It’s already the end of February and I have yet to post anything to this blog. I plan to remedy that situation very soon. Work, and other activities, have intruded upon my postcard-writing. To date, I’ve only sent nine cards this year so far — all through Postcrossing earlier this month. I’ve started receiving emails indicating that several of these postcards have reached their destinations already.
I do still have a backlog of postcards to write about. A number of these arrived between November and December as part of a Christmas postcard exchanged organized by a Facebook group. While it isn’t very seasonal, I believe I’ll start featuring these cards in the near future, perhaps illustrating several at a time rather than writing a lengthy article about each one.
As far as postcard goals for the New Year, I would like to add a few more countries to my map. Significant “missing” countries include Spain and Portugal as well as all of Central America. I have very few postcards from the continents of South America and Africa and would like to fill in some more of the states and provinces of the U.S. and Canada.
