Thought about getting business cards for your blog? It’s a great way to network, promote your website off-line, and get a few (possibly many) more readers. Having a business card at BlogWorld was invaluable, and I’ve received a lot of follow-up from folks who I otherwise wouldn’t have heard from again. Even though the cards were just quickly thrown together and didn’t look too great, they had my info on it, and that’s the important part.
Well now, ooprint.com came up with a great idea to design business cards specifically for bloggers – tag cloud and all: Continue reading Get Your Networking On with Blogger Business Cards
Prija over at Blogging the Movie started a new link train, but with one twist: you must have “nofollow” tags on each link. Interesting idea, hopefully it will show us all some benefit. Plus it’s a contest, so there’s nothing to lose! Here’s how it works:
***** Start Here ******
1. Free 4-Hour Workweek Book.
2. A chance to have a permanent link on front page of Blogging The Movie dot com.
3. Sign the Records Book as it travels to 10 different winners.
This contest is sponsored by BloggingTheMovie – A featured documentary about Bloggers. This contest contains no-follow links. So it is Google friendly and by creating an original introduction you wonâ€™t be dinged for duplicate content. This is an ongoing marketing campaign. There will be 10 winners at which each winner will be able to host their own contest which will be sponsored by Blogging The Movie. 1st Winner: Susan Suarez | 2nd Winner: Investing Adventures | 3rd Winner: Can be you!
1. Write an original short snippet introduction to avoid duplicate content.
2. Just copy the section between the start and end.
3. Add your 3 favorite blogs with rel=â€nofollowâ€ in between the link on the code page. i.e. <a href=”http://www.url.com/” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank” title=”url name”>URL.com</a>. This is extremely important to ensure that Google wonâ€™t ding us. Make sure you contact the bloggers and insist they participate so they can keep this going.
4. Email your URL of your blog post to [email protected]

Yeah, this took me a while to post, sorry about that. I’ve been so busy since BlogWorld a couple weeks ago, I’ve barely had the chance to sleep.
BlogWorld was awesome, as was Las Vegas in general. I had a great time, and I hope everyone else who attended did as well. I got to meet some really cool people there who I’ve talked to online quite a bit but never actually met in person.
Here are some quick reviews from some of the folks I was proud to hang out with (in no particular order):
Nate Whitehill (and the guys from UBD)
Vinay and Anthony
Prija (from Blogging the Movie)
Everyone I met there was so cool, even more than I expected. John Chow took us out for a much appreciated dinner at Benihanna Japanese Steakhouse (photos to come,) I got a chance to meet the great Zac Johnson, who I didn’t expect to be there, that was a surprise. What a cool guy! I met Vinay and Anthony from CarZi and MadWhips, who I also didn’t expect to be there. The guys from Unique Blog Designs, who are currently working on a theme for me had a booth there, and I think they got a ton of business from walk-ups and word-of-mouth.
Anyway I’m going to get my photos situated and put up another post here soon, so stay tuned!
Well, I got in to Vegas last night, walked around on the strip for a while, it’s definitely an interesting place :) I came in to BlogWorld this morning (a bit late) and Matt Mullenweg was being interviewed. In case you didn’t know, Matt is the original developer of WordPress, and his company Automattic has created Akismet (the blog spam filter,) and some other great products.
Matt had some interesting things to say, and he’s a very smart fella. I’ll post more about it later, they just opened up the vendor floor…
I’m packing my bags for BlogWorld Expo, taking off tonight and will be there first thing in the morning. I’m really looking forward to meeting some fellow bloggers and friends like Nate, Danielle, John, Jeremy, Gary, my friends from Copeac, and so many more! I’ll update the blog when I can, I’m sure they will have wi-fi :)
Sadly, I won’t have much time to do much else while I’m there, since I’ll be going to PostieCon too, and my flight leaves at 6AM Sunday morning.

I can cover all the things mentioned above and more; starting a blog, monetization help, installation of blogging software, themes and plugins, modification of themes and plugins, design, and probably more I haven’t though of.
