Welcoming the Followers: Triberr edition

It’s that time again – time to welcome my new followers from the week. You definitely can’t build a network alone, and you can’t build a career alone, either. With that in mind and a big boost in readership this week, I thought I’d take some time out to mention some of the folks who have been there to help – my fellow members of the tribes on Triberr.

What is Triberr, you ask? To simplify, it’s a site where like-minded bloggers can band together to share their Twitter readership by agreeing to tweet one another’s posts to their followers. It’s like a force multiplier: your reach can suddenly expand from however many followers you to the followers of the other tribes. It’s also a great opportunity to get to know people in your chosen community. Like these people!
