iuoma.org – Interested in Mail-Art?

welcome to the International Union of Mail-Artists. This Blog gives you information and links to all activities undertaken by Ruud Janssen, who started with Mail-Art in 1980 and is still active.

New Website

Since the old website from IUOMA.ORG was started in 1996, the maintaining of that website became too dificult. So I am now rebuilding the website with the new blog concept by WordPress.  The first files already are added. Soon you will find back here all the details, and hopefully find back the things you were looking for.

Ruud_Janssen_NLThe menu structure for the blog will be build slowly, so you will be able to see it grow. Also I plan to add all the mail-interviews here too, since the website where they were hosted vanished last year. Have a bit of patience. The new times are digital, but take a lot of time to.

I decided to place the blog over the old website. That is still there, but when you go to the main domain name, you go strait to the new place.

IUOMA BLOG

Since the time of websites is vanishing quickly, and the time of blogs integrated in social networks is there for years, I also started with a blog on the IUOMA domain name. We will see how that goes. This is just the first posting. Getting used to the settings of WordPress, and as it looks now it isn’t that complicated.

2015-05-27 17.17.25Because Mail-Art is visually orientated, I will include lots of visuals as usual. Here is a first sample of an envelope sent to Diane Keys in the USA. She already received it and posted it on facebook. The texts and images are everywhere these days, and a normal visitor of the Internet is swamped with all kind of details.

 

Can we still find our ways in this gigantic chaos? I just started just one more blog it that chaos. Not sure if someone will actually also read this.
