Looking for a penpal?

I only started this project a month ago and I've already received more than 10 beautiful letters! Everytime I get mail it makes me so happy, it's so nice to get to know total strangers from all over the world. But it is also getting a little out of hand. I've received a lot of entries for this project and although I'm not sure if they're all going to write to me, I don't think I can keep up with that and be penpals with everyone. Don't get me wrong, I love writing letters but having more than 10 penpals is kind of busy and sometimes confusing. My project didn't necessarily start to find new penpals, I just wanted to receive and write snailmail with complete strangers. Of course I will always write you back but I'm not sure if I can keep up with everyone!

So I came up with an idea. Why not match my penpals together? I received some wonderful letters and some people seem to have a lot in common! If you're looking for a penpal and you like the letters that I got, this is probably the right adress for you. Just contact me (use the contact form in the menu) and tell me (us) a little bit about yourself. For example:

Hi! I'm Marlous, a 19-year-old girl from the Netherlands. I really like writing letters, photography and reading. *more information about yourself, tumblr/blog? interests? etc* Please leave a comment if you want to become penpals!
If you have written to me before, I can include a picture of your letter so people can see your amazing writing skills ;-). You can also send a picture of a handwritten note, or include pictures of yourself (make a little collage?) It's all up to you. I was inspired by this blog, so please take a look so you'll get the idea.

I'm still accepting new applications and of course I will always try to write you back but please, if you're looking for a long-lasting penpal you'd better find somebody else. Maybe through my blog? :)

Ha marlous, ik zou graag een oproepje willen doen voor een penpal. Kan ik een brief naar jou sturen via mail - uiteraard handgeschreven/ingescand?
