ATC idea for 2009

So, I've been playing with ideas for 2009 in terms of swaps, etc, and although I'll probably organise at least one round of the ALQS, I thought I might offer something a little different and a little smaller in terms of committments, as well. Here's what I have in mind - a birthday ATC swap. Here's how it would work. If you were interested in playing, you would sign up by sending me your birthday (year not necessary!) and your address. Then each month in 2009, you'd be committed to sending an ATC (any ATC, not a birthday theme necessarily) to the people who have a birthday in that month. And in your month, you'd get one from each player. I'd probably limit it to 25-30 people max, to keep postage down (or divide into groups, if there's a lot of interest). What do you all think - any interest in that sort of swap? It does mean committing to an entire year, but it's a small committment and I would plan to email a reminder each month so you wouldn't forget it was time to send them out...

I haven't ever done any ATCs but I might be interested -- I'll have to do a little research on them. Is there a website you'd recommend to get a better idea of what these are all about?

Sounds good to me. The small size should make it doable.
