Melany

Melany Berger is a “no-holds-barred” blogger and social media influencer. She is the creator of MelanysGuydlines, which is a lifestyle blog with a snarky twist. She will tell you that snarky is witty but younger and better looking and says what most are thinking but do not say themselves. Think Chelsea Handler with a splash of Perez Hilton. MelanysGuydlines won the Best Dating and Relationship Blog of 2014 and the Shorty Awards Vox Populi 2015 for the most fan nominations in the blogger category. In addition to writing about relationships, Melany has proven herself as a trusted brand ambassador and social media influencer. She loves to give back to her readers through partnering with brands and offering exclusive opportunities. She works with top tier brands ranging from Microsoft, Lenovo, Murad, Zazzle, Cox Communication, Bud Light Lime, American Express, Disney, Overstock, USA Networks, the NFL and many more. When Melany is not blogging or representing brands, she can be found engaging with her followers online. She has amassed a large and loyal following of 100,000+ on her social media channels. A professional in the music industry, Melany has worked for major entertainment giants such as MTV, Irving Azoff and William Morris. Knowing the business inside and out, Melany has no shortage of hysterically epic and true tales of what it’s like to be a rock-star or at least party like one! She is an Advisory Board member at the University of Arizona for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and enjoys lecturing and teaching students about the future of social media and how they can turn social media influence into a profession. She is an active member on the Student Engagement and Marketing Committees for the Advisory Board as well as a recurring guest lecturer for eSociety at the University of Arizona. Melany’s family created two scholarships in her sister’s name at the University of Arizona after her passing in 2010. The two scholarships are awarded to a male and female student and part of the most prestigious at the University. The Brenna Ilana Berger Memorial Scholarship covers in-state tuition, room and board, and books. It honors her sister’s memory as an At-Risk School Counselor in Los Angeles by enabling students who have faced significant obstacles in the pursuit of their college education. Her family is very active in keeping close contact with the scholarship recipients.

Never Forget Is More Than A Hashtag: 9/11/2020

Parents ask your children if they know what happened on September 11, 2001. Teachers ask your students if they know what #neverforget truly means and if they know it is more than a hashtag for social media. Children ask your parents if they remember what really happened that day. Do they know who our true enemies were and still are? Who the heroes were that day and are today? How we came together as the greatest country in the world regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or political views to fight our true enemies. United as one. Do they know?  … Continue Reading

Thoughts From The Other Side

I don’t do splitting hairs. I do read entire posts. I don’t jump on bandwagons. I have a brain of my own. I am not a sheep. I am so, so over social media. I do not attack others if they have differing views than my own. I am proud to be American. I stand proudly for my flag. I respectfully disagree with you but we can still be friends because I am not four years old and can have a passionate conversation with others that have differing views than my own. I am an independent thinker in every single… Continue Reading

Passover Isn’t Cancelled: Why Is It Different From All Others?

Passover Isn’t Cancelled: Why Is It Different From All Others?

We ask, “Why is tonight different from all other nights?” Mah nishtanah halailah hazeh mikol haleilot?   Passover is about uniting as one and overcoming a treacherous journey through unfamiliar land, while persevering with strength and faith. It celebrates The Exodus of the Jewish people escaping freedom from slavery and the 10 plagues which struck down their oppressors. The Jews were protected from these plagues and their homes were “Passed Over” by having faith and following the commandments of Moses. This Passover is not cancelled. It is a time for us to reflect. Why is this Passover different from all… Continue Reading

The Blame Game: Who Wins?

The Blame Game: Who Wins?

Last week, during my self-imposed quarantine, it became clear to me that I need to write about the pandemic we are facing in the world because it is unlike anything we have ever seen. Some people have decided to rewrite history to make themselves feel better by destroying bits and pieces of what actually happened in the past, but this is going to be an honest and true documentation of what is happening for me, if not for anyone else.  We may not be proud of things that have happened in the past, but they happened, and we need to… Continue Reading

Dear Spoiled Americans,

Dear Spoiled Americans, This is for you! The Coronavirus is affecting every, single one of us. You are not the only one. Ok? So, let’s get that straight. Someone has it worse than you and you need to remember that. It is really easy to be a keyboard warrior while there are real people doing their JOBS going above and beyond to protect you, the ungrateful. They are risking their own lives daily so you can sit from the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas, eating cookies, with your family and complain that you are able to work… Continue Reading

Rosh Hashanah: Spiritual Healing Begins From Within

To all my family and friends who observe, wishing you a very happy and sweet Rosh Hashanah. During the commencement of the Jewish New Year let this first night begin a spiritual journey of introspection and repentance. Let us sit quietly for a moment away from our electronics and focus on ourselves. Spiritual healing and forgiveness must begin from within. From there we may then ask ….. To those I may have wronged…..I ask for forgiveness. To those I may have helped….I wish I had done more. To those I may have neglected to help….I ask for understanding. To those… Continue Reading
