When you write a personal letter to a family member or a friend do you handwrite it or type it? It depends on wether or not I am sending an email or a letter via snail mail.Plus I think that handwritting it is more personal. What do you think?

Hello dfollin! I would rather choose to receive a letter which is handwritten than a letter through typing. I usually wrote an email to my husband but if there's a special occassions, I made it sure that it is handwritten and send it through snail mail. I guess we appreciate more the letters which is handwritten because you will really know the sincerity of the person. I don't know why, but that's what I feel everytime I receive a handwritten letter of my husband.

I think that handwriting is much more personal but I have to type all of my letters because my handwriting is awful. My employees joke that the ability to read my writing is job security! I use email for almost all of my correspondence these days. Not sure what it is but I hate to write letters but emails? I can do that all day long.

of course i write in handwritten. it is nice to see to them that we have given an effort to write with the sweat. sometimes we never see that they appreciated it but for me that is my belief.

I usually use email but if I write a letter, I actually hand write it. It is more personal.

since we are now in the age of computer, I use email when I write to my sister and my brother. I find it easier and it will reach them in a minute. But when I write to my parents, I wrote it by hand because they have no access to computer and if they do, they don;t know how to use it too. LOL. Yes, it is more personal when yo use your hand writing to relay your message. That's what I like in it.

Type-written letters are only for business. If you're writing a close friend would you write them on the computer and then print it out just to send it in a letter through snail-mail? Think of it this way: if you would send this person a Christmas card and write them a little message, write them a letter.

I most usually handwrite those. I do type some letters out but when I do that, I send it to them in an email.
