The "Stamp Collecting Blog"

Keijo Kortelainen is the “casual stamp collector” behind all the stories on the Stamp Collecting Blog.

The 30-something is "a family man, small business owner (in B2B consulting & training services) and above all, a stamp collector, from Sumiainen, Finland," according to his bio.

Keijo started the Stamp Collecting Blog in late January 2009. He says it's his “personal hobby project without any timelines or goals and writes new posts when (and if) he has the time, or a good story to share."

Recently he's been posting an interesting series of posts on the various ways to store your collection.

He writes, "Acquiring / getting new items is the fun part that every stamp collector loves. I try to place 'incoming' stamps ASAP to appropiate place in my collection, but sometimes my ASAP can mean months. Thus I have built a simple storage system for incoming material: everything is sorted to country specific envolopes or glassines stored in a shoebox."

The site is well-organized, easy to navigate and a good read. Check it out.

Shown above is part of Keijo's worldwide collection.
