My virtual friend Bruce Kilgour created a colorful video on virtual stamp collecting and I thought you might like to see what it’s all about.

“Virtual stamp collecting has become a favourite pastime on social media platforms such as FaceBook, Flickr and Twitter/Twitpic. This is a short introduction with all you need to know to get started as well as directions to the main virtual stamp websites. Start your virtual stamp album online today. Its the most fun you can have with your computer on! ”

It truly can be fun!

Mind you, would virtual stamp collecting exhibits be accepted inside Stamp Collecting Societies’s Exhibitions?

Will all the cutting edge technology available nowadays, i.e. projectors, slide shows, laptop computers and notebooks, it’s technically surely possible.

What do you think?

Do comment below as it would be great to hear your thoughts on this subject.

    Well thank you.

    I am reminded of the phrase: “You’ve read the book, now see the movie!”
    I think it is equally appropriate to say: You’ve seen the movie, now read the book!” (album) – You’ll find it (the growing virtual theme stamp catalogue) at:

    In days gone by we would purchase a stamp album containing pictures of the stamps we were to collect and then mount the actual stamps in pre-defined blocks. With virtual philately you can do likewise. First create your virtual stamp album. “You’ve got the pictures, now find the stamps!” Happy Stamping!
