Thought I'd mix this round up a bit. Hope you faithful swappers don't mind too much. :) I've noticed that this group likes to write, and so far I've been so happy to see SEVERAL pages of entries. You're awesome. :)

Thank you to @AmericanHeiress for allowing me to borrow her 'shared journal experience' idea to create this swap. :)

This will be a journal swap, BUT we are only sending pages to each other, not the whole journal. It will keep down costs, keep the time between shorter, and you won't loose your journal! Sounds good, right? I hope so! You can join as many as you wish.

You may want to have a binder or folder to collect your pages in, but you will NOT be sending it out. It's just going to be a place to collect your pages.

You may type your entries or hand write them, but be sure they are standard computer page size, (8.5 x 11"/ A4) so they will fit in everyone's binder or folder. Please leave room on the left edge and the top of the page in case your partner wishes to punch holes in the page to add to a binder. :) Entries should, of course be neat and clearly written or typed. (You may use the back of the first page, as long as your ink doesn't bleed through. Pages may be neatly folded and mailed in a standard size envelope.)

For each round you will send 3 pages (minimum) if you wish to write more, please do, but 1 page is the minimum:

Page 1 will be a short biography of you, about 1 page long, but it can be longer. Whatever you choose to share. (Note: If you are partnered up with someone you have previously sent to, you may skip the full bio and list other information about yourself, photos of yourself, a few 'top 10' type lists, etc. You don't have to write another full bio.)

Page 2 will be a journal entry of your day, about 1 page long, again whatever you wish to share. If you wish to take more than a page, that is fine.

Page 3 will be a journal prompt reply. You may choose from ONE of these topics:

How do you feel when you journal? Do you feel accomplished? Do you ever go back and re-read your journals? What do your journals/pages look like, usually just writing, or do you add pictures, tickets, etc?

Have you ever had a pen pal? How did you meet? Have you ever met up in person, or just exchanged letters?

Do you have many people "shame" you about something in your life? (example: 'parent shaming', 'home/house shaming', 'hobby shaming'?) How do you react to that?

What holidays do you observe or celebrate? What do you usually do for holidays? Do you have a favorite? Why?

Wait - this is just a regular collected journal swap! Where's the magpie part? Well.... After you write your entries, MAGPIE up those pages! Add bits of your day to the page - the tea bag tag from today, a newspaper headline, the receipt from what you did last night, a ticket stub from somewhere you went. You don't have to add another page to the requirements, just 'decorate' your typed or written pages.

You will send those 3 items to your swap-bot partner. :) If you get all 3, you rate them a 5. :) Hearts, of course, are up to you.

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

Sound good? Any questions, concerns, comments? Please PM me.
