How many cards did you send in your first year of Postcrossing?

I just finished my first year of Postcrossing and alllllmost met my goal of 100 cards sent (98!). I’m curious as to whether this is a high number, low number, or about average. It seems like it must be determined in part by a person’s location (I assume that folks who live in Europe are going to be able to send faster because there are so many post crossers in European countries and have less of a distance to travel than people in say, Australia). Anyway, just curious if people remember the number of cards they sent during their first year.

I haven’t been in postcrossing for a full year. I’ve sent a lot already though. (On forum and official stuff)

When I had my first anniversary in postcrossing, I had both sent and received exactly 200 cards. I recall it well because it felt such a mailstone and an amazing co-incidence.

157 sent on my first year with this account. No idea how it was back in 2008 when I joined for the first time. Surprisingly high number actually, I wasn’t really hurrying up with taking addresses and have some small breaks too, but I guess maybe it was my second year actually I slowed down more.

I started back in April 2017 and sent 193 cards in my first year while I received 179 cards. I guess that the difference comes from the fact that I am a frequent user of Travel mode.

I only sent 42, as I couldn’t afford any more. The following 1,5 year, I’ve only sent 16, but I’m posting my first since July tomorrow.

I sent 129 cards between September 2013 (when I joined) and September 2014. I feel sorry that those drop-down-menus at the bottom of one’s profile which showed how many cards you had sent/received in a certain year had to go after a main site update. To me it was a quicker and a more convenient way to check my sent and received stats than these tabs that were left. :woman_shrugging:

I started 5 months ago and have sent 87 postcards so far.
I’m hoping to send at least 200 in my first year.

I sent 206 postcards in my first year which was between June 2016 and June 2017. Obviously, the post was faster then and during my first year, I was constantly maxing out my allowed slots so I could get more.
