Wow, I can’t believe that September has already come and gone! This month was a blur, particularly the beginning of the month when I was prepping for and then attending Fashion Week events- which lead me to choose fashion week as September’s theme. Although I sent out my letter a few days late, once all the madness had died down a bit, it was nice to have a moment to sit down and write about my first fashion week experience for my penpal.

Both Christine and Catie wrote about the Correspondence Club this month, so I highly encourage you to check out their posts! Also, if you’re currently a member of the club, you’ve already heard about the special perk that I’ve organized with Kaitlyn of isavirtue (if you didn’t hear about it, shoot me an email to get more information)!

We’re starting a new round this month (you’ll have the same partner for October, November, and December) so if you’ve been waiting to join the Correspondence Club, now is certainly the time!  Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for October?  We’d love to have you!  If you would like to participate in October, please send me your information by midnight on Sunday (September 30th at 11:59pm EST).

For the month of August, I decided to shake things up a bit. I sent out a survey to the Correspondence Club members and based on their feedback, made a few changes to the structure of the club. This month, we had a theme, which was Hometown Pride. With all of the Olympics coverage going on, I thought it would be a fitting topic for each of us to talk about our favorite aspects of our home cities. Not only could you talk about your hometown pride in your letter, but the idea was that your little gift would also match the theme and represent some part of your home city.

As we finish up the sixth month of the Correspondence Club, we are still going strong! I thought it was time to take a step back and evaluate the Correspondence Club, so I asked the members to take a short survey and send me some suggestions on how we can improve. I’m super excited to introduce some changes for August that I hope will help things run a bit smoother and still keep it interesting! If you’re already a member, look out for a more detailed email from me in the next couple of days.  If you’re not already a member but want to join, you still have time!

I loved reading Anastasia’s post about her first month of participating in the CClub! Suki did a fantastic post about what she sent to her partner this month as well! If you decide to blog about the Correspondence Club too, please do send me the link because I want to share your posts! :)

Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for August?  We’d love to have you!  If you would like to participate in August, please send me your information by midnight tonight (July 31st at 11:59pm EST).
