Happy blog-day to me

One year old today!



Postmarked Herne Bay, dated 25 August 1934.
32 ETW Dennis & Sons, Ltd, London & Scarborough.

It was precisely a year ago today that I thought of setting up this blog. A perfect way to waste my time!

I am really quite surprised at the numbers of people who are interested in my cards. I appreciate that not everyone finds my fascination with odd facts. I've been trying to include a wider area of the world in my choices each week (they are no longer truly random) but I seem to have a real shortage of cards from from some areas, surprisingly especially Australia, New Zealand.

But, as the card says, "This is lots better than being at school", or any other things I should be doing.

  6. Happy Blogiversary. Yes, I guess sometimes it is better to ride a donkey than go to school.

    I blew by me two-year blogiversary a couple of weeks ago. And I seem to make postcard posts more and more in my blog.
