UPDATE: Dec. 2019
Hello to all you fellow Postcrossers my name is James and I'm from Muskegon, Michigan. Muskegon is located on the west side of the state, along the shore of Lake Michigan. I'm married to my wife Sveta who is from Ukraine and we have a daughter named Luda who is 16.
I've been with Postcrossing now for over five years and it's time I updated my profile and share what I've learned over these past five years. I would first like to say I have met many nice people and have made friends from all over the world. Most people have been very friendly and nice but, there has been a trend I'm starting to see more of with people. Some are using Postcrossing to promote a political or social agenda and I'm strongly against this sort of thing. Postcrossing should be a neutral place free from these things.
I've also been seeing a trend towards people making demands about which types of cards they want. If you check Postcrossing Community Guidelines you will see that this sort of thing is not allowed. What should be most important is that the person sending you a card took their time and money to reach across borders and say Hello to you and share a little bit about themself.
I know it is hard to find postcards in some places and people should understand that. I try to keep a large variety of postcards on hand to match someone's interests. It brings me joy to know I can send a postcard that will bring some happiness to someone who receives it. I'm not always going to be able to send a card that matches a person's interests so please be understanding.
I like all the cards I receive. If you want to send a card that matches the ones I like the most then you can look at my favorites. This is not a demand just a hint for those who would like help in knowing what type of card to send.
If you want a direct swap with me send a message. Also please be honest if you direct swap.
My interests are many and I will share a few with you. I enjoy photography very much. I have a page for my photos www.facebook.com/jamessveta if you can, please visit to see my photography.
I also enjoy motorcycling and I own a 2011 Suzuki V-Strom. I haven't ridden it much this year because of a busy schedule and safety concerns with impaired drivers on drugs, alcohol, and cell phones.
I like to listen to audiobooks while I drive because I haven't had time to read. I like most types of music but usually listen to Rock and Classic Rock. I like a lot of different types of movies also but I usually watch war, sci-fi, and comic book movies.
I like going to garage sales and second-hand stores. I collect old portable radios, cassettes, records, and CDs. I'm looking forward to meeting you and receiving your cards.
I do not enjoy politics wheater they are from where you live or from here in America. Please be respectful and keep any negative opinions about America to yourself.
