I am so excited to be heading to BlogHer ’14
– my very first ever blogging conference. I have only been blogging for seven months, so in the world of blogging I am definitely a newbie. I have been given a list of items that I need to show up with – two of which are business cards and an elevator pitch.I will say designing my own business cards was a challenge – it took the course of hours spent over days – over a week in total to finally figure this one out and to get a design that I was mostly happy with. I say mostly because it came down to the fact that I was running out of time, so I just had to go with what I had. I needed to quit playing around with the many different options and place my order.I designed both the front and back using picmonkey.com, and then I used moo.com to print them on recycled paper. I like the way they turned out – If I could, I’d still be tweaking them a bit – but I can’t. Gotta’ let that one go. Let’s just say that I have zero training in graphic arts! I used free clip art for the social media icons, and I am including them below for your use, if you should ever need them.
Now I am busy working on my elevator pitch. When people ask what is my blog about, I need a 30 – 90 second well thought-out response that covers it all.
This is turning out to be as tricky for me as creating my business cards.I am a lifestyle blogger that writes about….I have some ideas, but if you are a reader of my blog, I’d love
to get your feedback! How would you finish that statement? What is your impression and take-away from reading my blog?
I would love to hear from you! I need to start rehearsing my pitch soon. With only 30 – 90 seconds there is no time for stumbling on my words. I am heading to BlogHer ’14 later this week, and I cannot wait to learn much more about this craft and the business that I am developing.
Thank you in advance for your help 🙂
