MEDIA KIT

Writing is one of my passions and I am so grateful to have created something positive and inspiring out of it! I am very grateful for all the blessings I have received through this endeavor!

Since I’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries lately and have been collaborating with a lot of sponsors, I decided to create my own media kit! So, what is a media kit? It’s basically a resume for writers, bloggers, vloggers, influencers, or anyone that does something related to media.

This is my own version of a media kit. I collated a common media kit, FAQs page, testimonials, about me, and anything I want to put on this write-up that would make you decide if you want to collaborate with me!

NOTE: I will try to update this media kit as much as I can if there are any significant changes to the details I provided. If you have any thoughts on my media kit, just let me know in the comments. I would be grateful for any feedback!

TRAVEL WRITERS

“Reading Irene’s Asian travel guides is pretty much like being there already. They are perceptive, truthful, and at times, humorous. Best of all, they are extensive, making them perfect references for a trip ahead.” — GRETCHEN DUBLIN, filipinaexplorer.com

“Irene’s voice is one of immense gratefulness. I love how she writes her pieces with care – not imposing, only with the intention, first and foremost, to share her experiences. She writes beautifully – a rarity in the blogging world – and her passion for the written word and adventures comes across strongly. You’ve got a new fan, Irene! See you on the road one of these days!” — CELINE REYES, celineism.com

DO YOU WANT TO COLLABORATE WITH ME? 

Hi! Thank you for your interest in collaborating with me and Inspiring Grateful Travels. For any write-up, please be informed that I will always indicate in my articles if I have been sponsored (free products or services) or paid (free products or services + income) whether it’s within the article or a separate note. I will not feature brands/companies that ask me to hide this information.

My write-ups are, most of the time, very detailed and pretty emotional. My writing style is somewhat similar to someone telling a story to a friend.

My goal is to always convey any product or service with full of heart, passion, and contentment for my readers. My goal is that when they read the article, they will feel like they were there and encourage them to experience the service or use the products themselves. I always write my experiences in the most honest and positive way that I can, in the most grateful state that I am in.

I am open to doing collaborations through:

  • Blog Series – Always Be Grateful!, Travel Gratefully!, & Reviews/Hauls! 
  • Blogger x Brand product or service write-ups
  • Familiarization/Press/Media trip write-ups

If you are interested in collaborating with me & Inspiring Grateful Travels for other purposes, email me your proposal(s). I’ll be very excited to read them! 😉 

 

CAN I MAKE AN ITINERARY FOR YOU?

Apologies as I cannot make an itinerary for you. I always get a lot of inquiries asking me to make an itinerary or book flights for trips.

Please note that I am not a travel agent. I write my travel experiences in the most detailed way that I can. I feel that there is enough information from my articles for you to plan your own trips. 

 

DO YOU WANT TO SEND ME SOMETHING?

I feel that my address is too personal for me to provide (and I don’t have a PO box) so if you want to send me something to write about or just want to send something because you love my write-ups, please email me first at irene.maligat@yahoo.com and we’ll go from there!
