In today's world of emails, texts, and apps the art of the letter has slipped away. I used to love getting "fun mail"; now I get bills.
But thanks to my blogger friend Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean, fun mail is back and it's been blogger healthified! Lindsay created a blogger penpal system that started this month. She assigns bloggers and readers a "penpal" and you send that person a $15 package of your favorite healthy (or not so healthy) goodies and other fun things. At the end of the month each blogger writes about it and the love grows.
Food, Sweat, and Beers. What a cute blog name! She's a graduate of UNC who blogs about food, her love of Les Mills classes, and craft beer!
My package included some homemade love to which was fudge peanut butter brownies with a pretzel crust. Salty and sweet? Very, very good! Jordan was inspired to make them from another blog; Jessica at How Sweet It Is!
A BIG thank you to Jordan for such a sweet package! Please follow her blog and her tweets too!
I think the blogger penpal was a GREAT idea! It strengthens the bonds in the blogging community and it gave me some special treats to look forward to. I'll be joining in next month too!
Want to join? It's open to bloggers AND just blog readers. Just follow up with Lindsay's instructions below:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact each other and get mailing addresses and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
