I very recently joined this vibrant community and sent my first 5 postcards.
I used to be a penpal via the IYS (Turku, Finland) during my childhood and teen years.
Needless to say: I’ve been exploring both the Postcrossing website and forum lately, reading the guidelines, FAQs and several posts.
Nevertheless, I’d be interested in hearing from more seasoned Postcrossers their own top 5 DOs & DON’Ts for new fellow members, on the basis of their personal experience (additional practical insights, main advices and tips).
Thank you very much in advance!
