International Postcard Swap for Families – Blogs around the world!

| 7

Although the postcard swap has been quite some work it’s also been a delight – I’ve “met” so many interesting people, discovered lots of new blogs and had some lovely email conversations along the way. One of the aspects of it all I’ve most appreciated is “meeting” families so very different from mine – enabling me to challenge my own beliefs and even prejudices. Through this swap I’ve been able to talk with and read about families I would probably never find a way to spend time with even if we lived in the same neighbourhood because some of our values and beliefs are so different. This experience has reminded me that even though we are all so different we can still find common ground, we can still enjoy doing things together, and that has been a very valuable and uplifting experience for me.

Many people who are participating in the swap do not have blogs, but for those families that do I thought I’d list them all here (those that are participating in the international swap) to give you some fun browsing whilst you have a coffee or tea at some quiet point in your day (I hope!). Here’s wishing you happy exploring!

If I’ve missed out your blog please let me know and I’ll add it! If you’re taking part in the All-American swap, your blogs will feature here tomorrow!

Finally, I’ve been on the look out for a picture book which features blogging but have so far failed to find one – do any of you know of any picture books which mention email or blogging?

  1. Looking forward to checking out some new blogs! I will have to block off a few hours though – that is a long list! 🙂

    Thanks for posting them!

  2. It definitely is a long list, but I’m sure you’ll find something interesting 🙂

  3. I don’t know why I found it so thrilling to see my blog listed above, but I did. I am looking forward to checking out some new blogs too.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Tricia

  4. Hi Tricia,
    Hope you found some new blogs to enjoy!

  5. Hi Zoe,

    Just took a quick look at all the blogs you have listed, and found most of them to be by moms who home-school. Interesting concept. I haven’t seen much of it here in India. Also, strangely, my blog is the only one from India of all those listed.

    Check out this post on the swap:

  6. Thank you ever so much for organising, can you mail me your address, as I have something for you as a thankyou

  7. Thank you for putting on the exchange. I have updated my blog with my son’s postcards. He decided to stamp them. http://creatingnirvanatoday.blogspot.com/2010/05/little-bbq-worked-hard-on-his-post.html
