Did You Know? You Can Create Your Own Chats, 24/7!

Hi, all! It's time for another installment of "Did You Know?"! This one was spurred by one of our contributors, who would like to see more impromptu connections made on this site!  I'm all for making more connections, as I'm sure many of you are, so I wanted to point out a key (yet currently very underutilized) tool on this site that makes spontaneous connecting very easy.

It's called our "Casual Cookie Chat in Real Time!" chat room, and it's open 24/7 to allow people to ask questions, introduce themselves, interview others, or do whatever your heart desires, within the limits of this site's Terms of Use.  In short, it allows you to create your own chats!

Here are some ideas for the types of "events" that you can stage in this room:

1. Pop-up "Celebrity" Cookier Chat: Reach out to your favorite cookier, and ask her/him to answer questions there for an hour one day. 

2. Informal Informational Hang-out: Gather your cookie friends at an appointed time to chat about whatever burning cookie question (or questions) you'd like answered once and for all!

3. Fan Club Meet-up: Gather your Facebook or Periscope fans for a more personal one-on-one (or I should say, one-on-many) chat with you.

Just be sure to let me know if you plan to do any or all of these things, and on what day and time, so I can blast the event into my social media channels. (And make sure no one else is planning to do something similar at the exact same time! )

You can access the chat room by clicking on "Chats" in the main navigation line, and then clicking on "Chat Rooms" or "Casual Cookie Chat in Real Time!" just slightly further own the page. Alternatively, you can use this direct link, or click on any of the following "chatter" icons that you see on this site.

I hope to see more connections made in our 24/7 chat room in the coming weeks!

Julia,

This is a wonderful idea.

I placed myself in the Chat Room a few weeks ago, comfortable sofa by the way, and thought that others would join up and we'd talk cookies, but nobody's arrived.  So how do I initiate a conversation?

One possible way is to post in your social media channels that you're planning a "chat" on this site on XYZ date and time, about ABC. (But do clear it with me first, because it would be very confusing to have two chats running at the same time.) And to encourage people to join then by sending the link to that page. You can also post an announcement in this site's forums. Note: that chat area is not moderated, meaning that comments will post immediately as soon as someone leaves one, so it will be up to the organizer to manage the conversation flow real-time, if needed. Also, to participate (comment), one has to be a Cookie Connection member, but the sign-up process is pretty easy and free, and can be done by clicking on the right hand link on the home page.
