Postcarding adventures with #WBEspace

Hola, Hola, ๐Ÿ‘‹
Recently, in my ✿ Indie Maker ✿ journey, I reached out to find a community. It was time to be surrounded with people of like mind, who were eager to talk about bootstrapping their way to success. Whatever success looks like for a person, it's valuable to have support during the adventure. Postcards call to me, so I joined a postcard club. Entrepreneurial endeavors call to me, so it was time to be around entrepreneurs, in all stages of achievement. These fellow entrepreneurs are part of a community called “Wannabe Entrepreneur” of which I am a proud member.
Wannabe Entrepreneur

Within the paid community are startup founders, indie hackers, or as you would call them “people” with all different kinds of projects with the same goals. We build projects to help the world be a better place, and hopefully make money to thrive while doing it. It's a wonderful group of people, who are actively checking in to support or give feedback when asked for it. Makers are so generous with their time and resources.

Within the community, I've met another postcard lover from the other side of the world. She has been so gracious to exchange postcards from her travels. I appreciate so very much this series of lively interchanges of poetry and pictures. Luise has been a dynamic part of the WannaBe Entrepreneur Space and Podcast.

Consider yourself encouraged to strike up conversations about postcards anywhere you enjoy visiting with people. Postcard lovers are everywhere. All the more reason to get to sending more. Enjoy!

Just a personal note to Luise, Thank you so much for the postcards and poem. I love all the views of the greatest places in the world. So glad you thought of me, sending a postcard from your trip to Spain. It's an incredible experience being postcard pen pals, as well as the community. Your episode on WannaBe Entrepreneur Podcast is my favorite when you take over the podcast with Wolfy, phenomenal.

๐Ÿ“ฎ Postcrossing encounters unlock happiness๐Ÿ“ฎ

    Trying to catch me breath on the changes the world throws our way. A good surprise postcard will help set things straight or put the universe back into motion.  J from TX helped me through a tough time. A nice hello and update on the 4 legged kids.  All is well in the postcard passing world.  Take some time and register on Postcrossing.๐Ÿ“ฎ No pressure, just friendly postcards to new friends all over the world, at snailmail speed.

Our journey is just beginning, many other postcrossing members have been sharing for a very long time. I encourage you to join a world ๐Ÿ—บ of postcard loves. 


Thank you J from TX.  I love TX too!  Lovely stamps, adorable sticker to make a person smile. Most favorite thing is a website to look for new postcards to share.  Going to go check out the site where J's card was made.  If I'm able to find some great cards and easily purchase them, I will list them on the resources page.  It's hopeful to build the resource page quickly with many postcard options.  Check back often to see the updates.  Also check back to see when J mails off another postcard. ๐Ÿ˜

Postcarding time Tio Shout out

Post Office, please take it easier on the beautiful pieces of Art ๐ŸŽจ Love ❣  

    This blog has been a gift from above. I cannot tell you how many times it's pages have snatched me from darker places. I'm not sure exactly how we got here, or who, what, where, when, why, to thank. Ever so be it, Thankful is what comes to mind when a postcard arrives.  They ALWAYS bring a smile to my face and pure joy while reading them. It's an incredible feeling. 

    The last few weeks have been very trialsome personally. No need to go back and analyse or recall.  Now, we are on the brighter side of it.  I've received several cards in my PO box throughout the last 2 months.  There are so many people to shout out, and thanks for sharing postcards with me.  I love all of you. Please be assured, I will scan and post every single one of them until my last breath.  

    The commitment I have to the postcard, postcrossing, postfun, postcard pen pal community is undeniable. Even my family has been so supportive and encouraging in regard to the progress of the collection. The blog is so inspiring. This week, we passed 20,000 visitors to  It's such an amazing experience. 

    With that milestone, We just want to tell you how much we appreciate your contribution to the collection and the experiences of exchanging/swapping/mailing/posting postcards. Thank you for sharing this grand hobby. Thank you for taking the time to send a postcard to someone and say hello. Thank you for waiting timelessly for a response. It is a great honour to know you and to share this great journey with you.  Bless you for your postcards, and again I thank you!
