Does anyone remember that Toby Keith song? It's an older one, and I'm not a fan of country music, but it came to mind when I started thinking about this swap, so there ya go! :)
This will be a type 1 EMAIL swap (because I can't trust my local USPS!), and it's International. Yay! :) I'm going to do this as a series, and you can join as many or as few as you wish. If you want previous rounds questions for your own journal, just send me a PM and ask. :)
You will have 3 partners to send to. You may send them all the same email, but please use BCC to send the Emails
I recently got the book "All About Me" by Phillip Keel. It's a nifty little fill in keepsake type book, with bunches of questions to reflect who you are, at least at this moment. I can't bring myself to write in a book, of course, so I started typing out the questions to answer, and thought this would be a great journal swap! But as stated, my USPS is not reliable, so I thought we could try this as an email swap. You can, of course, keep a copy of all your answers for your very own as well, this way, so you aren't sending out all your hard work as you would with a journal swap. So, hopefully it's a win-win! :)
This is all about YOU, so you can start answering these questions as soon as you put it on your watch list. :) Please note, you are required to send this swap through EMAIL, not through swap-bot messages. You can type it into the email, do a copy and paste, or attach it as a document for your partner to open, but you do need to send it by EMAIL.
The book is set up in different sections, so I think that will work best for the swap. Some questions will be super quick for you to answer, others might take a few sentences. I can't put a length on this swap for requirements, as some questions can be answered in a word or two. But feel free to write more.
If you receive an EMAIL with all the questions answered, please rate your partner a 5. If you wrote a paragraph and your partner only writes a sentence, that's ok, but you can't rate them down for that. The requirements are to answer ALL questions, and to send by EMAIL no later than the send by date. If you don't get your partner's email, please message them and let them know! I will angel this swap if you are flaked on, but you need to contact your partner, rate accordingly by swap-bot standards first.
I'd like to point out, my aim is not to start a controversy. If you are uncomfortable answering some of these questions, please just note that, and move on. If you receive the swap from someone else and do not agree with their views, it's ok. Let's not fight, ok? :)

So, this is the third swap! Please use: Swap-bot: I Wanna Talk About Me Favorites for the subject line of the email.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the swap, please send me a PM as I may not see the question in the comments section.
Who can join?
The swap is International, and I will open it up to swappers with a 4.98 or above rating, with NO unresolved 1's or 3's. If you have a 1 or 3 on your ratings records from this year, please PM me to explain what happened before you join! If you don't do this, you may be banned from the swap. Even though this is "only an email swap" no one wants to be flaked on, right?
New swappers need a 5.0 rating, and a very well filled out profile. (By this, I mean several sections of information filled out, and a good rule of thumb is that I should need to scroll down while reading it.)
If you are an unrated new swapper and wish to do this swap, please send me a PM, maybe we can do a private one. But, if you do not PM me first, do not sign up, or you will be banned. I'm all about communication and following rules. (My kids hate it! :) )
All swappers need valid address/email on records (of course, that's a swap-bot thing!), and you must sign in to swap-bot with in 2 days of the sign up deadline so I can see that you are active. (If you can't sign in w/in 2 days, send me a PM, let me know, we'll work something out.)
If I send you a PM, you need to reply. If you do not reply before sign up ends, you may be banned from the swap. That communication thing again .... Seriously, though, I don't want anyone to be disappointed by a flaker, and sometimes I need more information before I can determine if someone needs to be excluded from the swap. So, communicate.
This is going to be a fairly quick turn around, just a week from partners assigned to send by, so please be ready to send out, ok? :)
I usually assign partners the morning following the sign up date, and I often send out an email to let you know that partners are assigned and ready.
