Hello everyone! Hope everyone is doing good! Life has been grand no complaints, slow mail, but hey its all good. I'm happy with the mail I have received and the new friendships!

seee...this is just a picture of some of the mail I have recieved in the last two weeks, with the acception of a couple of letters. I haven't checked my PO BOX this week, since I think Thursday so I am sure I have some letters!!! YAY! Can't wait until I get off and go to the post office.

So I have decided to drop swap-bot. I had joined swap-bot to really get into the mailing thing..HOWEVER after this last swap I have decided swap-bot.com is not the place for me. My first reason for deciding to leave swap bot is international mailing. Its not cheap to mail internationally espicially mailing boxes of items. I guess I could remedy that by not joining those swaps. But none the less its not cheap and then when you have mailed packages then your flaked on..WOW..thee worst. Secondly and lastly, I recieved a email from a swap coordinator from a swap I joined and lets just say it was far from nice. Now the Jesus in me said do not respond to her foolishness. However my mind said get her together. I was perplexed as to why she emailed me in this manner becuase I hadnt flaked on the swap. It wasn't even pass the due date. I did inquire about the email and she said she was making sure I didn't flake and I took the email wrong. However since i'm grown and don't have time for such tom foolery I have decided to disengage myself from swap-bot I guess that just how the cookies crumble sometimes. I still have my mailings, my blog, and postcrossing. Enough mail to keep up with. How has you all experience with swap-bot been?

But in other news! I'm in my 5th quarter of my Master's program! I'm almos done. The end of the year I should be done! (cue round of applause) Just thought I would share that tad bit of information with you all. Anyway I hope you all enjoy your day! Happy Mailings!

  1. If you enjoy randomly mailing people and do not expect a reply, I found sendsomething to be up my alley. I am so busy now with mail that I rarely use it except to send messages to people I already write.

  2. I had a similar situation with swap-bot and this is why I don't deal with that site any longer!I discovered swap-bot just as I began swapping and I joined a group through a fellow swapper. I didn't know much about the site and before I had the time to research it, there was a not so nice blanket message put out to the group that said something about "if you are going to join the group don't be a flaker...there is a swap for everyone to join". I was offended by that and took it personally since I was the most recent to join. I decided then not to involve myself with swap-bot as I don't need the pressure of someone feeling like they need to be the swapper police! I am doing this for fun, because I want to, not because I have to!

  3. Wow I am really happy for you.
