One of the biggest misconceptions about LEP is that it's primarily intended to match you with penpals. There are lots of great sites out there where you can find penpals (Penpal of the Week, Send Something, and Swap-bot are just a few) and while there is a swap component to LEP, it's actually just a small part of what we do.
The heart of LEP is as a community of fantastic penpals (we're currently at 144 members and counting!). Our members are so passionate about snail mail, and LEP is part of our way of celebrating them as "superheroes" for being part of the snail mail revolution. So that's why we're hosting a LEP Party!!
And you're invited!
The party starts... well, you're here reading this so, the party actually starts right now and will last as long as you want it to.
This is a party post! This means that if you want to start talking to your fellow LEP members, introduce yourself by leaving a comment. If you've done something extraordinary lately, brag about it to your fellow members by leaving a comment. If you need to pair up with a partner in order to fight a big enemy, leave a comment! If you tried the bean dip and it tasted like dirt... you got it, leave a comment and warn your fellow LEP members. Julie and Laura have done enough talking, it's time for our members to start introducing themselves and talking to each other.
We'll still be around though... mingling, probably hanging out near the DJ booth and begging him to play awesome tunes from the 80s. [We love Rick Astley. We're probably some of the only people in the world who enjoy getting Rickrolled.]
Have fun! And be careful with the party punch—it makes you go invisible for a short period of time.
