a 2nd blog & a giveaway!

I've been praying about a new project for awhile now. I feel led to start a really neat new blog but now I want opinions and suggestions from you, my readers!

I've already started the new blog but haven't published it quite yet.
My idea is this:
I will write one letter to someone new every day.
The blog title will simply be, "Letters From Ramee."
I will write letters to everyone; ranging from my closest family members and friends to people I dont know quite so well, to celebrities, to random people.

The idea started because I have always written since I was a little girl. I would write my mom and dad letters expressing my dearest and most intimate thoughts or worries. Still to this day I find myself expressing my inner vulnerabilities in a letter. Letters touch people in a different way than anything else, I believe.
I want to give a gift to everyone in my life that has ever touched me somehow. If something should ever happen to me, they will always have my words. My letters.

Here is where you come in!
--Does this sound like a good idea?
--Is this a blog that you would visit and read?
--Do you want a letter written to you?
--Any other suggestions of people that I should write to?
--When do you want to see the blog debut?

Leave me a comment with your thoughts and opinions and you could be entered into a random drawing for a small fall craft to hang in your home this season! I'll go through comments and choose a winner by Monday morning! Thanks friends. I love you all!!!

Hi Ramee! I think this is a great idea! You are a fantastic writer and it would be nice to see your letters. I know you don't know me well, but you're more than welcome to write a letter to me and my family. I would love to see multiple letters to your kids as they get older. I love the idea of writing to celebrities as well! I think you'll have a lot fun doing this!

I think it sounds like a good idea! I would definitely read it. Because I would like to see what you would say to some celebrities hahahaha. You wouldn't have to write a letter to me. I'd just enjoy reading all the others.

I think it's an awesome idea! And you're right, letters do touch people in many different ways. Who knows, maybe a letter written to one could also impact another?

I think that is really an interesting idea! I always find it easier to write letters and express myself when I can write a letter and organize my thoughts better. I think there are so many options of people to write to. Write to people you see suffering in the news, or in the hospital, maybe inmates. I am sure you could inspire so many with your words.. I'd definitely read!

I think its a really great idea. I'm thinking you need a second blog to replace "The resting place" which i must admitt i miss.
