Back last fall, we went to a co-op class through our homeschool group that was all about Postcrossing.
Postcrossing is an online project that lets you: "send a postcard and receive a postcard back from a random person in the world!". Which means each time I send a postcard to a postcrossing member, I will receive a postcard back from another postcrossing member. (You can read more about how it works here.)
When I went on Postcrossing the other day to register a postcard I'd received, I realized we'd hit a milestone... we've sent and received 50 postcards!
I do love facts and figures... so you can imagine the fun I had checking out our "stats"...
We joined postcrossing 266 days ago, so it took just about 9 months to hit the 50 postcard milestone... Since the more cards you send, the more you can have traveling at one time, we should hit our next big milestone of 100 cards in about half that time.
Since we began postcrossing the cards we've sent have traveled 232,569 miles (or 374, 284 km).
