Come Meet My Family!

Tis the season for sharing family news via christmas cards and newsletters.

But rather than writing a newsletter, I'm putting my efforts and energies into a more visual, oral, interactive and hopefully appealing version of the traditional Christmas Newsletter. After all, this IS 2008.

So, in hopes that you disagree that a full page written letter is preferential for obtaining your information about my family (if you even care at all)... I'm creating several holiday year-in-review posts over at my family's blog, Lenssen-Palousa. I will share new photos, video and information there several times between now and Christmas.

I hope to see you there!

I agree about the Poulsbo RV catalog--I laughed so hard at that part. That's definately something you wouldn't get if you didn't live in the Seattle area. I love your holiday card...very classy.

Hello. I recently found your Christmas newsletter online using the “Google Alert” tool. I’m a writer in the preliminary research phase for a “how-to” book on writing holiday newsletters, with an emphasis on utilizing blogs and other new technology. I may be contacting you in a few months to find out if you would be willing to speak with me about how and why you write Christmas newsletters.

I have written my own Christmas newsletter for over 10 years, the “old-fashioned” way. However, I have created a “just-for-fun” group on Facebook that you’re welcome to join, called “Christmas Newsletter Writers: We're not evil, just communicative!”

Happy Holidays!
