This is the second swap in my series of Shared journal swaps.

IF YOU TOOK PLACE IN THE FIRST ROUND: you have received a journal with a bio, a journal entry, and a journal prompt. Your task now is to answer that journal prompt, write a bio about yourself, and a journal entry to include a response to what your partner wrote, and then end with a journal prompt for the next person to answer, and then send your journal off to your partner.

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND: Please feel free to join even if you didn't take part from the start. What you will do is get a journal, notebook, comp book, anything with at least 80 pages and on the front cover, write what the journal is for and who you are, on the back page write your name and address and where to send the journal home when it is full. Then you will write a bio about yourself (about a page or so) and then one journal entry about your day, your self, your thoughts, life, the world, whatever comes to mind that you want to write about. On the next page you will then write one journal prompt for your partner to answer. Thats it, send it off to your partner!

You will have one month to send out your journal.

Now the fine print: I will check profiles carefully, if you look fishy, and offer no explanation, i will ban. If you are new, have a VERY well filled out profile and at least 5 mail swaps completed.

I hope this all makes sense, and please feel free to ask any questions.

Hi Jesshens1125,

My sister joined your swap and you dropped her because of her one [1] rating- which was explained as not merited due to her late send and the user never logging in again.

You yourself have three [1] ratings, as well as a WHOPPING ten [3] ratings.

Many of the users who deemed you such low ratings- are still active.

It would seem that the numerous low ratings you got- were merited by the lack of effort and lack of communication you gave for the swaps you joined. You admit on your profile being a flaker- my sister wasn't. Don't you find that a tid-bit hypocritical?

When my little sister asked as to: "why she was dropped"

you responded childishly with: "my swap, i do what i want"

sad to say but very true: i am so very happy and glad that my sister won't be participating in such a poorly mannered, and ethical coordinator's swap such as yours.

i hope that many people will think thrice the times you think of dropping people before letting you join theirs like you did to my little sister.

You, having too many low ratings and should know best of how hard it is to join a swap- yet you treat my sister with a one [1] rating as worse than yourself.

Kudos dear friend, life is unfair and i know it. But try to be as fair as possible. As i see you yourself aren't.
