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?

All About B-A-R

Welcome, welcome. If you are a Blogger , you’ve come to the right place.

Here, in a nutshell, is what Blog-A-Rhythm is all about. Do click the links to read. We are very glad to have you here and welcome you with open arms.

Introduction: Why Blog-A-Rhythm? 

The Members of B-A-R

WHAT WE DO HERE

Weekly Sharing Linkup 

Every Sunday, a linkup will open where you are welcome to add your links and visit other bloggers in the linkup. Linkup stays open till the following Saturday. Drop a comment if it pleases you, share if the post resonates with you and hey, follow the blog if it really touches a chord. We’re easy-going that way. No compulsion 😉

What our Blog Visits include

Each blogger is requested to visit at least 2 links from the linkup. Yep. Two links, you read that right. Once you have read, leave a comment on the blog and share it on social media, if you can.

*Note that we say ‘At Least‘. On a day when time permits, you may of course visit more. No problems at all 🙂

*If you are unable to comment on the blog (issues with G+ or Blogger comments etc), leave a comment on their Facebook page, where they would have shared the link.

Wordy Wednesday Prompt

Prompts will go up on each Wednesday on the blog and will have a linky tool. 100 words will be the requirement. Those who choose to write more are of course welcome to do so.

Here is the order of the prompts:

1st Wednesday: Word prompt

2nd Wednesday: Phrase prompt

3rd Wednesday: Sentence Prompt

4th Wednesday: Picture prompt

*5th Wednesday: Will be one of the above

All those who write to the prompts are invited to share your links to the linky tool 🙂

Blogger Focus

Periodically, we will pick one blogger from B-A-R to train the spotlight on.  We will have a set of standard questions which he/she will answer related to blogging/ their motivation and so on.

We felt this would be a good way to know the person/ the face behind the blogger.


 

So, hope this answers your questions about B-A-R!

No? You have something you want to know?

Please drop us a line in the comments  and we will get back to you.
