Send Some Christmas Cheer!

The holidays are never a lot of fun for me but particularly this year. So, I want to do something a little different to help me (and hopefully others!) get through the Christmas Funk.


I was thinking that there are so many great YML listeners I've never met, never seen, never heard. I wanted to remedy that and the simplest way is for you to send me a holiday video greeting!

It's easy - Make sure you've got some good lighting, grab your iPhone, turn on your camera app, flip the camera around to front facing and hit record. Then, do a mental "...3....2...1...." countdown and just say.....something!

Start with, "Hi! My name is....and I live in....." and then go with....

"Merry Christmas Shawn and all the Your Mac Life listeners!"

"Happy Holidays from the to Your Mac Life!"

"I want to wish a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to.....(include anyone you'd like!)..."

You get the idea. Make it short and simple. Include the kids. Include your dog. Include your co-workers. MAKE IT FUN. Then, email the video to me at ChristmasCheer [at] yml [dot] me and I'll include it in a montage to be played on next week's YML Christmas show. I'll also include the video here and post it to Facebook and Twitter.

I think it would be great to get a bunch of these so send the idea to anyone you'd like and let's start a new YML tradition for the holidays.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing your holiday video greetings!
