Article from A Life of Style

Great tip from my blogger BFF, at A Life of Style

A Life of Style: Personal Cards

A few weeks ago my friend met a guy while she was in Barnes & Noble. They had a really nice chat and when it came time to exchange phone numbers, she ripped a half sheet of paper from her notebook to write her name and number on. She was excited to get to know him better and was sure he would call within a day or two.

Well he didn't make the first call, she had to call him. He informed her that he was glad she called because he misplaced the paper her number was written on. I told her if she had some cute personal cards like yours truly...he probably wouldn't have lost her number.

Do you know how much random paper you can collect in a day???? Do yourself a favor and make some eye catching personal cards. I only use my business cards for professional events. I never feel comfortable giving a potential suitor my work information right in the beginning. This is where a personal card comes in handy.

I just have mine printed with my first name, mobile number, and email address. If the guy turns out to be a dud or worse (a stalker), I can easily block his email address and phone number.

In my Lifetime

My parents remember where they were when Kennedy was assassinated.

They and others remember what they were doing when they heard the news that Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated.

For the first time in my life, I have one of those memories. In a few years, I will be able to tell my children and (many, many years later) grandchildren where I was when the first black man received the Democratic nomination for the President of the United States!!!!!

Granted, it's not the most romantic of locations. I'm sitting at my desk at work eating chilli-cheese fries and drinking Sunkist....LOL. But the moment is mine and it's still powerful.

I'm emotional, proud, nervous, excited, expectant and about a thousand other emotions over the next few months and the future of our country. It's an exciting time to be an American and an even more exciting time to be an African American!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
