View Full Version : Questions about writers' conference and business cards...

01-15-2009, 12:44 PM
Next month I'm going to be attending my first writers' conference and I'm trying to be as prepared as possible. I'm printed some business cards (the minicards from Moo.com) and am wondering what information I should include on them.
In particular I'm wondering if I should include the url to my personal blog? I don't have a website and the blog, though highly personal, does highlight my writing. & the question is... to include or not include?

I'd include your name, any and all contact info, and what you write.

Blog info is good - email address good, phone # good too. Make sure that this is information you don't plan on having change any time soon.

Case in point - I had 300 business cards printed up for conference last year with my book title and my release date. Release date got changed. Book title got changed. I now have about 200+ business cards that I can't use. ;)

I always like to see all the contact info, including the URL to a blog or website. We collect so many cards that it's easy to forget who you are. I usually try to put the name of the manuscript on the back so it jogs my memory after I return home.
