Blog Business Cards – Must Have for Bloggers on The Go

Blog Business Cards – Must Have for Bloggers on The GoBlog Business Cards - Must Have for Bloggers on The GoWell this small card can go a long way and for me and it is the number one must have thing for blogging.

Lately bloggers are gaining more and more respect as a media outlet, more and more companies are starting to work with us and value our opinions, and more and more money is being poured into supporting bloggers.

However like with every other business, first impressions count the most… you talk to someone who sells or offers something of interest to you, you would like to approach them to work with you… what better way of making that first impression than by passing over your blog business card?

I remember a blogger meet-up I attended a few months back when I already had Bark Time on a self-hosted domain but I still carried with me my old .worldpress business cards… every time I passed one over I had to explain… “Well, I have moved to a self-hosted site but the old domain will re-direct”… it occurred to me that this really wasn’t ideal. It was the time to get some new cards made.

Luckily StressFreePrint.co.uk once again agreed to create and print some business cards for Bark Time. After my first encounter with them in the summer of last year I was totally over the moon with their service (you can read my previous review here) and I really wanted to know if their outstanding service would be the same the second time around… well… it wasn’t… it was tenfold better!

The first time, I wanted some business cards but I knew in my heart that they aren’t forever… I knew that a domain change would be coming in the near future and that would demand a new card at some point in the future. Now this future is here and this time I knew that whatever we created would stay with me for a long time.

Blog Business Cards from StressFreePrint.co.ukStressFreePrint.co.uk works with you. You give them the outline brief and they create a design based on it. Well, I gave them the brief but once the first draft came back to me I hated it, despite being done exactly to my specification. I worked with Nilesh from their Artwork Team for days; we made countless changes until the card was perfect (in my opinion of course). There were moments when I was ready to quit and simply accept what we already had but I wasn’t letting myself off the hook until I was 100% satisfy with my new business card.

My New Blog Business Cards from StressFreePrint.co.ukThey arrived securely packed in hard plastic boxes, once I took one into my hand my senses were met with a smooth velvet like paper… pure pleasure to touch and hold. At this moment I knew that my cards were spot on, I really couldn’t ask for anymore; I had something which would help me with those ever so important first impressions.

If you need new business cards for your blog or any other business come to that, then StressFreePrint.co.uk is the way to go. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Just so you know I have not forget about you guys. For over a week now I have had a huge problem with getting into my own blog, as well as other WP blogs.

It is very annoying.

Writing a new post becomes an impossible task, comments on other peoples blogs are going into the spam box, and that is if I can comment at all, and posts that I liked get unliked… what a nightmare…

I am not the only one suffering from this problem. So far not a lot has been done to fix it. WP is blaming the internet providers who in turn blame WP, some people have even suggested it is a virus and so we go back and forth…

I really hope this will get resolve soon and that I will be able to resume my normal blogging schedule.

Until then take care of yourselves and keep your fingers crossed.

One month blogiversary in numbers

Today I celebrate my one month blogiversary 🙂 (any excuse for a small party in my head)

I have enjoyed this time a lot and when I couldn’t write, due to special friends visiting, I was missing it. I am looking forward to the future and all the stories it will bring to my readers.

I learnt quiet a lot during this month especially that I would love to share much more than I can, due to time restrictions. I am finding myself picking very carefully what to add or write as I cannot do it all in one go. I have a stack of lovely recipes and stories to share with you but lacking time to do it all…

I am quite unsure how my number should look like, so maybe you can give me so idea on how I am doing.
