I thought it would be fun to do a round robin letter along the lines of a travelling postcard but with a bit more text.

How it works:

If this is your first round:

Take one piece of paper (a5 or a4 - this is 210 x 297 or 148 x 210) Write the return address in the top right hand corner. Write an introduction - date, who you are, where you're from, what you're doing today, what you love. Write about a paragraph. Decorate the page if you like but remember people need space to write. I started with an a5 piece of paper. Please don't get hung up on the size of the paper, use whatever paper you would like to, it can be rectangle, square, anything.

You then put the letter in an envelope and send it to your swap partner.

If you've taken part before:

write a paragraph to the person who originally sent the letter on the letter you have received. You then send this to your swap partner.

Once your page is full it gets posted back to you.

The letter you receive

Keep this for the next round!

If you have any questions please let me know.

Please do not join this swap if you can not commit to completing it. Round robin swaps rely on people partaking responsibly. No recent 3s or 1s. Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile.

If you decide not to continue with the swap please return the page you receive back to the original sender.

I would love to join this but haven't rec'd my letter yet. Don't know who my partner was this round or where they're from to see bout how long it should to get here...Pondering questions...

Im in the same boat but we still have two weeks to receive the letter and worst case, we can always start a new one :)

roxswapbot 07/21/2015 #

I've been in since the first travelling letter and it's always like this. Don't worry, your letter will come. She gives enough time in-between for it to arrive. And you're right, a new letter can always be started :)

So far I've only received starters I think.

Also, round 4 doesn't finish until this Friday so not everyone will have sent yet. I'm just trying to be organised and get the swaps up in a timely fashion. @beverly1962 if you go to the rating iPhone you will find your partners name. As it's flat mail 2 weeks is normally more that enough time for international airmail.

I joined this round even though I haven't received my letter yet, either. My letter for round 4 was my first one in this swap, but just know from past experience that not everyone is like me where mine is ready to go early on!

Beverly1962 08/ 1/2015 #

Got mine today...Happy Happy Happy...Ready in envelop to address and go.

I sent mine early but I havent gotten a rating and can't join again cause I don't meet the minimum cause I'm guessing I'm newbie ... I also haven't received a letter yet either ... I really would like to cont. on but don't know what to do

I forgot to select "unrated swappers welcome" box, but this has now been rectified. Please be patient for your round 4 letters, they will be on their way and this swap doesn't close until the 15th. A xx

I never got the first letter from the previous swap. Can I still take part?

annamy27 08/16/2015 #

When will we get partners assigned? Just all ready to go and excited :-)

spangleuk 08/17/2015 #

@annamy27 I will be assigning today, I am in the process of checking profiles to make sure everyone who is in the swap fulfills the criteria :)

Received my swap today - thanks Anette - it started in Germany, travelled to Singapore and Sandwich USA and landed in South Africa. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the travels so far... Will be posting mine tomorrow to it next stop in Luxembourg (wish I could go along to visit your fabulous country again!) as I'm off on a 10 day genealogy archive tour Saturday.

Eldarwen 08/21/2015 #

@inthewild That is a great tour around the world for a letter! And yay, happy to hear you liked Luxembourg! :-)
