This is a type 3 swap due to the time for writing the journal entries.

I'm starting with the requirements just so we are all clear. :) If you are interested but don't meet requirements, please PM me.

I send out emails regarding my swaps. Please check your email! Even spam and junk! If I send you an email, please respond, or you may be banned from the swap.

Swap Requirements

You need a rating of 4.98 or higher, NO 1's or 3's since Feb 2017, and 5 type 3 swaps completed and rated. (If you do not meet these requirements, please message me and state your case.) I will angel this swap, and I'm willing to give newbies a chance at some swaps. Responding to my emails IS a requirement for my swaps! If you do not, you may be banned. I prefer to communicate through email, and it's my swap, so ...

Any questions, concerns, comments? Please PM me. I typically assign partners before noon (EST) the morning following the sign up date. I almost always send out a group email after I have assigned partners, also, so you will know when to look for that.

The idea
Thank you to@AmericanHeiress for allowing me to build on her idea in the 'shared journal experience' swap series. It is SO MUCH FUN, but because we send a whole journal, the swap is limited to the USA - shipping a journal Internationally would be too costly, and the potential to get lost is just scary! So, while I understand the reasons, it's a bit sad for me, because I LOVE international swaps. After seeing a group swap hosted by @draco I got this idea. So far, it's been fun! Let's continue!

You may join as many or as few rounds of this collected journal swap as you wish. You do not have to participate in them all. This IS a journal themed swap, but we are not sending the whole journal book (because it would get to be too expensive, they can get lost ...) For this swap, you will write (or type) the entries (see below) and mail only those pages to your partner. Each sheet you use should be standard 8.5x11 (US) or A4 sized paper. Please leave a margin on the edge and top so your partner can fix it into a binder if they wish.

To keep postage costs down you may use the front and back of one sheet for your entries (see below). Hopefully, this will help everyone interested able to participate. However, if you wish to write more, longer entries, or use only one side of the page, that is completely fine. International mail can get costly and tricky, so I'm trying to find a way to make this possible for everyone who wishes to participate. But the minimum requirement can be met on just one sheet of paper to save on postage costs. You will neatly fold your pages and may mail them in a standard sized envelope. (You do not need to mail the pages flat.)


For each round you will send 1 page (minimum): You can send longer entries if you wish, but the MINIMUM will be 1 full page, typed or handwritten. It is broken up like this:

Part 1 will be a short biography of you, at least a half page or a paragraph (5 sentences is 1 paragraph), but it can be longer. More than just "my name is, my birthday is, I live here".

Part 2 will be a journal entry of your day, at least 1/2 page long, again whatever you wish to share. If you wish to take more, that is fine. Please date your entry, though!

Part 3 This entry should be a FULL page, and can be the back side of the pager containing the first 2 parts. This entry will be a journal prompt reply. Choose from these topics: (If you can't do a FULL page on any one topic, you may use 2 topics to make up the full page of journal entry).

Choose from:

Why did you join swap-bot? What are you favorite types of swaps?

Write about a favorite childhood memory.

What holidays do you celebrate or observe? What do you usually do in celebration/observation? What is your favorite? Why?

Do you remember your dreams? Do you have recurring dreams (or nightmares)? What are some themes in them?

Free entry - choose your own topic

You may decorate your pages if you wish, just be sure they are still able to be clearly read. :) If you choose to add pictures or items like ticket stubs you may do that, but pictures or items shouldn't take the place of your written entry. This is, after all, a written journal.

VERY IMPORTANT There are several rounds for this swap :) You need to include your swap-bot ID and the name of the swap & round number with the page(s) you send so you can be rated. You MAY make that note on the top right or left hand corner of page 1/side 1

You will send those 3 journal entries to your swap-bot partner. :) If you get all 3, you rate them a 5. :) Hearts, of course, are up to you. You can then collect the entries in your binder or folder and add to it with each round.

This swap will be International, and you will have 1 partner.
