I’ve started blogging about stamp collecting for a variety of reasons. First off, I love the hobby, and I feel many people’s lives would be more rewarding if they collected stamps. Secondly, I fear it’s a dying hobby that hasn’t attracted or maintained new collectors in a long time. I’d like to do my bit to promote the hobby. Thirdly, I’m just trying to push myself as a writer. Philately is a subject I find fascinating, but is deadly dull to any non-philatelist. If I can successfully write something that’s compelling to non-stamp collectors, I’ll grow as a writer! I’m not convinced I can, but I’ll give it a try!
