The Versatile Blogger Award

Holy shnikies! I’ve been given the Versatile Blogger Award! YAY!

Thanks so much Cynthia over at The Truth!

The rules for this award are:

  • Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them.
  • Tell 7 things about yourself. (see below)
  • Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they’ve received an award.

Seven things about Coffee with Cheryl Are:

  1. I started Coffee with Cheryl so I could have a creative outlet, feel less isolated, and join what has turned out to be an awesome community of bloggers. 🙂
  2. I would be a straight-A student in my bachelor’s program if time weren’t such an issue.
  3. My entire house is a disorganized mess!
  4. I’ve been thinking about a domain name change lately.
  5. I’m going to be 40 soon. *gasp*
  6. My husband’s truck broke. He’s driving my truck to and from work now. I know how he treats vehicles, so I’m guessing I’m going to have to write off my truck and buy myself a car – which we can’t really afford.
  7. I’m working on setting up an online store for my woodcarvings, illustrations and designs.

I can’t believe I passed this up the first time!

Today I received a second private message from one of my followers on Twitter – Maria over at Flair by MariaS. Here’s what it looked like…

Since this was the second time Maria invited me, I became intrigued. (It also helped that one of our writers – Nicole – over at Off the Deep End mentioned that Triberr is the latest and greatest blog promotion tool.)

So, I accepted the invitation, and holy crap…I cannot believe I didn’t accept the first one!

Here’s how it works…

  • You have to be invited.
  • You have to have a Twitter account.
  • Once you accept the invite, you need to link your RSS feed to your account.
  • Blog just like you normally would.

Your blog posts are then linked automatically to Triberr and all your Tribe members automatically tweet your posts to all their followers. That is just awesome with a side of awesome sauce! Even better – it’s totally free!

After joining, I went on to read Maria’s blog post about how she found out about Triberr, and read this…

Earlier today, as I was reading through my favorite blogs, I noticed an article by Miranda from Moms Bookshelf & More describing how in only 2 days she had 62 new mentions on Twitter, 16 new Twitter followers, 26 new Blog followers and over 700 views.   And I kept reading her post because as a blogger we are always looking for ways to increase our following, right?  And I was hooked!

My brain pretty much exploded when I read that!

So, if you’d like to join my tribe, leave me a comment or tweet at me, and I’ll send you an invite as soon as I can! Oh, and be sure to check out this article Maria was kind enough to link to!
