My new business cards (and a serious fail at vlogging)

Well, I was super stoked about receiving my new business cards in the mail yesterday that I really want to try and attempt another vlog. But about 5 seconds into recording, it turned into a tragic mess and then it just got worse from that point on. I was originally not going to post it, but just like in real life, you can’t take back a first impression. Or in my case, a second impression. So, in an effort to stay true to my pathetic attempt at getting better on camera, here is my ridiculously embarrassing, horrifyingly awkward video (please don’t stop reading my blog) …

And to make up for it, here are a few pictures of my cards:

To show you the comparison between the thick 24 pt. cardstock that I used for these business cards, compared to the 10 or 12 pt. cardstock that is used for my full-time job business cards, I’ve stacked up 8 of each beside each other. The difference is quite remarkable!

If you like these business cards, you can hire me to design some for you (just kidding, kind of). But I am also giving away 2 prizes of 1000 business cards each from Jukeboxprint.com. The contest won’t run until the beginning of October, but this is just a heads up for anyone who is thinking about ordering cards in the near future! :)

My first attempt at vlogging

This is my very first attempt at vlogging, so please be kind. :)

I took just one take, and didn’t even read from a script! Although, maybe I should have.
