Do you/would you do a family newsletter?

Posted (edited)

In the following thread, upsidedownhug, talks about a newsletter he sends out to help keep his widespread family connected:

 

Now I'm wondering, does anyone else here do the same? Or would you like to? Or have you in the past? What do/did/would you include? And what has been your experience, if any, w/ such newsletters?

I would love to - and in the past I have tried to do an annual "newsletter", but my childen aren't interested, as far as I can tell, so I gave up.  I don't have enough news from folks to do an annual, so more frequent seems improbable.

 

Anyne got any ideas about how to get the AC interested? :P

My kids started a group on one of the social media channels, more like a blog than a newsletter. Whoever wants to chimes in with news, pics, sayings, just a way to reach out. I signed off on the group a while back because I felt it wasn't age appropriate for me :) and I didn't want to be a wet blanket. They are still going strong. I figure, as long as they keep in touch with each other, that's what counts.  Their father is out of the picture, and I'm kind of happy to fade away. So let the new generation surge on!

My kids do group texts/emails, sometimes I'm included, sometimes not. They have their own "underground" that I have no desire to be part of. I love their closeness. DD once said if there was some sort of natural disaster where she and all the kids were the survivors, she'd take them all in, get a bigger house and have 13 kids (her 1, brother's 5, sister's 2, BIL's 3 and her goddaughter) 5 girls, 8 boys...because they are the 'sibs' kids. The group texts that do include me are pix of the gk doing whatever they do or other family business....all good
