In March 2017, a simple idea turned into one of A&D's most popular weekly features ever. Premised on the idea that "we are all letters," POstables of all age, and all walks of life, bravely shared their stories of life, love, struggle and triumph. Over 30 people have contributed to the Living Letters series over the course of this year.
Just when you thought this annual tradition couldn't get any better, your fellow POstables (JT & Crissy) proved you wrong. Upgrading Mailbox Madness 2017 from the bracket model, this year's weekly voting boasted interactive elements celebrating favorites moments, best guest stars and everything in between. It culminated in a grand finale hosted by you, POstables nation, who announced the winners in creative self-made videos for each category.
Big Year For Big Series
Ask POstables what they remember most from A&D this year, and, besides Living Letters, they're likely respond not with a single post, but with a series.
An intellectual deep-dive into Lost Without You, the Wilderness series struck a serious cord with people who connected with the journeys of Joe, Oliver, Shane and Norman throughout the course of the film, and reflected on their own lives in the process. Repeatedly referenced in Living Letters, the Wilderness series prompted people to take risks, find ways to move forward, or perceive situations differently.
A little over two years after its launch, A&D celebrated its 500th blog post. And, in the spirit of what the blog has become, one POstable took a unique approach to help celebrate, creating a crowd-sourced, Living Letter retrospective of heartfelt reflections that truly overwhelmed this blogger.
What will you remember most this year about the POstables fandom in 2017? Feel free to share your favorite moments in the comments and keep the conversation going!
