Blogger And Social Media Influencer: How to Work With Brands You Love #MediaChat Answers

Being a Blogger/Social Media Influencer: How to Work With Brands You Love #MediaChat Answers

Wow, my #Mediachat guest spot last week with Aaron Kilby was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed. The numbers were insane and we even had an entire class from University of Florida there. I was the guest of honor and did not even know it! They were hungry Gators! I won’t hold it against them even though I am a proud Wildcat For Life! BEARDOWN Since there were so many tweets (thank you) I thought I would share the questions and tweet-able answers I prepared for the chat just in case you missed them. There… Continue Reading

YAY! I could not be happier to go back to school and guest lecture my favorite people in the world a.k.a. future University of Arizona #wildcatsforlife about social media!

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2

Continued from my previous post….. Did you read it? You should right here. The next interesting issue from my previous post is about social media influencers turning celebrity. Not like Brad Pitt celeb status but more like a Tila Tequila celeb status. Usually these C-D-listers, so called celebs are so entitled that they are here one day and gone the next. Out faster than onesies for the holidays. In this case, these people are usually managed or have agents like the guy I met a while back and is now feeling “holier than thou” trying to sign “digital” talent. He… Continue Reading

He is in the running to be the face of Evite #pawtypeople contest with your help! If you missed it last week, check out my post about the new Evite section for Pet Party Evites.

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

This post was written a few months back while visiting Los Angeles (I got out for good this time because I served two full sentences there and have not looked back since) and I have been so busy that I did not get around to sharing then but am making time right now! This is an important post and describes the difference between a celebrity and influencer in snarky terms, of course. Ahh Hollywood. You never cease to provide me with ample amounts of snarky material to address on this here blog. I love you for that (and just that)…. Continue Reading

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

Another year. Another Birthday. But, this year is going to be the best yet because I have been reciting my mantra and putting these things into place. It is one thing to say them and it is another thing to actually do what you say. So, for my Birthday this year: – I am not doing anything I don’t actually want to do. – I am not feeling obligated to anyone. – I am only doing what makes me happy. So, if you missed it here is the mantra…… Sound like a plan? I do have a little wish though…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

You Can Learn A Lot From A Dog

You can learn a lot from a dog!

Yes, you can learn a lot from a dog. I learn from Teddy Brewski every day. I mean, I learned last night that dogs will eat everything (even asparagus) if the opportunity arises. I will let you know how that goes. But what I really want to share with all of you people is this. As I walk Teddy Brewski and watch him walk his favorite walk every day and he always takes time to smell the roses. He also let’s someone else (me) deal with all of the “garbage”. I have decided to let go of a lot of… Continue Reading

Plug Me Back In: Hump Day Snarkiness

Plug Me Back In: Hump Day Snarkiness

Good Morning and happy Hump Day! In celebration of it being just that I thought I would share a little known skill I possess and might need to add to my media kit. I can rap (ish) the entire Humpty Dance by Digital Underground. Yes, that is me in an Uber. Highly recommend using uber when you feel a little happy of have a drink or 4. It is awesome. Also, take a look at my updated media kit if you have a product or work for a brand that might be a snarky fit for MelanysGuydlines. Always looking for… Continue Reading

FORE: Gone Golfing

FORE: Gone Golfing

I did it. I finally got in touch with a golf pro and am now on the golf course taking lessons. It is super challenging and takes patience, which I don’t usually have but need if I am going to be good at this sport. Yes, this is a sport. I apologize to my friend in seventh grade when I said golf wasn’t a sport. Wow – was I wrong! In my defense, I was an avid softball player and couldn’t see anything else but a softball bat and a ball (and cute baseball players). So, I am finally taking… Continue Reading

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

Love this super snarky post from Laura! She is really getting the hang of the snark! Well done and great tips here. I would have been equally annoyed with this guy and probably would have told him where he could go before he proceeded with point two. Take it away. Last night I came face to face with my first ever real life ‘Life Coach’. And I can quite honestly say that I could have gone my entire life without meeting him, or any other life coach for that matter, and been perfectly happy. But this article is not about… Continue Reading
