#1: I researched what I needed in a media kit and decided I needed to include:
- Information about myself
- Description of my blog
- Review, giveaway and sponsorship information
- Companies/brand relationships
- Blog Statistics
- A fun profile photo
- Contact information
- Special project information
#2: I created a PicMonkey collage placing my profile photo where I wanted it, so I could then use the rest of the blank template to edit. (If you have a blog logo or header, you should place that in your collage as well before going to the edit screen.) I used the free "Biggie Smalls" layout and changed the size of the collage to 1800x2400.
#3: Under the edit PicMonkey function I then added overlays and text to create a fun and simple layout for my media kit. I used banner overlays and Chelsea Market and Shadows Into Light Two fonts. Use whatever layouts and text associate well with your blog.
#4: I saved the PicMonkey collage as a jpeg and uploaded it to a tab on my blog! Then under the PicMonkey image, I made sure to link my contact information and my Comments for a Cause information (because I also decided I wanted to share about special projects I'm working on). Now whenever a company contacts me I can direct them to my media kit on my blog and hopefully it'll help them know and understand me and my blog.
Here is a look at what I created for free through PicMonkey:
If you have a blog I recommend you take your next "quiet time", or a couple free hours, and create a media kit for your blog. It is a great resource for companies that want to collaborate with you. If you have a blog, do you have a media kit for your blog? What do you recommend including? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
