So, as this post publishes, I will be packing myself and my family up for the long drive to New York City. We should arrive in the city in time for us to check in to the apartment we rented for the week and for me to head on over to the Hilton for BlogHer ’12.
On the agenda for my first day at BlogHer ’12: Listen/watch President Barack Obama address a room full of female bloggers via video (seriously), attend the Speaker Meet-Up, and pop in to the Evening at the Expo to check out the amazing sponsors. If I’m not too tired from the long day of travel, I might also go to the People’s Party.
I’m tired just thinking about my Thursday. Friday and Saturday are going to be insane. I hope I’m not too frazzled by the time I lead my grammar clinic on Saturday morning. Thank goodness for coffee!
Nathan contacted me and offered to print some magnets to help promote my blog at BlogHer ’12. Of course, I jumped at the chance. I thought it would be fun to have a few different things to hand out to people.
I kept the design simple, using only my web address and tagline. I like simple. And if people are interested in another jennifer, I want them to visit my website.
The magnets came out pretty good. They are a little thin, so when I threw one in my bag, it got slightly curled. I’ll consider this when I take them with me to BlogHer. They look great on my magnetic board and refrigerator, where they are supposed to me.
The only small complaint I have is that the colors of my logo aren’t quite the red and purple I want. I’m probably the only one who will notice the slight difference, so I’m not too worried. I actually think it might be my fault, because I may not have set up the file I sent properly. We went back and forth a few times on email, and Nathan took care of everything for me. I was surprised he got them to me so quickly. I really thought I messed up the order. (Thanks, Nathan!)
Good customer service goes a long way. And, as the name suggests, MagnetsOnTheCheap does have some good prices. I’ll definitely check them out again for more magnets. They also offer yard signs, photos on canvas and banners.
Will you be at BlogHer? Tweet me at @anotherjenb. I’ll even give you a magnet.
