Postcrossing

I like mail - both sending and receiving - so participating in Postcrossing seemed like a win-win for my 101 in 1001 list. It has taken me a bit to getting around to doing it - but I think that is the point of the list in the first place. Many of the items aren't difficult, exactly, but many of them are just things I'd enjoy doing but not ever prioritize enough to get around to doing. I meant to do this last week when I was sending out Christmas cards but I ran out of interest in writing, particularly the small talk necessary to come up with a message for a complete stranger. However, I've now written out postcards to go off to three continents, to women from 9 to 50. If you click around the map below, you can see where my cards are headed.

Are they people you know? Or just random people who signed up for this?

It is SO much fun! And a very inexpensive hobby.

Random people who signed up. It was fun, though I anticipate receiving some postcards to be more fun. That doesn't happen until people receive at least one of your cards first, so I sent the five you are allowed at a time to increase my chances :)

Jenni - cool blog idea!
