Description:

this is an international swap**

this is an online only swap**

the idea is this,

i am really inspired by the website "day zero" 101 things to do in 1001 days project ( http://triplux.com/dayzero/ ) cut and paste the link ( its one thing on my list to finally learn how to post clickable links on s-b,lol) OR click the link above

BUT i have been known to procrastinate and sometimes reality gets in the way of my life!!!! and my swapping....

AND for me, i work best when i have a deadline so...enter this website!

everyone who signs up for this swap will create their own "list" and the swap will be this ......follow your partners progress thru e mail and snail mail, writing them letters and notes of encouragement.

lets say for example...your partner wants to learn french, you can send them a page from a french dictionary or a postcard with a line or two in french as a reminder of their goal!

*when it comes to ratings you will simply rate your partner a 5 if they have completed and posted their list on the site by the "send" deadline...then the rest is really up to you!

so i guess its sorta an on my honor and kindness thing....and also a 1001 day commitment, if you will:)

i have set a 1 month "send " date from the "signup" date so everyone should be able to get to writing in good time their 101 things list.

important note* you will need a blog ( there are many free bolgs out there) or website or a myspace type thing to do this and it must be viewable by the public...but all the details can be found at the day zero site!

if this is confusing just post questions in the forum and i will try to answer them as best as possible,

no flakers, newbies welcome and if you have ratings they must be 4.8 or higher with zero no sends , as always if you feel you were rated unfairly, just e mail me:)

to be really clear, this swaps is as simple as this,

goto "day zero" website, follow the instructions for writing your 101 things to do in 1001 days list,

post it to your blog or website, then return to day zero website and follow their instructions to have your list posted on their site ,

then, on the day partners are given take your partners name and get ready to be their "sponsor" for 1001 days! (maybe you could send an introduction note to them as well)

on the "send by" date go back to day zero website, check if your partner has posted their list and if they have... rate them a 5!

then on your good honor & because you are so kind and at random times send them letters & emails of encouragement based on their list goals...

hopefully you will be communication for 1001 days! lol or until they complete their list!

and maybe you will end up with a new friend!!!

have fun!!!

Oh cool! This is just the inspiration I need to get my goals set and achieved. There are so many things I want to accomplish before I'm 40 (I'm 36 now). So I'm in! :) Thanks for hosting this swap!

batarang 11/27/2008 #

I can't wait! I finished my list today, so I'm sure by the time we get assigned partners I'll be ready for some fresh inspiration!

threesweetpeas 11/28/2008 #

i have the blog all set up, link under my profile....if anyone wants to learn how to post a link in their profile just ask, well never mind i will type it now

[words you choose for the link will behere] (http://www.blablabla actual web address goes here)

it should be as above only without the space in between the ]( like that...

make sense?

now i just have to get to typing out my list!!!!!!!!

threesweetpeas 12/ 3/2008 #

i better get to writing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

reminder to self!!!

firevgoddess 12/ 8/2008 #

Oo I cant wait to get started!! I wrote out all of my list and put it all on a brand new blog devoted just to this! yay!

keahirada 12/17/2008 #

can we start working on the stuff on our list before the swap officially starts?

batarang 12/20/2008 #

I hope so, keahirada, cause I did already :)

firevgoddess 12/20/2008 #

I've started too haha I hope that's ok =)

firevgoddess 12/20/2008 #

If anyone's interested I was thinking that maybe we could use Blogger to write our lists. It's just a suggestion, that way if anyone wants to we could link our lists as friends and keep track that way. I just thought I'd throw that out there.

Here's my list if anyone's interested

batarang 12/23/2008 #

I'm a livejournaler, my list is here :)

batarang 12/23/2008 #

but if everyone has a preference for Blogger I can set up there too- I like the idea of anyone from this swap linking to each other if they want

bobilani 12/25/2008 #

I set mine up on listography.com. I love that site! :) I put it under "ongoing" lists on my profile. I'm still working on it though...

my list on listography

wooleyduck 12/27/2008 #

I started one of these January of 2008 but was considering redoing it. If I don't redo can I sign up and just use my list that's already made from last year?

threesweetpeas 12/27/2008 #

yes yes yes get to writing, whenever you like!!!

its wonderful we are listing and working on our sites early!!!

wooley, i suppose you can use your list from last year, does anyone else mind???

threesweetpeas 12/27/2008 #

oh yes, my link can be found on my profile page!

firevgoddess 12/27/2008 #

I don't mind if she uses her same list =)

Shaluna 12/28/2008 #

Here's mine:

Thank you for creating this swap, it's was so nice to make that list! :D

PurpleTX 12/30/2008 #

mine is posted - to the main site - my blogger link is on my profile.

HOWEVER - my start date is set for 2-13-2009 -- I did that intentionally, as now my end date is 11-11-11

So I ask that may partner look at the fact that I have made my list, and that it is online for all to see, as I am not sure when it will actually appear on the day zero site, since my start date has not happened yet.

threesweetpeas 01/ 2/2009 #

partners are up!

have fun!!!

batarang 01/ 8/2009 #

I've posted mine to the site but it's still not up, and messaged my partner with my link- should I mark my swap as sent or do I have to wait for the site to show it?

PurpleTX 01/13/2009 #

there has not been an update to the master list in a couple of weeks. I think the site maintainer guy has fallen a little behind.

I marked mine sent when I emailed my partner (and the link is on my profile) - I am going to message thru here as well, as I am not sure if it was ever rec'd on the email, thru here I have a read/unread thing.

Anyone else want to share there list in the comments?? I like looking at all of them... and if your send to person does not reverse send their list, how can we send a thing related to the list???

PurpleTX 01/13/2009 #

also - will anyone mind if I post links to ALL of your 12 lists (or all that I get links to) from my list???

Cinnabear 01/28/2009 #

My list is finally finished and posted here http://cinnabearzz.blogspot.com/

I'm looking forward to getting these things done and it will be nice to have someone cheering me on while I do it!! Thanks!!

jennhx 01/30/2009 #

I finally got mine done, just before deadline. Phew!

threesweetpeas 01/31/2009 #

i am late, i notified my parter, life is crazy for me, as usual but it should be up by monday!!!

thanks

threesweetpeas 01/31/2009 #

yeah sending your partner a link to the list is great and posting it here is great too!! you dont have to worry about it getting posted to the official site, just someplace on the net like their blog.............

good luck and remember to send your partner little notes now and then to encourage them on!!!!!!!

wooleyduck 01/31/2009 #

I just sent my link to my partner! I really hope this will kick me into gear so I can get everything done. :)

I'm sad -- I never received anything from either my partner, nor the person I sent to. I think this turned out to be a flop... Sigh...
