For all of you who have e-mailed me over the past few months, asking when we were going to have another round of Blogging By Mail, your time has come. The global, non-digital event has returned!
When I started Blogging By Mail, back before any of the other postal-blogging events did, I might add, I didn’t know it would be as popular as it was. The first round had 26 people. Subsequent rounds had more than 100. It takes time and a vast amount of organization to coordinate packages going from Manila to New York and Auckland to Indiana. But I’m sure you don’t want to hear about the boring details. We’re leaving all that to the host of this round, Stephanie from Dispensing Happiness.
Stephanie has posted all the guidelines for packages and how to sign up, so read them carefully! You must e-mail her (and not me) to participate. Sign-ups will last from now until August 25th, and all packages must be shipped by September 15th, at the latest.
This event is a chance to swap a few of your favorite goodies, either local or homemade, with someone somewhere else in the world. I do ask, however, that you all profusely thank Stephanie for organizing this round. I know she’s going to do a brilliant job, so we might as well thank her ahead of time – what else will we have to do while waiting to find out who we’ll be sending our packages to?
