I figured Google might be able to help me out with this, so I opened a window and searched "pen pal". Nearly every website that came back provided millions of ways to find an email pen pal, but that just isn't the same. After a few different variations of the search, I finally came across a website called Pen Pal Party.

On this website, you can make a profile and describe the kind of pen pal you are looking for. Once you have a profile, you can browse through the other people on the site and contact them to see if they want to be your pen pal. So far, I have posted a profile and I have contacted one person. I have also gotten five or six emails from people that want to write me!
The emails are all so sweet, I might just end up with too many pen pals. Let me just show you a little glimpse of one.
