I don't know of any swaps like this, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes....if you've hosted a similar swap or seen a similar swap, please let me know so I can credit the proper people.
I enjoy to journal. My problem, however, is that I often find myself unsure of what to write about, and I'm constantly unsure of where to find inspiration. The goal of this swap is to provide inspiration for your partner. You will have one partner for whom you will purchase a cheap notebook (don't spend more than $5). The notebook should 8.5"x11" and contain 100 sheets of paper.
Once you have your notebook, start by writing an opening message to your partner in the first few pages of the notebook. Tell your partner a little about your experience journaling, how long you've been doing it, what you like and dislike about it, and anything else you think they should know. The rest of the notebook should contain tips and advice for things your partner could discuss in their journal. You can be as creative as you want with this and get your message across however you want. You could include images, lists, quotes, questions, or other prompts for your partner to respond to. Basically, include anything you can think of to give your ideas about what to write about. The goal is to get your partner to think about journaling in ways they may not have thought of before. You can write one prompt at the top of a page and leave the rest of it blank (so your partner can respond in the notebook if they choose to), but every page should have at least one thing written on it.
Everybody is welcome to join this swap. However, if you know one of the participants to be a bad swapper, please alert me to the fact. I will angel of someone flakes.
