Russian post apparently just takes forever. My card didn't go lost or forgotten after all, it just took a whopping 28 days to arrive. Now it has and my first wave of returns has already come in full!

China, Finland, Germany, USA and Australia.

4 cards from my second wave out are already in the mail with one more waiting to be written.

I've also used the forum to participate in a few tags and have found a penpal in Russia ^^

All in all, a good day.

That makes me feel a little better! My ones that haven't arrived yet are going to Russia, Chile (those are the 20 days out now ones), China, Taiwan, and France.

Oh, oh! I think that this was kinda like what we used to do in middle school. I got so many post cards from all over the world, and it was a lot of fun. I'm gonna make a profile!

Edit: Here's mine.

Forgive me for being a noob, but is there a way for us to send a postcard to someone just by viewing their profile?

Users write on their profiles if they are interested in direct swaps or not. If they have toggled "yes", they're usually happy to arrange an exchange outside of the site system. Just send them a message through their profile telling them what you are interested in trading.

It helps if you have a few postcards registered both ways with the system, first, though. That way people know you're trustworthy.

I usually include a description of who I am, where I am and then anything about the card that I can share. If it's a picture of something in my city -- what it is, if it's an artists' work ~ whose, if it's something cultural about Japan -- what it is/means, translations of Japanese text on the card.

Some people use information on profiles to write about something they have in common. People write to me OFTEN that they also love sitting in cafes with books and/or coffee. It seems I have that in common with most everyone all over the world ^^

-----------------------------------------------------------

I've just gotten another card from Holland and have had my 6th outgoing card registered by a user in Estonia. My new swap partner is an 8 year-old boy in Russia who loves animals and legos. He needs the English in block letters. Dawwww.

Making a gallery of cards to swap.
And another of cards I've sent.

Yay, my ones to Chile (21 days) and France (10 days) got logged! Sent two more out, to Texas and to Hong Kong.

Ruby- I don't know what to say, either, so I just comment on what is on the front of the card. I had one I got from the UK where the lady said she was having a great day, and what she ate for lunch. I thought it was cute.

I got one in the mail, from Russia, today! The girl who wrote it was really nice and chatty- she said she is a waitress at Pizza Hut in St. Petersburg and studying IT.

First letter from my new Chinese penpal arrived!

God, she's adorable.

I think I'll keep her ^^

Highly recommend using the forum if you want specific cards, countries or to exchange items/letters. Postcrossing is a community of mail-addicts. But they don't just stop at postcards.
