I collect postcards. I fell into the hobby a few years ago when an internet friend mentioned the website postcrossing.com. It allows you to send and receive postcards from other users around the world. I’ve since joined their forum, which allows you to set up private swaps, and participate in other postcard-trading activities. It’s been a little over three years since I started collecting and I should hit the 2,000 card mark by the end of the year. I used to post my cards on my tumblr account, as I received them. But I’ve gotten really bad at scanning them in a timely manner, so I’m usually scanning close to 50 cards in one go. But here are some of my favorites.
