New Year, New Moo?
So, I’m a little slow when it comes to the blogosphere (I freely admit that I’m old school in that I still read stuff like books and email). That aside, a friend emails me today a blog about the Moo card. If you, like me, ask: what the heck is a moo card? It appears it goes a little something like this: there is a company that makes cards, smaller than business cards, with a cool pic on one side of the slimmer card, and blog/contact info of the individual on the other side. You can order 50 different cool pics for the backs of the cards, and now apparently, people are trading them (much like baseball cards or stickers like when I was a kid).
Interesting thing about this is that it has a kind of built in feature that business cards do not normally possess: people actually want to keep the moo cards because of the cool picks. Also, it marries Flickr photos so you can even put your own pics on the back side of your moo cards.
Although I’m not cool enough to have ordered moo cards, I do have a new business card with my basic contact info on the front side of the card, and my slashes on the back side, along with websites, and social media contact info. I’m just missing the cool pics. Darn.
Bottom line: I’m amending my previous blog on 5 Things every college student should know to have him or her have a B card OR a moo card. They might actually keep the moos for awhile.
