Under The Spotlight: me!

25 11 2009

I really love reading the Under The Spotlight blogisodes featured on the official Postcrossing blog. They are fun to read and some teeny-tiny narcissistic part of me would quite like to be the focus of one. But, in competition with 140,000-odd other users – probably much more highly prolific ones at that – my chances aren’t good. So – whilst hoping that no legally-barricaded copyright is being infringed – I thought I would just interview myself. For fun. Enjoy.

How did you come across Postcrossing? What got you hooked?

Well, Paulo, that’s easy: Twitter! Some fairly insane woman I was “following” [I trust you understand this technical parlance] registered a Postcrossing postcard which made an update to her Twitter account. Intrigued, I clicked the link and the Postcrossing magic enchanted me instantly. I heart all things post, writing and culture. In the words of my family, I haven’t stopped harping on about it since!

Do you have any other interesting hobbies?

Violin, short-story writing, YouTube… Not really.

Show us your mailbox, your mailman/mailwoman, your postoffice or the place where you post or keep your postcards!
Pretty, isn’t it? I happen to live in one of those villages like in Midsomer Murders.
Show and tell us about your favorite received postcard to date, and what makes it special.
It came from China and is a very striking image. The back is just as beautiful with amazing stamps and writing.
