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. Thanks and happy swapping!

Please don't send more than 3 cards per round.

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 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.

If you have a postcard for S Martin in Oregon, please send it home to me! I'm no longer participating, so it doesn't make sense that my card(s) should still be circulating.

NatashaMay 05/17/2015 #

I'm sending Pcs from @latentsmile and Theresa Mather. Has anyone seen my PCs? Nataša May from Slovenia.

Johanna51 05/18/2015 #

The card I received in R42 is the one I forwarded in R41, so I've already signed it. AnnieMaxine asked us to re-sign card in that situation as that shows another part of the card's journey. Do you still want us to do that?

mchesser12 05/29/2015 #

Sending one for @rogueartist and one for Theresa Mather this round.

EmilyT 05/29/2015 #

I'll be sending on the card belonging to @apelser this round - I think only room for one more after me! {wasn't able to sign up for r42 as planned but I should be able to join again this round!}
