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?
