Recently Nerdfighteria has shown itself to being really made of awesome, it has also shown the power that the internet and individuals collaborating really have. In less than a week a Nerdfighter Penpal group was formed and people were matched up with nerdfighters from around the world – whether it be through snail mail or e-mail.
The enthusiasm and collaboration through document manipulation and creativity in making envelopes and cool things to each other was wonderful. I am more thankful that I got a P.O. Box!
There’s something special about receiving snail-mail and zines. They were handmade and just for you. The individual put time to craft the art. I’ve completely delved into the zine and diy community and wish I did sooner. Through joining this community but also being a long time snail-mailer I’ve learned a lot about shipping, posting, and even online business. Things that I would have not been able to learn unless I would have DONE it. It’s experiential learning.
Also, the learning that I receive from people around the world sharing their stories about a typical day – be it Sweden, France, or Egypt – is so exciting! The world is your classroom go out there and learn, teach, inspire!
Hope you’re all living a BellaVie!
