About Me

I'm the 26-year-old blogger behind The Happy Arkansan. I have been blogging with variations of this blog since her freshman year of college in 2011. Since then, I have grown her blog and has been able to connect to several amazing millennial women all across the country through her college, career, fashion, and lifestyle-related content.

I have a passion for helping other people through the experiences I've lived. I discuss things like college study techniques, beauty and fashion (specifically plus size fashion), sorority recruitment, career tips, and so much more.

To me, happiness is telling stories, sharing recommendations with, and just interacting with readers of her blog.

I have plans to grow this blog more each year. I'm excitedly working to shoot amazing photos with my dad, edit photos, and produce stellar long-form content for my readers.

When you work with me, you can rest assured that I will put time and energy into giving you a finished product you and your team can be proud of.

A Look At A Sponsored Post Campaign:

Here's a recent campaign I did with Kohl's. I wrote a post about fashion tips every college student should know. I ended up with over 50,000 impressions on this campaign mostly due to Pinterest, where I ended up with over 850 clicks to my blog and thousands of pin impressions. All of this took place during a time when Kohl's was having a big back to school promotion. It led to countless people in their demographic knowing about their sale while it was happening. Plus, this post is still up, running, and evergreen enough to apply year-round (but especially during back to school season.)

Paid Brand Ambassadorships – Starting at $300 A post

I am always looking to join paid brand ambassador programs for brands! Brand ambassadorships must consist of 3+ long-form blog posts. These posts have a higher starting point than regular posts because they require more deliverables and more creativity.

Here is an example of a brand ambassadorship I did with Tai Pei:

Affiliate Program Opportunities

I love working on sponsored post projects, but I would be more than willing to work with your affiliate program. I'm not a part of programs like LikeToKnowIt or RewardStyle; I enjoy creating connections with affiliate marketing managers and individual programs. I'd love to chat with any affiliate marketing manager about joining their program and finding a way to create a meaningful connection between your brand and mine. I do not wish to join every affiliate program known to man, though, so I may decide to skip your affiliate program.

For more of my look at affiliate marketing, I recorded a podcast with my friend Samantha all about my thoughts on affiliate marketing and how I approach the subject.

A Look At One Of My Favorite Affiliate Partnerships:

In 2018, I wrote a review for Freshly just using my referral code. After using that as much as I could, decided to join their affiliate program on Impact. Ever since making this transition, I've made a few hundred dollars a month from one post. Since then, I've written another review for Freshly, and am working with them to create even more collaboration opportunities. I've also made over $2,200 with them this year alone, while they've made over $6,500 with this collaboration. Many of my recent audience members have told me how they found my website thanks to my Freshly review which ranks on the first page for terms like “freshly reviews,” “freshly review,” and “get freshly.” All of my Freshly rankings are entirely organic. I have spent no money to get on the first page for this result.

Search Engine Optimization And Affiliate Life:

Creating high-quality reviews and other content that ranks well is a big way that I make affiliate income. I take SEO very seriously, as well as growing my Pinterest account and following. For example, you can see down below that my average position for the keyword “SheIn reviews,” is 5.0. That traffic goes to my honest SheIn review. While I don't make nearly as much income from that review thanks to a 10% commission rate and the honesty in my review, it does make a good amount of income each month.

Guest Blogging Opportunities – Starting at $200

I love writing for other brands, and I would be more than willing to write a long-form guest post for your website. Since I put a lot of time and energy into creating content, unless you are a fellow blogger, I charge at least $200 for the blog post. I don't allow sponsored guest blogs on The Happy Arkansan, but I would gladly write one or more guest posts for your website. You can credit me for those articles, or they can be ghostwritten. Any topic I talk about on The Happy Arkansan could be a potential topic for your website.
