You MUST have already participated in at least one of the previous Shared Journal Experiment Swaps to join this swap. NO NEW EXPERIMENTERS at this time.

For this swap, you will be sending the journal you currently have back to its owner. You MUST have a journal from a previous swap. You are NOT sending out a new journal!

  1. You MUST post the owner of the journal you will be sending. This is how I will know if you belong in this swap. If you do not post the name of the journal's owner in the comments, you will be booted from the swap.

  2. Go ahead and answer the previous prompt, add a bio, and add an entry. A new prompt is up to you. Not required since some people may choose not to continue the Shared Journal Experiment once it starts up again. Edit: Feel free to include a note to the journal's owner encouraging them to return whatever journal they have if you see it is a name that hasn't been around for awhile! Thanks for the great idea @Cubsfanjennie !

  3. On a notecard, postcard, or paper, if you wish, you will need to write a note for your swap partner. This note will include the following:

    a. the name of the swap

    b. the name of the journal's owner that you returned

    c. approximately how many entries it had in it

    d. Anything else you want to say is just fun extra, but not required.

  4. Mail the journal back to its owner. (Address should be in the back of the journal)

  5. Mail the note to your swap partner to get your rating.

I have two journals and will be delighted to send them back: one belongs to Felicia Artistic and the other belongs to cazurus -- or maybe iy's caqurus. I'm more than happy to send them back although I'm not sure I'll add a story as the prompts weren't very inspiring. I'm glad you're doing this. I haven't seen my name mentioned but if I don't get my two journals back I don't care, I have my own stories in my file. I harassed the person who originally started these swaps about how it could possibly work; she was sure it would -- it didn't!

noone7212 04/19/2013 #

Cubsfanjennie 04/23/2013 #

I am sooooo bummed to not see mine here.....oh well, sigh. I know that's how the cookie crumbles.....but it is still a total bummer....

Cubsfanjennie 04/23/2013 #

Maybe we could also send a note to the journal owners that we are returning to saying that if they currently have a journal and are not in this swap to please return to the owner.....just maybe a friendly reminder to return one they may have.....Can ya tell I'm grasping at straws to hopefully get mine back? Is the desperation obvious? lol

savannahjan 04/23/2013 #

That's an awesome idea, Jen! Go for it!!! Adding it to the swap as an idea!

KateKintail 04/25/2013 #

Journal filled out with some extra goodies and a note about sending any journals she has back to their owners. Journal sent back to its owner. Postcard sent to my partner. Mission accomplished!

savannahjan 04/26/2013 #

looks around sheepishly I have Macie McGowan's journal.

Rant: What is so hard about putting a username in a journal?

mcovey 05/11/2013 #

have recieved one of mine back

lattejust4me 05/16/2013 #

My journal was not returned - BOOO. If we do this again, though, I'm sticking with a smaller journal and one that's not so dang heavy!

savannahjan 05/21/2013 #

It is a bit discouraging to me that more than one person in this swap "didn't know I had to send a card" considering that #3 and #5 tell you exactly what you are supposed to do with this swap.

bansley 06/ 2/2013 #

Never received my journal. What a bummer. Despite how much fun I had writing in others' journals, I don't think I'll be participating in the future - no sense putting in more money and time for no return.

midteacher 02/15/2014 #

Sending home IsadoraWing(Dina). My journal was lost long ago!
