About Melany Berger

Melany Berger (Better than a hotdog) a.k.a. – “Snarky” or Queen of Snark

All snark, all true. Nine lives worth of short stories, advice & raw judgement on relationships, life, products and everything in between.

These have all happened to me and I just write it like I see it. You may not like it, but I probably don’t like you. I have lived at least 9 lives and thought I would offer a window into some of them. Chill out and get over yourself before you read these! Words of wisdom from one of the smartest people I ever knew. KISSEZZ.

I write about working (unknowingly) as a flytrap for ALL the stupid people in the world. I have been told that I need to write a book so, I started blogging!

About Melany Berger:

From Northern California originally, graduated Cum Laude from the University of Arizona but moved to Los Angeles following graduation to work for MTV, the William Morris Agency, Irving Azoff, and CAA in the music business (behind the scenes because I break car windows and make dogs bark when I try and sing). It was fantastic until I realized I was approaching 30’ish and no longer wanted to be a groupie in a rock band. So, I packed my things and relocated back to San Francisco where the freaks got weirder and my dating life nearly stopped because the guys were more interested in looking at each other than me which brought me back to Los Angeles. In LA, I had the opportunity to work in Marketing and Promotions with numerous high profile tours. I saw the change shifting in music to online media and enjoyed learning about social media. After suffering a few personal hardships, I wanted a change. I went down to Barnes & Noble, picked up a book called Blogging for Dummies, read 5 pages and started on my way.

This is when I started It is my cathartic outlet.

The blog began as a dating blog but is now a lifestyle site. I wanted to cover more than relationships and discovered that brands were looking for influencers who wanted to monetize their followings. After completing another 2-year sentence in LA, I wanted a more “normal” life and relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona. Upon arrival in Phoenix, Melanysguydlines gained a lot more traction and my social media following increased considerably and is now over 450,000+ (not including my dog, Teddy Brewski’s following who has over 12K followers as well). The landscape has rapidly changed in the past 6 years but it has been a challenging journey full of interesting experiences. I have worked with some of the biggest brands for the blog and now primarily as a social media influencer because people don’t really like to read blog posts and would rather look at pretty pictures or watch video. Myself included! Also, I am the youngest member on the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Advisory Board and guest lecturer in social media. BEAR DOWN!
