I'm a late newcomer to this group, but I'm really looking forward to putting this into practice come January 1st. Can't wait!
My address is:
264 Holland Rd.
Lake Fletcher, Nova Scotia
B2T 1A1 Canada
457 Craven Road
Canada M4L 2Z5
Well, My approach may not be complete. But, what I am doing is copying addresses into a Word document that is formated for 5160 address labels. Then, when the sheet is full, I print it out, and it is my 'mailing list'.
Not sure that I get everyone on the page, but that's how I collect what I do have.
Mim -- you're not alone! It's a little wacky, the address thing...a bit like "who's on first? who's on second?". It's been really helpful to have everyone posting their addresses here at the IUOMA, since I've found that the personal blog links on the MA365 blog don't often have contact addys. Some folks are already listed in my personal "mail art black book", but there are many more on the MA365 sidebar who I've not heard of or corresponded with...
I've set up a couple guidelines for myself in regards to the project: #1: I'll only be writing to MA365 members throughout the year. #2: my list of addresses will "close" on January 1st, 2011. That way, I won't be adding people to my list in June, or something like that -- too crazy to keep everything straight! Once I "mail to" the list and reach the last person, I'll start all over again. (actually, I've already made it through once!)
That's the way I'm approaching the project. Not only is MA365 an experiment in dedication, it is a "project of encouragement": we keep each other going throughout the year with words of admiration, inspiration, and of course: lots of mail art! What better way to do that than by sending things to each on a regular basis? :-)
PS: like Rani, I'm also replying to any "strays" who send mail my way...
Maybe a posting on the MA365 blog, with the tag "addresses", so that we could encourage folks to put addresses over there as well? Just a thought. What do you think Andy?
