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 screen name 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.

Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps completed) 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 postcards back. So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul. I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile and will ban anyone that I feel like. Thanks and happy swapping!

Please don't send more than 3 cards per round. Before sending out the cards to the next person, do check if the cards belongs to someone who is still participating. If they are not, please contact me about it.

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled unless instructed otherwise. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT SENDING YOUR PARTNER'S CARD BACK TO THEM AS PART OF THE SWAP ROUND YOU'RE ON.

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.

Additionally: If you stop swapping for more than three rounds, your name will be placed on the "Send Back To" list and your card will be sent back to you if it's still in rotation.

And if you decide to stop the swap, please contact me so you can send your received cards to me and I can keep them in the rotation.

How do we know if someone is still participating if their username is not on the postcard? Do you have a list of recent participant names with their usernames that you can send to us to check?

My partner just received her cards from round 45 (she lives in China). I still have not received anything from round 46.

lostinavalon 09/19/2015 #

I am no longer participating so anyone with my cards can go ahead and send them home. (Sarah Coller)

palmettogirl727 09/19/2015 #

Still hoping mine resurfaces. If so, please return home. Thanks, Julie Turner

thisismeAXiD 09/19/2015 #

Ok, sending on Shirley K. and Jane M. Still lots of room on both.

Sending home Barbara F. from California :-)

mdkrouwel 09/22/2015 #

@onlyincambodia you can check in the previous round who participated.

mcovey 09/23/2015 #

I have Marie Williams card to send forward.

Bluegirl 09/27/2015 #

HAS ANYONE SEEN ANY OF MY CARDS? Bluegirl's? I have two going for now almost a year and they have not been sent back to me. I'm still participating, but I'd like to know if they are still going around. THANKS

mdkrouwel 09/28/2015 #

@Bluegirl at least one of your cards is still around, I just got a message from someone who has your card!

bookworm66 09/28/2015 #

I was wondering where my card was and think I only have one card travelling.

spinjenny 09/29/2015 #

Sometimes someone skips a round because they haven't received from the previous round, were going on vacation or just missed the deadline to join. Please check with them before sending back.

Also, if they haven't put their username on the card, that method doesn't work.

sending on @newrule R35 card. @lostinavaalon your R36 is one it's way home. the 3rd card did a walk of shame home to a flaker:(

flowerchild 09/30/2015 #

Sorry wanted to add I was thinking of checking more for people who haven't been on swap-bot for months or who are suspended. If the user name isn't on the card there should be 2 options...ask here or return the card for not following directions.

carol 10/ 1/2015 #

Glad I checked on this today! I was wondering what had happened to this swap. I have Susan Oler's card and will send it along this swap.

Thanks for taking over!

Anyone seen mine? Meredith B from Wisconsin. I'm mostly looking for my sea turtle card. Sigh.

CindyST 10/ 3/2015 #

Emily Post aka eepypost has not been on swapbot since mid August. Maybe whoever has her postcard/s can just send them home as Im not sure if she will be coming back to swapbot.

I did not recived my postcards from her for no #45 swap so not sure what will happen to those. I think she never sent them.

LisaLisa3 10/ 6/2015 #

Has anyone seen my postcard? Lisa Morris LisaLisa3, it has been out a while.

inthewild 10/ 7/2015 #

AGoofyGirl 10/10/2015 #

I just sent one of your postcards to my swap partner ... unfortunately not the sea turtle. Sorry! @thisismeAXiD

AGoofyGirl 10/10/2015 #

I believe I just sent one of your postcards to my swap partner. It's one of Van Gohh's paintings. @Bluegirl
