In a few weeks, I’m joining my sister-in-law at the Influence Conference in Indianapolis. I’ve never been to a blogging conference, heck I’ve never been to any real conference outside of work…so I’m excited for this new adventure. The focus of Influence is to “make your online life mean something”. Whether we want to believe it or not, we are influenced daily by the content we absorb in the online community.
I find myself lusting over things way outside my price range, coveting the lives of these girls who have made a career out of their #OOTD with the most expensive pieces GIFTED to them (I mean, come on now – I’d be great at that!), and jealous they can dedicate their whole life to their blog while I work 8-5 and then have to come home and try to put quality content online.
It’s hard to remember at times how fortunate we are, and how unique our life experiences are to appreciate what we have and the life we live each day. I know the Influence Conference will help me connect with other women on my journey, and help me build the skills & acquire the tools I need to make this blog even bigger and even better.
To get ready for this event though, I needed business cards! I have my real work ones, but I needed special “Alicia as a blogger” business cards. So I turned to Minted, my favorite place for all my stationery needs! They are great at customizing their “standard” options to fit your requests.
For example, the back of this business card doesn’t typically have the gold header. When I put my picture on the back it just didn’t look right, so I asked if there was a way to make the back seem like it went better with the front side. In less than 12 hours, I have this customized business card that no one else will have!
I can’t wait to get to the conference to engage with these women, grow my blog & readership, and SHARE THESE CARDS!
Need cards? Make sure you go to Minted to make your own!
