I thought it would be super nice to have a little LGBT swap on here for the Holidays. Would anyone else be interested? I think it would another great way to connect with each other. I'm not sure how to carry it out though, if there aren't a lot of people interested we could just get a list of everyone's addresses etc. and send out cards, or we could have a buddy or two and send out small little gifts... hmm. Anyone have suggests or input??

dont know about a swap idea

but, i used to belong to a site that is long past closed down... that was for snail mail penpals. in fact, i met one of my best friends via penpaling... that was 10 years ago.

but then, i love to write more than i like email, etc... something baout a handwritten letter... to me is so much more personal... and something i can keep forever... as with friends that have passed on.

I would love to send cards to my LGBT friends. :)  If you do a card swap, please let me know (if you don't mind a mere supporter participating...)!

Kristi -- I agree. It's kind of why I wanted to start something like this. Handwritten snail mail really forms a great connection. If you ever want another penpal let me know :)

L.G. -- if there is a swap OF COURSE you can join. I apologize for leaving the "A" out when I said LGBT. :)

cool...well... how many would want to do this penpal thing..maybe we can send our addresses to one person , whoever wants to volunteer, that can put it all on one page..... then we can write everyone if we want...

if we do that though...i'd like the nicknames also included...lol..i usually remember the nicks because they seems to suit the personalities moreso than the real names...lol.

Yep, that sounds great. Anyone that wants to participate can send me their address as well as their email address. Then I can send everyone an email with everyone's addresses and nick names :)
