This past week in #CPChatNow was especially lively as we celebrated #CPChatNow’s 4th birthday! We decided to do a focus chat with various questions focusing on changes in member’s lives, questions about #CPChatNow, and a discussion about #CPChatNow’s future. This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, taking you along on this special recap.
The first question focused on what has changed in members’ lives in the last four years. Members shared many things, but it was interesting that many members had common changes:
The next question was about how members had heard about #CPChatNow. Members shared various things such as discovering it on their timeline to seeing CP celebrities like John Quinn tweet about it:
Zach also shared the story of the creation of #CPChatNow. A collaboration between John Quinn and @HandicapThis.
The next question related to specific questions or conversations that have stuck out to members. Hannah shared the long running #CPChatNow joke of the story when someone asked if her CP was caused by getting ran over by a train:
Jen tweeted about the focus chat with @The_CP_Swagger and Hunter Gandee who has made national news by carrying his brother with CP on his back to raise awareness:
Zach chimed in with the exercise chat led by Erin while I said the dating or accessible gaming ones:
Members also mentioned liking that the conversations in #CPChatNow tend to happen organically and do not feel forced:
Finally, the last question in the Focus Chat was regarding who members would like to see be a guest on a future focus chat. Members were consistent in requesting Micah Fowler of Speechless fame.
Now this brings us to our next Extend-The-Conversation question and I will use #CPChatNow’s fourth birthday as inspiration. What has changed for you in the past four years and what would you like to see in the next four?
