A Novice's Guide to Philately

The two basic rules that every stamp collector should adhere to are to enjoy collecting stamps and to take care of them.

Good advice from the Hit The Mark blog which is mainly about sports.

Some other good tips found in the August 5 post...

- Any stamp collecting for beginners class will tell you to start as a worldwide stamp collector until you decide what you like best and then you can specialize if you desire.

- For beginners, it is best to check out as many stamps as you can and gather all information achievable. Doing these would allow you to discover sides of stamp collecting you would never have imagined existed.

- What is important for you to keep in mind is that when starting out in stamp collecting, begin with just what you have in sight. You do not necessarily have to do too quickly. As you go on, you will stumble upon the stamps you truly would like. Be satisfied with what you have and take good care of them for the time being.
