While formal wear in the summers mean quickly pairing a top with trousers, looking glam while also beating the chills can sometimes be tricky. While dropping temperatures bring with them several style options, they may not be your best bet in a professional…
I do, but they were sent to me by FoodBuzz.com when I became a featured publisher. I love them! They have my name and URL. They're mini cards (half the size of regular business cards) and were printed by Moo. If I were getting them printed for myself, I would include a little more info (like twitter and etsy).
I am a featured publisher on Foodbuzz.com and they actually mail everyone featured publisher a box of business cards for free. I had no idea what to use them for until reading that they are for expos and meetings...since I don't go to those I guess it pretty useless but for those who do its great..they are super professional looking. They have my name, web addy, and the name of my blog.
I have a blog business card, as well as pens and rack cards. For myself (just for fun) I have a drink bottle, coffee mug, and tote bag. I am just starting out blogging and have a few ideas on where I wish to go with it all but am taking it one step at a time.
Like others have said, this is very important! We have special Blog Advertising Packages for our clients who wants to make sure their blog gives a professional impression. And if you only need the card done we fix that too, just send us an email :)
Absolutely--I have cards for both my "corporate" gigs and my personal blogs; On my own blogs, I've used founder, editor-in-chief; on the cards I've had for other companies, I've used blogger-in-chief, managing editor, content strategist--there are really many, many options. I'm fairly good at design, so I usually design my own cards and use Avery templates to print them out--it's super easy. Then, if I need larger quantities, I can always go to a Kinko's, Staples or even UPS stores sometimes and print the file there. The main thing is to ensure people can find you easily online--one thing to check out is the chi.mp site--you can place all your online activity in one place, like a dashboard, and get your own domain name--for free. Then, you can direct your biz card traffic there as well...just a thought!
chi.mp is a great utility if you have multiple accounts with online social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. With chi.mp you can look at a snapshot of all of those accounts at once... cutting down on the time you have to spend on each account individually. I would recommend chi.mp for anyone who is very active in social media. Otherwise... you probably don't need it yet. It is FREE... so you may want to head over there and at least secure the screen name you'd like to have!
