E-mail or Post Your Newsletter Online

Online newsletters are no longer new. Many churches in our Region have transitioned to this method of distributing their newsletter.

Why do so?

Currency of news, less currency to the post office, and less expense of time and paper are some of the benefits these churches have found.

How?

Another benefit to this method is that you can post your current newsletter and past issues on your church's web site. If a subscriber's e-mail service can't or won't handle your newsletter as attachment, she/he can then view and/or print it from within your web site. You are also able to send those who missed a past issue, or want to have another, to this archive of your past editions.

Check out the site http://www.useit.com. Explore the offerings. Find and read any articles that cover the theme of "writing for the web." This will not only help in your web postings, but it will help you re-hab your writing technique for today's readers for all of what you write for your congregation and community.
