Week Two - Communication

Well, some of you have already felt the bug of no communication with your swap partner, and I'm to understand that the need to remain incognito during this swap is okay if that is what your partner chooses, however . . .

People get nervous when they don't hear from their swap partner because they don't want to receive nothing when the whole idea of a swap is to receive as well as give. I only say this because I've been the victim of a bad swapper. Victim - that sounds so . . . so tragic, doesn't it?

So, these are my suggestions:

  • Post on your blog weekly so that your prefect knows that you are around.
  • If you haven't received any email messages in the last 7 days to your Potter account or your Muggle account check-in. More than likely someone has sent you something and maybe it's bouncing.
  • Send anonymous e-cards to your partner via a free e-card service, such as Hallmark.
  • Leave an anonymous post on their blog letting your partner know that you are thinking of them, but you don't have to sign your Potter name. Let them know that you wish your identity to be a surprise. Just sign it "Your HSKS4 Secret Pal," or something to that effect.
Communication - Day #2

Thank you for clarifying and encouraging. I have chosen to not contact my spoilee personally with real life email nor character email. But want to reassure her that I am fulfilling my obligation to spoil her.

I will try with the e-cards as well now so that she can continue to be reassured.

Thanks for posting.
