Yoni Greenbaum at “editor on the verge” blogged about the concept of keeping in touch with sources and being accessible as a writer to the public. He has a twist on business cards that includes other ways to access the writer such as including your links to MySpace or FaceBook on your actual business card.
I don’t know that I like that idea. Personally, on MySpace, I have pictures of me in a Dallas Cowboys jersey with a giant Tony Romo as my background. My Playlist includes Three Days Grace and Seether. I don’t think this is really how I want to project myself professionally on my business card. I suppose others may have more professional MySpace pages and I could create one, but it seems like one more thing that I have to deal with and I’m not all about that. My email and my phone number seem enough to me.
Am I wrong or just outdated?
