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 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 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.

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!

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. This is only fair...why should a few of us do all the work and you just get to sit back and wait?!

And too: If you ever receive more than 3 postcards in any round, please contact me, so I can get a few back from you. Just trying to keep postage down for everyone!

user6937 05/ 4/2014 #

I wish mine had come back. I would have loved to have seen where it had travelled. I was in the very first one. Great idea, @AnnieMaxine - you probably didn't expect it to grow this big :)

siouxx05 05/ 5/2014 #

I would love to see my first card come home too.. I think I started in R#2.. but there has never been mention of it..

inthewild 05/ 5/2014 #

Bluegirl - delighted one of my cards is out there - thank you for the update! Also started in R1 and no cards come home yet, hopefully this one will eventually make it back to base.

I have @onewaysiying postcard to forward in this round.

ladydy5 05/ 8/2014 #

How do these postcards get held back since R9, I have one to send from R18?? I have Jane Onkaya and Cindy Scott Turner cards that I will send out next. Have no idea where mine Diane Yates is.

spinjenny 05/ 8/2014 #

I have just received Tania Neirinckx's card (no username) started in R22, so I'll be passing that on in this round.

Johanna51 05/ 8/2014 #

In this round I will be passing the postcard of Meghan Weger, @nightowl21 My name is the 4th on this postcard, so it has to travel some more before going back to Meghan.

twobluecrows 05/ 8/2014 #

My card was just started in R(, but has 16 people on it! I found my other swapping card from R24, I'll be sending that out instead of a new one--vacations can mess with your mind!

twobluecrows 05/ 8/2014 #

R( is supposed to be R9

twobluecrows 05/ 8/2014 #

The card 'm passing on is Meredith Bushy's.

Eponita 05/ 9/2014 #

I have @Elisabeth 's card!

bookworm66 05/10/2014 #

I have Siobham Henn's card from Ruabon, Wales

ladydy5 05/10/2014 #

What happens to these cards we never get back ?

user6937 05/10/2014 #

Probably sitting under something on somebody's desk. Or, under the desk of some post office! Just guessing. Maybe someday somebody will put it in the mail, and send it home.

thisismeAXiD 05/11/2014 #

Cool, I have 2 out and about and I'll be sending on 3 because I'm an idiot and sent out the wrong cards a couple of swaps ago and forgot to send out one of three in a different round...yikes. Anyway here we go:

Elisabeth 05/12/2014 #

Sorry, I missed this round as we had health problems in our family. I will join the next round again!

NatashaMay 05/12/2014 #

I also received @MeganSR postcard from @AnnieMaxine so there will be two traveling from me this round.

preslarb 05/12/2014 #

AgnesP 05/15/2014 #

Thank you so much AnnieMaxine!

lorettadog 05/15/2014 #

Are we supposed to put the round # on the card?

spinjenny 05/15/2014 #

@lorettadog ~ a lot of us do, but it isn't essential. If you don't, then make sure you mention it in a swap note so your receiving partner knows where to look to rate you.

AnnieMaxine 05/15/2014 #

You are right @spinjenny :)

lorettadog 05/15/2014 #

Thank you! :o)

One more question - is it customary to add something for our partner?

dlchick 05/15/2014 #

I am sending one that belongs to @sacha .

AnnieMaxine 05/16/2014 #

@loretta - it is not necessary. Though, I will, on occasion, put an extra postcard in the envie for my partner for them to keep. Not required, but it does happen.

inthewild 05/17/2014 #

Sending on Donna Owen's card. It's half filled at this time.

EmilyT 05/18/2014 #

Sending @bootses

EmilyT 05/18/2014 #

Hm, she was last in this r20, last on swapbot back in Feb...I better check the list

EmilyT 05/18/2014 #

Alright, that card will be sent back home. This round I will pass on @trekaroo 's pc that just got started.

ladydy5 05/21/2014 #

Can other than USA swappers try to send early than the actual send date as it takes soooo long to reach us in order to have it ready for next one.?

pne 05/23/2014 #

@ladydy5 you can send whenever you want before the "send by" date.

If you wanted to, you could put the traveling postcard into an envelope and then, as soon as partners are assigned and you get the address, write the address on the envelope and post the card and mark sent.

The "send by" date is just the last day -- you're welcome to send anytime before that.

julebear 05/23/2014 #

I received one of my cards back from R16!! So cool where it traveled:) Thanks everyone!!

Cubsfanjennie 05/27/2014 #

Mandy Jansen....I'll be sending a card home to you!!!! It's pretty full. Don't think there is too much room for more. Going in an envie today!!!!!

Melon1789 05/29/2014 #

Just received @crimsonrivulets card from round 17 ... I'll be sending it home after my entry as it's full :)

NatashaMay 03/23/2015 #

I'm sorry to see this swap end. Thanks @AnnieMaxine for keeping it going for so long. Hope I get to see my postcards return to me. I have lost track of them a while ago. Nataša May, Slovenia
