Many cameras, one Holiday

Posted By Rachel B On December 2, 2009 @ 7:00 am In Family | 5 Comments

If you’re like me and have family and friends all over the map, you probably find it difficult to share the holidays with everyone on your list. No need for all those airline miles though, because I’ve just discovered a simple stay-in-touch tip. It’s called “Many cameras, one holiday”, and it’s all about bringing you and your loved ones together – no travel required. Here’s how it works.

I create a Holiday Share site [1]…something like this…(takes just minutes by the way)

I invite friends and family to become members of my new Holiday Share site [1] – like this (again, takes just minutes)

I ask them to share their holidays with me by posting pictures, comments, and even videos to the Holiday Share site. I post some of my own to get them started.

Now my friends and family near and far can join together for the holidays. And what’s really cool, is that my holiday Share site will create a ready-made photo book [2] featuring everyone’s posted images (which I can see at checkout if I order the prints).

I have to confess that I got this idea from Shutterfly Member Joey-T [3], who has a great share site called Joey’s Memories [4]. Joey’s my stay-in-touch hero, because she does a great job of connecting with far away friends and family through her Share site. She welcomes visitors, so check out her site [4] for inspiration.

How do you and your far away friends and family stay connected during the holidays? Let me know by commenting on this article.
