my REAL wall – 10 June 2011

I’m lagging hugely at the moment with my REAL wall posts and on mailart365. falling about 100 posts behind. It’s quite demoralising actually, but I’ve taken my eye off the ball there, and have been trying to focus on getting even MORE people sending postcards on Twitter, linkedin and my new project schoolswaps

The aim of schoolswaps is to try and bring my worklife, which is teaching together with my passion for postcards and link teachers together in the post.

It seems to be going pretty well so far, with our first show already scheduled and I’m arranging a big swap called (rather unimaginitively I admit) The Great Big School Swap where I’m going to connect up as many classes as I can for a big postcard swap with classes from other countries. So far I have over 50 classes involved from 17 countries! By my calculations, that should amount to over 1,500 postcards going in the post on June 25, 2011!

So, my apologies for not posting your awesome postcards up as frequently as I used to!

Todays gems come from a number of new sources, which is really refreshing. One new contributor, Jose Day, found my REAL wall on flickr. Nastya and Kate from Eastern Europe and Erika all found me via Postcrossing and I sent postcards back out to the them earlier this month.

Mailart today comes from Dewi, Nadine Mojica, Farstarr and The Snailmailer B. Thanks to all of you and I hope to get things back to you soon!
