Monster Joke Month 2017 - Welcome, Ideas and a Prize!


Monster Joke Month is back! This is the third year of me hosting Monster Joke Month since I launched it in 2015 and I still absolutely love it. (You can see my original announcement here).

For those of you new to Monster Joke Month, an explanation - During the month of October, any post that you send you put a joke about monsters either on the envelope or in the letter (or both) and you take a picture and use the #s #MonsterJokeMonth and #MJM2K17 on all social media so I can see what people are sending and receiving. I like to do a round up of some of my favourite I've seen at the end of October. This year I've also decided to step it up a bit and I will be choosing my favourite monster joke and I will send the person who wrote it a prize! I'll announce the prize later in the month so keep your eyes peeled for that!

If you don't normally send post but want to get involved, I have plenty of ideas for you to be able to join in.

 - Sign up for a pen pal at IGGPPC (International Geek Girl Pen Pal Club) - there's nothing more satisfying than sending and receiving old school snail mail. Don't let the name fool you, both males and females are more than welcome! It's also a wonderful community and there's a lot more going on than just pen pals, so check it out! 

 - Send a note, card or letter to a friend or family to let them know you're thinking about them or just to say hi!

 - Sign up at Postcrossing. Postcrossing is a super fun service where you can send a postcard and then you receive a postcard in return (it's explained much better on their site!) I've received and sent postcards from China, USA, the Phillipines and Finland just to name a few of the places. 
 - Regardless of Monster Joke Month Post Pals is a wonderful charity that helps brighten the lives of sick children through the power of snail mail. (I know this is a UK based charity, but I'm sure there are similar charities in other countries).

 - Send a card or letter to a soldier. There are hundreds of sites where you can send a morale boosting letter to a soldier overseas and I'm sure they'd enjoy a good monster joke too!

These are just a few of the many, many ways you could join in on Monster Joke Month! If you have any other ideas though, please make sure to put them in the comments. Also let me know if you're planning on joining in, the more the merrier!

Don't forget to post your pics on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and be sure to use the hashtags #MonsterJokeMonth and #MJM2K17 if you feel like tagging me, I'm @NerdishMum on both twitter and Instagram and my page is Life Of A Nerdish Mum on Facebook.

I can't wait to see all your jokes and the fun mail that you send this year!
