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.

Triberr Related

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.

Think again.

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.

I love both of these posts and couldn’t decide which one to share with you, so here they are.

3 Ways in Which Meditative Practices Can Help You Grow Your Business and The Next Big Thing in Blogging is YOU!

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’

    I’m already sinking into Dino withdraw.

    Ok, so I am totally jealous because you are going to that awesomely fantastic looking place. Also, Triberr is something that I need to work on (because I don’t really understand if it is helping me or not) and I just find out that you are the founder of it! I was recently invited to a tribe by a fellow blogger and am taking time to understand its impact. Maybe all that list above will help me do it while you are on the break! Poor us 🙂
    Hope you have a lovely time!

    • http://stanfaryna.wordpress.com Stan Faryna

      Hajra, the best approach is not what can your invite tribe do for you. The better approach is what you can build together with those tribespeople. Triberr offers several things, but if you focus on building micro-communities, connecting with other bloggers (especially those that don’t share your particular niche or point of view), and curating people – you’ll do awesome.

      Detach yourself from personal interest, smart goals, and ambitious outcomes, those items will be served (beyond your imagination) if you demonstrate a servant heart.

  • http://stanfaryna.wordpress.com Stan Faryna

    Enjoy you and the crew. You deserve real time with you and yours. It sets a good example and makes an excellent point.

    Have a great time off Dino you need it. I mean, look at that crazy hair man! It’s out of control. Obviously the biproduct of WAY too much work. And I’m jealous of that destination – looks spectacular.

    Unfortunately there is no Memorial Day here in Thailand so I guess I’ll be working. Or perhaps I just won’t, though I doubt it.

    Oh yeah and the naked stats feature? Uber badassery at it’s finest. Let’s see if some tribes start thinning out 🙂

    You’re too cool Dino – loved your outspoken vid with Srini by the way… You were hilarious and shared some great insights bro…

    Wow, you’re going to have a great time… Havasupai Falls freaking awesome!  Hope you catch lot’s of fish!

    See you next week when you’re back in the office : )

    Take pics!

    Dino, aloha.  Delighted to hear that you are taking the time off.  You and Dan are doing magnificent work with Triberr.  Also, I love all the new bloggers I meeting on diyblogger.

    Have fun, my friend. Until next week, aloha.  Janet

    P.S.  Rob’s post is great.  Put my name in to be kept in the loop for the new “toy.”

    Hey Dino,

    I’m taking some time off as well, but I won’t be going anywhere as nice as the place where you are going. I won’t be working, and that’s the important part.

    But, before I leave, I’m going to read your posts on Triberr. I haven’t been that focused on what Triberr is all about… but I really believe in Triberr and that it can make a huge difference. So, now I’m going to learn about bones and all the other stuff 🙂

    Have a great weekend.


  • http://hustlersnotebook.com Jk Allen

    Enjoy that time buddy. I just got back home last night from a 8 day vacation to Disney World (FL)…so I’m lucky enough to have a 3 day weekend to back that up. 

    Let’s catch up when you return.
