****Please read the entire swap description, INCLUDING the "Notes" at the bottom****

Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address (including the country!) on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") and your screenname at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


Hang on to the postcard(s) that you receive in each round. We will have another round as soon as everyone has clicked "Sent" in the previous round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps - although if you have already been in the swap, you will be allowed in even if you don't have 50) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcard back! So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul, K? I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile and will ban anyone that I feel like. Thanks and happy swapping!

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled unless instructed otherwise.

Additional Note: I'd love for you to post some "success stories" for this swap. If you've had yours returned to you, post in the comments about it. Maybe that will encourage others to continue to participate!

ALSO: Do not destroy, bend, write on the front of, or ANYTHING else that destroys the integrity of the postcard. Treat the postcard how you would want yours treated. That's just etiquette, folks!

An email will be sent out that will provide you with the names and screennames of those that are no longer participating. Please look at the cards you receive and see if they belong to anyone on this list. If they do, SEND IT BACK TO THEM! There is a reason that theirs should not be in rotation! Thanks!

It's really exciting to see how my card is getting on. :-)

basykes 11/ 4/2013 #

I sent off Karen Barnett's PC, not because it was full, but because she is on the "to be sent to" list. I received it from amit19 in India, but he was not my partner, so I wasn't quite sure what to do with it! I was the 6th signer (and the only one from the US)

smadronia 11/ 4/2013 #

pne 11/ 5/2013 #

My second card belongs to @rhynah , I think!

danushaj 11/ 5/2013 #

Has anyone seen any of my cards? I feel that they have gone missing, especially my first one sent out on round 1 or 2 which was a lovely 3D postcard.

I sent out another card after I found out my card was stuck on its first journey (why steal a postcard and not rate me?).

I have another one doing the rounds for my son, hopefully that makes it back soon, he will be overjoyed to see it.

Annie has been doing such a great job as host with keeping everyone informed and sending out extra emails, such dedication!! Thank you for all your hard work!!

Bluegirl 11/13/2013 #

Sorry I meant to say that that was from round 15th and I sent it on round 16th, but I did not get a card for round 16th.
