Travelling Notebooks Project – update
18 August 2012
Me and Emma (aka @Oh_Gosh) can’t believe how much love there has been for the ‘Travelling Notebooks‘ so far. We have people signed up to the project from all over England and the United States, from Scotland, Ireland, France, Jordan, the Czech Republic and now Australia.
Not only do we have loads of people signed up, but we have some amazingly talented people signed up.
Bloggers and tweeters and photographers who we have admired, mostly from a distance, for a long time. And new bloggers, tweeters and photographers who have signed up and now will be firm favourites in our reading and viewing lists. The project is doing exactly what we set out to do – to bring new people together. To create an excitement about writing and receiving post – and we haven’t even sent the notebooks out yet. Which brings me onto the point of the post;
We’ll be posting out a copy of the Missie Cindz Recipe, Ready and Snap notebooks to our first subscribers the week commencing the 27th August!
We will also be starting to email the first recipients with the details of where their notebook will be going next that week too (or maybe even before!).
Engage with your Travelling Notebook Partner
As we’d like this to be a community project it would be lovely if you could get involved and engage with your travelling notebook partner; check out their twitter feed – we have set up a Travelling Notebookers twitter list so you can find your notebook partner there; find out their blog, their Instagram or Flickr page. Maybe mention the person you sent it to when you blog, tweet or post your pictures (we all love seeing lots of photographs!). To keep the books moving, can we suggest that you try and complete your pages (max. two pages) and have the book posted within a month. We don’t have any MI5 style fancy tracking devices, so we’re trusting you to send the notebook on – let’s see how far the books can really go before finally returning back to me or either Emma!
To keep participants up to date with their notebook whereabouts and for those people keen to know what the ‘Travelling Notebooks’ are about in general, you’ll be able to find more details via the media channels below:
- The Blog
- Twitter: @MissieCindz (aka Cindy Cheung)
- Twitter: @Oh_Gosh (aka Emma Fisher)
- Instagram (by the hash tag #TravellingNotebooks)
- Signing up to the Travelling Notebooks E-newsletter
When you’ve finished your pages; tell us how you use your notebook companion. We would love to know your favourite recipes, see your snaps and we’ll sure be ready to read your daily musings – you can scan or photograph your page(s) along with a brief note and email these to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you tweet/instagram your pages, tag them with the #travellingnotebooks or #snailmailisnotdead.
We are both super excited and am counting down the days til the first posting date! – Missie Cindz and Emma :)
