I've been going through all my received postcards, and I noticed that I don't have a lot of map cards. If you have a map card, I'd love to receive one. I'm particularly interested in US state maps. Thanks!
Please put the date on your card. When I look through my received cards, it's good to be able to tell when I got them.
I spend a lot of time Postcrossing, for several reasons. First, I have always loved to get mail! I eagerly wait for the postman to arrive each day – the mailbox is often full of surprises! Secondly, I love to send cards even more than I do receiving them. I look at the recipient’s profile and try to pick the right card – sometimes it’s tough! Third, I really enjoy the great people I’ve met, both through official exchanges, and on the Forum. I’ve been Postcrossing since 2006, and I still enjoy asking for a new address and reading a new profile.
When I started Postcrossing I was busy working and caring for my late husband, who was ill for a long time. Sending cards was a pleasure. Now, I am a retiree and a widow. My life is full, but this hobby is still one of my favorites. Fitness has always been very important to me, but I’ve had to change my activities as I became older. For over twenty years, running was my passion. Now I go hiking with a group almost every day, year-round. I still run a little and try to weight train and do yoga when I can. Like many people I’ve met on Postcrossing, I love to read a variety of things.
Postcards? I used to say, “Send something that you yourself would enjoy receiving”. I still think that’s good advice, but I’m sure you’d like more direction than that. I always do. I hate to list a lot of preferences, because someone could send me something that I never would have imagined I’d like.
So, it you want to know what I like, look at my favorites. I love fantasy and science fiction; animals (except cats: I don't care for cat postcards); art cards; strange, bizarre, and unusual cards. But I will treasure whatever you want to send!
Please don't think you have to look through my received cards to avoid duplicates - I don't care! Send what you want to send, and don't waste your valuable time. The back of the card is as important than the front.
The cards in my favorites are ones I have not received.
