Post the Last!!

This has been an excellent blogging challenge for sure.

For my last post, I really really wanted to experiment with Google Voice. Did you know that you can get a Google phone number that will ring to your home number, as well as your celly?

Also, on Google Voice you can record your calls, among other things. I thought it would be awesome if Lee called in and we podcasted together across the miles. However, things are busy and we couldn't make that work. As a back-up, I asked Rachel to call me at some point, any point, during the day. But, that didn't work out for some reason. Probably related to Mario and his video games.

So then, as a last ditch effort, I made Dan go in another room and call my Google Voice number. He did, thank the lord. And here's the call I recorded. The possibilities for this thing are endless, I feel. In addition to embedding it like this, you can also download an MP3 file and edit it in a podcasting software like Garage Band. You can also do conference calls and send text messages to your email. And it's free! I'll be using this in 2011 for sure.

Happy New Year, Everyone! This next year will be a fun adventure.

Congratulations to all the December 2010 blogging challenge participants. You were all great, and I, as a lurker learned a lot. Someday I will try to use what I learned.
Happy New Year to all!!!!

I LOVED THIS! I wish I had taken the time to call instead of pronto, but pronto was good too.

KC, you sound like a person with a radio show! Exactly LIKE that kind of radio show person. WOOHOO! WE did it!
