I’m Nova and from today onwards I’m going to endeavour to send a card in the mail everyday. Some days the card will be for a birthday, an anniversary, a thank you, a congratulations and some days it may be for no reason at all other than to say ‘hello’.
I’ve been lurking in blogland for a while, enjoying the writings of others, threatening to have my own and finally today I’ve done it! I am a blogger! I have been a journal writer for ever so it really does seem like the sensible move to make. I wanted a reason for a blog though, a blog with a purpose so to speak, and so it came to me last night that I’m always sending mail, why not set myself a challenge and send a out a card in the mail everyday.
I signed up to a card sending service last year and I must say I love it – it’s the best thing since sliced bread in fact. I’ve always sent lots of mail but since using the card service I send more – not quite one a day but that’s all about to change…..
The best thing is by the time I have finished this blog entry the first card will be on it’s way and I didn’t even have to leave my computer! Yep, it’s as easy as sending an email but so much nicer don’t you think for the receiver to actually hold something in their hand to read. I love to get mail, it always makes my day when in amongst the yukky bills there is a personal letter, so now I’m paying it forward.
My first card is for my husband, Andy. It’s his birthday at the end of the week. I’ll post an image of his card once he’s received it. I’ll do that with most of the cards otherwise it will be a bit of a give away it the receiver happens to read my blog.
