Pay if Forward/Postcard exchange

US Map

After having a few people email me with interest of getting in on this fun event, I decided to repost this, there is still time to get in on the fun!

After some thought, and some wonderful insight from Natalie at Mouse Grows Mouse Learns I decided it might be best if instead of a carnival we do a Pay it Forward Postcard exchange. This will be a great way to share a little Geography lesson and share some Christmas Cheer to our friends here on the Internet. The Postcards will be ones that have Geography type pictures and information about where you live. Let’s make this more then just a Christmas exchange, but a Geography lesson as well.

As for Selena and I we are opening this up to send out as many postcards to those who would like to send us one.

So for the rules, Sign up here to receive a postcard from Selena and I, I only ask that you send us one in return.

To get the Pay it Forward going figure out how many people you would like to share postcards with, I think 3 to 5 are not too much to ask. The main rule is to keep the Pay it Forward going. If you sign up to receive a postcard from Selena and I, then you must do a pay it forward on your site to exchange postcards with at least three other people, you may do more, that is up to you.

Ok, I have two from my previous post, so you two do not need to comment again unless you want to. Anyone and everyone who leaves me a comment  will be in my postcard exchange. You then must Pay it Forward by posting about this event, and agree to send postcards to at least the first 3 or like us to whoever comments on your post. They then must agree to do the same thing.

I hope this makes sense, it is just like the Pay it Forward we did with the little packages, just this will be a postcard exchange. I think in order for it to really be an exchange though we should be willing to actually exchange postcards, in other words, if I send one to you I think out of respect you should send one to me, then post for the Pay it Forward.

If you have any questions just email me through the email in my profile.

Start leaving your comments so we can share information and start exchanging postcards! Just make sure  you either leave your email address in your comment or email it to me, if you have your settings at your blog set to noreply.

Thank you and have FUN! Let’s see how many postcards our little ones can receive and how much they can learn about the United States!

I would appreciate a link back to my blog, the more States I can get postcards from will make Selena and my Geography lesson a better experience. Thank you!

  3. Hi there, just found out about this exchange through a different blog and wanted to let you know we would love to participate. We live in Pennsylvania. Looking forward to being in touch!

  4. Hi I just tried to email you, but when I click on email my computer takes me to my frontier account which I never use and have no idea how to access. My other two accounts are the google one I created so I could create a blog and my yahoo account, which is my normal email. If you could leave a comment at my blog, www.totsandme.blogspot.com perhaps we could connect that way?

  5. Wow very great working and I read your article and your article is very interesting related for every time of life, so i am impressed with you and your article. I agreed your postcard and I like it so very much. There is no question about your blog and I really impressed with your information!
