Pimping Postcrossing
I do PostCrossing. It's fun to see the postcards from around the world show up in my mailbox. However, the vast vast majority of them are from Finland, which seems to have a commanding lead in memberships on the site.

So I'm pimping for more people elsewhere to sign up and give it a spin.

The system itself costs nothing. Postcards are cheap and plentiful (you can even use blank index cards, if you want), and the postage for an international postcard from the US is a mere 75 cents. That's two first class stamps and a penny stamp, or you can just get the stamps here.

Current Location: AlohaHaus, Capitol Hill, Seattle WA

Yep this is fun, I have two ids, Kaliaphe and Amathyse as one wasn't enough. I'm putting all the postcards up in my hallway. I do get a lot from Finland, but I get a nice variety from other places too.

Whee... thank you for the link. i have some pen pals, but finding time to write long letters of late has been really difficult.

And my first PostCrossing card should be sent to... Finland. Go figure :)

i find it funny, considering your housemate's opinions of pen-to-paper writing that you are pimping this. :) And, peversely delighted, as well. :P

ok... perversely. Can't type... can't spell. Such is life today.

His recent post where he mentions seeing an international postcard in the kitchen, the postcard was one of my incoming postcrossings.
