Thread for e-mail penpals/ other ways to connect

Hi everyone,
You might have seen this mesage on other forums. I've seen so many e-mail addreses around this site it's hard to keep track of them. So I thought I'd start a thread where people can either post their e-mails or any other ways we can all connect like e-mail lists and chat lines.
A good list that I'm on is blind penpals
blind-penpals-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
Leave the subject line and mesage blank and just hit send. There are other good lists if you search yahoo groups.
My e-mail is samnelson1@verizon.net

There is also
www.zonebbs.com
It is an interactive site for the blind, with lots of blind and some sighted users, so people can also make friends there and do other things like play games, post on the boards, etc.

No, the RNIB site is not restricted only to people in the UK. Anyone from any country could join, but when you look for penpals, once you read the first page, you need to go back to see the rest of the pages one by one.

Hi Nocedy,
Thanks so much for these resources. I just subscribed to their magazine online and signed up on the website as a penpal.
For the RNIB thing do you need to be from the UK to use it? I'm in the US.
Thanks again.
