See how the other half lives

I ran a similar swap a while ago as an e-swap-and it was fun so I thought it would be nice to do this via snail mail. I’ve always been fascinated with other people’s lives-especially in other countries and other cultures.

In this swap you will send one partner a letter and photo/illustration which describes for your partner a typical day in your life.


  1. You will have one partner in this swap.

  2. You will send one letter of at least one full page (A4 printer paper size or equivalent) describing a day in the life of you.

  3. You will send one picture depicting part of your day. You may include your choice of a photo or an illustration.

  4. You will send by the due date. If you do not send on time you risk being rated a 3.

  5. You will rate your partner.

The finer details:

  • Don't forget to include the swap name and your user name.

  • You may hand-write or type and print and can decorate it if you wish-but this is not a requirement.

  • You can send more pages if you like -but the requirement is only for a one page letter.

  • Your ‘typical’ day doesn’t have to be a work day/m-f, but your letter should describe a typical day in your life (i.e.you do not have to be doing something particularly exciting-in fact the more boring or normal the better). It would be especially nice if you can include routines that may be unique in your country, your family or your profession-you can talk about your work, your kids, your meals, errands etc-you are also welcome to talk about what was not typical in that day-what went wrong-because we all have bad days too.

  • You may include more than one picture if you like-but only one is required.

*Please rate your partners ASAP and include a comment with some feedback.

*If you receive a letter (of at least one page) and a picture you must rate a 5-of course hearts are up to you.

*Allow a reasonable amount of time for international postage-but communicate with me (the host) or your partner if there are any problems.

Happy swapping everyone :)

What a beautiful swap and I wish I could join but the timing doesn't work. I sincerely hope you'd continue this swap as a monthly or every other month swap. Kudos on an awesome idea!!
