Introduction
----------------------------------- coכ -----------------------------------


Too often on Booksie, we see those darned old reading requests on our walls.
As pesky as they may be, the fact of the matter is that we are all just trying to get
ourselves and our writing out there for all to read, enjoy and share! However, this
can prove pretty tricky without the support of a few good Booksians who will give
us a chance and actually read our pieces and leave meaningful, constructive
and/or helpful comments. There are many things like this out there, such as
comment chains or requests on your wall to do a comment swap. I just thought
I would create my own to help all of my Booksian connections, friends, fans
and any passersby that happen to come across this piece, by accident or while
seeking out a way to get more Booksie fame.

However, these sometimes aren't successful because - let's face it - a lot of
us aren't interested in the same things! We have such a diverse group in the
Booksie family, all with magnificent talent and wonderful minds, but sometimes
it can be hard to find connections that share similar talents and minds to
yours. This is how I will make my comment swap thread different from others.
It will be more specific, more detailed and more moderated! Here we go.



Instructions
----------------------------------- coכ -----------------------------------



Comment below on this article and request a comment swap. I will feature
a bunch of un-swapped requests in this article, at the end. You must
complete one comment swap before you are featured. You may request
as many as you please
, but can only be featured when you complete
one. For example, I will be the first comment swap request.




Comment Swap Request
----------------------------------- coכ -----------------------------------



If you have not found a suitable request to fulfill, ie. one that is not
in your interest zone or you do not feel comfortable reading due to
content rating, you should request in the following format, or similar:

Hello, I'm Rae. Can someone check out my work?!
Title: Ride
Genre: Coming-of-age, Young Adult
Type: Novel
Rating: PG
Summary: Etta is a young girl who spends her time on the open road,
living life day by day, accepting each new adventure as it comes.
Between different older lovers, a constant change of scenery,
and an endless inner battle as she tries to escape herself and her
past (minutes, days, months and years in to it), Etta finds the true
meaning of many of lifes values and discovers what it's like to really
be alone.



Comment Swap Completion Request
----------------------------------- coכ -----------------------------------



If you have read someone's work that they have requested a comment
swap on, comment on their work saying the follwing:


[Insert comment on piece here]

I was referred here through RaeBlair's "Comment Swapping" post! I would
like to request that you comment on my novel "Ride". Thanks, Rae!


You should also post back here and request in the following format, or similar
(so I can keep track):

Hello, I'm Rae. I just read ___________'s piece ___________. I would
like them to comment on my work "Ride".

Genre: Coming-of-age, Young Adult
Type: Novel

I will be keeping track!

If a person does not keep up their end of the swap after [5] days,
please report this to me on this page. I will compile a list of people
who have not kept up with the swaps and try to notify them.

5

If you do not keep up with your side of the swap, you will not be
allowed to participate anymore! This could be great, guys. Don't
be the one who ruins it for everyone else. Please be honest and be
true to your word.

If someone leaves a meaningless comment, please report this to me
on this page. I will compile a list of people who have not kept up
