thank you for all the positive responses to these swaps. I am so glad you are enjoying them.
I adore those little wrap up lists people make in their blogs in which they put a + in front of things that happened that week that were positive, and a - in front of the negative stuff that happened. For example,
(+) bought new red shoes
(+) mac and cheese and a movie with the boy on friday night
(-) massive library fines
(+) scored 2 hours of overtime at work
You get the idea. I think these lists are fun to read, and they also allow the writer to take emotional stock of their week. For those of us that either don't have the time to journal on a regular basis or simply forget, we can kind of get a little bit of that process back in our lives.
Send your partner a postcard with your (+/-) list on the back. You must include a minimum of 5 items, with at least one positive and one negative thing. The postcards are sender's choice (store bought, handmade, free card), but they must be mailed naked (aka not in an envelope.)
Make sure to label your card with the full swap name, the number of the swap, and your username. It is insanely frustrating to try and give out feedback without this information.
Any swapper with at least a 4.8 rating may join including newbies with a well filled out profile. I reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through based on previous ratings. I will angel if there are any flakers.
I am going to host this swap every week. They will always be international and newbie friendly. Signups will always end on Thursday, partners assigned on Friday, and mail deadline will be on Monday.
