Thanks for all the positive comments about this series of swaps! I'm so glad people are enjoying them so much!

I am an ardent listmaker. One of my Sunday rituals is to spend just a few minutes thinking about the week ahead of me and what I would like to get done. Some goals are large, some are small and trivial.

For example:

*return shirts that don't fit

*drop off clothes at Goodwill

*call mom back

*finish painting the deck

*go to the gym 3 times

You get the idea. I find it helpful to think about what I want to accomplish over the course of the week and setting it down on paper just reinforces that and helps me to focus. It would also be really cool if, when you left your rating for your partner, you asked them about one of their goals and whether they achieved it or not. This way we can all help give each other an extra nudge and hopefully all reach our goals =)

Send your partner a postcard with your goals for the upcoming week on the back. You must include a minimum of 5 goals. 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 to 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. It will always be international and newbie friendly. Signups will always end on Thursday, partners assigned on Friday, and mail deadline will be on Monday.

I hope you'll assign partners soon. It's already the 10th in Sydney...

Sorry. I am not always able to access Swap-bot from work. Assigned partners as soon as I got home.

Thanks for assigning! Just for future reference though, I was OK with a 4-day gap between sign-up and send out, but in reality you've left me with just over a day to fulfil this swap. :( We are a calendar day ahead of you so in effect I've lost a precious day if I stick to the letter of swap-bot law.
