Being a sad Muppet at times, I was perusing the old Widget store the other day and lo and behold, I found a new toy… Hmm, I thought, so let’s give it a go.
As with most bloggers, on occasions one gets into semi-conversational mode with other bloggers who are, for all intents and purposes, like modern day Penpals. Some posts have all sorts of messages to and fro, and sometimes we dive off and do the same via email.
Of course, being a naturally shy and elusive bunch, we mostly elect to keep away from realtime social media. However, saying that, should one wish to ‘chat’ about something, we now have a flippin’ Chatroom set up! As the post title says, “Whatever next?”
Half way down the sidebar on this blog you may notice this….
The idea is that anyone can start up, join or leave a chat session. Of course it is no more anonymous, private or public than anything we scribe on these blogs, but it is that bit more interactive and our inane waffle does not stay permanently affixed to blog posts. You can enter any name or word you like I believe, but if your use Twitter, it shows your Avatar too (so what?).
To be honest, I have no idea if it really works – Bonzo is no good with a computer, but once in a Blue Moon it could be fun / useful…
One point, just remember I am in the Eastern Eurpean timezone (GMT/UTC +02:00) 😀
Not a proper post from Uncle Spike? Ok, here’s a piccie of a lovely rose I just snapped, does that help?
