Please tell us about the product or company you would like the blogger’s help with?
My name is Tracy Kiss, I am 28yrs old from London and I am a blogger with over 180,000 social media followers and 3million views. I have just released an ebook Traces Of I focusing on body image, self confidence and bullying to help people across the world to believe in themselves and find their inner beauty.
What is the blogging assignment?
In exchange for a free copy of my ebook ‘Traces Of I’ I would like you to write a review based upon the key message that beauty comes from within. Up until the age of eighteen I was at the mercy of the school bullies, I was the deathly shy and unconfident bookworm who sat in the corner and didn’t bother anyone which made me a prime target for their relentless torment. Most days I would cry for what they so cruelly put me through, as a child I hardly spoke, never made eye contact and had zero belief in myself. I was the underdog of life, the good girl that always finished last and with so much to give but no voice to make my views heard. At the age of eighteen I became a glamour model for a national UK newspaper and found confidence in my appearance which changed my life forever and because of this I have written Traces Of I. I want to empower women to recognise natural beauty and help men to appreciate and respect their partners.
What type of blogs are you looking for?
I am looking for bloggers worldwide from every background, age range and audience to become a part of something wonderful. I am a single parent to my two young children and will be donating the first £1,000.00 of my books sales to support an anti-bullying charity to raise awareness for victims and provide support for those going through such difficult times. Personally I have lost three people to suicide and know the effects that bullying has on your self esteem, outlook on life and ability to get out of bed in the morning. This book is my own personal journey in life and has such astounding feedback from those who have sampled it.
I would also like to begin a social experiment much like the nomakeup selfie but this time encouraging readers to take a selfie with their eyes shut placing a finger over their lips and including the hashtags #TracesOfI and #IamApril who is the main character in the story that survives bullying. Closing your eyes is symbolic of beauty coming from within and not based purely on appearance, with a finger over the lips reminding people to consider the feelings of others rather than passing ill-informed judgement.
In exchange for a book review I will retweet and share your blog post to my large social network as well as linking back to your blog site to encourage my traffic to come to you. As a blogger myself I believe in helping others and building strong social networks on a good foundation. Blogging is not competition but family and we can all help eachother.
I will also be creating a YouTube video to talk about the book launch where I can include your selfies if you wish. I hope you will help me to help others and find my writing a comfort for undoubtedly an experience that we have all faced at one point in our lives; bullying does not have to rule our lives, we are all beautiful, strong and independent individuals who sometimes need a helping hand to find self belief.
