Postcard History Readers!
You're the greatest.

Readership statistics for our first month are in.

We had a total of 2,303 visitors who accessed an average of 10 pages per visit. During those 30 days we published eight articles on topics as varied as bird charmers, Disneyland, bottle caps and pink erasers, and hands-on healing.

Your support has encouraged us to make some improvements we thought wouldn’t come for several months.

  • An improved homepage design
  • Introduction of an entirely new section,

    The new homepage design will appear on July 29.

In A Few Words” will launch on August 11.

The publisher, editor, webmaster and
writers thank you, our readers.
