As a not-quite-newbie but not-wildly-successful blogger, I've been pondering the importance of having business cards. Something to hand to people rather than scrawling your url on a post-it or napkin, as well as eliminating another excuse for neglecting to properly promote my little pet project. I've also been considering employing this criminally underused Nikon of mine to snap some photos of the amazing style I see on these Montreal streets, particularly as the weather improves. I can't tell you how many times I've seen some impeccable creature stroll by and kicked myself for not having my camera. But even if I did, I'd need to approach them, and I think having some sort of calling card would certainly de-creepify and legitimize me to a certain extent.
I recently noticed a few bloggers, like the lovely ladies above, using Moo MiniCards, with a variety of outfit posts on one side and their contact info on the other. These cards are adorable, and probably crazy useful at conferences and meetups when there so many faces and so many names I'm sure it's like playing one big bloggy game of Memory. I wouldn't know though, as I have yet to do the meet-up or conference thing myself (except for PodCamp in 2009, when my blog was just a baby and I spoke to no one). Fingers crossed for the next IFB Conference!
But what if, like me, you're not such a prolific outfit poster? Or if, like me, you feel a little odd handing out cards with photos of yourself on them to virtual strangers? What image goes on your card? Your header? What if, like me, your header is a stolen (yet credited!) image you don't own?
Do you have business cards for your blog? Are you thinking of getting some printed up? Any words of wisdom?
