December 2022 Part 3️⃣

This will post a week or two after the wedding, but the card was beautiful & I had to share. If I get some decent photos before this posts, they will be included.

December 2022 Part 2️⃣

Interesting ๐Ÿ’ญ 

My outbound cards fell off in November while working extra hours on the day job. It seemed logical to me that the  ๐Ÿ“ญ mailboxes๐Ÿ“ฎ would also slow down. That has not been the case. Having a profile on Postcrossing and PostFun has kept me in the postcard exchanges at the end of the year.  It's been very exhilarating.  Then I also received a lovely card for the holidays from my most favorite Dearheart, who is on the West Coast far away.  She always remembers and sends holiday greetings. I don't know what I would do without her. 
There was also one more surprise this month with Logology. Since i'm actively building niche websites, I thought it would be prudent to hire a professional for logos on a new brand we are trying to create. There will be plenty to learn there on another date.  Logology send a lovely card, a postcard to thank me for the purchase, and a lovely envelope with their unique stamp.  It was so different in terms of marketing that I felt I just needed to share it.  I hope you like it.  

For the remainder of the year, it will be inevitable to be constantly busy with overtime at the day job. I will be struggling just to make it through physically. If I have a down week or two, please be patient. We welcome comments on the blog, and would love to hear from you. That could keep us connected until the next round of beautiful postcard posts. 

The blog has been pretty independent of my other projects, as it is my baby. These are my personal postcards being shared here.  Personal exchanges between friends, pen pals, and fellow postcrossers. I haven't yet started a postcard club, nor a newsletter specifically for My Picture Postcards, yet the opportunity has recently been laid at my feet, so to speak.  Think i'm going to build the newsletter on postcard .page. I was able to get a profile started, and the domain for MyPicturePostcards. newsletter page.  So, thinking out loud, or #LearningInPublic, I'm going to try to build a specific newsletter just for MPP. I would really love contributions for your favorite postcard shopping experiences.  I've been working on my postcard marketplace as well.  Until the first of the year, the time will be extremely limited as to how much progress will be achieved. Since I've spoken it out into the ether of the universe, now maybe we can get somewhere with these beautiful postcard projects.  

Until next time

Happy Holidays, Happy New Year

November Exchanges 2022


November was a little slower month for the PO Box, But it revealed some gems worth waiting for. These came from Reddit RAoC and Good Reads Postcard exchanges.  I did get emails confirming the receipt of two cards I sent out for Postcrossing too.  I'm always amazed by the frequency that others are able to get cards sent out and registered.  I guess I'm more on the deliberately slow pace. Probably more like postcards started out in the early 1900s.  
I did  manage to get a box of PCs scanned over the weekend. Amazed to find 880 in the file when I had finished scanning for the evening.  It's such a lovely feeling to watch and hear them zipping through the scanner, knowing that soon their lives will be shared online for generations to come.  
That feels good, to be able to preserve these beautiful pieces of history.  More will come, at that very deliberate slow pace, the saunter of enjoyment.  I love sharing these treasures, so i'm never gone for too long.
