My name is Sarah! – What’s yours?
I am quirky twenty-somethin’ girl, hailin’ from a small town in northern Germany, trying to find her place in this world.
I’m an avid reader and you will rarely meet me without a book. Besides reading, I also enjoy writing a lot. I haven’t published anything or created something that would be worth mentioning but someday I will – the keyword being someday here. Being a small-town-girl I love to be outside, especially when I can spend time with the horse I lease at a local riding-school. Now add a chronic case of wanderlust and a huge dosis of curiosity to the mix, and you pretty much have a rough draft of who I am.
“Why not blog?”
My love for writing, other countries and cultures eventually led me to join Postcrossing. There I am known as the Mailmonster; just click on my name and you can get to my profile. I think it is one of the coolest projects ever. Broadening your horizon has never been easier :). And my participation in it has finally led me to start this blog.
My systematical approach to blogging: How I blog
When I seriously began thinking about starting this blog I knew I didn’t want a cluster of formal, impersonal and sterile reports and reviews.
I wanted to create something personal, something like a diary, but also preserve the openness and accessibility of a modern blog.
The solution: POSTCARDS! I love to write and receive them. I think most people do. Just like a good blog post they convey the most important information in a few sentences. Combined with an image – we all know the proverb: “A picture is worth a thousand words” – a postcard is able to catch your attention – literally – in the blink of an eye!
Exactly what I wanted my blog posts to be like: Short, flashy and individual – yes, I am aiming quite high. Doing it that way also allows me to stay as true to my initial reason for blogging as possible: Sharing postcard-sized chunks of my life with you in connection to my mail art and Postcrossing adventures.
Life is rarely systematical…
… but I want my blog about it to be. To get to the point, in general I’ll try to stick to these three categories:
Of course I want to share with you my postcrossing-cards and spread the passion for handwritten messages sent by good ol’ snail mail.
MAIL ART / ART / PHOTOGRAPHY
I also want to share my creativity with you, drawings, paintings, collages but especially my Mail Art. All orther things concerning art will go here as well, like pretty photographs I’ve taken with my camera: A Canon EOS 20D, that has been given to me by my American host-dad Dave. *Thank you so much again, I am still thrilled* The big camera also has a “little sister”, a Canon PowerShot SX200 IS that I often use too.
…else I think needs to be shared with the world 😛
So, now it’s your turn: Go browse through my site. Have fun. Comment. Tell me who YOU are. Do you blog? Do you “postcross”?
