This is the second time that this blog, Postcard Enthusiast, was nominated and became a finalist under the Best Hobby and Recreation Blog category at the Mindanao Blog Awards and I am very thankful for it.
Now, I am making this post to explain why this blog deserves your vote:
First and foremost, this blog is owned by a pure, proud and passionate Mindanaoan from these springs patriotism not only for my own birth place but for entire country as well. The reason why I love to send postcards depicting the Philippine places and cultural heritage is because I want to show the world what a wonderful country we have. I believe that by sending postcards about our country and culture promotes tourism and love for the country.
Secondly, due to the advent of technology, snail mail is a dying industry. At this day and age, sending messages around the world can be done in seconds. Thus, sending postcards is another way of reminding us of our past and the history of long distance communication. Aside from that, sending postcard is a great exercise to remind us how to write and express our feelings through the written (manually and not electronically) words.
Thirdly, since I also receive postcards from the other countries, I guess to see the beauty of the world around us. In every postcard I receive is an opportunity to appreciate God’s wonders, different cultures and diverse perspective in each other’s world.
And lastly, postcrossing, in general, is a great hobby for the soul. Sending and receiving postcards can bring a smile on one’s face. The mixed emotion it brings is quite satisfying in some way. In each postcard you send and receive, you will be able to appreciate the uniqueness of the places and people.
For those who are voting for the Best Hobby and Recreation Blog at the Mindanao Blog Awards 2013, I hope you find in your heart to consider this blog your vote.
