Biz Cards & Media Kits & Blogopolis – Oh My!

Ok so today it is exactly 2 weeks until I fly to Melbourne for Blogopolis! I am super excited! I have been stressing a bit the past few weeks trying to get everything organised both logistics-wise and business-wise. But I finally feel like I can take a breath and enjoy this crazy, fun, scary feeling because…

Yep that's right, double sided...because that's how I roll

I have finally gotten the final proof of my business cards back and have place my order ready to be printed and delivered in time to bring a bunch with me to Blogopolis. The design was my idea, I just needed someone with the time and tools to make it a reality. I feel a little…what’s the word? Guilty? No. Lazy? No. Silly? Maybe…for getting someone else to do them because really, I probably could have done them myself but I thought to get the best result I should get a ‘professional’ to do the job. Whatev’s – they look GREAT! And I can’t wait to start handing them out!!

I can't help but hear Bon Jovi in my head when I look at this

I have also finally put together a Media Kit! I just LOVE how kitsch and ‘matchy’ my whole theme is. From my blog to my business cards and my media kit I feel like I’m really starting to build a ‘brand’ for myself – pretty exciting stuff! Lets hope I actually get to use it haha

I know it's lame I'm so excited for Melbourne...yet it doesn't stop me

And now, I can breathe a sigh of relief and get excited for Melbourne in 2 weeks! I’ve been to Melbourne once before, very briefly when I was a lot younger so really, I’m a Melbourne virgin. I absolutely cannot wait for Blogopolis, the chance to learn so much to hopefully improve my blog and to meet a whole bunch of other bloggers from around Australia. I may have to perfect my business card throwing style, something akin to throwing stars or Xena Warrior Princess.

Flights – Booked. Accommodation – Booked. Airport Parking – Booked. Outfits – half decided. Pee my pants with excitement factor – high. Given I’ll be trying to squeeze blogger networking, Blogopolis and a bunch of Melbourne shopping and sightseeing into one weekend I imagine my time down there will be like something out of the Amazing Race. FUN!

Although, for some strange reason, and I don’t know why – I actually feel a bit nervous. I know, I’m weird. I can’t even explain why I do. It’s not like they’ll be testing us on what we’ve learnt at the end. It’s going to be a hoot! Maybe I am intimidated by the amount and calibre of bloggers attending? But I can’t wait to learn a bunch of stuff from them! I dunno…

Please tell me I’m not the only loser feeling slightly nervous about it?

I've been rolling a similar post around in my head. I'm feeling a little pressure actually. It's all from me, but yeah. Nervous & excited too, of course. I'm wishing it would get here now. :P

With buisness cards like that you are going to knock them out of the water :P They are so awesome! Relax I am sure you will have a great time and most of the other people are probably feeling the same way xx

Hehe thanks Hayley! Yeah, I know I'm going to have an awesome time and if the blog meet is anything to go off, I'm sure people will be really friendly :)

I wish it would hurry up and get here I can't wait! haha

I am so nervous too (meeting so many people who I have never met but have been reading for ages). Worried I'll be sitting in the corner and no-one will want to talk to me!

Looking forward to meeting you there!

I can totally understand how you would have felt, just being relatively new to the their world, people don't know that, but to you, you feel like its printed on your forehead,ha ha,

Was the Melbourne Gig something you were invited to attend or you just had to apply to go to it?

The conference was run by Nuffnang, the company I use for my blog advertising. Anyone could attend, you just had to purchase a ticket.
