Savannahjan here, taking over the Shared Journal Experiment swaps from the lovely @JenL . For questions regarding the preceding swaps, please contact her, as I will not have access to partner information for any swap previous to this.

This is the 25th swap in the series of shared journal swaps. Here's what happens:

IF YOU TOOK PLACE IN THE FIRST THROUGH TWENTY-FOURTH ROUNDS: you have received a journal with a bio, a journal entry, and a journal prompt. Your task now is to answer that journal prompt, write a bio about yourself, and a journal entry, and then end with a journal prompt for the next person to answer. And then send your journal off to your partner.

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND: Please feel free to join even if you didn't take part from the start.

  1. Obtain a journal/notebook/comp book with at least 80 pages.

  2. On the inside front cover write what the journal is for and who you are - THIS INCLUDES YOUR SCREENNAME!

  3. On the back page (or inside back cover) write your name and address and where to send the journal home when it is full.

  4. Write a bio about yourself (about a page or so)

  5. Then write one journal entry about your day, yourself, your thoughts, life, the world, whatever comes to mind (All of the above?) that you want to write about.

  6. On the next page you will then write one journal prompt for your partner to answer.

That's it; send it off to your partner!


*Required swaps: rated for at least three Type 3 swaps

*Very filled-out profile

*Newbies: No newbies at this time. Please feel free to join us once you meet the swap requirements. Believe me, I know what it's like. I joined Swapbot solely for journal swaps, and was rejected numerous times due to newbie status. Enjoy building up your "street cred", and check back for a later swap! :)

I will be going through everyone's ratings, etc, to check over and prevent any issues or flakers on this swap. ----- *ANY suspicious swappers will be removed. I have the final word. I'll be fair, but I'll be strict.

-----If you do not meet the new rating requirement, but have participated in previous swaps, please contact me. I will not track you down.

*I will ban people if they have recently flaked on any of these swaps. There's been several flakers and I will be compiling a list. I will also be keeping a close eye on recently received 3s.

You will have two weeks to send out your journal. Feel free to p.m. me if there are any questions! Let's fill up those journals that are out there!!

Those swappers who post whose journal they currently have will find themselves in a drawing to receive a postcard from me. It's nice to know our journals are out there, so I'm hoping this will help motivate people to post whose journal they have.

savannahjan 02/13/2013 #

Just completed the profile/ratings check through @LittleMessyMissy

Looking good so far. If you see something I might want to keep an eye on, just let me know. This is mostly a note for me, so I don't recheck profiles.

STUFFellaneous 02/13/2013 #

I have the journal of Schin Loong.

haightashbury2 02/15/2013 #

wah is there any way you can lower the rating requirement?!

lattejust4me 02/15/2013 #

I have the brand new journal of @thisisryanross

angiejustus77 02/17/2013 #

i have a stupid ? i dont have any notebooks can i handmake a notebook with construction paper and paper? just wondering before i sign up for the swap :-(

savannahjan 02/17/2013 #

@haightashbury2 I'm sorry, but I won't be changing the rating. It's a high rating because this is a time-intensive swap that requires a long commitment.

@angiejustus77 I'm going to say no to a construction paper journal. Simply because this journal is about to make a very long journey, and be handled by a lot of people. It needs to last.

There are people in this swap who have been in since the very first swap. So, they sent a journal out 24 swaps ago, and have yet to get theirs back. That was over a year ago. I don't feel a construction paper journal would survive that long.

I am already in this swap, but the deadline for sign up is in a couple of days and I still haven't gotten my partner's journal... looks like I will be one of the ones who has two floating around. :/ I haven't seen my first one come up in the swap comments in a while... maybe it's better for me to make a second one that might actually stay in the swap now.

savannahjan 02/19/2013 #

Tomorrow is the big day! At this point, all is well, and I feel like we have a good group!

I'll also be sending out an email tomorrow as a reminder. Just to cover all our bases.

I know there has been a long time between these two swaps, but I wanted to make sure everyone had received their journals. Sadly, 2 of us have yet to receive for 24. Boo!

But tomorrow, I click the button. Remember, if you have any concerns, just let me know!

maciemcgowan 02/19/2013 #

I have @browniemommie2005 journal!

sdowner 02/20/2013 #

I have bansley's (Beatrice Ansley) journal. Does anyone have mine out there -- (Sheri Downer - sdowner)

thisphoenixrises 02/21/2013 #

I haven't received the journal from 24 either. :/ Guess that means I'll be sending out one I make. The first round I joined, my journal got sent to a flaker, so hopefully this one has a better outcome!

ElizabethObviously 02/22/2013 #

I have choklitasprin's journal

Just wondering if anyone has seen mine?? It seems like my journals tend to disappear quite often when it comes to round robins. sad sigh

bansley 02/22/2013 #

Unfortunately I missed the sign up deadline but I do have Jennie Pae's @pyropae journal. I will hold on to it until #26!

savannahjan 02/24/2013 #

And the winner if the postcard for posting whose journal they had is @ElizabethObviously !!!! I will send it out tomorrow. Only 12 of the 29 swappers posted the journal they have. Hopefully more people will join in the next swap so we can track all of our journals. Enjoy writing in your journals and sending them to your partners!

tadpole102511 02/25/2013 #

I just got my journal for this swap... I got Skippydancer's journal. :)

lattejust4me 03/ 6/2013 #

Mine is out!
