Description:

Before we begin, let me just start by saying this is a LONG TERM COMMITMENT/MONEY SWAP & A HIGH QUALITY SWAP ((This means take your time enjoy it, even if its your journal make sure your partner would love to receive what you are sending)). If you can't make that commitment, this may not be the swap for you. If you don't want to be a part of this swap for 20 or more rounds (which could mean over $50 in postage by the time it is all over), this may not be the swap for you. If a year is too long to wait to finish a swap and get your journal back, this is not the swap for you. This swap is a COMMITMENT, and if you can't follow through for the LONG TERM, then perhaps you should pick another swap. I'm sorry to be blunt, but I also want to be honest, and up-front to protect the swappers who do join.

JOINING THIS SWAP DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL EVER SEE YOUR JOURNAL AGAIN. THIS IS A HIGH RISK SWAP, JOIN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

That being said, on to business If you have a journal you'd like to use from the original series of this swap, feel free to do so. This is the reboot of the series of shared journal swaps. Here's what happens:

** IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND.** 1. Obtain a journal/notebook/comp book with at least 80 pages. (Comp books MAY be too big for this swap as they take a lot of time to fill. Just a tip. You can still use them. But journals with slightly smaller proportions may work better.)

  1. On the inside front cover write who the journal belongs to - THIS INCLUDES YOUR SCREENNAME!

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

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

  4. 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. (more than a page, please!)

  5. 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! ((PLEASE DO NOT USE MEDIA MAIL TO MAIL YOUR JOURNAL, THANK YOU))

NOT YOUR FIRST ROUND: If this is not your first round, that means you have received a journal, and are ready to proceed. 1 Answer the prompt your partner provided. 1 page answer, at least. 2 Add your bio (at least a page) 3 Add your journal entry (MORE than a page!!!!!!!!) 4 Add a prompt for your partner to answer 5 Send it on its merry way! ((PLEASE DO NOT USE MEDIA MAIL TO MAIL YOUR JOURNAL, THANK YOU))

FOR THE FINE PRINT: *Required swaps: rated for at least 10 Type 3 swaps

*Rating 4.95

*Well filled-out profile

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.

You will have two weeks to send out your journal. Feel free to PM me if there are any questions. **I will also angel if needed, but please only sign up if you are willing to participate, nobody likes a flaker.

Just a note - apparently, these journals we are sending around are not eligible for media mail rate for shipping. The USPS.com site for media mail link is here (sorry, I don't know how to do clicky links, but you can copy and paste): http://about.usps.com/notices/not121/not121.htm Just wanted to pass on information. I didn't know all this, either.

I should not have signed up for this. I didn't get a journal from round 3. Now I will have to start a new one for me, and I look greedy, as I will now have 2 journals in circulation. I hope that doesn't get confusing.

My journal to Karen is out for delivery today, but it is in FLORIDA. I will contact Karen and see if she is even in the path of hurricane Irma.

MawBella 09/ 8/2017 #

I never received one from my partner and she hasn't been active since last month. I have sent her messages but no response. So what do I do? Do I make another one? Just wondering.

TC 09/12/2017 #

@MawBella , rate your partner a 1, and let the swap host know via PM that you never received the swap.
