Another postcard blog

The web doesn’t appear to be overrun with blogs about historic postcards – or at least ones that deal with the subject specifically. I’ve found on or two entries dealing with historic postcards, but that has been about it. Today I came across  Vintage Postcards: Postcard blog – this is a blog that is associated with an online shop selling historic postcards.

If you’ve come across any postcard blogs or websites let me know 🙂
