If you want your blog to reach a wider audience, keep reading. I have three blog groups I am trying to establish.
But before I get to that, let me say that I was reluctant to write this post because I’m not used to asking for what I want. Blog promotion doesn’t come easy to me but how else are people going to know I’m here?
In this case, I want is to build a network of bloggers who tweet each others’ links. As you may or may not know, there’s a new invite-only website out there at http://triberr.com that sets it up so that the links are tweeted “auto-magically.”
I get excited about shiny new concepts like this. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t but as the saying goes, nothing beats failure like a try. Already I have met some really cool bloggers in the process and formed stronger alliances with bloggers I know well.
If you receive an invitation to join Triberr, you become a member of a tribe that your inviter controls. But once in, you can become the leader of three tribes of your own, which is cool. Instead of me explaining it all, visit the Triberr website or start by watching the video below. In the mean time, consider joining one of my three tribes. Each one has a theme and a set of criteria as follows (Note: These are my own criteria and not those of Triberr):
I’m looking for blogs written by men or women that have an edge or an attitude; they’re quirky, perhaps left-leaning politically or have mature subject matter. These blogs, for the most part, are personal blogs, although they may not fit neatly into a category. You must have at least 300 followers on Twitter unless I have already sent you an invitation. In that case, feel free to respond regardless of your following. I’m using the @sweepyjean account to tweet this tribe.
In this tribe, I’m look for blogs written by men or women that help spark creativity in their readers through prompts, advice, ideas, and articles. You must have at least 800 Twitter followers (anyone I already invited to the group is welcome to respond regardless of your following). I’m using the @1plus1wednesday account to tweet this tribe.
In this tribe, I’m look for blogs written by women who consider themselves to be poets, writers, artists, or other creative type and who want to take their game to the next level. Unless you’ve already been invited, you must have at least 800 Twitter followers. I’m using the @1plus1wednesday account to tweet this tribe.
Let’s get it poppin’. Email me if you would like to receive an invitation to join any of these groups (click the link up top for contact info and be specific about which group you think you are suited for). If you know someone who would like to join, recommend them to me. If you don’t fit into any of these categories or if all my slots fill up, I can recommend you to another tribe leader. It is also possible to search the site and ask existing tribes for an invitation. It couldn’t hurt to try!
