Each time I come to the CoBM site I check in the chat and there has never been anyone there!  I am very interested in connecting with fellow members, but I'm finding it difficult.  Any suggestions?

Perhaps we should consider scheduling a chat time.  See what times are good for people and try to get something booked where by members will know ahead of time when others are likely to be in the chat and thus try to be in the chat themselves.  I've only ever chatted there when its been announced ahead of time or I went on the forum and someone had mentioned being in the chat for a while.  Otherwise I tend to avoid it.

That sounds like a great idea!  

I'm usually free most evenings except Tuesdays.  

I live in a rural area 2 hours away from the nearest city.  Connecting with people who are like myself would really be great!Smile

I agree that letting people know you're in chat, or will be at a set time by making a post here seems to work pretty well.

My availability times can be odd because of the time difference, but i enjoy the occasional chat!

Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are good for me. Evening's is usually when I'm on the computer.

Evenings are usually best for me, especially Saturdays and Sundays.
