    I was wondering how many people would be intrested in a live chat room where people could join to just chat or get infomation for other homesteaders? I'd be willing to set it all up if there are enough people that would enjoy it.

    ok Well i think the best option for this would be to use a messenger client. IE.. MSN, ICQ, Yahoo ect... What do yall suggest? we could also make a web page just for chatting.

    I'm with the rest of you - I want other like minded people to chat with live - that's why I like this new chatroom at Talk City. I tried that other one in MSN but no one was ever there.

    The FamilyAndHomesteading chatroom has been around about a month now, and there are usually people there in the evenings and sometimes during the mornings/afternoons. I imagine the more people start going there, the busier it will become to where there'd be someone to chat with all hours of the day and night.

    Being a late night person, I'd enjoy having more around to visit with too! LOL. Hope to chat with you guys live soon!

    Hey talkcity is cool! I've never been in a chat room before. I had to log in as fayefarms. UpNorth was taken already. That's fine though. I think I will be changing my name here to fayefarms after I move south. (won't be UpNorth anymore!)
