Hi, I just started collecting in January and am specializing in Literary Stamps (stamps with classic books or authors\poets). My USA collection is up to date but I am now adding FDC\cachets to that collection and postal stationary. I hope to start working on Great Britain next.
I also have a growing general collection (Foreign and USA). I am a member of the Syracuse (NY) Stamp Club and plan on applying to the APS very soon.
So far philately has been a fascinating journey.
Oh, and I started a blog awhile back.
