    Creator Media Kit

    If you are an online creator who would like to work with me, here are some ways we can work together.

    About Me

    I am a content creator, freelancer, and podcaster. I have been creating content online since 2011. My first journey into creating content was called College Is Love. In 2015, I transitioned that brand into The Happy Arkansan. I've been going by that name ever since.

    On top of The Happy Arkansan, I also create content for my freelance brand Amanda Cross Co. and my podcast, The Ambitious Freelancer. I've learned so much over the years, and I like to create content that others can use in their daily lives.

    One of my favorite parts about blogging is connecting with other creators. I want to do more connecting in 2020, so I created my creator media kit.


    I love chatting about a variety of topics. Here are a few things I can write about:

    • Affiliate Marketing
    • Blogging
    • Fashion (plus-size fashion, specifically)
    • Freelancing
    • Higher Education (Going to college, graduate school, getting involved on campus, etc.)
    • Lifestyle
    • Social Media

    Guest Blogging

    Would you like to receive a guest post from The Happy Arkansan? All of my guest posts are long-form. Most of my guest posts end up being 1,000-2,000 words. I will do one guest post for free for your blog. Check out the expertise section above to see what I create guest posts on.

    Here are some of my past guest posts so you can see what I can create for you:


    Do you need an expert opinion to add to your round-up? I'd love to be involved in interview round-ups for any of the topics in my expertise section.

    Podcast Interviews

    I love being a guest on podcasts! Do you need a podcast guest? Hit me up because I'd love to go on your show, no matter how big or small it currently is. I will do podcast interviews for up to an hour (if you need me longer, let me know in advance because I will make exceptions for the right show.)

    Summits And Other Opportunities

    Do you want to interview me for a digital summit or another event? If it's a digital summit, I can arrange my schedule and make time to chat with you. Let me know!

When I am not creating content for any of my content online, I can usually be found baking, watching YouTube, or napping. I love helping millennials and young adults navigate the mess that is adult life. Keep reading for my thoughts and experiences.
