Twitter For Gentlefolk : Postcard From Cleveland

Twitter For Gentlefolks (or Gentle Twitter) seems to have well and truly taken off and I keep seeing postcards sent between bloggers appearing on many of the blogs I regularly follow. It has reached a stage now where it has become too complex to maintain a list of links to all the TfG posts, but I will be maintaining my own weekly feature which focuses on the postcards that fall through my letterbox. This week it was a postcard from Cleveland Ohio, sent by my good friend Mouse (aka Kimy). My thanks to the Mouse, and to all those other people participating in this most enjoyable project.



I must confess that I had to get the big atlas out and look up exactly where Cleveland and "the north coast" were. Sadly my fleeting (and floating) visit to the States next month is limited to a handful of cities on the east coast, but that trip will be just a "taster" for a longer journey during which I intent to explore the States in full. And high on my list for that exploration will be Cleveland.

  3. Whilst you are on your travels on the East Coast, the Atlantic provinces (Canada) is lovely to look at too...

  7. I had the chance to have a visit with Kimy last year on my cross-country road trip--if you're coming for a longish exploration of the States, do see Cleveland & do spend time with Kimy! I'd love to have her show me around Cleveland.

  10. These "Gentle Twitter" posts are always fun to read about, but I had wondered when everyone else's participation would prove to be overwhelming to catalog.

    I'm also wondering if your "visit to the States next month" will bring you to, or near, Massachusetts?
