    What are the benefits of writing a letter to a friend instead of communicating electronically?

    Do you think that there are advantages to writing a letter by hand and then mailing it to a friend or relative instead of using communication methods such as email, Skype or a phone call, and if so, what are they?

    The only advantage that I can think of is the incredible pleasure of knowing that someone cared enough to hand write a letter and snail mail it to you so you could keep it to reread your writing when you miss them.

    I think it is more personal to write a letter to someone. It shows that you care about them as you took the time to sit down and compose a letter to them.  Electronic communication is quick and fast, but may not be as personal unless you are on Skype, where you can actually see the person and have a conversation as if you were face to face with them.  A phone call is not the same because you can't see the person you are talking to.

    IN my opinion there is a benefit to reading someone's hand writing. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they write. I have been pleasantly surprised to see that someone I thought was shallow was actually an awesome scripter. If you looked at my hand writing you would see my impatience as i hurry to the next word, leaving a hard to read mess on the page for someone to decipher if they can. Ha! So glad i can type.

    I love getting a letter or card in the mail.  It means that person took time to sit and write me personally from the heart.  It is something you can hold in your hand and read over and over anytime without having to log in, enter password, etc.

    While many 21st century folks may ask "What's the point of discussing the benefits of writing a letter by hand anyways?" a handwritten letter has a certain charm that electronic communication cannot replace. Let's find out what makes writing by hand better than email, tweets, chat messages and the lot. Here's why and how the pen is mightier and warmer than the keyboard. read more
