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.
