SEM & SEO a topic for MizMeliz with #GuruChats Wed Nov 22nd 2017

Posted on November 20th, 2017 by & filed under Events, Everything Miz Meliz, Twitter Chat

This week I have been asked to participate in #GuruChats, a bi-monthly event on Twitter for startups, small businesses, digital marketers, graphic designers, web designers and design creatives. I am uber excited to be involved with this amazing organization and I look forward to the chat. I love Twitter chats because they help me to get to know the real people behind the profiles on social media platforms. I a learn, make friends (not just “build relationships”) and I have had the opportunity to express my opinions and share my knowledge and experience with other people around the world in a way that I never thought possible. And you can, too!

Here is the plan for the LogoDesignGuru.com chat:

Once your business website is up and running, the real challenges and opportunities start. You want to target and convert customers, while be in the good books of search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing as well. So how do you do this? In this #GuruChats we’ve invited Elena Terentyeva to give us the lowdown on how small businesses and startups can use SEO and SEM to optimize their online presence, boost their reach and garner customers through traffic.  

Elena Terentyeva is Product Marketing Manager at SEMRush, an SEM/SEO company. She also has extensive experience in public relations, content, finance and broadcast journalism.

Join us on #GuruChats to discuss “My SEM, My SEO, My Business”, scheduled on Wednesday 22 November 2017 at 11:00 AM EST (8AM PST/3PM GMT).

Some of the topics they will be discussing are:

  • search engine optimization and marketing
  • keywords
  • outsourcing
  • algorithm updates

 

If this is your first time on a Twitter chat here are some guidelines you might find useful:

1. You may use Twitter.com to follow our chat by using the hashtag #GuruChats in the search bar or you can use Tweetdeck, Tweetchat or any other Twitter aggregators to simultaneously interact with participants and follow the chat, again searching for #GuruChats.

2. Since people will be following the chat even way after the scheduled hour, be sure to include the hashtag #GuruChats when you comment or answer a question or interact with tweeters.

3. Twitter restricts users by the number of characters you can use in each tweet. This means you’ll have to condense your idea or thoughts within a 140-280 characters limit. A smart way to go about this is pre-draft your answers or use visual aids, such as an image.

4. On the day of the chat be sure to log in 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time to get ready and be prepared for any glitches.

5.Your host at #GuruChats will start off by launching questions one by one specific to the topic in this order Q1, Q2, Q3 etc. You may answer the questions as they are posted or schedule your answers according to the time they’re posted. Mark your answers as A1, A2, A3 etc. to correspond to the respective question numbers so people will know which question you’re answering to.

6. Feel free to interact with other participants, give tips, ask questions, answer questions or any kind of knowledge you feel like sharing during the chat. Be sure to add #GuruChats with your every tweet.

7. Best tip: Be yourself and have fun!

Looking forward to see you there!

Grace Under Pressure

Posted on November 13th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz

In this incredibly busy digital age it isn’t often that we stop to think about what it means to be graceful. The word itself has many meanings and could symbolize something different for you than it does for me. When I used the word for my daily affirmations I was thinking of the state of grace in a spiritual way. I want to open myself up for a connection with the universe and the people I know and love. In that way I understand that grace can be a sense of spiritual understanding, acceptance, and perhaps a gift from God, acknowledging the goodness of my intention. But it doesn’t have to be a religious experience to be graceful or to have grace. People who come to mind that I always think of who were graceful in their actions and demeanor are Lady Diana, Audrey Hepburn, Maya Angelou, and Princess Grace of Monaco, herself. You do not have to be a public figure, a national leader, a princess, or an actress – royalty, ( in Hollywood or otherwise!) to be graceful in your actions. It is simply a matter of intention and mindfulness.

This week I will be discussing the concept of grace and how we can apply it in our daily life. If you have a favorite saying, story, poem, or memory having to do with grace, please share it in the comments or join the discussion on Anchor, at my podcast, This is The Sound of My Soul.

Daily Affirmations Inspired by A Year in Bloom Guidebook and Card Decks are available for purchase. Order yours today.

Friendship Sink or Swim

Posted on November 7th, 2017 by & filed under Be Inspired, Everything Miz Meliz, Theme of the Week

Do you trust your BFF? Will she let you drown or throw you a life-jacket? Are you the anchor in the relationship or the buoy? Don’t just float around in your relationships. Be the friend you would want to have. Be willing to share your best qualities. Show kindness and patience. Be honest and forgiving. Remember to be your own best friend. Listen to your heart. Don’t reject the kindness of others.

Hear my thoughts on my podcast, and check back at the end of the week for an update when I add more to the discussion from the Anchor app: iTunes

The affirmation is a reminder to be the kind of friend you would want, not only to others, but to yourself.

Why are we afraid to tell the truth?

Posted on October 17th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz

The word for this week is RISK. With the #MeToo conversation happening I want to support everyone who is speaking up and sharing their experiences. If you choose to talk about it publicly or not, you are not alone. You be you. Stand up for who you are.


It’s risky for some of us to just be ourselves. We find it difficult at times to share our true thoughts, feelings, ideas, opinions. We don’t think it matters. We don’t think other people care. We hide behind our smile or we just hide. What if we stopped hiding? What if we let our true colors shine through? I think the world would be more beautiful and a much better place, don’t you? Speak up! Take the risk! Share your thoughts. Be yourself. Smile your real smile.

Excitement Ignites the Spirit and Leads to Joy – My Interview with Zoey Taylor

Posted on October 9th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Inspiring Adventures

The theme for the week is Excite and the word alone lifts my spirit and gets my heart jumping for joy!

On Inspiring Adventures, I interviewed Zoey Taylor of the Warren Tattoo. This is probably the most personally inspiring interview I have ever done. I know without a doubt that meeting Zoey at this time in my life is a special thing, and her message is a gift for all of us. We talk about survival, finding joy, getting what you want in life, and not making excuses. There are many lessons to be learned in life, if nothing else, learn this – you lead by example, and Zoey is an example of true joy and happiness. She exemplifies the meaning of true success. Let her zest for life ignite your spirit!

Excitement Ignites the Spirit and Leads to Joy – My Interview with Zoey Taylor

When I asked Zoey what she wanted to talk about on the show, she said, “I think if we’re doing an inspirational interview then we could focus on surviving, and overcoming obstacles.”

It turns out Zoey knows quite a bit about that. She revealed to me why she spent most of her childhood living in the woods, with no electricity and has had no formal education. She explained that her abuser, who she refers to as “the monster” is in jail now, and that even though a person never “get’s over” something like that – she has found joy and lives a happy and successful life.

Zoey has an incredibly bright spirit and loves beautiful things. She is passionate about swing and ballroom dancing. Her favorite pastimes are record and record player collecting, making clothes, collecting history and antiques. Oh, and she loves bunnies.

“As far as people who inspire me, it would be my mom, and many dead legends whose biographies I’ve read.”
