Hello again, Sky Pip ! 🙂
Recently I saw a post by one of my penpals on Facebook, talking about a site called Postcrossing dot com. On the site, people sign up and say in their profile/etc. where they are willing to send postcards to, and a bit about themselves. You can choose, as far as I can tell, to send postcards only within your home country, or worldwide.
When you click on a button that confirms that you want to send a postcard, Postcrossing then assigns you a person to send it to. I marked that I wanted to send postcards to countries outside the U.S. So far I have sent one postcard each to people in Germany and Russia. I clicked on the button to be assigned to someone today, and I was assigned another person in Russia. 🙂 I wonder if I will ever recieve one from Russia?
As far as the postcards that I have sent, I ordered a package of eight postcards from Zazzle dot com, all of them having a picture of a bridge across town that goes over the river that runs on that side of town. I scanned and cropped that post card and have used it as a cover photo on some writing sites.
Have you ever heard of Postcrossing dot com , or have you ever been part of a program or website where you were assigned someone to send a postcard to , or gift or pen pal letter or something like that? I find them fun, myself. It’s nice to get something in the mail that’s not just a bill or a store ad, and especially nice/interesting to get something that was sent from another country. 🙂
