Texting Your Way Through The Holidays!

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

I realize my own personal texting usage is high - there are times and contacts it simply makes more sense to text, especially if you are with a customer, let's say, and you need to inform another agent of something short and sweet.  Texting is perfect in many cases.  So what if I have a strong cadre of friends and associates who consider my texting to be an, um, addiction. They are just all thumbs, in my opinion, or do not have a QWERTY keyboard!

I have now recevied three Happy Thanksgiving texts  this morning, and am not sure if I find this the best way to wish someone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Doesn't it seem just a bit....impersonal? It means the texter (sender) took the time to craft a simple holiday-specific message, and then blast it to a whole list of textees (recipients).

I like the concept, and am actually, still attempting to figure out HOW to create a group distribution list for texting, but am simultaneously taken aback by my own reaction to it.

How do you feel out there in Thanksgiving-land?

Oh, and I'm getting my group text ready for Happy Black Friday Shopping!

Hi Carol, I call family to wish them happy Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's more personal that way and it shows you care and it's tailored to them.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)

I think it is a great idea to txt your friends. Of course we will call our family members not here, but what a nice surprise to txt your friends out of the blue. Just my opinion but I like it.

Some things are definitely done better by phone or mail or in person.

We all like to get a call, but sometimes it is that little moment of surprise from a friend that is special with a text.  I am getting used to it, and love it!
