I haven’t had a lot of time to blog these past couple of days. I’m finishing up one project with the Memphis Zoo, shot another project for a church and still have a monster project ahead with the saddle company. All that to do, plus my Christmas shopping.
This is the first year the Tucker house hasn’t sent out traditional Christmas cards. Every year, we’ve taken a photo of the kids as we pick out our Christmas tree. I usually take it to Sams or Wal-Mart and order about 50 of the cheesy looking photo cards to send to family and friends.
But this year, the Tucker Christmas card was electronic. I own a subscription to a company called Constant Contact which sends out my weekly newsletters to about 200 churches for The ACTS Network. It’s the best way I’ve found to mass mail html messages that are around 20-50 kb in size.
So this year I used Constant Contact to send out our Christmas Cards to people I had e-mail addresses for. 94 Christmas cards were sent early this morning and I can see that more than half have opened them. I’ve heard from about a dozen friends, scattered across the country, who replied to my e-mail with their own Christmas greeting.
Sure beats spending $50 on the cards and another $20 for stamps.
In case I didn’t send you a card (and it’s because I don’t have your e-mail address), Merry Christmas.
