I’ve been long pondering a membership in the American Philatelic Society. I appreciate the good work the APS does, but I don’t think it’s for me. There were a couple of things that bother me about their membership process.
In any case, there are other organizations I want to be a part of that are less than 35,000 members (including one I plan to start), and today I joined one… the Letter Writers Alliance. I have enjoyed the LWA blog for a while now and love the products they have available on their website. Also, LWA appeals to me because it’s not just about stamps. My hobby of collecting stamps has blossomed into this blog as my interest in postal history and letter writing expands.
So, I’ve placed the LWA Badge on this site. I encourage you to join LWA if your interests are fed by it.
