I decided to attend the Maker Faire to promote our DIY blog HowToEngineering.com

We have many items we made on the website that we had around the house, so we were able to bring them and show people! There were over 600 people there in the few hours we were there. This is a lot of free promotion for my company, I handed out almost all my fliers and over half my business cards!
