Send me a postcard!

So, I've got a bit of a crazy idea. Not necessarily original, I'll tell you that.

A bit of background (if you know me, you know I like backgrounds with most of my posts!) - I've got four blogs. I've got this one on Blogger, another one on Posterous, one on Wordpress, and the final one on Tumblr.

There's a bit of distinction in my mind as to which host is for what. Posterous is for my #AwesomeHandles, Wordpress for the more serious me and Tumblr for a series of my favorite shots.

This one, ideally, I would like to maintain for the craftster in me. And boy is there a huge craftster in me! =)

Now, given that I've recently moved to the UK and will be setting up the house, I've been going insane trying to figure out what I can create on my own. My Pinterest page will tell you what I've been thinking! =)

During this process, however, I came across an idea. A 'what if', as it were. Again, I know this one's been done before but there's no harm in taking this further and seeing where it goes, eh?

What exactly am I on about? Well, I thought it'd be interesting get a collection of postcards from the lot of you!

I sent out a tweet and had four people ask for my address within 20 minutes. Now that's bloody encouraging!

So this is what I ask of you: wherever you are, whichever part of the world, whether you're at home or on holiday or travelling for work, just take a moment, pick up a postcard (hey, pick up as many as you want!) and mail them to me! =)

If you are interested in sending me a postcard, drop in an email to me at "swatirandev at gmail dot com". Put "I want to send you a postcard" in the subject line and tell me a bit about yourself in the body of the email - heck, even leave the body blank! =) Once I get this email from you, I'll send you my postal address and you can send me the postcard!

A bit complicated, I know, but I thought this was a bit safer than randomly advertising my home address here on the net!

I'm going to keep a collection and constantly update this blog with the postcards that come in.

If you've chanced upon this blog post and have no idea of who I am, you can check out my profile at to know more. And I would especially like to get a postcard from you!

I'm a bit skeptical about the success of this tiny project, but hey, I'll be happy even if I get two postcards! =)

*rubs hands in glee* I can't wait to get all your lovely postcards! =)
