Description:

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!

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND:

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN THE PREVIOUS ROUND(S):

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.

Does anyone need a partially filled card? I'm joining to send again, but people keep sending me two at a time, and I have 3 now! Why is this happening?

mdkrouwel 02/18/2016 #

I have several cards here too, received from members that stopped joining. If you didn't receive a card for a round, please feel free to contact me and I will send you one of these cards.

One of my own cards returned home. My cows were glad to be back. Thank you all for signing it. It left me on 6/25/14 (R28).

Has anyone seen my cards? I have 3 in circulation, and have never seen any mention of them. The first one was started in Round 19!

EmilyT 03/ 2/2016 #

I'll be sending on a fun pc from @freyja3120

EmilyT 03/ 2/2016 #

Except I see now she hasn't been on since July and has 5 1's...so i'll send it back to her, actually. It is close to full, 1 or 2 could fit under me but 8 of us have signed it from 3 different countries and 6 different states so home it is going!

inthewild 03/ 3/2016 #

I'm sending on Kaylee Sartwen and Fernando's from Spain in the next round.

twobluecrows 03/ 3/2016 #

Things have changed and I'm sending out the card I received from R 51 this time around. I find now that I need a few things to keep my mind busier than before.

ElaCaiu 03/ 4/2016 #

Sending on a card belonging to @latentsmile It has room for one more person.

texasangel 03/ 4/2016 #

mdkrouwel 03/ 6/2016 #

Sorry, slipped my mind to assign, now they are. :-)

Fernandox 03/ 7/2016 #

Nice to see mine is still around :)

texasangel 03/10/2016 #

Texasangel sent

texasangel 03/10/2016 #

This was my first round I sent mine off. I got a pc from someone else today do I hold on to it and send it off in the next round I'm confused

EmilyT 03/13/2016 #

@texasangel you add your name and info on the left then hold onto it and join the next round and send it to that partner. Unless the left hand side is full, then you'd add your info, postage, and mail it back to the original owner

EmilyT 03/13/2016 #

Sending home the card belonging to @apelser tomorrow, as it is full Received this round.

mdkrouwel 03/14/2016 #
