekly. I wish we'd stayed in touch. I still write love letters to my husband of thirteen years. I even mail them to him. And he still loves receiving them! ♡

  7. This was so fun to read your handwritten letter. So sad that handwriting is taking a back seat to the computer and typing. I remember buying an old book once and it had a couple of letters that had been written in the early 1900's between relatives in Iowa, United States. So cool to see the "small" but lovely things they shared with each other. :)

  9. Wonderful post! Very true indeed - there is something so special about receiving a handwritten letter/note compared to an electronic one! I still have a box of old letters from a childhood friend :)

  10. Ohmygoodness, your writing is so neat and pretty, it's like a font. The paper is so cute too. I have a lot of that kind of paper, but I never get the chance to use it, and even if I did, I'd feel like I'm shaming the perfect paper with my messy handwriting. I like to keep them in mint condition...

  11. This is such a wonderful post, and I love your handwriting! Of course, I've seen it before, because you sent me happy mail once. ^_^ I completely agree with this statement. I've had the same pen pal for the past 12 years, and I have another pen pal in Germany. I absolutely love getting mail and I'm still one of those people to send out postcards for birthdays and Christmas. It's definitely more special and more personal.

  12. I love this idea! Getting handwritten letters is such a nice feeling. You get to see a bit about the writer through the paper, pen they use and their handwriting. :)
