Shutterfly Rocks!!

When my friend Kerri posted on her blog today about Shutterfly giving away 50 Free Holiday Cards to bloggers, I logged into my account for the first time in years. Literally...years. The last pictures that I had uploaded were from Justin's birth and the first year of his life. He is 10 now. Seeing our pictures from New Year's Eve in 1999 really took me back! There is even a picture of my Aunt Dot who passed away a couple of years ago. It is just amazing to see how much the kids have grown and to remember them as babies.

The thing I want to talk about today though, is the Shutterfly Share Site! I clicked on the "Share" button with the intention of getting a URL that I could share on FB but what I stumbled into was much richer and very user friendly! Shutterfly has given us a simple way to create a dynamic, family-themed website with little effort. The options are easy to navigate and putting the site together only takes as long as it takes you to decide which pictures you want to use!

If that weren't enough, I discovered all the add-ons that are built in which make this a PERFECT option for groups or teams to use for sharing information. There are calendars, rosters, even a snack schedule!! The site can be as open or as private as you make it and members can publish their own information or you can reserve those rights for a site administrator. It really is the perfect solution for groups who don't want to invest in a domain name and hosting just for a season.

So thank you, Shutterfly! Thanks for giving me a new toy to play with today! And thank you for bringing a smile to my face as I looked through my old albums and remembered my babies. So without any further adieu...Welcome to the Wacky World of The Wonderful Wilsons!
