Atheist Bloggers, Join Our Tribe

Are you an atheist blogger? That is, are you an atheist who writes a blog in which you address atheism and related topics? Are you active on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Linkedin? Would you like to connect with other atheist bloggers and possibly drive more traffic to your blog? If so, I'd like to invite you to join a new tribe. Huh? Let me explain.

You may not have heard of it before, but Triberr is a specialized social platform for bloggers that aims to bring bloggers together around common interests to facilitate communication and reciprocal content promotion. We now have an atheism tribe on Triberr, and I think it would be cool to see if we can turn it into something useful.

Admittedly, I am very new to Triberr and am still learning about how it works and whether it is a worthwhile investment of time. Here is what I have figured out so far that might be of interest:
  • Triberr is often described as "a social platform that helps bloggers work together to share each other's content." You can think of each tribe as a community that reflects a common interest (e.g., atheism).
  • Triberr is designed to work with Facebook, Twitter, and/or Linkedin and allows you to share content with any or all of these networks easily. You need to be on at least one of these networks for Triberr to be worth your time and more than one is probably better.
  • Sharing content across social networks can be done automatically or be scheduled.
  • When you join a tribe, you can add your blog's RSS feed to make your content more visible to other tribe members. Blog posts from tribe members appear in a stream where other bloggers can share them across their social networks with a click.
  • Triberr works on the principle of reciprocity (i.e., tribe members are more likely to share the content of other bloggers who share their content). According to Jennifer Tribe (, "The core of Triberr’s value proposition is this: By sharing and being shared in return, you multiply your online reach, tapping into the social networks of other bloggers in your space."
  • Triberr allows comments to be made directly in the stream, providing a forum for tribe members to interact with one another.
Here's another take on some of the potential benefits and uses of Triberr for bloggers.

While I am still figuring out how Triberr works, I like the idea of a community of atheist bloggers sharing information and promoting each others' work. If you are an atheist blogger who is active on social media (Twitter, Facebook, and/or Linkedin), thinks this sounds interesting, and would like to give it a try, I hope you'll consider joining our atheism tribe. Maybe we can turn it into something worthwhile.
