On Reaching 500 Sent Today

Thursday, November 5, 2020 - 14:20 (UTC -5)

Greetings, All!

Postcard US-7050253 was registered by Member Irina_Panda today. It’s my 500th Sent! Since I joined Postcrossing on January 11, 2019, it has been just a few days shy of 22 months.

Maintaining the Maximum Allowed Traveling is key to Sending (and Receiving). I didn’t figure that out for the first couple of months. It took 7 months to crack 20 a month, then another 12 months to crack 30. Now, with 19 Max Allowed, things are moving right along.

Our world-wide Postcrossing Community has been mutual and supportive, making for a very positive experience that I have been happy to share with friends and family. Thanks also to Paulo, Ana, and all the Staff for keeping the project running well.

As Bashō wrote, “Every day is a journey and the journey itself is home”. Thanks to everyone who’s been part of my Postcrossing Journey.

Happy Postcrossing!



Congratulations on that sweet number! :slight_smile:

Congratulations Michael! I joined a few weeks after you, have also sent out the max and am only at 386 sent. I thought maybe you were European or something, but I see you are East Coast like me. My sent cards seemed to go the speed of a turtle early on during the pandemic. Did you switch to “several postcards traveling to the same country at the same time?” Not sure if that would make a difference or not. Not that it matters. I’ll get there eventually :slightly_smiling_face: It is such a fun hobby I think!

Hi, GrapeGirl:


No, I’ve never switched on that option. I get a lot of assignments to Germany naturally. I may consider switching off the “my own country” option when I have 40-50 Traveling continually, but until then, I’m happy to send and receive to and from the USA. It’s like having reasonably quick access to 50 more countries!

Happy Postcrossing,

That’s really cool. Congratulations! I was really excited when my sent/received reached 2000. I had the honor to send postcard US-7000000 to Russia - that was exciting.
