One word to describe Melany Berger? According to her blog that word is snarky. That same blog, MelanysGuydlines.com, is up for a Shorty Award the day many may be listening to this episode (4/2015). In all fairness, she already won the Vox Populi vote for most fan votes for the blogger category - so she's off to a great start. Melany is also an Advisory Board member at the University of Arizona for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and enjoys teaching students about the future of social media and how they can turn social media influence into a profession. My introduction to Melany came in a recent episode of Social Hangout. What stood out to me immediately was the level of energy she brings to any conversation. It's safe to say she brought that to Why I Social. Get to know Melany as we discuss blogging, being a Shorty award finalist and annoyance of before and after fitness photos on Instagram.
