I am a very busy gal. I work part-time, have four children and a husband at home….and am a blogger. My time has never been more valuable to me.
I take my blogging seriously and am doing all that I can to be professional. One area that I was struggling with was my media kit. I kept putting off creating a media kit. I knew I needed one….but designing a media page is not an area of strength for me. When something is hard for me…I tend to put it off!
I became acquainted with Hip Media Kits and was impressed. I had been reading some great articles on their blog like 20+ Places to Find Totally Free Stock Photos That Don't Suck and 10 Important Things to Include in Your Media Kit. I decided since they had such great information for bloggers…maybe I should check out their media kit packages as well!
I know that my media kit will have to be updated a LOT. I needed a kit that was VERY easy to update. I attempted to make one myself and it was not going well. I wanted something professional looking, but also easy to customize!
I found all of that and more when I got my media kit package from Hip Media Kits!
They have several media kits to choose from, but not TOO many. I have trouble making a decision at times…. Each kit can be customized to fit your blog. You can add images, change the colors, change fonts, etc. It is EASY, EASY, EASY!
It took me about 15 minutes to complete my media kit. It would have taken less time if I hadn't had trouble deciding on colors, etc. It was WORTH EVERY PENNY! I love my media kit!! I also love that it will only take me a few seconds to update it as needed!
I know that bloggers are looking at each expense to see if it is justified. There are a lot of things I have done myself to save money. Nevertheless, sometimes the time it will take me to complete a task is just not worth it. It is cheaper in the end to pay someone who specializes in that area to do the work for me. This frees my time up to WRITE! 🙂 The good news is that these media kits are very affordable!
So I would highly recommend trying out Hip Media Kits! It is a great alternative for new bloggers or seasoned bloggers who want to impress brands with a professional and HIP media kit!
Do you have a media kit? Did you create it yourself or buy a template?

This is one of those things that has been living at the bottom of the mile-long To Do list. But I got a spike in traffic and I wish I had done it before. Thanks for posting. Hello from Think and Make Thursday.
Thanks for visiting! I was the same way…just didn’t have time to spend on it myself. This way to so much easier!
This is something I really need to do. I’m checking everything out now. Thank you for sharing this.
I’m pretty new to blogging so I hope you don’t mind this question, but what is exactly is a “media kit”?
It is a form that tells about you and your blog for companies and brands that may want to work with you! So you list all your “stats” and show them why they want to pay you to showcase their brand or product! If you go to my Contact Me page there is a link to my media kit you can look at as an example! Thanks for stopping by!
Awesome, thanks Jamie! Ok the post makes much more sense now, I was thinking it was a “kit” to help utilize various “media”…a how to for imbedding you tube videos or how to watermark pictures! 🙂 I’ll definitely check out your example…thank you so much! 🙂
