Thank you so much for your patience and participation in this swap! I'm happy you are a part of this group and am excited to keep this moving. This is round #5; there will be 2 weeks for your notebooks to send before the next round will be open to join. (3 weeks, the next round will close). Don't be afraid to skip rounds if necessary. This will take time!
If you are new to this traveling journal type swap, please see below:
To start, find a small soft cover book about A5 size (5x7 inches). Something like a travel notebook inserts with about 30 pages should work perfectly. The book should not be too thick or heavy and please no spiral books. Homemade notebooks are OK! Think about the weight of the book and the cost of sending it. Keep in mind and be considerate to others who will have to pay for your notebook to be shipped each round.
The first person starting the book will decorate the cover however they choose, wallpaper, wrapping paper, anything you like.
Inside the front cover write your name, address (so the book is returned when it is full) swap name and your swap-bot username.
Fill out two full pages in the notebook with an introductory letter, an entry about your day, where you're from, the weather, or whatever you'd like. Add photos, stickers, washi tape, drawings, etc, if you wish. I've seen A-Z lists on someone describing themselves, Netflix show rating lists, funny jokes, favorite quotes, collages. Add anything you would like to see someone else do. Be creative! Use only pens that do not bleed onto the next page, please. Don't forget to date your entry. You may add something separate for your partner if you wish, a pen pal intro letter or something else related to their likes, but you don't have to. Also, write your swapbot ID so you can be rated.
When you are done with your pages, send the book onto your partner.
That partner will then wait for the next swap in this series and fill out their pages and send on to their partner and so on.
Once the book is full, the last person to write in the book will send it to the owner of the book (as stated on the inside cover).
At the end when your book is returned to you, you will have a book full of stories and entries from all over the world!
Please allow plenty of time to receive and send the book. This swap will take commitment to subsequent swaps in this series. If you don't plan on continuing with later swaps please don't join. I'm sorry but this is supposed to be fun.
Do not worry if you miss a round while waiting to receive a notebook. It matters more that you join rounds in order to get a partner and be able to send notebooks on.
