Using Instant Messaging During The Holidays

Instant messaging is a great online communication tool because it allows businesses and individuals to talk online to their colleagues, friends, and family members anywhere in the world where there is internet access.

Because things can get pretty hectic during the holidays, using an instant messenger for communication is a great way to stay in touch with employees that are traveling for the holidays. Having a more flexible, work from home schedule during the holidays can allow employees to get work done while also spending time with their family. Instant messaging programs like Brosix make staying in touch so much easier.

Instant messaging programs can also be great for families who aren't all together during the holidays. Some instant messaging programs have Video Chat, which can allow families to see one another one the holidays themselves, which can have a lot of meaning to families who are located far apart from one another.

Finding a Print Vendor

Sometimes it's hard to find a high-quality print vendor. Since I live in the Kansas City area, I like to support businesses that are in the Kansas City Metro or the surrounding area. I found a printing vendor online called PrintNinja and they seem like a great option, especially since they are based in Columbia, MO, which is halfway between Kansas City and St. Louis.

Some of the top options that PrintNinja offers are catalogs, brochures, flyers, booklets, envelopes, and magazines. You can get an instant quote online and they even offer free print samples! They guarantee customers a savings of 30-70% on regular printing prices and their website is simple and easy to use. Go check them out!

Advertising on Your Blog with Linknami

Sometimes after a blogger has had a chance to really see the commitment it takes to keep up with a blog, they begin to wonder if they can make money off of it.

In many cases, depending on traffic and the blog content, blog advertising is something that is a great way to earn income with blogging.

Linknami connects bloggers and advertisers in an easy to use program that helps bloggers find advertisers, without having to do it on their own. Besides blog advertising, bloggers can also find advertisers to sponsor blog posts or get compensated for tweeting or posting on Facebook about products.

Creating eCards for the Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is next week already, and because I especially enjoy this "Turkey Day", I enjoy sending Thanksgiving ecards to my friends and family that I won't be able to see next Thursday. There are several different resources available online to find pretty and heartwarming ecards, including sites like www.ojolie.com.

This website is so many well-designed and has so many clever e-cards! I'm sure almost anyone can find something that they like and will be perfect for the recipient they have in mind. Besides pretty illustrations, the site also has beautiful animations to make the e-card come to life. I enjoyed browsing the site and will definitely revisit it for other holidays and birthdays!
