Exposed in a Single Page. My Media Kit.

I am feeling a little naked today. Maybe only wearing a hypothetical pair of socks. Why? Because this marks the first time I will be sharing Bucket List Journey’s stats in my brand spanking new media kit. Ta da.

A media kit is an information sheet or package about a business that is given to potential advertisers or pr representatives.

Annette White Blogger Media KitWhy has is taken so long? Frankly, I was waiting for better…and then bigger…and then even better numbers to impress you with. But, then I realized, that just like fitting into my skinny jeans, that day may never come or at least it is going to require a great deal of sacrifice, like refraining from red wine. Gasp.

Besides, I am proud of how far this little ole’ blog has come and where it is going.

Why do you need a media kit? As my numbers grow so do my requests for press trips, guest posts, advertising and other opportunities. A media kit not only makes it easier to respond to (or initiate) these requests, it also looks professional.

Why only a single page? That’s all I needed. Actually, it was done purposefully so all the information was in a neat and tidy one page package. Simple and to the point. Though it was previously a bit longer before I decided to put the press & media links directly on my blog instead of in the kit.

Media Kit Inspiration
The preface to writing a media kit was hours researching samples. Here are a few that were inspirational to me:

The Bewitchin’ Kitchen – a four-page kit with a creative design

Living the Dream – A longer version of a media kit, packed with stats and photos

Katy Widrick – A sampling of several short media kits

Misadventures with Andi – a cool slide show variety

Adventurous Kate – Not sure if I am more impressed with her stats or her media kit, either way you should check it out.

Amateur Traveler – A nice design with a great column layout.

My Itchy Feet Travel – Jam packed with photos and graphs

…and the Bucket List Journey Media Kit.

    Id be impressed with 41000 pageviews! Well done

  2. Thank you! I like that number too, hoping one day it will be unique visitors ;)

    Thank you for sharing this — I really appreciate it! I’ve only had a couple of advertisements on my blog ever. I haven’t gone in search of them, but I’m open to opportunities if they’re right. With the upcoming honeymoon to Hawaii, I at least want to contact their tourism board to see if there are any ways to work together — but it’s all new to me! I may email you when I get closer to contacting them to learn more about your experiences if that’s alright.

  4. Last time I went to Maui I had no luck with the Maui tourism board because I sent my request too late (they require six weeks in advance). Though, they have been very helpful with my upcoming trip. You absolutely may email me.

    Very nice page. I've been working on mine, too, but haven't used one yet. I feel like my blog is still in its infancy. But I hope it keeps growing, like yours.

  6. With the amount of effort you put into it, it has no choice but to continue to grow ;)

  7. Christy says:

    I think it looks great! I like the ease of one page. Ours is 6 or 7 pages long. 

  8. Thanks. I am not sure if the longer or shorter ones work better, but I like only have to update one page :)

  12. Wow Annette! I had no idea you got so much traffic! WOO! 

  13. No problem, loved your media kit!

  14. Thanks Emma. I took a huge dip last month because my WordPress files got infected with a nasty virus. But, this month is looking good! I would imagine your site will soon be getting as much traffic with how much effort you put into it. I love reading your stories :)
