Let’s Talk Media Kits

Having a media kit is essential for any size blogger. Learn how I made mine, what to include, and where to find design inspo!

This isn’t my usual fitness or college type of content, but I do post about blogging tips & tricks on here from time to time because after all, this blog takes up 85% of my free time. That other 15% is spent with my cat or watching YouTube videos, but let’s not talk about that.

A few weeks ago I posted a boomerang on my Insta story of my media kit that I had just revamped and finished. Surprisingly, I had several people reply to that story and ask about the media kit, how I made it, what to include, and all that jazzy stuff. Well I’m here to tell y’all all about how I made my media kit, what I included, my inspiration, and what my prior media kits looked like as well.

So many of those Pinterest articles tell beginners to not worry about stats. Well when you’re a beginner, stats are all you have! I know for the first six months, I would religiously check my stats 20+ times a day. That is perfectly fine!
