Let's face it. Some of us, no matter how hard we try, cannot dot our "i"'s or cross our "t"'s as well as someone else we know. Some are born naturally with the talent of flawless handwriting, whereas majority of people (no matter how many years they've been writing) have the "chicken-scrap" style of writing. Some may think that with technology advances and e-mailing that the use of handwriting is not needed. But, here are 3 reasons why you should practice handwriting:
Now, that being said. There are some instances were handwriting should not be used for communication. Let's be drastic and think of if you were about to interview a candidate for an important job position for your company. How would you feel if they came into the office and hand you a handwritten resume? Unique? Yes. Effective? No. Handwritten communication has a special place in the world, so we should take advantage of it when we can - we just need to be aware when other forms of communication is needed.

They do not care how you dot your "i"'s or cross your "t"'s. Remember, "it's the thought that counts". If you absolutely cannot bare your handwriting, check-out Love From Letters.
