Some of my long time blogging friends may remember (or have been a part of) my little addiction to traveling journals a few years back. It started with 1000 Journals, in which I was fortunate enough to contribute to two journals (both now apparently lost).
After that, I spent a very successful couple of years hosting an ongoing project called “Glimpse of Time” on Nervousness before it was overrun by irresponsible people and snobs who defined art- for the site- in a very narrow way. During the first incarnation there, I had fourteen very successful journals, all of which returned. When I sent them back out in the “improved” nervousness (supposedly under tighter controls about who was allowed to become a member), I lost all fourteen in the ether.
Tonight, after registering my recent cards received via Postcrossing (like Bookcrossing, but with postcards), I decided to pop over and see what was happening over on 1000 Journals.
And he’s created a new project= 1001 Journals. Which are started by the participants. I still have some blank books lying around from the Glimpse of Time project, so what the hell– they might as well be released into the world to see what happens. AND best of all– It’s Brand New. I created a journal today, and it’s only #17 (1017, to be exact).
I’d REALLY like to start a couple with people who I know casually through this fun little blogging community. A cross-stitcher’s book? Maybe just a blogger’s book?
If you’re interested, please join the site (it’s free). Then leave me a comment here with your screenname over there. And I’ll send you an invite on a book.
