In a vain attempt to stay relevant, I have decided to alter how I communicate to the ward. In the past, I inundated your inboxes with a flood of mail. Over time, the impact of such a steady stream of e-mail became less interesting and easy to ignore.
Added to the problem of too much e-mail, I also discovered that many ward members don’t use e-mail as a consistent channel of communication. Texts and Facebook posts are starting to make e-mail a far less effective tool.
So, I am changing with the times. From now on I will post all instructional information in this blog and post the links in the ward Facebook page. But I will also text and e-mail the link to this blog at the same time. This way I can communicate to the widest audience with the least amount of interruption.
The blog medium also gives me the flexibility to use multimedia to convey a message which, if used properly, can enhance the message without adding more text. And who needs more text….
Let me know your thoughts by posting comments on the blog.
