What exactly are you doing, Telana? How does it work?
This seems to be the number one question right now. So let me try explain….
I am trading one matchstick up for offices. How it works is I started with a matchstick that I had lying around at home, waiting for me to light one of my many candles (yes, I like candle light).
So Nikki offered me a pen for my matchstick, so I traded with her.
Then I swapped the pen with Megan for her fluffy frog (who is called Rodrigus, and he likes to travel -you can see his adventures here).
Then Retha offered to look after Rodrigus and in exchange she gave me 2 books.
Nick then traded 2 cases of his First Sighting Wine with me for the 2 books. And so it went...
So you can see, each time I trade, I am aiming to trade up in value and will keep trading up until my last trade will be with whatever I have at that time, with some fun-loving person for offices.
How do I barter or trade with you?
Because I had one lying around waiting to light a candle (I kind of have a thing for candles ;) !
Also I chose a matchstick because of it's potential- when you strike a match it has the potential to light a candle, or a bonfire- it's all about choice.
What kind of office are you looking for?
I have a vague idea, but want to wait and see what I am offered. I have a feeling that when the time comes, the right office space will be offered. So let's wait and see...
If you have any questions, post them here as a comment or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.

You copycat! This is just like the Kyle Macdonald and is 'one red paperclip' (http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/)
I'll give you a toothbruch for your R3,000 cash.

Inspired by Kyle I'm sure. Which is not a bad thing. The alternative way has been sparked, so lets see how many more see the light. A most interesting experiment which I'm sure will produce some interesting results - no matter who attempts it. That must be one heck of a toothbruch ;-))
