About a month ago, I finally printed some cards that matched my new branding. I'm more than a blogger now, I'm also do web design, graphics and, occasionally, some marketing consulting. A few business card how-to's all agreed, though, that your business cards should always have the logo that appears on your blog - even if it's your blog name in a certain font. Consistency is key so make sure the color scheme also lines up.
As I looked online for inspiration, I was surprised that there weren't that many examples of original lifestyle blogger cards. I found a lot - especially among fashion bloggers - using the mini-cards from MOO printing.
I liked how the cards below addressed certain issues like "What do you do when your run more than one blog?" and "Can you fit blog, social media and contact info on one side?" Also, some people have started to write mini-"Who I Am"-paragraphs which I learned was a big no-no. But with online authenticity and emerging media, business cards aren't what they use to be - check out the ones with the QR code. And what if your blog isn't really a a business? Keep it simple on both sides.
