Helping Bloggers Get Noticed

When I first got into blogging I decided to design and give out business cards. When I would tell people I was a blogger or ran a blog, people would look at me as if Old Scratch had said he killed a deer. (A very blank and unbelieving stare). So I had the cards printed up. At first I was shy about giving them out but soon learned that if you tell someone about your blog they might visit, but if they have your card they will almost assuredly come visit. Do Not Be Shy In Handing Your Cards Out!
Marian sent me an example of her new cards and mine is reprinted underneath.

Handing out business cards is a great way to promote your blog.

Hey- I'm not even on your blogroll :)

Oh, business cards are great - I design lots of them every year and even know where to get them printed cheap and looking good. :)

I do enjoy your blog - it is one that I visit fairly regularly. Thanks for stopping by my place.

The cards look great! I've never really thought about promoting my blog with cards like that.

Hell Rex I just put up an image that you could have used, ask next time before you print those cards.
Cheers

Thanks Rex for the post of my new card. It's a great way to confirm the works of your labor. Good advice you gave me!

This is a great idea, I've always thought about doing this, but never sure that it might work. Thanks for the information.

Great looking cards. I made my cards about a year ago and recently I added small flyers to my promotional material. The flyers are laid out at hunting sports stores around here and the cards are handed out at hunting, fishing and gun shows to visitors and exhibitors alike. It all helps to get noticed and spread the word.

Howdy all!
I made cards to hand out when I'm doing anything that requires me to go outdoors...

Of course I forget them about half the time. But I do have my blog addy memorized.
