  1. Thanks for posting this helpful article, Chris. I recently ordered business cards from Vistaprint (who are mentioned in the original post). These were of good quality and I have given out a fair number of them containing my name, “K Morris poet”, Twitter handle, mobile and (business) email. I have had several website visits as a consequence of distributing business cards and, I believe several subscribers to my blog. Perhaps its the handsome figure shown on the card which encourages people to visit my site (Trigger is indeed a handsome lab/retriever)! and as for the other personage featured, the least said about him the better! I used to give away quite a few print books, however this became rather expensive so I now limit this to gifts to family, close friends, libraries and the occasional giveaway on my website. The idea of bookmarks is, I think a good one. Best, Kevin
