Postcrossing

So in a recent photojojo.com newsletter, they profiled a site called postcrossing.com. So I went over and checked it out. It's freakin amazing people! Ok, so you sign up. And for every postcard you send, you get one back! And not from the same person you sent to. Someone else sends you one. It's quite amazing actually, you can list a little about yourself, what languages you speak, and you can mention if you want postcards with a specific topic (which isn't guaranteed). But it's all done based on ID numbers. Each card is assigned an ID number, which you write on the card before sending it. And then when you receive a card, you register that you received it via the ID number on the card.

I've received 3 cards so far. One from Taiwan, one from Finland, and one from Michigan (you can choose whether you want cards from your own country or not.)

I absolutely LOVE snail mail, so this is just so awesome! And the postage stamps are pretty cool too.

So check it out if you want! And if you're into photography, go to photojojo.com and sign up for their newsletter. They are great! Short, to the point, and written so regular people can understand (and they're funny too).

Peace out peeps!
