Wanting to create your own Media Kit for PR? Here's my Social Media Kit Stats as inspiration (27 Mar 2014)

Let's get socially active

So you've been asked by a PR company for a media kit about your food blog but have no idea what to give them. Well here's my Social Media Kit Stats which I thought might be of interest to other food bloggers if you don't know where to start or what you might want to include. Keep in mind this is what I feel would be important for a PR company to know about me and my social media reach. Just like a resume there's countless ways you can provide information about your food blog or any type of blog for that matter that might be helpful for PR companies if they're looking to approach a blogger. I think at the end of the day it boils down to what you want to share, what the PR company might find useful to know and what's achievable in obtaining current stats at the time you need to provide them. I've chosen something that hopefully gives a good overview of my interests and provides enough stats that I can easily obtain quickly. Free free to base your media kit on something similar or just take as inspiration for developing your own media kit if you don't  already have one. I find each time I update it it's interesting to see how its changed and it's also a great way to remind you of what you've achieved and perhaps give you inspiration of where can improve. Over time I'm sure it will develop and change depending on what might be necessary to share but at the moment it seems to give me and hopefully PR companies a good snapshot of what Simon Food Favourites is all about.

Wow so many followers - mindblowing!
I wish it wasn't so important to stay connected though, some of us bloggers do it because we love it but have no time to create and update various social media accounts.
But well done on this fantastic achievement anyway. When is the next Sydney Food Bloggers meet up? I've been keen to come along for a while now :)
