A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All

‘Tis the season to order business cards…

I’m talking about business cards over In The Powder Room today.

Business Cards 101 by The Bearded Iris In The Powder Room

It’s a good read, and I share some links for free and discounted business cards of your own, so check it out!

If you do decide to design and order your business cards through Moo.com, where I get mine, you can help me earn some free goodies by going there through my refer-a-friend link. Thank you kindly! But no big whoop. This is not a sponsored post. I just really like their products and wanted to share.

And yes, that really is how I organize and store the hundreds of business cards I’ve amassed over the years as a blogger—one ring per conference. It works. Don’t ask me where my kids’ immunization records are right now, but when it comes to the insignificant minutia of my life, I’m an organizational ninja. Sad but true.

Okay, go read. Or at least ogle my custom-made business card holder.

Kiss kiss,

    Hey Leslie,

    I have a quick question seeing you’ve seen/kept 1000’s of different business cards during your conferences. I have two different blogs. One is my personal writing blog. One is my podcast/blog that I co-host with my husband. I was thinking of putting my info/pic for ATM on one side and my info/pic for the podcast on the other side. Have you seen something like this before? Should I just do two separate cards? I’m taking any and all suggestions. 🙂

    Such a great post. Thank you for posting!

      Hi Mel! That is a GREAT question. I’ve been pondering the same thing because of my job at In The Powder Room. Last year I was handing out three different cards and it was a pain. So what I think I’ll do this year is ONE card with my face on it (because that helps people remember me), and put both of my blogs on the back (The Bearded Iris and In The Powder Room). That’s where having an About.Me account really comes in handy. It’s one URL that contains all your other links and things. I put a link to mine over at my post In The Powder Room today. Check it out and see if that would work for you. 🙂
