What do you think of this photo? I really like it! A wonderful photo of Weimar in its summer colors. If you like this, you can view a few more here.
I took some pretty nice pictures and wanted to share this with you. Wouldn't this look lovely on a postcard?
I love getting postcards from all over the World. I got one yesterday from Payal my blogger friend in California. She was in Hawaii and sent me a great postcard.
I truly believe this is one thing that will not be replaced by the electronic media.
This got my ever so active mind churning and I had a fantastic idea! And here I am sharing the idea with you.
I know of many people who also love getting postcards and thought wouldn't it be great if we shared postcards among us blogger buddies.
So, I am now announcing the begin of the 1st (at least I believe it is) Blogger Postcards from the World (BPW in short) and this is how I thought it would work:
Anyone who is interested in taking part emails me their interest and their address by the announced deadline. Don't worry I will not post the address anywhere on the net! I'll announce a deadline of the date all names/addresses have to be in by.
Once I have all the names, I'll list them all on a table. Then I'll pull out a name from a bag, hat or a pot and add this name to the first name on my list. I will mail that person from my list and inform them of who that person (recipient) is and their address. Now this person (sender) has to:
- Buy a postcard or make one of their own photos
- Take a picture of this postcard and write a post on their blog that a postcard is being sent off - WITHOUT revealing the name of the recipient. Please link to this page so that anyone reading can get the idea what it is we're doing. Maybe they'd like to join.
- Send the postcard to the recipient I pulled out. Get it!
- Take a picture of the postcard
- Simply write up a post about it and link back to the sender's page and to this page
- Send me the link to her write up so that I can do a round-up of all senders and recipients.
Pam is the first name on my list and I pull out Ashwini's name from the bag. I will inform Pam of who she has been paired with. Pam has to then take a picture of the postcard she is sending, write up a post on her blog not telling where it is headed and then send thepostcard to Ashwini.
The neat thing about this is that Ashwini has no idea from who she will be receiving the postcard from.
Wait it goes on! Now Ashwini, once she receives her postcard, has to take a picture of it and post it on her blog. Then she sends me the link to the post and I will make a round-up of the list and the links.
This way we all can see who got what postcard and from whom and hopefully start a tidal wave of postcard blogging.
For myself I will be pulling a name of a recipient too, to send. As the host however, I leave it all to you to surprise me with your postcards ;-))
What do you all think? Want to take part in the BPW? Before I actually go ahead and announce the deadline - let me get the feedback from you all. Once I see that there is enough interest then I'll announce the deadline.
Folks, lets send postcards around the world!
Keep yourself updated and check out The List throughout the BPW.
