End of Year Questions

Please answer the following questions. You may skip any ONE question. EMAIL your partner the answers. Complete answers are required. Do not leave one or two word answers (a couple like that are ok but most should be complete sentences or maybe even a couple sentences or more).

'Last year' refers to 2018 and 'next year' refers to 2019.

End of Year Questions

Did you keep your New Year's Resolutions/goals for the year and will you make/set more for next year?

I know it's a busy time of year so I made it due after the holidays. Maybe you can work on it while waiting in lines! And if anything changes you can fix it after the holidays. :)

I will be more lenient than usual about allowing newbies and those with bad ratings because I will angel. Newbies must have well-filled out profiles with a minimum of 4 decent sections or paragraphs.

Because of the long sign up time, please make sure you have logged in a maximum of 7 days before the sign up deadline. I may make exceptions for seasoned swappers with a 5.00 rating.

I will angel after you contact your partner (or try to) at least twice, receive no or a negative answer and rate a 1. If you were already my partner, I'll pass along someone else's answers.

Full disclosure. I found the first 20 of these online with no credited source. I modified some and authored the last few myself. I'd give credit and/or ask for permission if I knew who to ask!

I have another public swap up. 100 crafty Questions. Go check them out! (Click on my profile and check the right sidebar for a quick way to find it)

thebragal 11/12/2018 #

Yeah!! Top 10!! Thank you everyone!!

Rykie 11/22/2018 #

I'd love to participate in this one, but does it have to be in an email?

thebragal 11/22/2018 #

@rykie Yes please. However if you contact your partner and they are fine with snail mail or a PM that’s fine too.

Differentlifestylez 11/27/2018 #

This is E-mail only?

thebragal 11/27/2018 #

Yes it’s email only. That’s why EMAIL is in caps in the description above. Also this question was asked and answered above. ;)

satinification 12/ 8/2018 #

Wow :) It's number 1 now!

lilyc27 12/ 8/2018 #

This questions can they have answers and pictures or links or is that too much ? (:

lilyc27 12/ 8/2018 #

These* ^^^

thebragal 12/ 9/2018 #

If you’d like to add photos or links that’s totally fine. It’s by email so if your partner doesn’t want to click the links they don’t have to. But a few photos sounds cool!

thebragal 12/16/2018 #

With so many participants, it will take me a while to check everyone. But you can start anytime as it’s not profile-based.

I tried three times yesterday to send my answers to my partner who is in Belarus (Russia), I very carefully made sure I had the email as listed but each time my AOL said it could not be delivered.I have messaged her and said I would be glad to copy it into a PM or print it and send it snail mail. This is all I can think of -- I haven't had a response by PM from her but will respond when she replies. Once of twice with large email/international swaps I've run into other addresses that I simply can't send emails to.
