I got my first postcrossing card today. And am I happy.
For those uninitiated, www.postcrossing.com is a wonderful site if you love sending and receiving letters the old-fashioned way. That is, through snail-mail.
I love writing letters. Actually, I used to. Even to friends I met regularly. There is quite a charm in receiving letters from a person who actually took the trouble to sit down, think and write something especially for you. Nothing beats the personal touch. In this age of one-click e-mail forwards, me think this website is promoting a good cause. And also, might be getting me back on track as far as letter writing is concerned 😉
I received my first postcard today from a student in Finland. Thanks Helena. I hope you’ll someday visit this blog. Yeah, the send:receive ratio is still a bit skewed with 7:1, but am not gonna give up so soon. Who knows, someday I’ll get in touch with a certain Ms. Mousomi Ghosh too.
As for AFJ, you’ll have to visit her blog to http://www.southwestsun.blogspot.com/
She is like a celebrity to us unkown bloggers. And quite a devoted fan following she has. I might not post anything for days, but i’ve to visit her blog regularly. That’s the magic of ‘south of the border, west of the sun.’
