My 3000th sent postcard was received on 12 October 2011 (http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/US-1331619) ! After nearly a year holding the spot as top sender for the USA, I am ready to hand off the crown. It is time for someone else to claim the top spot. I will take a few months away from sending while I wait for my received count to catch up with my sent, and then I will resume, but I will not have more than a few cards at a time traveling. I love Postcrossing, and I've been a member since the beginning, so no way I would disappear from the site, but it is daunting having more than $65 in postage traveling on any given day.
**No envelopes, please. Send your postcard written and postmarked. And please...no religious cards, including religious holidays of any sort.**
If you don't have any of the themes described below, no worries! I will enjoy whatever you send.
If you like matching images to interests, I enjoy postcards of government buildings, maps, anything related to food, anything related to books or reading, UNESCO World Heritage sites, camels, windmills/turbines, water towers, clock towers, birds and birdhouses/feeders, anything related to bees or honey, anything postal or letter writing related, fountain pens, and ICE CREAM :)
And I love getting postcards relating to drink...ads, breweries, vineyards, cafes with people enjoying beverages, anything related to drinking of any sort.
I often wonder why people note their expired cards on their profiles, complete with IDs and the recipients' nicknames. Is it to shame someone into registering a card they haven't received? To me, detailing this sort of information is a bit like bullying. Cards expire for lots of reasons. Just let it go and send another card :-)
