Gone Fishin` There’s a Sign Up On the Door
We work WAY too much. So, I’ve decided to take some time off.
The Memorial Day weekend is coming up. And I’m taking my crew to Havasupai Falls, which is part of the Grand Canyon National Park.
Want to see what that looks like?
I know. It looks amazing. I cant wait.
Anywho…you should take some time off as well. But if you insist on staying home or at work and reading blogs, I decided to make a little reading list for you. A kind of best of the best.
For the last few months, my life has been Triberr. If I’m getting too annoying with all this Triberr stuff, feel free to let me know. But the truth is, Dan-O and I really believe in the platform and we think its the best thing since sliced bread to happen to bloggers.
So here are few Triberr updates that just might blow your mind.
Social Media is transparent. I’ll grant you. But it was never meant to be THIS transparent. Dan had rolled out a new feature we’re calling Naked Stats. And it blew my mind. ANd based on the comments, mine wasn’t the only mind blown.
Triberr is an amazing platform, but this feature alone makes it worth while. See for yourself. Your Favorite Bloggers Caught Naked on Video
A very controversial post that spurred quite a debate on Danny’s blog and even spilled over to others. Who knew that little ol’ me could be so controversial.
What are Triberr Bones? We keep tabs on google search performed by the world, and that phrase has been in the top position since we opened doors.
The post explaining Triberr Bones and how the whole thing works has been long overdue. So it finally got published and you can read all about it here.
Awesome Posts from around the World
I don’t do a lot of link posts like this one. So I’m relishing the opportunity to bring you few posts that I found amazing, fascinating and definitly worth not taking a vacation for.
You really need to quit yer bitchin’. “Twitter is stupid. Twitter cant make me money.”
Rob Dempsey has written an awesome post, not a word of which should be missed. This guy is a full time Internet entrepreneur feeding his extended family using Twitter.
What I found really funny about his post is that Rob is NEVER directly on Twitter. He is leveraging a Twitter-app Trifecta for maximum results. Do yourself a favor, and check it out.
Mark Harai has written a post about one of my favorite people, Mr. Wow, Srinivas Rao, and the effect Srini’s online relationships have transitioned into a real-world relationships. With real, tangible, quantifiable benefits. In fact, this will be a topic that Srini will share with the world during the BlogWorld 2011 conference in NY. If you’re there, make sure you check him out.
Just plain important an useful.
If you are a blogger and don’t know what Bounce Rate is, this post will tell you. If you dont know how to lower your Bounce Rate, this post will tell you.
Short, sweet, useful and to the point. I love the way Jens laid it all out in plain English.
Best of DIYB
I work hard to bring you awesome content every day. So in case you missed it, these are the posts that you found very useful.
Jason Yormark wrote this post about his real-life climb to the top of the google ranking for a phrase he wasn’t really trying to rank for.
I love the title of the post (which Jason came up with btw) because it really reflects the black art that is SEO. This also spurred a follow up post by an SEO expert Dan Cristo (yes, my Dan Cristo) which gave us a deeper look at the mechanics behind Jason’s climb.
Every time I publish a post about blogging, it gets a huge number of comments and becomes most retweeted, visited, indexed post. It brings new audience to my blog and whilst I prefer to do posts like this one, I also love giving people what they want. So have at it.
- A Toss Up!
I love both of these posts and couldn’t decide which one to share with you, so here they are.
You decide which one you want to read. They’re both pretty good.
If That’s Not Enough!
I’ll be back sometime next week. Till then…I’m gone fishin’
