Oh, happy day! 🎉 Unbelievable as it sounds, Postcrossing turns 17 today!
Thank you for coming along on this journey with us, lovingly “spamming” the world with brilliant postcards and friendly words, making sure everyone has something to look forward to when they open their mailboxes. That feeling of finding something there never gets old, does it?
We’re especially thankful for the kindness being shared beyond borders, for all the funny images and fun facts that make us laugh, for all the thought and care that is put onto these little pieces of mail… We believe this community truly makes the world a better place, postcard by postcard.
By the way, did you know that haikus have 17 syllables (arranged on a 5–7–5 pattern)? Seems like a good occasion to try one out, so here it goes:
Postcards in the mail
Seventeen years of magic
Friends around the world
Ahah… at least we tried! 😅
Please do join us in celebrating this special day, and grab a piece of cake while you write some postcards (or haikus)! We’ll be doing the same from our little office here in Portugal, thinking of you all over the world. 🥰
PS – We’re using this opportunity to tweak the blog, increase the font size and make things more readable overall. Let us know what you think!
