My 9 Favorite IMers And People On The Internet

As the title of this blog suggests, there are certain blogs I like to frequent.  Not only are these blogs information rich, but, the people behind them are kind and helpful. There is one common thread among these people and that is PASSION and a burning desire to help people become successful.

A few of them have even said “if you need help, just hollar.”  If you are an Internet Marketer and have a blog or several blogs, then you know how precious time can be. To offer your help is a tremendous gesture of caring for others.  I swear, IMer’s are the best.

These names are in alphabetical order so let’s get to the list:

She has a report called “How to Sprinkle Magical Traffic Dust on Your Blog Comments (A Blog Commenting Guide.”

I downloaded her guide and read it from cover to cover.  It’s great because if I don’t remember a particular process, I can go and re-read it.

All of the steps are simple, but important.  She closed her other blog down and started The SEO Rebel this year.

She did a study on her blog and gives progress reports on how much traffic she is getting with her process.  She was able to generate  over 8,000 visitors to her site in the first month.

You go girl!  Ti was also, mentioned in another post called 4 Great Places To Curate Content And Meet VIP’s.

You can’t help but be attracted to Adrienne because with that smile she lights up the world.

Adrienne started out in the secretarial world and worked her way up to being an executive assistant.  Here is what she says, “I’m very passionate about what I do and I would be honored to help YOU as well”.

There’s that word, again. When I saw her smile on twitter, I went to check out her blog, and from there, I knew I had to follow.

Adrienne is very friendly and down to earth.  No pretenses here.  There are a lot of great tips on her blog about how to communicate with people online.

She has made a ton of friends on the Internet because she is so honest and transparent.  She has been online since 2009 and has seen lots of changes take place on the Internet.

I frequent her blog at least a couple of times a week.  She has this gift of being able to help  people learn how to interact and build relationships with others.

She makes her living through affiliate marketing and consulting with others on how to help them build a presence on the internet.

She is known around the net as the “Engagement Superstar.”

Ileane Smith pic My 9 Favorite IMers And People On The InternetMs Ileane Smith

My own personal name for Ileane is “YouTube Guru.”  If you want to know anything about how to make your videos more SEO friendly, Ileane is your girl.  She started her blog in 2009 and learned early on that making connections with other bloggers was of the utmost importance.

She owns her blog at and there you will find a multitude of tutorials on blogging, podcasting, guest posting and tips.  It doesn’t matter whether you are a newbie or a seasoned marketer you will find the info you are looking for concerning blogging, social media and YouTube on Ileane’s blog.

I’m a visual learner, so I prefer video to reading.  In this business, though, you have to do a certain amount of reading and you can’t get around that.  Ileane is a very knowledgeable and helpful person.  When she comments on your post she will usually leave a tip or tell you about her latest find.

I met Ileane on JustRetweet and started reading her posts and when I saw the quality of the content she was putting out, I started following her on Twitter.  I’ve learned a lot about YouTube and SEO on your video from Ileane.  Sure glad I started following.

That about wraps it up.  There are a couple of others that I didn’t mention, but I’ll have to save that for another post.

Hope this list was helpful.  Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Susan,

      Thanks for your input, Susan. It’s always good to hear from you. Yes,they are all awesome. Adam has some great posts. It seems that I always learn something from his posts.

      Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Going over to read your latest post.



  4. Adrienne Says:

    Hi Geri,

    Oh my, I’m so very flattered to be on your list and about all the nice things you said.

    I know everyone on your list but Carol, Eric and Tiffany so thanks for these introductions. I know how it is when you find helpful people online that not only provide excellent information that can help us learn and move forward but are kind and considerate as well as willing to answer a question every here and there.

    As you know my story Geri, I never had that when I started which is why I like to be available if anyone has something I can help them with. Sometimes we just need an answer to a question from someone we trust. I enjoy being that someone.

    By the way, I’ve actually been online since 2007 but started my blog in 2009. Yeah, I can’t believe it’s been this long either.

    Thank you again Geri for this mention and you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week.

      Have a great Thanksgiving and don’t eat too much. :) I probably will even though I don’t want to. :).
