No More Postcards
This is an update post to say that I won’t be posting any more postcards on this blog.
Apparently some people are uncomfortable with me posting the backs of the cards, in particular, even though I’ve blacked out any identifying information. I suspect people are also unhappy with my commentary because I’m not the sort of person who gushes about stuff and I tend to be blunt and honest to a fault. Of course, this is my blog and theoretically and technically I should be able to post whatever I want. But people are people and they’re free to feel unhappy about what I’m doing even if all I’m doing are posting pictures of rainbows and unicorns.
I’m also a rather non-confrontational person so in an effort to forestall any further pitchforks aimed my way, I won’t be posting any more about postcards except when I talk about postcard swapping in general. The current postcard posts will remain up, although I am in the process of removing the offending images. (I can’t remove them all right at this minute because I’m at work, but if by next Monday, you find that I accidentally missed some, please let me know.)
Of course, I’m unhappy that other people are unhappy with me. I feel like I can’t really win. I was thinking that sending postcards would be my way of making other random people in the world happy outside of all the other crap going around. But apparently not.
If anyone has any suggestions for other hobbies that I might take up where there would be the minimum number of people getting angry at me, let me know in the comments below.
How sad that “some people” took it upon themselves to fix what wasn’t broken. Unless it was their personal card that you dissed, I don’t see that you owe them anything.
This makes me sad. I enjoyed the postcard posts a lot.
