So i've tried all sorts of penpal websites only to find that they are mainly used by people wanting to travel or learn different languages, but what I really crave is a fellow permaculturist/artistic type to write back and forth with. I write in old style cursive hand writing, and I think the thing that makes letters interesting is not just the words but adding art, pressed flowers, recipes, pictures, etc.
Are there any out there that also enjoy sharing in this way? I am female, Canadian, late 20s, married, no kids.
I do penpals - my most recent success at finding penpals was through sendsomething.net. I'd like to say I'll write to you, but at the moment with 11 penpals and other writing projects on the go I really don't have time to take on any more writing! However if you can't find anyone else after a little while, feel free to nudge me. We did have a penpal thread here awhile ago - lets see if I can find it... found it - https://permies.com/t/56830/Penpals#478263 not much there. I think a problem finding penpals on this site is that people here are so busy!
I would be thrilled to have a homestead penpal!
Though I have sent scores of letters to friends and family, if I get one back a year I count myself lucky. Our homestead is still new, so a lot of letters might include some version of "Well, that didn't work..." If you are interested just pm me for the address. This may be the perfect excuse to get new ink for my fountain pen 😁
I would love to have a homesteading penpal!
Count me in! DH and I are doing our best but find ourselves struggling when we look around and no one else lives anything near like we live. (Off-grid) No electricity and no wind or solar power. ....well...we have head lamps and lanterns that recharge with solar...
