Do you have a family blog?

If you are looking for a unique and easy way to interact with your extended family then WordPress is the ultimate solution.  

Creating an online family newsletter is a great way to keep your relatives up to date on your life.  

If you are considering doing a family newsletter, check out four reasons why WordPress is the perfect platform…

1. Price

WordPress is free, you can even use their WordPress.com service to host your site for free.  You also don’t have to pay any money to design your family website.  WordPress has thousands of free themes that will change the whole design of your site with the click of a button.

2. Dynamic Nature

WordPress is the ultimate tool to post dynamic content.  What that means is it is made for publishing time sensitive content that is continually being updated.  Out of the box with no settings tweaked WordPress will naturally publish your content by date, with the freshest news displayed.

3. Easy Picture Galleries

WordPress makes it so simple to upload a picture.  You just click one button and you can add a picture to your latest news posts.  Take it one step further though and upload a number of pictures.  WordPress has a built in gallery feature that will allow you to share all your Christmas pictures in one post.  They will appear in a nice grid formation as thumbnails that expand when clicked.

4. Add Authors

You can easily add other authors to your WordPress powered site.  Why is this important? Well imagine you and your family live in NY, but your brother and his family live in LA.  You can add your brother as an author and he will be able to add his own family updates and pictures.  You can add as many family members as you want as well.  WordPress will also show which author wrote what, so you won’t get confused on updates.

These four reasons alone should be enough to show you that WordPress is the best way to deal with family updates and/or newsletters.  

The ability to add content constantly, have it organized and include picture galleries means that your family newsletter will never be looked at as boring again.
