I recently joined a postcard exchange and I really like it, so i thought some folks here might also benefit from or enjoy it.

Happy writing! :D

It would be nice to send real postcards but not online ones as it is not the same.

That is true.

I don't know many people irl who would send postcards, so I am sending them to strangers now :lol:

I think online cards are called "e-cards"? Not sure....

irl = in real life (basically not on the internet, out in the real world). In this case, someone I know in person, face to face.

irl…in real life

When I had a darkroom, I was a member of a group postcard exchanges of photos we crafted. There were around 60 people in the exchange and you received some fantastic photos from around the world. If was fun and when I finally land someplace, I’ll rejoin.
