****NEW UPDATES PLEASE READ BELOW****

(((((IF YOU RECEIVE YOUR OWN JOURNAL BACK: Please follow these steps: 1. Write about a day in your life, 2. Decorate a page anyway you wish (stickers, drawing, wash tape, scrapbook, add pictures), 3. Add your question)))))

MOVING ON AND FORWARD: SWAPPERS LETS BE ACCOUNTABLE, PLEASE COMMENT BELOW ON THE SWAPPERS JOURNAL YOU CURRENTLY HOLD IN ROUND #5 'TIL THE VERY END AND BE ENTERED TO WIN A GIFT CARD!!!!!

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.)

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

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

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

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!)

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.

Lets be accountable swappers!!!! Comment below on which swappers journal you have in your possession. Starting from Round #6 and forward each comment under each round will win you an entry into my big fishbowl, where you can win a giftcard!!!!

If you would like a spread sheet mailed to you, to see where your journal is please message me with your email and I will gladly email it to you.

In other news swapper @aligurl75 (who had @Denisedecker58 s journal) has been contacted to join us in Round #7, I think she might have forgotten to sign up. So I sent her a quick reminder.

Swappers @kraftykj (who has my journal) and @karen07 (who has @Taledo s journal) both messaged me and said they will be back in Round #7 they just couldnt make Round #6's deadline.

aligurl75 10/21/2017 #

Hiya,, yes I had round #6 in my watchlist and totally missed the signup, I do plan on continuing this swap. I signed up for round 7 now to make sure I didn’t miss it this time, Thank you for the heads up.

USAFwife 11/ 6/2017 #

Are you going to extend the send by date, since the sign up was pushed back? The PO will be closed Friday for veterans day

Leistessa 11/ 6/2017 #

@AmericanHeiress all righty will of course send as parcel, can wait to start this swap!

MawBella 11/ 7/2017 #

Actually the post offices should be closed on Saturday. This is a first time in all the years I been working for USPS that this has happened. Lol

USAFwife 11/ 7/2017 #

The sign in our PO says no mail will be delivered on Fri or Sat, and the counter will be closed Fri (& is isn't ever open on Sat). I mean, I suppose I could send it UPS, but that seems extreme.

MawBella 11/ 7/2017 #

@USAFwife I forgot that maybe some of the smaller offices may close. Forgot about that. We don’t have any that small in our area. Most all post offices around here are all 6 day even the ones that are only open a couple hours a day. 👍🏼

Karen07 11/ 8/2017 #

Due to traveling, it looks like I missed the round 7 sign up. : ( In any case, I have taledo's journal which I will get back into circulation with the next round and my own has come back to me as well. Now holding 2!

AmericanHeiress 11/ 8/2017 #

Fixed the send by date everyone and waiting to hear back from @Karen07 response and then I will switch partners at high noon today.
