definatalie.com press kit 2012 (click to embiggen)

About a year ago I was designing a serious press kit. I was going to get advertising and sponsorship and I would have pretty things and shoes and it would have been SO GRAND. I never finished it because it didn’t feel right and I’m glad I didn’t go through with it. I know I would have lost the trust of plenty of you, and without you I’m just writing to myself.

It’s worth mentioning that I do not have anything against bloggers with press kits who are in brand relationships and earn stuff off their blogs. It’s just not something I feel good in my soul about.

My favourite part is the bio written by Lillian who is the most hilarious person ever.

Mr. and Mrs. Natalie’s parents were walking down a path on a warm summer day in Brisbane when they saw a fat fruit swinging from a mysterious tree. They approached it and it burst open revealing a fancy baby. They clutched the baby in their arms and named her Natalie.

Some years later, Natalie had made a name for herself in the worlds of art, blogging and radical fat positivity. She has a cute dog named Miffy and lots of fancy experience doing fancy things and also of sitting at home belching glitter bubbles in her garden.

    I know I am 8 months late, but I have always loved this post and your “press kit.” Although I commend other bloggers for making money doing what they love, sometimes it gets to a point where you can’t get to the content for all the advertising on their pages…
    Anyway, I am glad someone is keeping the art of blogging honest and in a way pure. (not in a bad way, just in a way that is not muddled by conflict of interest – who are you writing for, the brand or the readers??)
    Anyway, I absolutely love your blog. I two suffer from mental illness and felt it in my heart when I’d read your post reflecting on your health…
    Keep it up!
    Jen L
