Date items must be sent by:June 10, 2012
Number of swap partners:1

You will have 1 partner for this swap. You will take a journal A5 or smaller and write in it for one month. The thing you have to do is each day either write down a quote or a poem you like. Nothing else, either just a quote or a poem. The quote or poem can be as long as you want.

You can decorate the journal if you wish or you can just leave it plain and maybe use nice colourful pens/markers/pencils. Obviously no rude pictures or drawings lol.


-No recent 1's or 3's. I will be checking all profiles and comments on profiles.

-No ratings lower than 4.87.

-You MUST have have a fully filled out profile to participate. Not just a couple of sentences or one paragraph. I'm talking several paragraphs at least. You are a person I'm sure there is more to you than one sentence...

-Newbies are allowed, WITH well filled out profiles.

Also I will ban people who I consider dodgy or who might be a fly in the ointment for this swap. I do not want any flakers so I will be watching. I'm the host and I have the right to deliver good swapping vibes to the swappers on here.

Happy Swapping!

Hi, what an inspiring idea! Is it ok to start filling the journal now, or should we wait until partners have been assigned? How many entries? 31? Thanks for your help. :-)

dterrell 04/22/2012 #

Is a one sentence quotation ok? The description states that you will write a quotation or poem but the requirements say several paragraphs. Thanks for clarifying for me. :)

Areona 04/22/2012 #

The several paragraphs are in regards to the requirements to be allowed in the swap as in for your profile...

Areona 04/22/2012 #

Your profile needs to be longer than one sentence or small paragraph.

Areona 04/22/2012 #

You can start filling it out now if you want @Starogardzka

What is a journal A5? Is it a particular brand, a certain size, lined/unlined?

dterrell 04/22/2012 #

Thanks! I think I misread the description. :)

Areona 04/22/2012 #

A5 is a size. You can use any sort of journal you want. Up to you just needs to be A5 or smaller. A5 is around 148mm × 210mm.

kmcscott 04/23/2012 #

Areona, thanks for the info.

Areona 04/23/2012 #

That's ok.

cynaemon 04/24/2012 #

When it says a poem or quote that I like, is this someone else's work, or can it be original work?

Areona 04/24/2012 #

It can be your own quote you just came up with from the top of your brain lol or a poem you created or you can use someone elses quote/poem and just put who it was by at the bottom. :)

cynaemon 04/25/2012 #

Okay, thanks. I am really looking forward to this swap, and will start on it now.

helen21 04/25/2012 #

Would an A6 size notebook be ok to use? Thanks.

cynaemon 04/25/2012 #

Or a composition book?

Areona 04/25/2012 #

If ya want.

Glory 04/30/2012 #

For the sake of being nit picky (is that a word?). In your opinio: Are lyrics poems?

Areona 04/30/2012 #

Yeah I guess they are in a way. lol

draco 05/ 4/2012 #

i'm finding soooo many good one's on my facebook wall/links that i'm going to have several entries for each day

ariestess 05/25/2012 #

I'm hoping that a handmade A4 journal/notebook will be okay. I just got mine bound and finished. I can redo if I absolutely have to, but would rather not...
