A New Way to Chat

by Donna K. Weaver

Over the past year, we on the iWriteNetwork board have noticed that our members use the chat room on the ning rather than the other functions available. In order to conserve expenses, we've add a Chat App to the iWriteNetwork blog here.

You'll have noticed the green bar across the top. Click on it to register--simple and free--and you can join in on chats just like you've done on the ning. Soon, the ning will go away.

Please let us know what you think in the comments.

So if I have a link on my blog to go to the network will it still work for this place or will I need to change it?

Heidi, you will access it from here. I have this page bookmarked, so it's easy to get to.

It's easy enough to get into, but it seems so strange to come in to a blank page and not see anyone's comments. Makes me nervous to jump in and say hi because I don't want to interrupt the flow of the conversation. I miss the old one.

It looks nice - in a little bit I'll invite some folks over to play with it with me so I can see how it works in action.

I really like it. It's a little different now not knowing what anyone was talking about when I come in, but I'm fine with that--I'm pretty sure that's how most chats I've used before worked. I love the colors and the adorable SMILIES. :D It's really easy to use, too. And the shared edit document/whiteboard feature is super cool.
