TKA Chats Hosts Another Star Guest
Listen up! Tomorrow night (Wednesday) from 9-10 PM EDT, TKA chats will be hosting Robin Owens as our 3rd chat star! So get those questions ready.
Not signed up yet for TKA's yahoo group? Click here for more information on how to get involved with the TKA chats! Also, before we jump into how awesome Robin is and how grateful we are of her willingness to chat with us, here is a review of how things work during these "official" chat times:
*The moderator will start and close the chat promptly at the designated time unless the guest has approved an extension.
*When you have a question, simply type an "?". The moderator will keep a list and call on each person as it becomes her turn and when the guest is ready for the next question.
*Most likely you will be kicked off at some point... simply log back in and jump back into the chat. Unfortunately, it's a yahoo thing. We are currently researching better options for our chats.
