Unfortunately, I think this hobby of ours is on the way out. As the Washington Post and other outlets have reported, postal mail seems to have recently suffered a steep dropoff in volume. I didn't even get any mail last Thursday! I know the mailman stopped by as he picked up my outgoing mail, but he didn't even leave any junk mail for me. The culprits are suspected to be the recent postage hike, and the economy in general.
I'm done with my promise to post a daily snail sweep. One, if this is the direction snail mail is taking, I might start having even more trouble than I've had in the past finding snail mail sweepstakes. More and more sweepstakes have been permitting online-entry-only in the past several years, and I'm sure that trend will increase. And two, I think the pressure of trying to post daily contributed to my avoiding this site for the last several weeks. Working 60 hour weeks doesn't help either.
