After thinking about how often I do and don't like getting pics and news about my friend's and relative's babies, I sent this email today, and I am really curious to see what I get back. Did you do anything like this? Most of my closest people are long-distance, so for example, my mom wants practically daily videos, but I know my BFF doesn't need that level of email clutter :)

 

"Hello all!

In the interest of not bombarding people with stuff they don't want to see and also not excluding you from things you may want to see, I had an idea. Please reply with your Baby Stuff Interest Level. I gave them names to be cute, but IDK if my assumptions so far have been correct. You won't insult me if you pick #4, I promise :). 


1. Grandparent: I'd like to see all the coos and cuteness news, important or not, as often as possible (every few days). 
2. Aunt and Uncle level: I'd like to see just particularly interesting pictures and news (once a week or so). 
3. Good friends level: I'd like to see just particularly interesting pictures and news (no more than once every few weeks). 
4. Facebook level: I'll just see what you post on facebook (about once a month, maybe)."

That's a great idea.  I just post stuff to Facebook once every few weeks and then e-mail randomly to family members maybe once every few months.  I'm obviously terrible about it.  I was thinking of setting up a Dropbox folder and sharing it with close friends and family.  It gives people the option of looking whenever they want to see the newest stuff, but it's totally non-intrusive.  You only see the pics if you open the folder, and nothing comes to your e-mail or Facebook.  The only downside is that it requires people actually setting it up, which most people probably won't do.

I like the Dropbox idea! It is probably best for level 1 people who will be motivated enough to set it up and keep up.
