    Default Incowrimo 2020 anyone?

    Now we are firmly in 2020, anyone thinking of throwing their hat in the ring for the February letter writing madness?

    Last year was such a bust, Iím not joining in this year. The list seems too big and thereís nothing but geography to go on. It would be nice if there were a brief ďabout meĒ section for each potential pen pal.

    Sigh. Iím sad about this.

    Some people wrote things in the comments, but the comments have to be approved first on the one site... Oh, and hopefully that will be up and running proper for February. As for the main site, I dislike the way the comments are displayed with Disqus... much harder than joining a forum and being able to use the search function.

    I owe you about a dozen letters. If you have moved since 2017 can you re PM me an address. If you are still at same residence with the business you purchased I have an address and will try to catch up with a letter or postcard.

    I've never tried it, but I could. But like Chrissy, I don't/won't post my mailing address.

    As I write, not looking likely that the older project, LetterMo, will be up and running again (technical difficulties). The alternate inco site is delayed (hopefully all will be well... ). As for inco itself, well, last year, the site was updated in the last week of January. Hopefully, fun can be had elsewhere... wink wink!

    LetterMo is up and running. There are other sites running some February letter fun too.

    I will be doing Incowrimo again - I have a fair pile of letters to reply to (ahem), and a couple of people from the pen club to write to. If you don't have my address and want it, PM me!
