international, open to newbies, as long as your profile is filled in.

The first time I was in this swap, in 2007, hosted by a dear friend, who is no longer in swap-bot. I've seen lots of variations, of it, along the way, but am returning to the simple.

You will have two partners, (that means you'll get two ratings!), you will send each one of them a postcard, with a stanza, or a few lines of a poem that you like, or that has touched your life in some way.

please credit the author, unless you've written it yourself.

do not put your postcard in an envelope, to mail, these are to be "well-travelled" postcards, which you will address to your partners, put a stamp on them, and send them on their way!

It is VERY important that you include the name of the swap, and your own swapping name someplace on the card, because many of us use nicknames here in swap-bot, but we want to be able to thank you, when we receive your swap!

Be sure to then click of the "SENT" link on this page, so you won't get marked lower, just because the postal service might be slow.

I hope you have FUN with this. Please use a picture postcard, sender's choice on that.

Any questions, or concerns, please just post here, or message me.

Can I make my postcard? I know it is sender's choice, but wanted to check. Thanks.

Absolutely! I'm sorry for the delay here...had a "new kitty" situation!

Thanks so much for your sweet persistence,

Hope you all have FUN with this, please check out my other swaps, most of all swaps that I host are newbie-friendly!

Let me get this right, there isn't a specific requirement for the picture on the card, you have to write a poem or such like on it?

gramsbuttonbox 08/17/2015 #

RachH -by "picture" it means that the FRONT of the card be a picture of so,etching....anything! (I just don't want swappers sending the plain white post cards.

On the BACK of the postcard, where the address and stamp go, there is space to the left, where you can write a message. Yes, please write a poem, or line from a song that means something to you.

Also, maybe in the margin, write the name of the swap, your swap ID, and yes, the date you are putting it in the mail.

I hope that helps.

Ooh no, I didn't mean I'd send a blank card. ;) x

RachH 08/22/2015 #

(A plain white one, I mean)

gramsbuttonbox 08/22/2015 #

And as for" what" picture, it's sender's choice. 😊

Rcinderella7 08/28/2015 #

gramsbuttonbox 08/29/2015 #

that's great to hear...I hope you all have a lot of fun with this swap...I've run it often, and I am so happy that you've joined my. Swap!

I have messaged a lot of newbies who have signed up for this swap. welcome to swapbot, I hope you have a lot of FUN, and make a lot of swapping friends.

I only have ONE "rule" for newbies, when it comes to my swaps. You MUST have a complete and well thought out profile, so your swapping partners can get to know you.

A good rule of thumb, is than when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down in order to tead it.

Happy swapping, Everyone!

What is the rating requirement to join?

gramsbuttonbox 08/31/2015 #

There isn't one...I do not start any project NOT trusting people...if someone flakes, THEN they have damaged my trust. And I will always angel my swaps, if necessary

gramsbuttonbox 08/31/2015 #

Partners will be assigned SOON! Get your postcards ready, be sure your own swap name, the name of this swap, and the date you mail it are also written, maybe around the margins.

Thank you very much for joining my swap, and helping to make it a TOP Swap!
