A couple of weeks ago I clicked a link on the sidebar of The Missive Maven's blog that took me to Postcrossing, a postcard exchange site. When you set up an account you can elect to send up to five postcards. For each card you get a name, address, and an ID number to write somewhere on the card. You can also link to the person's profile to read about their interests.

Once the recipient gets your card, they enter the postcard's ID number into the site and can also upload a picture of the card. Then your name is given to the next person who wants to send a card. This also frees you up to request another address and send another card.

My wife and I both signed up for accounts. It seems like a fun way to connect with other people and it adds a little bit of excitement and anticipation to checking the mail.

  1. Hey, I just read this post. Thanks for linking to me, I appreciate that, but what I really want to say is how glad I am that you found out about Postcrossing - and through little old me! It is a heck of a lot of fun. I hope you get lots of wonderful cards.
