Guys! I am SO excited (and honestly, a little scared)- next weekend I will be attending my first ever blogging conference! I have always let you guys in on my goal to grow this blog, and I really believe taking classes and networking will be a BIG step for me. Eep! I will be attending the Build Your Blog Conference and it goes from the 19-20th in Salt Lake City. I decided last minute (like a few days ago) to go- I might have had to have some pep talks to gather my courage, but I’ll be there! If any of my blogger friends want to go, there are still tickets left! And you don’t have to be local because they will put all of the classes online on video. So here’s the link to register for the Build your Blog Conference if you are interested.

Since I will be networking, I figured I needed some business cards. My little sister Holly was sweet enough to design them for me. Aren’t they pretty?! I really wanted something that would reflect my style and she totally nailed it!
I was inspired by this event advertisement I saw on Facebook- I love the botanical floral used in a modern way. If you are wanting to work with a graphic designer to design business cards, or well anything, here are some tips-
- give them inspiration
- be SUPER clear on what you want. If you don’t know what you want, how are they supposed to make it for them?
- Give them all of your wording so they have what they need to work with all at once
- Show them colors, fonts, and concrete examples so you are both on the same page and you get what you want
- Don’t be afraid to ask for changes! It mostly won’t be perfect on the first round, but it is worth it to ask for what you want
If you don’t know a graphic designer or want to go a simpler route Etsy is actually a great spot for buying business cards! I love both of these and they are super affordable:
Available on Etsy for $27.50 for 50 cards
Available on Etsy for $7.50 (you would find your own printer)
Here is what every blogger business card should have:
- Your name
- The name of your blog
- Your blog website
- Your email
- Your social media handles
I’ve also seen these suggestions, but I choose to not do them so that my card was nice and clean:
- A picture of you
- Your location
- Your phone number
- A picture of one of your favorite/most popular projects
