Well, winter seems to have returned to Illinois. What miserable weather we've been having. With having to write two posts yesterday, work on stuff for EdCampChicago and some physical ailments that I won't get into, I haven't had much time to do anything else. But I did find and interesting way to create a monthly newsletter called Madmimi. Now technically they claim to be an email marketing service. But the drag and drop interface makes it very easy to create a professional monthly newsletter and give that color copier a break! The limitation to the free version is that you are only allowed 100 contacts. So this is better for an elementary level teacher because they rarely have more than 60 contacts to whom they need to send a newsletter anyway. However, they offer a number of paid services that will allow include up to 350,000 contacts! Wow!
If you send home newsletters, it may be worth looking at Madmimi.
