BlogHer '07 "Know Before You Go" - It's In The Cards

And as part of the so-excited-can't-wait process leading up to the event, every week I'll be posting a "Know Before You Go" update.

Up first: the business of business cards.

You probably didn't need another at-work time-sink (ahem), but creating your own business cards online is fun, fast, easy, and relatively inexpensive. It's also a great way to promote yourself and your blog when you're too busy mingling with hundreds of other bloggers to write everyone's name and URL down.

Last year, I saw lots of amazing and artistic cards -- and some with nothing more than a blog's title -- and wished I'd thought to make my own. (Turns out "She Just Walks Around With It" is not so easy to remember!)

A quick search on Google for "customized business cards" yields a ton of results, so you can take your pick. I've used and been happy with their results, but I'm sure our BlogHers have additional suggestions.

If you want to get really creative and use something fancy like notecards, you could always poke around, too (what was that about time-sinks?).

Of course, cards are in no way necessary, but they DO make great conversation starters. Plus I'll admit to getting a certain thrill seeing my blog's name in print.

What are your thoughts? And please, if you have any examples you'd like to share -- feel free!
