Hello all! Welcome to the Journal Swap!

Here's how this swap works. Get some kind of journal like a composition book or other journal (nothing too small please) that you can fill out over a month. You can do whatever you want in it just make sure you fill it with stories, journal entries, collages, art, recipes, whatever you want. Your goal should be to fill a page or a couple of pages every day. Do not join this swap unless you can commit to at least doing an entry every couple of days, preferably every day but we all know life happens.

IMPORTANT: Each entry should be something of substance. A few stickers on a page doesn't count. Please put some thought and work into this so that your partner receives something that they will enjoy.

If something does happen and you are unable to finish or have a chunk of time missing, be prepared to send what you have and message me. I will "angel" some content to your swap partner if needed or extend the swap to give you a day or two to fill your journal. It is extremely time consuming to angel so if I am angelling for you please allow for some extra time.

This swap will start on April 1st and end on April 30th. So you should fill up the journal throughout April and mail it by May 8.

Since this is a long term swap, I am not opening it to anyone with 3 or 1 rating within the last 6 months. (If you would like to be considered please message me with details on a low rating.) Also, no newbies. You must have participated in at least one other type 3 swap.

Keep in mind that you want a nice, well thought out journal and full journal in this swap so don't send anything less than that out. When you receive your journal, rate it on how well it is filled out, not necessarily if what is in it is completely tailored to your tastes. However, when putting your journal together it would be considerate to at least make it somewhat enjoyable for your partner.

Any questions, message me!

Tracking on my package reports that it has been delivered, but my partner is now listed as partially suspended. :( Really wish I could just get rated.

@USAFwife Sometimes that's how Swapbot goes. It is imperfect. I'm sorry you didn't get a rating.
