#ChildlessHour Sunday 8-9pm GMT
Childless Hour is a Twitter chat that's been taking place every week, even over the Christmas week when it was more popular than ever. It is hosted by me, Berenice. All you need is a Twitter account, to find our account and follow us. On each Tuesday make sure you're logged in and viewing the latest messages and you can see what we're talking about. You can join in by replying to any message. Just ensure you have #childlesshour in your reply.
There's more about how to get involved with chats here and a video link here. You can also pop me any questions here but please do not worry if it's busy, or you're not sure. I encourage you to dive in and let us know if you're new and we'll look out for you.
A few rules to follow:
This is a social chat, so if you've been part of business chats then this isn't the same. Childless Hour is a place to connect with like minded souls. The promotion and use of Childless Hour to seek contacts for business or blogs with affiliated content or using the chat for research purposes is not our ethos. The chat is a safe space to share not to advertise. Persistent promotions are blocked as this can be upsetting to our members who are at different stages. This standard rule also protects us against clinics and dubious fertility adverts.
We do have a promo 5 minutes when people can share blog updates. This will be announced by the host at a time in the meeting.
The chat is deliberately informal because the rollercoaster of life during or after knowing about involuntary childlessness is complex. We may talk about something in the news, an exhibition that someone has seen. If you have a subject you'd like to talk about please drop me a DM via Twitter.
Please tag any content on Twitter with #childlesshour and all followers are retweeted. So you can grow your audience too.
I look forward to chatting with you soon.
