Fun Ways To Promote Your Blog

personalised phone cases

We all want to promote our blogs. We work hard on them day in, day out and the promotion comes hand in hand with that. So we sit and we tweet and we schedule posts when we’re not going to be around to do them manually. We link up to linkys and we post links to Facebook and we ask people to share, share share! But what else can we do to get our name’s out there?

I’ve had some fun with this post. Let me give you a few ideas…

Business Cards

design your own business cards for bloggers

Sounds like an obvious suggestion but how many of us have them? I don’t, but I have some on the way. They’re great fun to design and there are so many sites that you can use these days. For these ones I used Vista Print. I can’t wait for them to arrive.



I can’t help but think this looks rather swanky and when I was ordering my business cards I accidentally added this to the basket. I think it will look and feel quite impressive for my morning brews at work.

Phone Case

Now if I’m entirely honest this wonderful little item is the inspiration behind this post. When I was approached by the brand Mr Nutcase asking if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products, I grabbed this opportunity. I’m a big fan of phone cases but in all honesty, cases with photos on just aren’t my thing, so I gave it some thought and decided it would be really cool to get my logo out there! So I set to to design the template using my logos and website address. Uploaded it and placed the order. It was really simple! It took no time at all and delivery was super quick! The case itself is a really nice soft to touch matte plastic. I love the feel of it. It’s sturdy too which is obviously really important when it comes to protecting your precious phone. It’s eye catching. It’s unique and it could well get people asking ‘what on earth is that all about?!’ Cue me telling them and handing them a business card! Result! If you fancy pinching my idea – I won’t mind. Have a look at the Mr Nutcase website – cases start at £14.95! Cheaper than some advertisers!

There are literally so many things out there these days that you can personalise and make your own. During my research I came up with even more!

I for one am really keen on the hoody and the bag! I still use a rucksack type bag when I’m out with the little one and what better way to advertise your blog name by having it subtly placed on the front of your bag?! As for the hoody – we all wear them with logos on anyway – what better than it to be your own?!

Note to self – must not wear and use all of the above at the same time. You could look a little daft!

What do you think? Good idea or just plain silly?


*I was gifted this phone case in return for an honest review of the product
**Photo credits for items other than the phone case go to Vista Print
