I always looked forward to emails when I came home from work. They never took that long to do. Then I was also writing for newspapers and the magazine so I was busy too but I managed to find time for the computer because I loved coming on to talk. I guess if you like something you will find time. It is always nice talking to people and I have made a lot of friends in other countries through Spark.

Maybe they are just really busy. I try to log in on the mornings. But with getting up early and rushing out to PT or other doctor appts right now, that doesn't always happen. And Sometimes I plan on coming in here after that, but work starts calling and emailing me wanting my time, so that doesn't always work out. Evenings I usually save for family time. Sometimes if I am not too tired I might check in before going to bed. It is just hit and miss right now with me.

When I was working I always made a point after supper to go on my team and answer what was there. I always do that, but guess that Is a habit with me.
I wrote some topics on and for some reason they did not come on. They were on writing. I have heard others remark about that happening too.

So far the team seems to be full with topics when I open. We only have Abby, Marian, Jackie, You and me here, that post.. Don't know what happened to Mary or others that are listed. I guess they just look.

People in that age group are probably retired too, which helps them have more time to spend doing whatever they want when they want. And some of them can be lonely, and by themselves too, so that probably helps that team stay more active.

I am on the 70 team and it is forever filled with chatters. Maybe older people have a lot to talk about, their aches and pains, places they went to, etc.

We could talk about health issues, places we traveled, what we are interested in, etc. All you need is people starting a topic and then the topic needs to be one that will continue.

It is hard being a leader and trying to find topic that don't end. I know as I have put on many that will start and just die.

Hate to see this team die.

All the teams I am on are struggling with it. The ones for pets seem to do better, but even they struggle, and some of them do better than others. I think it depends on the team members a lot, not just on the team leaders. And differ times of the year seem to be better than other times too.

Do you ever wonder why some teams have people posting all the time? Maybe it is the subjects, or maybe people just talk about what they did that day? No matter what the topic they seem to post to it. That is what you call a wonderful team to join.

We are trying to make our team like that once again. Somehow, it seemed to slip backwards.
Many topics were posted but I guess not the ones posters wanted to chat on. We have even asked what they want but no response.

My hope is that we once again get it all back and chatters too that will contribute. Leaders should not be leaders if they can not contribute and take up a space on the board. We need all leaders to put on topics and help make this the best team we can.

Opening up to a lot of people talking is what makes a team. Keeping them talking is what takes work. Can we do it? Will we do it? That all depends on our leaders finding topics that people want to post to. Together, we can make it, alone we can't.
