the swappers list on pg 1 should be updated, so check and make sure everything's ok and nothing got lost during the server change or anything wonky.

So would we send them a completely new, unaltered, non written in journal and they write stuff in it/alter it and then send it back?

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

question, are you matching us by interested or opposite interests?

this is JUST an example

say i liked rain, and someone else liked sun.. am i going to be writing to that person, or am i going to be writing to someone who liked rain?

i know that was a sucky example, but i think it might be fun to write to someone with different interests, so that the journal would be completely different from something YOU (being the peson sending) would do

Krysta - you alter it in whatever way and write in it, then send, then the person you wrote to alters it more and writes back, and you continue in this way with both partners...

Hertrigger... That's a really good question.  Some people gave me an idea of what they'd want in a partner... but otherwise I don't know what I'll do.  Everyone feel free to give input.  Do you want partners with similar interests, opposite interests or one of each?

2 partners.  one you send to, one you recieve from.  Then for part 2, you recieve the original journal back and send back the one you recieved.  From there, it's up to you to keep the chain going...

Think of it as having 2 penpals, you initiate contact with one, and then are writing back to another.

Well, I think it would be neat to have someone with different interests but for me I would want them to be in a different country. What Im trying to say is, I would want someone culturally diverse from myself but not too different from the specifications I made in my list to you. I think I included a good list of what I want and dont want in a partner.  Hopefully that will make sense.  Undecided
