Description:

Before we begin, let me just start by saying this is a LONG TERM COMMITMENT/MONEY SWAP. If you can't make that commitment, this may not be the swap for you. If you don't want to be a part of this swap for 20 or more rounds (which could mean over $50 in postage by the time it is all over), this may not be the swap for you. If a year is too long to wait to finish a swap and get your journal back, this is not the swap for you. This swap is a COMMITMENT, and if you can't follow through for the LONG TERM, then perhaps you should pick another swap. I'm sorry to be blunt, but I also want to be honest, and up-front to protect the swappers who do join.

JOINING THIS SWAP DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL EVER SEE YOUR JOURNAL AGAIN. THIS IS A HIGH RISK SWAP, JOIN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

That being said, on to business If you have a journal you'd like to use from the original series of this swap, feel free to do so. This is the reboot of the series of shared journal swaps. Here's what happens:

** IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST ROUND.** 1. Obtain a journal/notebook/comp book with at least 80 pages. (Comp books MAY be too big for this swap as they take a lot of time to fill. Just a tip. You can still use them. But journals with slightly smaller proportions may work better.)

  1. On the inside front cover write who the journal belongs to - THIS INCLUDES YOUR SCREENNAME!

  2. On the back page (or inside back cover) write your name and address and where to send the journal home when it is full.

  3. Write a bio about yourself (about a page or so)

  4. Then write one journal entry about your day, yourself, your thoughts, life, the world, whatever comes to mind (All of the above?) that you want to write about. (more than a page, please!)

  5. On the next page you will then write one journal prompt for your partner to answer.

That's it; send it off to your partner!

NOT YOUR FIRST ROUND: If this is not your first round, that means you have received a journal, and are ready to proceed. 1 Answer the prompt your partner provided. Really, this should be at least a page. Really give a decent answer. 2 Add your bio (at least a page) 3 Add your journal entry (MORE than a page!!!!!!!!) 4 Add a prompt for your partner to answer 5 Send it on its merry way!

FOR THE FINE PRINT: *Required swaps: rated for at least 10 Type 3 swaps

*Rating 4.95

*Well filled-out profile

*Newbies: Are allowed up until Round #3, after that its a veterans only swap. This is the only time I will be allowing Newbies to join so take advantage while you can.

I will be going through everyone's ratings, etc, to check over and prevent any issues or flakers on this swap. ----- *ANY suspicious swappers will be removed. I have the final word. I'll be fair, but I'll be strict.

You will have two weeks to send out your journal. Feel free to PM me if there are any questions. **I will also angel if needed, but please only sign up if you are willing to participate, nobody likes a flaker.

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 08/ 1/2017 #

mine will go out as soon as partners are assigned

USAFwife 08/ 4/2017 #

Hey everyone, I'd just like to pass on some info I was given today. These journals shouldn't be mailed as 'media mail'. Media mail rate is reserved for only books that are printed and bound, not for diaries and journals. This is what my mail carrier told me today, when I received my journal in the mail. Also what I was told at my post office when I mailed out my journal a few days ago. Cindi

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 08/ 4/2017 #

@USAFwife it depends on the post office, all media mail, books, letters and things that are written go media, this is how Chicago is, I cannot control it.

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 08/ 4/2017 #

@USAFwife how does your carrier know it was a journal? I am confused here, my carrier delivers my mail and thats it

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 08/ 4/2017 #

Oh nvm I wrote journal swap on the envelope, so every post office from me to you saw media mail and journal swap and they delivered it to you, this makes no sense to me. Media mail but they mailed it to you priority within 3 days. Maybe its a matter of preference? I am just trying to understand

USAFwife 08/ 7/2017 #

@craftymommaonabudget - they opened the envelope. Anything sent media mail can be opened & inspected. Idk how they decide, but it happens here. A. Lot. Even packages that are obviously books.

shinyserra 08/14/2017 #

I had @AZmom s journal.

AZmom875 08/22/2017 #

@erinmdono She has no ratings, hasn't been on swap-bot since AUG 4th, and never marked a journal as mailed to me. Who ever sent a journal to her, should note that this journal will not likely get back into circulation.

I hope the host can look at who sent to her, cause that person might remember the name of the owner of the journal.
