Featured blogger, Vinitha Dileep

In her own words, Vineetha has this to say

Born and brought up in Kerala,I dreamed to become a doctor, chose engineering, electrical engineering at that and became a software engineer by profession (Yeah, I know)!!! I got married to my friend from college and left my almost 2 year long job to join him in the US.  We are in UK for over a year now. As much as I miss being a working woman, I enjoy every moment spend with my family. I am not much of a traveling person but have been doing that quite a lot lately, against my wish I might add! I see more travels in the coming days. Blogging has given me friends to connect with, no matter where on the globe I am.  The blogging world helped me keep my sanity. Thank you guys! 

    Here is one of her recent posts , a poem from the heart:

Today, I will…

Why don’t you pop over and say hello?

Got Snail Mail? #Linkup today!

Snail Mail, Blogarhythm

Blog-A- Rhythm has been waiting for a long time to say this and I am thrilled to say that it’s finally here!

WE’VE GOT SNAIL MAIL!!!

Approximately two months ago, we decided in our Blog-a-rhythm group that it was high time we started cementing the online connections- in the offline world. What better way to do that than through the magic of snail mail?

I mean, who doesn’t like to walk down the path to that coloured box at the end of the driveway and open it to feel that heady rush of receiving a handwritten letter?

So, we did that! Yep.

We wrote snail mails to each other. No instant gratification. No ‘ping’ on your smartphone to say you’ve got a new message. We had about 26 interested members who threw their names into the proverbial hat. A random name generator picked and paired names. We then wrote snail mails- letters or postcards- to that person. And then we waited, with nail-biting anticipation for that letter to reach us!

Why we did it? Well, apart from being incredibly fun, I think this teaches us some valuable lessons.

  • Everything that’s good in Life is worth the wait.
  • Patience is really a virtue and we can use some of it in this world where we speak first and think later.
  • Writing by hand is so incredibly therapeutic. Try it. Today.
  • The personal touch you get from a handwritten note just cannot be replicated in the world of e-mail and smart messaging.

I know what you’re thinking. But, I didn’t write/get a snail mail. How is this fun for me? So what do you have to do?

Well, we have a Linky. YES!

If you’ve received a snail mail from anyone, either in the recent past or the long forgotten aeons of the distant decade, feel free to write about it.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Write a blog post about a snail mail that you received.
  2. Add pictures of the letter (optional)
  3. Link it up to the Linky below.
  4. Visit others on the linky and see the magic that snail mail has done for them.
  5. If the Linky closes, leave a link to your post in the comments here.

WAIT- It’s not over. You can still write a snail mail. YES! Today!

The Linky stays open for a whole month. So reach out to a blogger you like. Ask them for their postal address and dash off a letter in the mail today. With a month on your hands, you just know you have the time to do this.

Oh and please do share about this in your Blogging networks. That would be so cool!

ARE YOU GAME?
