I like Theodore Gray's solution:

Showstatus[status_] :=

Just use ShowStatus instead of Print, and whatever you print will show up in
the status line. Note that the status line is present in the default style
sheet. If you happen to use a style sheet which doesn't have a status line,
you can fix this by going to the option inspector, and setting the
WindowElements option to include "StatusArea".
