I know I have been slacking at my duty of posting blogs about running the Inn here at Mavis Manor, it’s due to the fact that I’ve been doing a million other things, which isn’t really a good excuse. I have a few moments of free time so I will recap the last month. Mild weather led to slower times, but that just meant I got to explore some cool new tech stuff to help out with around the manor. Let’s review some of them now.
Skype is an IM and VOIP
Cost: Roughly $36 dollars a year. I did have to buy an air phone (portable phone) and I found one made my GE on Amazon for 100$. With that 36$ you can call anyone in the US/Canada Free, and you get voice mail, and Telephone Number which you get to pick the State and most of the Number. Downfalls: NO 911, caller id, could use some improvement. Major ++ : Price is great, if you’re away from your house, but have internet connection, you can always answer on your computer… Which mean you could be in Michigan, and answer your West Virginia phone number. SWEET!! My Skype Number: 304.460.0136 or xDrfirefly
Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service. Cost: Free, it works with your Facebook, and lots of other social networking sites. It also works with your cell. This is a great way to keep people quickly informed about lots of little things. I haven’t really seen as disadvantage to having twitter. It’s a win/win for me, and my business.
