One of the blogs I read (and unfortunately I can't remember which one) mentioned a couple of times about getting postcards from Postcrossing. I love getting snail mail, international mail is the cat's pajamas, and a postcard is a small enough commitment that I have no qualms about agreeing to send a few. I had to check it out.
Postcrossing is free. You register, give a bit of info about yourself (so the people who send to you will have some idea what to write), and request an address to send off a postcard. As soon as someone registers a postcard that you have sent you become the next in line to have your address given out.
At this point I have sent 13 and received 7 only one of which was from the US (thank heavens so many people speak English!). The majority have come from Asia.
My investment in this has been the cost of postcards and the $.98 international stamps. Bassman would probably say this is one of the cheapest hobbies I have begun!
