PostCrossing

Recently, I have stumbled across the blog of Erika Jean (another GeoCacher) through a comment she left over at AtHomeDaddyGPS (actually, I stumbled across her blog TWICE - in two separate / unrelated instances) in addition to her comments for AtHomeDaddy, I stumbled across another comment she left at the Six Journals Project (more on the Six Journals Project later). 
 
Besides reading about her exploits into GeoCaching, I noticed something else on her blog that caught my interest.
 
 
What is PostCrossing?  (Taken from the "About PostCrossing" page)
"The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.

Why? Because, like the author, there are lots of people who like to receive real mail.
The element of surprise of receiving postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of) can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises - and who wouldn't like that?"

Initially, I was intrigued - despite my initial interest, I completely forgot about following up with it.  Then, I stumbled across a different blog talking about PostCrossing.  Again, I was intrigued, but not enough to check further.  Then, yesterday, while catching up on ErikaJean.com - I spotted another entry about PostCrossing.  This time, my interested was peaked enough to check into it. 

While checking it out, I decided to take the plunge and sign up.  I signed up, registered an account (free), verified that account, and requested my first address to mail a post card to... 

FINLAND!

Who knows!  This could turn out to be pretty fun little hobby!  (Do I smell yet ANOTHER blog in the future?

  1. I am not sure if it was Erika Jean's blog or not that got me interested in Postcrossing. There are a few blogs I read that mention postcrossing. I started in October and I love it! Have fun!
