Don't Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking Brownies

Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking Brownies

The Triberr Stream Can Distract You With Some Great Posts

The other day I was baking brownies and almost burnt them as I was reading my Triberr stream via my Droid. Oh yes, that nasty multi-tasking habit of mine. The buzzer went off as I was engrossed in seeing many new informative posts. I tried to save some to read later. I shared some and then the brownies really started to smell. My brain finally took over and saved those brownies from a “Triberr burn.”

Triberr stream

 

Why Triberr?

A Great Blog Reader – You may remember a while back when everyone was blogging about which reader to use to keep up on reading blogs. I claimed Triberr was my best reader. It really is. I love checking out new posts there – all in one place and sharing as I go along via the Triberr stream. I then go back and view the ones I have shared to comment on when I have the time.

Exposure to New Blogs – One of the best things about being on Triberr and reading the Triberr stream is coming across new bloggers and blogs you may not have otherwise found. Don’t forget while you are there in the stream to comment on some of the posts. I tend to comment on the ones I really love or if I have something to add to one or question.

Keeps Your Twitter Stream Busy – It helps your sharing on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn , Google+ and StumbleUpon if you so wish.  See the 2 different ways you can share from the Triberr stream. I usually use the green share button but love how you can share the other ways too and will start to use them more. How do YOU share posts on Triberr?

What’s New At Triberr?

  • The Blog Feeds – Triberr has improved the blog feeds and added them to your profile.  You can now see when your blog feed was last imported.  While you are there on your profile don’t forget to fill out your Triberr profile or update it. I’ve seen several tribes that have not filled them out. I like to read about the tribes, who they are and where they are there before joining.
  • Triberr Notifications – You can now see what’s new via a Notifications on your Triberr account. I LOVE this new feature! You may see I have some catching up to do there with 33 notifications.  Have you been using your Triberr notifications yet?

  • New Share Button on Read Window – If you have opened the window of posts in your Triberr stream you were not able to share from there – you had to go back to do it. They now have updated this feature so you can share right from the read window. Makes it nice and easy now! A great time saver too.
  •  New Triberr Membership Options – The Prime membership price has dropped by $5 per month to $35 and they have added some additional features.  They now offer a discount for Prime Lite members if you pay yearly $102 vs $120). I am hoping to start this one soon. And lastly, Atomic Tribes are gone, no longer in existence. Those in Atomic Tribes will be grandfathered with some tweaks for all members. I’d love to hear from any Triberr paid members about the benefits via the comments). Dino and Dan are really an amazing team and are always there if you have questions. Who doesn’t mind paying with super customer service behind a product?
  • Triberr Campaigns – Now you can make money via the Triberr campaigns. Companies are looking for influencers in various niches to create campaigns via your blog and other social sharing – you can check them out today and sign up for any that you feel you would be able to do. I’d love to hear from someone who has done a Triberr Campaign. I’ve signed up for one in marketing and I am awaiting a response.

How are you using Triberr? If you are still not using Triberr yet, what have YOU been waiting for?

  • Hi Lisa

    I love brownies and I relate totally to cooking and doing social media at the same time. The brownies look great!

    As for Triberr, I am only using the free version and I do not really “get ” it. Well I sort of get it but not totally but you have convinced me to get to understand it properly.

    There are enough other people here who love it so I am obviously missing something.

    Thanks for some entertainment while sharing 🙂

    • Hi Sue, I still ate them 🙂 I use the FREE version too. Join tribes related to your niche, build up to at least 20 if you are not in that many (I’m at 65 today) and then share those that are relevant, skip those that are not, make sure your blog is set up properly there and over time you should see results and many shares in your Twitter stream. Any other part you are unsure of on Triberr? Thanks for coming by Sue and have a great day!

  • Hey Lisa,
    I hope you don’t completely burn out those brownies 🙂
    Now you even make me feel like I should eat some :mrgreen:

    As for Triberr, I’m begining to get the real taste of it. Hope to fully love it in a short while from now 😉

  • I’ve fallen out of love with Triberr recently Lisa.

    I kind of want to get away from the tribe sharing mentality and remain an individual – something I plan to write about in the near future.

    I really, really dislike the Affinity thing because it feels like it aims to give you a guilt trip into sharing things you wouldn’t otherwise have done.

    I also don’t like that my Twitter feed is just a constant stream of Triberr shares and they’re all the same posts! That’s just clogging the feed up.

    I still use Triberr but I am very careful about what I do and don’t share. I also don’t use the automated share much any more.

    For 2014, I’m aiming not to just share the bog standard text via the Twitter button. I think we need to be more intelligent than that going forward to get people’s attention.

    So, I now aim to give a reason why I’m sharing the Tweet as well or give some feedback in the Tweet.

    • Hi Tim, oh sad to hear. I don’t share things that I don’t think my followers will like because it will cheapen my Twitter stream. I don’t use the automated share – that would not be good. I do use Google+ and Pinterest more now as well. I look forward to reading your upcoming post on this topic Tim. Thanks for sharing your views on this here and have a great rest of the week there Tim.

  • You’re too funny Lisa!

    I can’t picture it girlfriend! I’ve gotten caught up like that too and almost burn my food.

    I would also love to hear more about Triberr campaigns. I see it on my dashboard but haven’t clicked on them yet.

    I’m also liking the new features and even thinking about upgrading my Triberr to take advantage of the auto-sharing feature it has.

    I was looking at my stats this morning and Triberr is definitley helping me in the traffic department.

    Burnt brownies or no, I would have eaten them anyway, LOL. Hope you’re having a great night Lisa!

    See ya in the socialverse!

  • 😆 Lisa, am I a brownie eater? Nope, but you sure stimulated my taste bud, that have got to check how this stuff is made.

    I most be sincere, haven’t been that active on on triberr of late considering that I just took a loop into Google plus and am trying to build my followers count.

    But I no for one that triberr is a great place to be and thanks for sharing this awesome article with us.

    Hope, you’re having a pleasant day? 🙄

    • Hi Peter, have you ever had brownies? Not a chocolate fan? Triberr is an awesome place to be. I missed out a little on Google+ past few days as life’s been a bit crazy lately. I love using Triberr on mobile, even without an app it works well there. Yesterday was a pleasant day, just starting a new one here now. I hope you have a great day and thanks for coming by Peter.

  • Hey Lisa
    Love the triberr!
    Was just telling Barb to get on there as a priority one today. I think you will be seeing her around Triberr soon.
    It was such a help when I was starting out blogging. Connecting you with like minded bloggers, some with lots of followers.
    Of course really connecting and commenting is also beneficial as we know, but it is great to have t place where we know all the bloggers gather!
    have a great week

    • Hi Ashley, Me too and I couldn’t agree more. I use it a lot via my mobile too even though they don’t have an app yet it works well on mobile. Glad you are using it to the fullest as well. Have you tried any of their premium features? I did one post on top of feed for $5 – it did get a lot more shares, something to use for some extra zing! Thanks for coming by Ashley and have a great day.
      Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

  • Hi Lisa,

    Now I want brownies!!!

    It’s been a while since I was on Triberr. I was working on a project that took so much time, I had to be so focused that had to cut away some of my social media networks.

    My oh my have things changed since I’ve been on there. I hope to be back on it pretty soon. Last year our dear friend Adrienne introduced Triberr to me and it was working so well. Then “the project” came onto my lap….

    Thanks for the update and I can’t wait to get back on it.

  • Hi Lisa,
    I have not used Triberr yet. There are no end to the groups on FB and LinkedIn and other groups such as Triberr to share content. I can relate to being so absorbed. As you remarked to Churchill, it’s life’s challenges along the way. Ah, if we only had three days to live at a time and a hundred lifetimes for our interests 🙂

    Have a beautiful day!

  • Great post Lisa and sorry about your brownies. 😛

    I like Triberr and am looking for more tribes in my niche per say. There are a lot of them out there, that’s for sure. Triberr is a great tool for any blogger to use. I only wish more would get on the bandwagon.

    So, were you able to salvage any of the brownies? 😆
    Bren recently posted..Getting Past Betrayal and Moving ForwardMy Profile

  • Hi Lisa,

    I have started using Triberr slowly and getting better at it bit by bit, thanks to you guys. This is definitely a bit confusing in the beginning but gets better as we continue to explore more and persist.

    I am still not very confident and can’t say I really have understood its power. But I am making progress for sure and I look forward to learning more about it in weeks to come. Thank you for sharing theseTriberr tips, again.

    Have a glorious week!

  • I had to laugh when you mentioned that you burnt the brownies while reading your Droid. I was commenting on Facebook on my iPhone and burnt the ground beef in the pan. Not a good idea to multitask while cooking.

    I haven’t been to Triberr in a while. The changes sound great and I’ill definitely swing by there tomorrow. Thanks for the update. I like the Triberr reader and forget to go there because I’m distracted by something else online. Btw, it snowed here on Saturday. How ’bout you?
    Lauren recently posted..A Blogger Looks Back to 2009 and Asks, Why Am I Here?My Profile

    • LOL Lauren, ouch, burning the pan too? Triberr is awesome and I do visit there almost daily. I think one day the past week I stayed offline, oh yes the day my mom came home from the hospital. I could not even tweet which was unusual for me. We did get a little snow but it did not stick, did yours? Now we just have the cold to contend with. Have a great week ahead and stay warm Lauren and be careful when you are cooking GF.
      Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

        Yes, we got a lot of snow. It snowed the entire day. The roads were bad around here late in the afternoon.

        Thanks for letting me know about the 403 errors. I found a bunch of broken links in BrokenLink Checker and fixed them. I’m having a problem with ReplyMe function in CommentLuv. I’m off to post a comment in the Forum.

I hope you got it resolved. You can email me, I may set you up as a contributor too. That would be nice 🙂 Thanks Lauren.
          Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

  • Hey Lisa,

    I do spend time on Triberr, but most of it is just for sharing…I don’t comment on any of the posts I read from Triberr (haven’t been able to do…..I just focus on commenting on the blogs from my reading list).

    Technically, I do comment on the posts from Triberr (many of them are in my reading list :D), but that doesn’t count, does it?

    I haven’t made any brownies (I don’t think I have done much cooking in my life…just helped my mom here and there. There was a time in which I had an active interest in cooking – I think it was in my middle school, not sure).

    I will probably revive that interest in the coming years (can’t do much now….most of my waking hours is spend on campus..so, I eat from college).

    As for dinner, well, my mom cooks dinner (I do help occasionally…have been a lot busier for the past couple of weeks).

    • Hi Jeevan, I do comment on occasion if I find something I really love – usually a few times per week. That puts them in another category . You haven’t lived Jeevan until you bake some brownies. Add that to your bucket list 🙂 How are things going with your classes? I can’t imagine keeping up with blog and going to college full time. Now I see where you got the name Daring Blogger 🙂 Have a good week Jeevan.
      Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

  • I’m glad you saved those brownies Lisa! I LOVE brownies and boy they would have been kind of hard when they’re a little too done.

    I know what you mean though about getting so engrossed with Triberr. You can spend a lot of time there looking for great content and new people to connect with.

    I love how they continue to improve their site as time goes by. I’m part of so many tribes now that it’s hard to keep up sometimes but I love the connections I’ve been able to make and it’s fabulous place to meet new bloggers. Okay, maybe new to me but you know what I mean.

    Anytime anyone wants to write about Triberr I’m there. Great share and glad the brownies were saved. LOL!!!

    You have a good week Lisa.

    • Thanks Adrienne, I really needed to get my mind away as I wrote this post – being creative can do that for me as you know what I’m going through right now with my mom. They still tasted good after though 🙂 Me too with the tribes, I just checked and I’m in 65. I love finding new blogs there all the time, we would never see them otherwise in the busy chatter over at Facebook, Twitter or even Google+ these days. Have you tried one of their paid features? I just did one post in the top of feed for $5 and I did receive a lot more shares. I may go with the new Prime Lite program later in the year. I just love their customer service too. Thanks for coming by Adrienne and I’ve got to get over to your place – as you can imagine I’m a little behind these days. Have a good last week of January there Adrienne.

  • Hello Lisa,

    Sadly, I have not been using Triberr…and the main reason is because I have got my hands quite full with many other content promotion options that time has become really of the essence.

    However, from what you have here, it’s a great place to be…and I shall surely consider it in the coming days.

    Always,

  • Hey Lisa,

    The title of your post is powerful enough! It dragged me to your blog with great power! To be honest, i came across this post through Triberr. No doubt Triberr is the best blog reading tool.

    It also works as a traffic generating source for me. I really like the notification feature and share button on read window.

    By the way, I feel sad for those brownies 😛

    -Siraj

  • Hi Lisa,

    I totally agree with you about Triberr – it IS my second Feedly too because of the number of blogs one comes across, though one cannot go through and read them all – I wish I could 🙂

    I love the large variety one gets, especially being a part of over 70 tribes now – it’s just awesome and I owe a lot to Triberr for the tweets I get on my blog. Not to mention the number of new connections we all tend to make. I still have to explore the notifications in detail – I did see my 70 odd when they recently started it, but again, it’s not easy to keep track if you have large numbers. I like the way they keep bringing about these new changes on Triberr indeed.

    Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend, and take care of yourself 🙂

    • Hi Harleena, I know what you mean about reading them all. I try to go back but boy it’s not easy. I love the variety too – some that I would not otherwise have come across. Wow, over 70 tribes? I’m in 65. I’ve been thinking of going with their premium services in the coming year. I did do one of the posts in top of the stream for $5 and it did make a difference, it got a lot more shares. They sure don’t keep it stale on Triberr. You are welcome and thank you Harleena, doing my best 🙂 Have a great new week there.
      Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

  • I also haven’t been very active on Triberr of late, but I also hope to catch up soon. Triberr campaigns sound interesting. I would love to use them for my startup, but they are still beyond my reach. May be one day. I have also noticed that the more tribes I join, the less engaged with my tribemates I am. This reminds of the good old days I used to visit your blog quite often. Now there is just so much happening in my stream. 🙂 I believe in building relationships and hope to find a solution to this problem.

    • Hi Churchhill, I did apply for one and haven’t heard back yet. It’s been just over a month. I hope to be able to do one as long as it’s in my niche. I’m in a lot of tribes and I’ve been engaging more in the stream. It’s a good problem to have Churchill. We do what we can with the 24 hours in a day we have 🙂 It’s not always easy with life’s challenges along the way. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Have a great day.
    Robert Singh recently posted..WeChat for PC (Windows 7/8) Free Download GuideMy Profile

    • Hi Robert, oh yes, you will notice an increase in visits and find more bloggers via Triberr. IT does take time to happen so don’t expect it immediately and give it time. Too many quit before they reach success. I would say give it 3 months at least. I can be confusing at first but with their many recent updates it’s probably easier than when I first started there over 2 years now. Let me know if you have any questions and don’t delay 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend Robert.
      Lisa recently posted..Don’t Look At Your Triberr Stream While Baking BrowniesMy Profile

    • That really does make the two of us, Robert. I have heard, read and been preached to about the benefits of Triberr…yet, I have not found time for it. I think it’s more of a familiarity thing – we both are too familiar with our regular channels, especially the ones offering good results.

      But I have made up my mind to join Triberr at last (which blogger hates more traffic?) You should too.

      Always,

  • Hi Lisa,

    I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the title of this post! I knew exactly what it was referring to before I started reading!

    I love Triberr for discovering new bloggers and awesome content. I have come across some really, really AMAZING stuff over the months and have been able to make some valuable connections too.

    It’s interesting that you mentioned about the new share option while you’re reading a post. I noticed this too, however I’ve found that it never works and that I still have to share from my main feed. But seeing as I had to do that before anyway, I can’t say that I’ve been bothered too much. Although, I suppose it would be good to have the other option working.

    There are still aspects of Triberr I’m yet to familiarise myself with, such as Campaigns. They sound interesting though and I’ll be sure to check them out.

    Thanks for the overview and updates, Lisa. have a great weekend 🙂

    Regards,
    Glenn

    P. S. I hope the brownies didn’t get too burned!
    Glenn Shepherd recently posted..Ten Must-Visit BloggersMy Profile

    • Hi Glenn, glad to hear it made you laugh. I had taken that picture as it happened and I needed to get my mind of things so I thought I would do a little creative post about Triberr. I did sign up for one of the campaigns and I am still waiting a response – just over a month now. I did share one post that way today via Google+. Maybe it doesn’t always work and they have to work on the bugs. I am with you on finding great content there and new bloggers. I also recetnly tried the promote a post to top of stream for $5 per day. I did get more shares via it. Something to try once in a while if you don’t mind spending the $5. The brownies still tasted good 🙂 You are welcome Glenn and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
