As part of my simplying a few years ago (after having kids), I stopped sending Christmas cards. It was a good move for us then, and I find I'm so much more relaxed around the holidays. In a further move to simplify, I recently closed my Facebook account, which has been an even BIGGER blessing. However, I'm aware that FB was how many of our friends and familty kept in "touch" and saw pics, etc. I'm thinking of sending a Christmas newsletter this year, but want to do it electronically to make it easier and cheaper, and to also give people permission to not display it :-) Any services that you recommend? I currently use MailChimp for my business, but I don't think they will let me easily integrate my gmail address book. I'm really looking for a way I can link it to the email addresses I already have in my address book rather than having to enter them all. I've stumbled on IncrediMail but haven't been able to explore it, anyone know if this will work for my purposes?
Any help is appreciated!
