Meet Q - My QR Code
I must first admit, though, that I have never actually scanned one myself! Eep! It's not that I don't want to - I just never think to. I know how to bring up my own on my BBM so someone can add me, but I've never added anyone from one. I think they are brilliant for real estate agents...put a qr code on an ad or a sign and instantly prospective buyers can see more detail about the house they are standing in front of.
So, today, I decided to get a QR Code for my blog. I've been pondering ordering "business cards" (blogger cards?) and I thought it might be a nice addition to put on them. I am going to have several events in the coming months where I might like to hand out the information and this seems like a quick and inexpensive way to do it.
First, I needed that code. A quick Google later, I found Smarty Tags - a website that would create my code and allow me to track it (for free)
Meet Q (I know - I'm such an original namer) - the official QR Code for my blog
and, yes, I did scan it as my first QR code scan - because I was curious what it would do.
Too freaking cool. Took me right to my blog (it did ask for my location but that wasn't mandatory). Then, when I checked it online it told me where the code had been scanned. I know this isn't new to those of you who already use QR codes all the time - but it was pretty cool for me as a first timer.
Now, it's your turn :D
