    Yes, it's sign on time for round 30! A nice round number, just like me. In fact Sept. 1st is my birthday, I won't say how old I am but x2 would be a good guess. So everyone have some cake for me and sign up for what should be a great round!

    Here is the schedule for this round:


    September: sign-on
    Oct & Nov: print and mail
    December: breather

    Special Announcement:
    Since 30 is a milestone in many peoples lives it should be a milestone for us in the Postcard Exchange. It would great to have as many people as possible, so if you think it's a good idea join in today. Here is the special offer: For those in the past, who may have dropped out because you didn't complete a round it's time to come back. This is a special "FORGIVENESS" round, this may not happen again for a long time. Sure, we'd like to have you complete that last round and it's never too late! (If you still have your old address list I can even help you update some of the addresses - people move.) If you've lost the list and can't even remember what went wrong that's OK, just promise that you will try really, really hard this round. So don't miss this chance the next "FORGIVENESS" round might be a long way away.

    OK, now the standard text, but please read on:


    As in the previous rounds, please signup by sending a PM to me containing your full name, address (including the country - this is an international exchange) and the number of cards you are able to send or say maximum for the maximum possible number of cards. You can also choose "ALL" you will still only receive the MAX number of cards but you will receive the complete list so you can share your work with everyone if you choose.


    As in the previous rounds, if you have been in the exchange for the last couple rounds and if your address is the same, you can sign on just with giving the number of cards here in the thread. No PM needed in this case.


    Important! As in the previous rounds I will post lists of participants in this thread every once in a while. If you signed in (or if you think so) please come back to this thread and check if your name is on the list. If the name should be on the list but is not, then let me know. Once the address lists are sent out early in October I can not do any changes. And also check for the number of cards behind your name.


    There are a couple threads with an introduction and FAQs (check the links in my sig). Just send me a PM or ask here if you have any questions.


    Please read on:


    As in the previous rounds, not all participants have been able to send out the cards. For whatever reasons, if you have not fulfilled your last rounds commitment, send your cards before you sign in for this round. Just be fair. (and drop a note in the last round comments to let us know you are okay)

    And as in the previous rounds, I am looking forward to this round.


    Now for those new to the postcard exchange, here is how it all works out.


    First: It is fun!


    Second: When registration is over, I will prepare address lists which I will PM to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you join in for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.


    Third: Did I mention that it is fun? Where else can you receive cards from all over the world, different styles, different methods, different papers!

    I've been missing these with all the craziness in my life, but I think the 30th round is a good place to jump back in.
    The max, of course. Is my address still on some master list?

    Chocolate sponge cake with ice cream and blackberries OK?

    well, it's my first time, so sign me up for the MAX.
    Am I biting off more than I can chew? probably. It will still be fun though, right?
