The Dreaded Holiday Newsletter

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Here’s an insightful and helpful post from Mary Beth. Enjoy!


The Holiday Newsletter

     The Holiday season is almost here! My husband gently reminded me that I had to write the Newsletter or at least get started on it. We have several relatives in different states and while we try to keep them current on the children’s lives/activities we sometimes forget. Luckily I picked up some tips over the years. I thought I would share them with you.

     1. Think about the people who will read it. If you were serving tea at your kitchen table what would you be talking about with your Aunt Julie?

     2. Let your children help. Our daughter made the Honor Roll one year but she was more interested in sharing how she learned to knit!

     3. Don’t boast. We shared some of our setbacks along with our successes.

     4. Before you edit, read the newsletter aloud. You may want to change a phrase or two.

     5. Keep it short – one page or less!

     6. Sometimes I emailed the newsletter but oftentimes I handwrote it leaving enough space for the children to add their post scripts.

     7. Send the newsletter with a card.

     Be sure to write the letter with seasonal music in the background.

Have a great Holiday Season!

Mary Beth
