  1. YES! This is my first year participating! I already have my post for this week plotted out 🙂

  2. i first heard about this great event a few weeks ago. In preparation, I have already purchased my (Batman) stamps and could really use these rubber stamps you are giving away to put the finishing touches on my stationary and envelopes. Thanks for the givaway!

  3. I’ve never participated, but I do have a few letters that I really ought to respond to. Good reminder to get going on that!

  4. This is my first year participating in the month of Letters challenge. I’m trying to get in a habit of writing letters and notes to people instead of sending emails and texts. The stamps would be a fun thing to add to my correspondence. I’m hoping that I can encourage my friends and family to start writing as well.

  5. This is my second time participating in LetterMo. The first time was 2013 and I’m still writing to a few of the people I met in the LetterMo forums <3

  6. Its my first year and I joined the LWA! Might as well get credit for my correspondence with my Grandma and love of fountain pens! 🙂

  7. This is my first year participating. It was late last night, but I made sure to write a thank you note I’ve been meaning to get to and it will go out in today’s mail, so I am on track so far 🙂

  8. First time I am an active member of this ‘social media’ but my first letter to my wife went down a storm so I’m already super happy to have found out about it.

  9. I write letters and notes now and then throughout the year, but I have never participated in A Month of Letters or InCoWriMo. In fact I’ve never written more than 1 letter a month! Well I do owe some thank you notes.

  10. Yes! It’s my first time participating. I’m planning to use my dip pen for my letters 🙂

  11. This is my 2nd February letter a day year, and I think this blog is the reason I found out about it. If I don’ win the stamps I will buy one or two during the next few months. Thanks for last Fridays reference to the Marvel Agent Carter Show.

  12. Yep, it’s my first year! I’ve done NaNo three or four times but never “finished”…and recently I’ve picked up a few penpals (and several postcards) so I figured this would make acquiring an epistolary habit easier.

    So far I’ve written two postcards and a letter, though I haven’t posted the letter yet. I’ve got another postcard and a package planned for later on in the month, but I definitely need to do more planning!

  13. This is my second year participating. I do a combination of writing letters, letters to my colleagues, and postcards in order to send one every day of the 28 days.

    So far I wrote one letter to Matt Armstrong at The Pen Habit. But I have another in the works to one of my regular pen pals (someone I started writing to last year). That’s the best part of InCoWriMo: the new friends you make.

  14. My first year in the letter writing activities, but it won’t be my last!

    I’d love to win a set of these. They would be awesome!

  15. Yep! First year here too. Having way too much fun already. Cleaned out one of my fountain pens and am ready for another letter today!

  16. This is my first year participating. Thanks for making me aware of this event. I look forward to your daily posts. Fun and informative!

  17. This is my first year participating in the February letter-writing activities! I’m so excited. Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  18. This is my second year participating in the Month of Letters, and I have met some amazing people. I hope to meet a few more this year.

  19. This will be my second year. I found that letter writing month quickly becomes letter writing year as correspondence continues.

  20. This is not my first year participating in the February letter-writing activities. I am taking up the challenge for a second year, last year was my first to complete the InCoWriMo. It’s fun. Thank you for the chance to win this awesome giveaway.

  21. UGH. Premature submit. What I meant to say was…I love these. Hoping to combine them with the set of stamp frame stamps I’m planning on buying because I want to do my first year of A Month of Letters right (even if I may miss a day or two)!

  22. I participated in Lettermo the past 2 years, but I’m not putting any pressure on myself this year. I plan to use February to catch up on letters I owe and sending out way overdue gifts. It may add up to a month’s worth of mail anyway.

  23. Today is my my home office re-organization day. When I was trying to figure out the best place to store the felt pens I use for flip chart presentations I decided to do an online search for suggestions on good ways to store them. That’s how I discovered your website. It’s really well done, and thanks for sharing your information with the public.
    I’d love to have my name entered into your draw as I use stamps frequently. A decorated card/letter/envelope makes personal mail that much more special, especially when fewer and fewer things are sent by ‘snail mail’.

  24. Great reminder that this is letter writing month! I have plans to write my grandmother several, along with my best friend, and hopefully a new love interest if he’ll give me his mailing address. I love these stamps and they are so ‘air mail’ cool in style. Love them. (

  25. It’s my first year participating and I’m super excited! I’m restocking up on supplies this week and I would LOVE to add stamps to my arsenal!

  26. This IS my first year participating! I didn’t know it even was a Mo this month until I read your blog 🙂

  27. Unofficially participating here – I’m writing letters for my significant other to open while I am away for most of the month.

  28. This is my first year! So far I’ve been keeping up diligently writing a letter a day and I’m really loving it

  29. I’m in InCoWriMo for the first time this year, and I’ve put Cincinnati, Ohio, on the map, according to the InCoWriMo email I received. Got to go, it’s time for another letter writing session.

  30. This is my third year participating, and I’ve loved it every year! Can I just say that Good Mail stamp is pretty much adorable. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. 🙂

  31. This is my first year and a great way to use my fountain pens. I am focusing a lot of my time with this on handwriting thank you cards. The world could use some more gratitude. Thanks for the great blog.

  32. Love the stamps! Yes, this is my first year participating in InCoWriMo and I couldn’t be more excited! Thanks for the chance to win!

  33. These stamps would be an excellent addition to my 2015 goal of writing a letter a week to my BFF in ND- she’s love to know that my letters are “good mail!”

  34. Hi. Have been writing letters for a few years now to a pen-pal and fellow Mail Art aficionado (sp?). We write 2 – 3 per month. Plus I send hand-made greeting cards for various occasions. Love mail art and mail related rubber stamps. Have followed your blog for a few years because I too enjoy ink pens. 🙂 Ann M.

  35. First time participant here 🙂 I’m also new to the fountain pen and stationary world. I can’t believe I was missing out on high quality writing instruments and paper all this time! Also, wellappinteddesk is an awesome site. 😉
