You've Got Snail Mail for My 1st Anniversary

My blog is turning ONE on the 24th and I want to do a little something to celebrate it's birthday. And remembering the wonderful reaction of two of my blogger friends (Sey and Mayen) to the cards I sent them, I decided to do a similar thing for my anniv. 
I am so glad when I read this blog contest from Sey of 14th Street (the contest was created by Tb of Year 31).  Now I don't have to think of the mechanics coz it's all here! 

To join, simply read the instructions below. The rules are simply awesome. And there's no limit to how many blogger friends you choose and what you send them. With this game, it's the thought that counts =)

1.  Write a blog post announcing that you're participating. 

2.  Copy these rules and the above icon into your post.

3.  Ask people to comment if they are willing to participate on their own blog.  Sorry, but you MUST have a blog to join in on the snail mail action.

4.  Choose a winner (or two or three) from your comments section. You can choose your winners however you like--at random, first comment, whoever lives the farthest--it's your blog, do what you want!

5.  Go shopping (or scavenging)!  Pick out items that are easy to mail and cost under $5.  Be thrifty, be creative.  Got something good lying around the house?  Send that!  Mailing your gift to another country or region?  Send a local candy or snack item!  In this case, it really IS the thought that counts.

6.  Mail those items to your chosen winner(s), and one to the person who sent you a gift (if you received one).  Send a little note with the gift--show off your (little-used) handwriting!

7.  No need to tag other bloggers.  The game will be passed along through the posting of snail mail.

8.  You don't have to be chosen to participate.  If you want to join in the fun but nobody mailed you anything, just start with #1 and away you go!

VERY IMPORTANT:  By commenting and saying that you are willing to participate, you are promising to pay it forward.  Please only join in if you are willing to give your address (through private email) to the blogger whose blog you are commenting on.

I'll be sending Cath Kidston stuff, pics of which I'll be posting on my other blog on Wednesday the 18th. I will choose three blogger friends in random and would ask for their postal addresses (via email, of course) after announcing their names. I will reveal those names on my blog anniversary post.
I'm looking forward to my next trip to the post office =) Thanks everyone in advance! 

 I am not requiring anyone to send me anything in return, I appreciate that postage to the UK is expensive. I would be happy to know that you received the gift and that you carry on with the game =)


  1. Awww, thanks sis. The cards you sent made me really happy and excited. It rekindled my love for snail mail. It brought back memories from the past, those day when snail mail is the most abused way of communication. No www and no cellphone yet.

  5. Sis! Ang lakas ang charm mo, I finally decided to join and will really, really squeeze this in on my crazy schedule hehe.  Kaya ko to!  Nakahabol pa ba ako?  Challenging talaga ito but it's really fun.  I love snail mail too so sabi ko I have to do this  ;-) May deadline ba ang pag-post sa blog? :)
