*Please have the postcard postmarked and sent from within the country or county it is to be representing.
*If the postcard could be about the county or a city within the county or country it would be great. Make it as interesting as possible – if postcard doesn’t exist (which is possible for smaller counties or countries) – a postcard of the general region or even the area itself would be appreciated. (I also collect stadiums – especially baseball so if you have one in your area:)
*Please include at least your first name, since I scan the postcards for the blog. If you don’t want your name posted (especially your last name), please don’t right it down
*If you want me to add a link to the blog about your area, business, or a personal website let me know and add it to the postcard. I do try to add the links to the visitor’s bureaus that I’ve emailed.
*Most of all thanks for helping me with this venture. It’s always fun to see what people think is the most interesting spot or area where they live.
