one, two… three!


like vicki says, time really flies when you’re having fun. it’s been three years since i received the first postcard ever sent through postcrossing… and here we are now, three years and over a million postcards later, still going strong :)

this has been postcrossing‘s best year so far, i think. the project went through a heavy recoding to move it to the symfony framework, and a re-design at the same time. the re-coding made it easy for p. to introduce new features, which have been coming out steadily.
the over 55k-users’ community happily exchanges postcards and joins meetups around the world. oh, and on average, 2 postcards are being received each minute, somewhere in the planet. :D

this year, there was even a marriage celebrated between two people who met through postcrossing! how cool is that?

here’s hoping for another 3 years of growth, smiles and busy mailboxes!

    Which reminds me… I can get back to happy postcrossing!
    It’s so good to have free time after so many months of hard work :)

    Happy birthday, Postcrossing, and congratulations to both of you!

    Happy Birthday to your baby! :-)

    PS: nice postcard ;-)

    PSS: I’ll be back… looking for a place where I can print my photos as postcards in small quantities. Places I have found so far require minimum orders os 100 or 200 postcards.

    Ena Ena! Parabens!

    I’ve canceled my postcrossing account after breaking my foot in 2005 :( Maybe I will start again. It was so nice!
