Dear Snail Mail fans,
I’ve been rather ritual-y about the end of this year–cleaning out and reorganizing my shell, looking back at the pages of my wall calendar, doing little things for the less fortunate. In this spirit, I took a peek at Snail’s Postcard Post’s stats from 2013. At the end of the blog’s second year, I am once again was awestruck by how many countries you all are from, especially with the blog being in English. Similarly, as an American, I was heartened to find viewers from places my country hasn’t done well by, namely Afghanistan and Iraq. I’m sad to find that Snail’s Postcard Post doesn’t seem to be accessible in China, but I’m thrilled to have received my first viewer from sub-Saharan Africa (hailing from South Africa). Not only did the marks of your visits give this little snail the travel bug, but I’m filled with hope to see the interest people have in each other’s lands and cultures, the heart of what postcards are about.
Here’s the list of all the places snail mail fans checked in from in this year, with accompanying postcards, of course!
Korphe Village, Karakoram mountains
United Arab Emirates
Thanks so much for your interest everyone. The most popular post this year was Black History Month. The most viewed in one day was Love to Boston in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing. Here’s to peace in 2014!
