January Mail Stats

January was a pretty slow mail month. I did get caught up on all of my replies to mail friends, which was nice. Being sick put me out of commission for almost two weeks!

I received quite a few pieces of mail from strangers. That seems to come and go in spurts but I appreciate it no matter what! I also received a lot of mail from folks who I used to write to regularly. It is nice to know they are okay and still want to be mail friends!

Out of the 12 letters I received, only one was sent internationally (from Australia!).

Out of the 15 letters I sent, four letters were sent outside of the United States.

Only one of the postcards I received was sent internationally (from Spain). The Spain postcard was from a Postcrossing swap.

Out of the 5 postcards I sent, 3 were sent out of the United States. All three postcards sent internationally were from Postcrossing swaps.

I am looking forward to February mail! I hope I will receive some nice letters from folks participating in LetterMo and I am looking forward to sending letters to strangers for LetterMo! Also, the first newsletter for the League of Extraordinary Penpals will be sent out tomorrow. If you haven't yet signed up to be a part of this awesome gang of superhero letter writers, you better do so! I have a feeling it is going to be a lot of fun. If you have signed up, make sure you introduce yourself on the party post!

I hope everyone had a lovely January!
