For this swap, you will have 5 partners.

Part 1: You must use the BCC feature to send 5 people at least 1 random photo that you have personally taken. It could be of your pet, your room, a collection you take pride in, a project you've worked hard on, a pretty flower you saw while out on a walk, the book you are currently reading, a sunset that captivated you, or any other "family friendly" photo. This means no nudity, nothing vile or vulgar, just a nice appropriate photo that you can go in detail explaining to your partners. Which brings me to part 2.

Part 2: Along with your photo, you must also include a paragraph (at least 5 sentences) about why you chose that photo to share. I have over 24,000 photos on my cell phone alone. If I am only choosing 1 to send to you, there must be a good reason as to why, right? Right!

So - BCC Email Swap, 5 partners, 1 photo minimum and 1 paragraph about why you chose that photo to share (extra photos and explanations could earn you hearts.) That's it!

PLEASE check both your inbox and spam folders before rating, as sometimes emails get jumbled.

I don't understand the BCC concept. It's not coming up as an option on my MacBook and I'm not sure the rationale...BCC if for group emails where you don't want everyone to see each other's emails. It does not block the senders address, so I'm unsure why we wouldn't just put the email address in the regular TO: section. Please explain, as this is the only reason I haven't signed up for this swap...it doesn't make sense

Ok...well I understand a bit more now...I didn't realize we were sending the SAME photo to 5 people. I still don't know if I can get the BCC to work on my computer though. Could I just send to each person individually?

@littleflower BCC is used so that if I send an email to 5 people, those people cannot see each others addresses. If you simply use the "to" line, everyone will be able to see everyone elses email address. It's really just used to keep information private. (And while a lot of us swap with each other frequently or are here for the purpose of swaps, some people do not like others to have access to their information.)

If you cannot find the BCC line when composing an email, please only send 1 at a time so that everyones email addresses stay private (: Thank you!
