Top 5 Inspiring Snapchat Accounts to Follow

Top 5 Inspirational Snapchat Accounts to Follow

Snapchat is my new obsession. I cannot get enough of the behind-the-scenes looks at peoples’ lives. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that it isn’t easy to find inspirational accounts to follow so I wanted to solve that problem! Here are 5 motivational and inspirational Snapchat accounts you should follow.

1) LoveSweatandFit
Katie is a southern California fitness professional and blogger who kills it on Snapchat. I love watching her days whether she’s filming a new YouTube video or just showing what her grocery haul is and chatting about her favorite products. Love her! Add her at: LoveSweatandFit

I’m a fan of Sophia Bush from her days on “One Tree Hill” and her Snapchat does not disappoint. She snaps lots of photos and videos on set of her TV show and highlights causes that she’s an activist for. Add her at: SophiaBushSnaps

I Want to Get to Know You & Send Some Happy Mail!

Hi friends! Long time, no talk! I’ve been super active over on Instagram, but not so much here on the blog. I hope you’ll follow me there so we can stay in touch more frequently.

Onto the topic for the day! I’ve been trying to figure out how to get to know each one of you a little better and I came up with an idea!

8 months ago I started HappsterMail, a pen pal program where I match up two happy people to write notes back and forth to each other. I am currently on hiatus from matching up pen pals as I am focusing on other projects, but will resume that program again next year. I love seeing those how those friendships formed and I want to take it up a notch!

HappsterMail

Now onto my newest project: I want to send YOU some happy mail now. Not only do I want to spread the love, but I also want to get to you know you personally! I’m going to start with sending 10 people mail and see how it goes. If all goes well, I’ll do it again and again. If you want me to send you some HappsterMail, all you have to do it follow this link to fill out a 2 minute form about yourself. I’ll pick 10 of you to send mail to at random. This should be fun!!

HappsterMail

I’m no expert by any means, but I promise to make them with lots of love!

HappsterMail Pen Pal Update

Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve written a formal blog post, but I wanted to pop in to show you what’s been happening ever since I announced HappsterMail. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here.

It’s been SO MUCH fun matching up pen pals. More people are wanting to be matched up each day and it makes me so happy to see! Here’s a peek at what some HappsterMail pen pals have been sending each other so far. Hopefully this will inspire you to write some snail mail to a friend or a pen pal!

If you want to sign up for the HappsterMail program, please click here. Heads up: It will take me a week or two to match you up!

Introducing HappsterMail Pen Pals

Ever since I started the Happsters 2+ years ago, I’ve wanted a way to connect members of the community. I recently came up with an idea to create a way for you to meet other Happsters in the most fun way possible! It’s a pen pal program for happy people! Basically I am going to match up Happsters based on similar hobbies, ages, etc. so that you can exchange letters and happy mail just like good old-fashioned pen pals!

Snail Mail - PaperedThoughts

I first came up with this idea when I saw @paperedthoughts on Instagram (see her pen pal mail above). She sends the cutest letters to people and uses hashtags like “#penpalswanted” and “#snailmailrevival”. I was blown away by how many people send these types of letters to pen pals all over the world. If you search “#snailmailrevolution”, it has over 100,000 photos tagged!

As you probably know, a large part of happiness comes from forming friendships and social connections. And what better way to do this than by connecting with the happiest people around the world through happy mail?

Announcing #HappsterMail. Here’s how it works:

1) Fill out the short survey here to tell me about yourself and what you’d like to find in a #HappsterMail pen pal.

2) Get matched with a #HappsterMail pen pal by me. I will email you both to let you know who it is. Isn’t the suspense killing you?!

3) Send your pen pal a letter filled with whatever you want inside. Suggestions include:

  • A nice note wishing them a great week
  • A long letter with fun facts about you and questions about your pen pal
  • It could include confetti
  • It could be decorated with doodles
  • Anything you want!

Share your mail by taking a picture and post it on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #HappsterMail so we can all see what you got (optional).

4) Keep sending letters back and forth for however long you want and make a friend for life. If you want another pen pal for some reason, just fill out the form again.

I’ve already asked some of the Happsters in the community if they would like to join and gotten an overwhelmingly positive response, so I can’t wait to get this started!

This is a picture of my letter going out to my first #HappsterMail pen pal, Shelley.
