    Hello, I'm Martin and I'm new to stamp collecting. I like to collect dogs, cats, cows, Disney, pieces of history I find interesting, marine, and sometimes counties. Any tips and threads I should have a look at?

    Hello Martin, welcome to the Exchange. If your like topicals, I would suggest checking the Stamp Chat forum. It has a good variety of threads. If you don't see your interests, start a new thread or two, someone else will add to it, I sure.

    Hi Martin,
    Welcome to the forum. As a collector it is sometimes difficult to connect with others in the hobby that share similar interests. I joined the American Philatelic Society back in the 90's. As a member it helped me to get more out of the hobby, meet new people and enjoy a fantastic monthly magazine. There is also an organization closer to your interests called the American Topical Association. I have heard other people say it was a worthwhile club to join. Perhaps you might consider becoming a member of one or both of these organization. We have other topical collectors here and as Don has suggested starting a chat or finding existing threads that interest you would be a good place to start.
    I am a U.S., Germany and PRC collector.
