Hello! I'm Jim from Cincinnati, Ohio, where I live with my wife and 2 rescue dogs. Our young adult daughter lives nearby. In addition to dogs, I love reading, photography, coffee, family history research, and playing board/card games. I LOVE learning, so I am learning several languages as well as better photography skills. Religion and World History are two favorite subjects.
All postcards are welcome! As Postcrosser hepman said "Postcrossing means fun to me, not stress." In case you have many options to choose from here are some of my favorite kinds:
- Your national or regional culture, such as food, clothes, landscapes, events/ceremonies, and architecture
- Chronik-karten (Duplicates are fine!)
- Self-made (drawn, colored, printed) postcards
- Fountain pens and ink (and other pens, too)
- Reading and books
- Holiday postcards, especially for Christmas and Easter
- Different styles of photography and unique photographs
- Dogs are the best creatures, in my opinion, so dog postcards are always welcome!
- Puppets and puppet theaters, especially from your region/country
- Have a postcard not on anyone's list of requests? Please send it and tell me about it.
- My Favorites are all cards I received. Duplicates are ok when you write a nice note on the back.
I do not prefer folded note cards, because this is a postcard swap. But if this is what you can send I understand that.
PLEASE write something on the back, and I am happy when it is more than "Happy Postcrossing" on your postcard! Consider...
- a book suggestion (fiction or non-fiction),
- what could I read to better understand life in your country,
- teaching me some words or a phrase in your language,
- for example. how do you answer the telephone?
- a writing prompt from the Postcrossing blog,
- sending a quote or poem and why you like it,
- answering a common question visitors to your area have,
- something about your daily life, such as your pets, where you like to eat, your favorite place to shop, etc., or
- telling what happened today (ordinary for you may be new for me),
- telling me why you chose to send me this card.
I look forward to your postcard!
