Save Snail Mail and Dana in the Press!

A front page article in the Boston Globe Saturday about snail mail trends among younger folks quoted yours truly.  The article’s author, Anna Marden, found my blog and interviewed me about the “niche trend” of folks who grew up in the digital age happily engaged in regularly sending and receiving mail.

The article shares a few twenty somethings’ snail mail stories and it’s heartening to hear about young people so actively enjoying sending mail.  There’s hope for snail mail yet.

  1. Thank you so much for the link to the article. It was wonderful! I enjoyed every word. I hope it will encourage more folks to pick up their pen and paper and drop someone a quick letter.

    1. Glad you liked it. I’ve seen a lot of these little newspaper articles on the value of handwritten letters and the USPS. I think the strike in Canada and the woes of the USPS have made folks pay attention to the reasons for (and for some, the reasons against) having a national postal service. At the very least, letter writing is getting the attention it deserves!

    1. Hi Sarah. Thanks for reading! I have found that some of my friends and family aren’t big letter writers either. Maybe it’s always been that some folks are letter writers and others aren’t, digital age or not. Glad you’re one of us!
