Branding Advice All Bloggers Need

Branding advice for bloggers is something I discuss frequently and agree with Laura’s post and points discussed here about the topic! Take notes. Thanks Laura.  If you’re trying to be successful as a blogger, you have to treat your blog like a business. And like any business, it’s important for your blog to have a brand. When you have a brand, you can market yourself and your blog better. But as many blog owners aren’t coming from a position of being a business person or entrepreneur, they might not have a lot of experience with branding. Branding your blog is… Continue Reading

Just In Time For March Madness: Melany Berger On Cats In The Corner Office

It is my favorite time of year! The weather is amazing (maybe a little toastier than usual in Arizona reaching 95 and 96 degrees the past few days), Spring Training Baseball in the Valley of the Sun (Go Giants) and March Madness College Basketball all over the country.

Woohoo! Go CATS! BEARDOWN. March 1 is the day that I was interviewed by the Arizona Alumni… Continue Reading

My Guest Lecture On Social Media Marketing At the University of Arizona

My Guest Lecture On Social Media Marketing At the University of Arizona

My favorite past time is guest-lecturing students! I had so much fun and am still catching up from last week but wanted to share a few pictures from my talk at the University of Arizona. I absolutely love speaking about social media, blogging, marketing and influencer work for the ESOC: Information Science and Esociety! The students were engaged, bright eyed and excited for my lecture. I have received emails from a few of them already. Keep them coming.   Many faculty joined as well. Bonus was my mother was in town and had the opportunity to hear me speak! This… Continue Reading

I’m Speaking At The University of Arizona: Social Media Influencer vs. Celebrity

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!

This is a topic I have written a lot about as of late and am looking forward to returning and meeting the students again. Here are my two favorite posts about the topic so far: Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1 Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2… Continue Reading

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

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

Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

OMG! Be forewarned, this is one of the cutest things you will read all day! Evite just launched a new Pet Party Themed category with invitations and correspondence cards. How cute is that? I can’t get enough of the options on the Evite site. Seriously? Where does one start? I wanted to throw a football pawty for Teddy since he is named after Teddy Bruschi (the football player, of course) and they had the cutest Evite on the site. Look! LOVE! Touchdown! But, the problem is there are no football games on right now and I want to throw Teddy… Continue Reading
