"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." ~~ Sylvia Plath

Slight Disruption

Greetings Chamberlings. Just a heads up that we might have a teeny bit of downtime this week as all the renewals are going through. Theoretically we shouldn't but I rarely find anything goes that smoothly.

If the site is down for you, try clearing your cache or a different browser, just to see if it loads. If it doesn't, please just be a little bit patient and it should sort itself out.

If anybody has any serious problems, please report them on the Facebook page or email me and i will try to get to the bottom of things.

 

Fingers crossed it actually goes the way it is supposed to, with no downtime at all :)

Not My President

We are declaring this site as a safe place. Hatred and bigotry, sexism and everything that the Orange Turd stands for is abhorrent and will not be tolerated here. We do not want to hear that this is politics and we can agree to disagree. You are either on the right side of history or you are not. It is that simple. If you are not, then go somewhere else. This is not open for discussion.

What the Chamber means to you
Hey Chamber Peeps! The Chamber might be invited to participate in a book, and they are interested in the members experiences with the site. How you found it, are you active, a reader, writer, lurker and what it has done for you, what it offers you personally.
There is no money for the site in this unfortunately, but it is a chance for some wonderful exposure for the site and its authors.

If anybody is interested in participating, you can email me at valentchamber@gmail.com for more information. Right now things are still early stages, but I am very excited about this.
