I posted here before, but I never got a response, so I thought I'd try again. I'm not really picky when it comes to who I want to swap with, so I'll tell you a bit about myself, and if you like what you read, we can set something up. :)

My name is Alexis.
I'm 19. I've been a paraplegic pretty much my entire life, which I may or may not talk about.
My journal will be part text, part doodles/art and 100% honesty (I'm even flirting with the idea of including a mix CD in there somewhere.) If you're looking to swap with me, creativity is a plus, but I understand that not all of us are artists, so plan text is cool, too. I consider my self pansexual, so sexuality may come up on one of the pages. I don't want to offend anyone, but I'm not going to hold back, either. You can have what ever sexuality, or no sexuality, I just ask that you respect mine. I want to be an author one day, so you may get a page where I just talk about future novels and ideas. I've been clean from self-harm for three years, but some days are worse than others. Don't be surprised if that shows up in the journal. I don't care what you write about, I just ask that you be 100% honest. Like no one will read your journal. I want to know what goes on inside your head.

If you have any questions/concerns, or if you're interested in swapping with me, you can reach me at asmoudy@gmail.com; I'm not on here very much. To learn a bit more about me, you can look at my tumblr

Let's try this again

Since my last journal swap fell through, I really want to try again.

I think it will be really interesting to read about someone else's life and thoughts.

My name is Krystle, I'm 24 years old and I live with my gf in SoCal. I am gay, have a mental illness, and I am into the BDSM lifestyle.

I am interested in learning about all walks of life, just preferably be English-speaking, and gay friendly.

Looking forward to making a new friend.

Trying again :)

Posted here in November, but it didn't work out.  Really want to do this, so I'm going to try again!

Hi, my name is Jess!  I've never done a journal swap before, go easy on me, but I thought it sounded super interesting and fun.  I do a lot of art journaling and also work in an altered book, so I'm more used to drawing, sketching, painting, collaging etc. than just plain text.  So I guess my side would include a lot of artsy stuff along with the regular writing I do, if that interests anyone.  I will try to do equal amounts of both so there is a variety!

About Me:
- 21 years old
- Female
- Single and okay with it for once!
- Live in North Carolina
- Speak English only
- Suffer from various forms of mental illness (influences my art/writing)
- On a spiritual journey, so a lot of the things I write about include things of that nature
- Very interested in and learning to read tarot
- Love music, specifically Iron & Wine~

I'm hoping to do this with someone around my age (18-25 abouts) and preferably female, but male is okay too.  I am looking for someone that lives in the US and speaks English.  Not concerned about sexuality or religion (though it'd be awesome if whoever is interested is some form
of Pagan as that's where I'm headed, specifically Wicca, or just spiritual in general.)  Preferably has legible handwriting, but doesn't have to be perfect.  I would also love if the person I swap with likes to doodle or sketch in their journal like myself, but mostly text is okay also. 

Just one person for right now, please, not sure I could keep up with more than one.  If you would like to be LJ friends or keep up with each other through emails or elsewhere, that's great, too!  If you're interested, please comment and I'll send you my email address so we can talk more and also work out the details. :)

Hi,

Name: Norma
Age: 17
Location: USA
Language: English and Spanish

  I'm looking to swap a journal with someone near my age. It's my first time journaling. I'm interested in swapping with a person who writes about their day and how it went, what they did, or cut and paste a cute picture they saw in a magazine or draw in it and who doesn't mind reading a journal with the same things. It would be like a snippet of your life. I'm open minded and won't judge so I'd like the same from the person I'm swapping. I'd leave questions to answer or fill ins and ask for your opinion so I'd like my journal back. Things I'm interested in are books and music (from k-pop to alternative and anything in between) and cute things. I'd like it to be a month long project so that means sending out the journal towards the end of July and start of August if I find someone soon. My email is pandereo2@live.com or you can leave a comment with your email.
I think that's it!

-Norma

Let's do some epic journaling.

Hey all,
I am an avid journal writer. I have been writing in them since I was 11 years old. I just started my 44th journal. Some of them contain only writing, but I try to add artwork and pictures into them.
I would love to find someone to swap journals with and then comment on them and swap them back. I want to write things from my everyday life and paste pictures of my favorite things. I also will put in questions for you to answer that I always love to answer. An example would be, "What is your favorite smell?" I love the smell of chocolate chip cookies and Herbal Essence Totally Twisted shampoo. I hope you guys would like to do a journal swap with me. I have always been intrigued by this concept and would love to give it a try.

Looking to Journal Swap

I am 18 year old female, and I'm looking to journal swap with someone. To give you a little bit of information about myself, I have been through some rough patches (foster care, neglect, child of an alcoholic etc.) and it definitely effects me now. I have a bit of issues with co-dependency and depression/anxiety. Control is also an issue I have. Aside from that, I very much love animals, have a dog that I adore, and work at a pet store. I went to art school for four years, so my journal will also be infused with drawings and poetry.

I am not looking for a penpal, or a back and forth letters type of a deal. I'm more interested in chatting with someone else a bit, and setting a date for when we will send our journals to each other. Whether or not you want your journal back is up to you, but I would definitely want mine returned. I want someone with a very open mind, and someone who want judge me, as well as someone who will be completely honest, and write in the journal as if no one would ever read it. I want all the nitty-gritty details of your life as much as I want to share mine.

As long as your handwriting is fairly legible (I'm not the best at understanding sloppy handwriting) we can work. Your religious beliefs, sexuality, and beliefs regarding pretty much anything don't matter to me. I don't even care if you disagree with my beliefs or not. In fact, I enjoy people with different opinions.

I also think it would be cool if we could annotate each others journals with our own thoughts about what was written. I would love to become penpals afterward if it goes in that direction. If not, that's fine too. I really want someone who can stick to a deadline though. Contact me via livejournal or at elysiabaskins@yahoo.com

introducing: me

Hello, there! I hope you're having a great day/evening/afternoon/what have you. I'm looking for someone to swap journals with (I probably don't need to say this - It's what we're all looking for, right?)

I'm not really picky when it comes to who I want to swap with, so I'll tell you a bit about myself, and if you like what you read, we can set something up. :)

My name is Alexis.
I'll turn 18 on March 5th. Time is traveling by so quickly!
I'm a senior in a small high school in Maryland.
I'm kind of obsessed with Panic! At the Disco, which I may or may not discuss in my journal.
I've been a paraplegic pretty much my entire life, which I may or may not talk about.
My journal will be part text, part doodles/art and 100% honesty (I'm even flirting with the idea of including a mix CD in there somewhere.)

Aloha, Everyone!

My name is Sarah and I'm 20 years old.
I go to school in Canada and spend my summers and other vacations in New York City/New Jersey.

There never seems to be a dull moment in my life and I'm grateful for that.
I'm pretty open-minded and have a deep love for literature.
My journal will probably have poems, letters, pictures, and plain ol' text (mostly text).

Aside from wanting a swapping partner in my age range (18 - 25), I'm not picky about who I swap with. I should warn you that I may touch on controversial topics (drugs, sex, etcetera).

If you're up for swapping, let me know!

swap with me, maybe?

name: rin
age: 18
gender: female
location: USA
language: English; basic Japanese
interested in: arts, crafts, music, anime, travel...anything, really.
about: i'm a college student who likes to write but hasn't really had time for it lately. i'd like to get back to doing so and i think this might help. i'm moody and disorganized. i might forget to write for a few weeks occassionally; if you don't mind that then i'm your girl!
what i want: this is my first time trying out a journal swap, so please regard me kindly, okay?? i would prefer to swap with someone in my age range (15-25) but i don't mind if you're older/younger. i love hearing about drama in other people's lives, but if you are a mundane, normal person i want to hear about your life too~ if you're bilingual or international that would be even better!
what you'll get: you'll receive journals written on lined paper, plain paper, pretty paper, or scrapbook pages. i tend to write only when i'm upset or extremely happy; hence the moody bit. i'll try to keep things real, though, and as clean as possible~ meaning no cussing on my part, since i'm trying to stop. doodles and snippets of writing and current favorite songs will be included in my journals.

please comment if you'd like to swap with me! thank you very much!
