A while ago, I stumbled across a WordPress blog run by someone (a woman, I think) from Barbados, who was offering to send free postcards from the Caribbean if you filled out a form on her blog. I did so, thinking I probably wouldn’t receive anything.
Lo and behold, in March, I received a lovely postcard with the image of a palm tree on it, postmarked Barbados. The message:
Sending love and warmth from Barbados to Wisconsin! :)”
Beneath the message was an unintelligible scribble. I asked myself who I knew in Barbados, and it was only after I came up empty that I remembered that blogger. I was going to track her down and thank her, but something distracted me and I forgot all about it.
Fast forward to today. I open my mailbox to find another postcard, this time depicting several islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The postmark is unreadable, but the stamps come from Barbados. The message reads as follows:
Was in Grenada recently and thought you might want to add another postcard to our collection :)”
And again, an unintelligible scribble. The very same one.
I decided I wanted to thank this person and maybe send him/her a postcard from Wisconsin in return, so I spent a few hours today combing through all my followers and blogs I follow, in hopes of finding him/her…and I honestly could not locate this person. I also checked my search history. Nothing. I even Googled “bajan bloggers,” “wordpress barbados,” and “postcards from barbados.” No dice. As of now, I don’t even have a name, but I would like to find you and thank you. But I don’t know who you are or how to do that.
An interesting mystery.
So, Bajan blogger, if you’re reading this, thank you so much for the lovely, lovely postcards. They really brighten my day, especially when I haven’t gotten any mail for a few days.
If you’re reading this and have any idea who this lovely Bajan blogger might be, let me know in a comment.
Finally, if you’re reading this and wish to send me a postcard or swap postcards, let me know in a comment and I will respond.
Just make sure to sign legibly so I can thank you properly.
