As a number, one thousand seems rather insignificant. Most schools I have worked at in Thailand have had many times that number of students. A collection of just a thousand of anything seems fairly tiny. Even in terms of currency, it seems rather poor but that depends on which currency you are dealing with. The highest denomination banknote here in Thailand is one thousand baht. … Continue reading Post #1000: One Thousand (!)
I wanted to wish you, my readers, a very Happy New Year on this first day of 2018. I hope the year ahead brings everyone great happiness. Instead of researching and putting together another lengthy ASAD article today, I spent much of today simply relaxing and getting caught up on various non-philatelic pursuits. As I don’t return to work until January 3, tomorrow may have … Continue reading Happy New Year 2018!
We’ve reached the end of my philatelic alphabet with yesterday’s post on Zimbabwe. I don’t (yet) have any stamps from Zululand but will put together an article once I obtain one. Does this indicate the end of A Stamp A Day? After all, my initial goal was to cover a stamp from each different entity I had in my collection in a more or less … Continue reading The Future of A Stamp A Day
This post is the 500th I’ve created for A Stamp A Day since starting the blog on July 1, 2016! The majority of the posts have been quite lengthy, making this a significant part of each day. I research and compile the articles each day in addition to my full-time job as a school administrator/teacher. I also try to find time to read and to … Continue reading ASAD’s 500th Post!
I’m sorry but I just can’t seem to get motivated to put together a few thousand words’ article for A Stamp A Day this rainy Friday afternoon. I just want to relax this evening. ASAD will return tomorrow to celebrate yet another birthday — a singer rather than an ocean liner — followed on Sunday with a profile of a former British crown colony which is currently … Continue reading Another Break from Blogging
Today marks the first anniversary of this endeavor of mine, an attempt to take a single stamp each and every day and provide a detailed account of the issuing entity’s political and postal history as well as describing whatever is portrayed upon the chosen stamp. In the past 365 days, I have published 368 entries to this blog — the majority of stamps selected, issuers researched, … Continue reading A Year of “A Stamp A Day”
A bit of a departure from my planned schedule as I’ve realized that I have now featured 100 different stamps since starting the A Stamp A Day blog back on July 1st, 2016. I have yet to miss a single day, despite there being more than a few when the Internet seemed to conspire against me (it tends to slow WAY down whenever it rains … Continue reading 100th Post!
I thought I would take a moment and reflect on the past sixty days of A Stamp A Day. I’m a bit surprised that I haven’t missed a day yet, although some days have been difficult either to put together an entry or get it posted on the blog. My internet service at home is unreliable — often extremely slow and doesn’t work at all when … Continue reading 60 Stamps In 60 Days
