A few months ago, I went to Nashville for a little conference called Blissdom. And if you’ll recall, one of my biggest regrets from that weekend was my lack of business cards. Because I was the only one who didn’t have them! (Or at least it felt that way.)
So I vowed to get around to printing some cards before attending another conference. And then promptly forgot about it.
Until I posted on Facebook that I was going to another conference this weekend, and a couple friends were kind enough to say, “Hello! Do you have business cards this time?”
Oh yeah. Those things.
So, I’ve got to rustle up some bloggy business cards, and fast. Because I’m going to Chicks Who Click on Saturday.
It turns out that there’s a real-live blogging conference here in Kansas City. And thanks to the wild world of Twitter, I’m going free of charge! Thanks, @zenaweist and @Deetells!
This one-day conference is going to teach me how to be organized, how to customize my “social toolbox,” how to find that line between transparency and privacy, and oh, so much more.
So, my question for you is this: If you could attend one conference – blogging or otherwise – what would it be? And why?
i’d love to see what you come up with for your business cards.
i’m hoping to attend catalyst in october (in atlanta)…
i cringe at the word conference! hope you have fun!
Business cards are fun! We don’t have them yet at church, so I’m business card-less too. I hope we get them soon. I’m going to go to a conference in KC (on Black Bob Road) called Ministry 2.0 about using social tools for the church. But I really hope to go to the FUUMWA Worship!2009 in Holland, Michigan in August and the ICDA convention in Mason City in July.
You can always look up Vistaprint. They usually have some free ones you can get. They won’t be ideal, but you can use them in a pinch in the future.
I enjoy business cards (actually all things office/school supply) I too reccommend Vista print. I use them for my business. I’d love to go to a blogging/writing conference. I’d like to do some free lance writing…as for my blog, as you know I’m in the process of “re-designing’-or rather “re-defining” it. Sounds great. I was interested in hearing more of what you learned at blissdom…but maybe you’ll share on this conference.
Comic Con or a Star Trek convention. I bet you’d see some interesting folks there… ;)
I’ve always wanted to attend a Beth Moore conference.
HipMama – I promise if I learn something that I can put into words, I will share it here. Blissdom was so overwhelming – I’m still not sure what I learned! (Not that it wasn’t a great conference. It WAS. It was just a lot to take in.) :)
Oh, Chelley. You’re so right!
Me, too, Busy!! I’ve been to Women of Faith and a Joyce Meyer, but I’d really love to see Beth Moore.
I’d probably choose Blissdom just because of the good memories I have from that event. I actually HATE conferences in general though. That was about as good as it gets for me. :)
You must share what you learn at this conference….it sounds like fun! And if I could pick one conference, it would be BlogHer….just because I would get the chance to bump into so many “pro” bloggers that I follow.
Attending a blogging conference is also one of the items on my 101 Goals in 1001 Days list.
I’m going to CWC too! And I have my business cards all ready to go in my purse! Look for me, and we’ll exchange bloggy cards! :)
I’d love to see your business cards also.
Oh, and I’d like to attend a blog conference to meet bloggy friends. And, of course, do me some learnin’.
Went to SOBCon at the beginning of May. Not ideal, but I met some awesome people.
i like chelley’s idea for the people-watching, but i think i would go to a conference on tolkien and religion. cuz i’m me. :)
