Today is Valentine’s Day. Since I know you’ll all be spending a lot of time sending Valentines and reading the ones others have sent you, I’m going to make my post today very brief.
First of all, will you be my Valentine? I hope so, because I love all of you.
Did you remember to give your special sweetie a Valentine? How about your kids and grandkids, if you’re old enough and fortunate enough to have them? Special friends?
Blue Mountain and other electronic greeting card companies have greatly simplified the business of sending cards. If you don’t already use one of these outfits, check them out. You save trips to card shops, the price of cards, postage and hassle.
At Christmas, my wife and I each pick a card we want to send to the people on our lists and add a personalized message. Then we go through our email address lists which we’ve loaded into Blue Mountain, and click a button. Voila, we’ve sent cards to dozens of people each. We could pick separate cards for each person if we wanted to.
Our Valentine lists are not as long as our Christmas card lists, but we still send them to several people each, including each other. And birthday cards throughout the year.
Okay, so we benefit our own laziness by using these cards, but how about the people we send them to? They don’t have any envelopes or cards to recycle or put in the trash. All they have to do after reading them is delete them. So simple on both ends.
Gotta go. Need to get over to Blue Mountain and post a card on Facebook for all my friends there.
