It has never been easier with today’s technology to keep in touch with people has it?
Just a few thumb strokes and an SMS text message can be winging its way to a phone anywhere in the world.
Similarly, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter also make it so easy to catch up with friends in an instant.
As we live now in such a fast paced world, none of these ways of catching up with our friends and family take us very long.
There is, however, another method of communication that has been around for far longer than the mobile phone and the Internet
What is it?
It is the humble handwritten letter, of course.
People have been writing handwritten letters for centuries.
According to Handwritten Letters.com, the 1st recorded handwritten letter was by Persian Queen Atossa in around 500 BC.
It might take far more time to write a letter and take it to the post box but ask yourself the following question:-
When you pick the post off the mat , which type of envelope are you most likely to open first? Would it be the one with the handwritten address per chance?
How about making someone’s else day and get a pen and paper out to write them a letter?
