I'm revising this old swap.

I wanted to start a penpal swap, but there's a few flying around at the moment. When I start writing an intro letter to a new penpal, I don't know what they want to know! So, I had this idea for a swap!

You will write out 25 questions that you would like your partner/penpal to answer. You won't write anything about yourself in this first letter, just these questions you'd like to have answered. Examples, can be:

"Do you have children?" "Where did you grow up?" "What's your favorite animal?"

Pop it in an envelope and send by snail-mail. So you will recieve 25 questions from someone, and you will send 25 questions to someone different. Therefore, if you get a reply from both of these people, you have the opportunity for 2 brand new penpals! You can agree to keep writing to each other, or you can just leave it at the 25 questions.

I would recommend that when you recieve your 25 questions, you include another list of 25 questions in with your answers when you reply. This way you can both have a bunch of knowledge about each other.

Please no rude or overly personal questions, keep in clean and friendly. Open to newbies, as long as you have your profile filled out with your likes and dislikes etc. Everyone else must have a rating higher than 4.7 .This swap is international. Edited to add: No unexplained 1's or 3's in the past 6 months. I will look at profiles before partners are assigned.

Any questions, leave a comment or message me!

Please rate your one partner who sent you the 25 questions. After you've done that, I think it would be expected of you to write back, at least once. But you will not be rated on this. Hopefully we will have two new long lasting penpals!

DBlalock 05/31/2013 #

Hi @passionswirls It is possible for you to join this swap but you must have a well filled out profile. Your's doesn't meet that yet!

Hi! This is my very first time with swap bot and I have a couple of questions. How does the assignment of swapping happen? Do I get to choose or do you? Do we all actually start swaping on June 7th? How soon will I have swapping partners?

PressedPennyCollector 06/ 7/2013 #

Already got my letter waiting on a name LOL

msugirl06 06/ 8/2013 #

So are we supposed to pick our own partner or do we get one assigned to us??

priscilla 06/ 8/2013 #

You will get a partnet today

spicemom 06/ 8/2013 #

hi Neesa I mailed out your 25 questions Alison

My 25 questions has been done and into the mail - Last Thursday, but I could not bring up the Swap- Bot site to recore, so I finally gave it a try to just type in "Swap-Bot" and it came up. Happy Me, cause I am back in here again. So sorry to record my sending the swap later than the deadline. :-) MiniQuilt
