Epic fail…

 

Well, that didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped.

As you might know, tonight I held my second Skypy Sunday tonight. The idea is simply to offer a place to mingle between bloggers, and have a little chat, live. I thought it’d be fun to hear some of your voices…

Last week, I had only one (though very special) guest, Jay-lyn. But I had published my post pretty much last minute. So I had great hopes that today, we’d get into party-mode.

I was a little naive, and I for some reason, I temporarely forgot about Murphy’s skills when it comes to getting in the way of people who just want to have fun…

So… yeah, I spent a little over an hour by myself.

But I’ll try again next week, and possibly the one after too. Just to see… Because I really believe this could be great.

    1. Maybe I should find a way to create a mailing list for the people really interested to join in, to send a personal reminder, a little before every gathering 😉 I’ll think about that 🙂 Thank you for the idea!

    1. I will… I am a stubborn gal. That explains why The Cove is still alive after 4 years 😉 I hope you’ll join us, someday 🙂 I’d love to talk to you ”live” dear Madame Suze!! xx

  1. There is a certain anonymity about blogging and probably people don’t want to have a “face off” at the very first meeting. Face to face chat is somewhat intimate and doing it with not only one but potentially many complete strangers is certainly intimidating for many people. I agree with rugby843. Maybe an message chat of some kind to let everyone break the ice behind a wall. I don’t even like to FaceTime with my family 🤣

    1. I agree… I, for one, felt very nervous about doing this last week. I was afraid not to know what to say or how to entertain people… I just want to point out though, that these cyber meetings are just audio gatherings. If others want to turn their camera on, it’s fine with me, but I will not 😉 I’m like you… I am not even comfortable doing video with my family and friends 😛

      I’m thinking about alternative experiences, that would make people more comfortable… *Brainstorm ongoing* Who know’s what’ll come out of it?? Hopefully something interesting 🙂

  2. Cyranny, you might have seen on the blogging community site I put up a post for a voice chat session sometime soon (stole your concept). I think it’s great to connect with bloggers, even if voice, if you’ve all been interacting for long enough.. or feel comfortable.
    Stick with the idea, I am still in. My approach would be to gather peeps email addresses who so you can send them a meeting invite, thats what I might do.

    1. Thank you for your kind words 🙂 No worries about ”stealing” the idea… I take it as a compliment.

      I didn’t want to invite people by email, because I didn’t want to put any pressure on people to join in. I want people to participate just because they want to, not because I expect them to. I’ll sure stick with it… Who knows what next week will bring?

      *fingers crossed*

    1. Hahahahahahaha, I am a bit stubborn. I will stick to it for at least a couple of weeks more 😉 And I might create a mailing list to remind people who are interested enough… *Big hugs* dear Bee xx

    1. No worries, dear Caramel… I don’t feel like anyone is ignoring me 😉 I just hope some people will get interested enough in having a friendly chat to join in in the next few weeks. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll find something else…
