While writing my last postcrossing card, I remembered this. I had decided to write why I got addicted to Postcrossing, and I realized that it all started here, with my postcard-loving great-aunt. Oh, now I miss her, with her vintage cards, self-made cards, and her beautiful handwriting all over them.
When I came across an article about Postcrossing last year, it feeled like the perfect idea to fill my postcard-gap. The whole idea is: you send cards to addresses and profiles, generated by the site for you. Others get your address generated and send you a card, as soon as you have sent one. So you receive as many cards as you like.
One warning: when you begin it, it is very addictive!
