#FollowFriday: Dino Dogan

By: Gini Dietrich | March 11, 2011 |

One of my very favorite bloggers is Dino Dogan. He’s extremely irreverent and very, very witty.

I’ve known him only for a couple of months; learning about him when he wrote, “Social Media Examiner Finalists Reviewed: Find Out Which Ones Suck and Which Ones Are Good.” You know anything with the word “sucks” in it is going to attract me. Thankfully we weren’t one that sucked, but even if we had, the way he handles his criticism is an art.

His main blog, DIY Blogger Net, is full of non-echo chamber advice and opinion, tips and tools, and videos on developing your digital footprint, creating content, and “dominating” your space.

I say his main blog because he also writes 2WheelTips (about biking – motorcycles, not my kind of biking) and Dogan Dogs. I haven’t quite figured out what the latter blog is about (other than dogs) because it’s a lot of hilarity that sometimes have nothing to do with dogs.

He has a lot of really good freebies on his site, including three eBooks, on his blog. You can subscribe there to get updates when he writes new books (which, BTW, is a service he offers). He lives what he preaches, with consistent blogging, videos, audio, and books.

He also just founded Triberr. I haven’t had enough time to play around with it yet, but it seems to be a way to let your online friends know about your new blog posts without the annoying “please RT this” DMs you get from some. If you’re interested in Triberr, let me know. I think I have a few invites.

So follow Dino on Twitter, read and subscribe to his blogs (whichever one fits your fancy), and start chatting with him. He’s always worth some intelligence and a good laugh!

When you head over to his blog (DIY Blogger Net) to check him out, make sure you look at his comment policy. I love it!

Yay! Happy Friday, @dino_dogan , you rock! Great choice @ginidietrich ! I just love tagging everyone in the comments. I digress. I so enjoy Dino's blog and his ever irreverent posts and his truly supportive nature. Can't wait to learn more about Triberr (apparently, it's headed to my inbox soon?) and continue to get to know @dino_dogan .

Good pick Gini and am sorry to admit, I haven't checked out @dino_dogan blog yet.. correcting that oversight now. :-)

YaY! I can comment again :))!

Dino ROCKS! And that's all there is to it!

He's one of those guys that tells it like it is and manages to do so with a ton of charisma and confidence.

I especially love the deconstruction or Reverse Engineering commercial videos that he does. If you haven't seen them - they're an absolute must. He literally takes you step by step or frame by frame and tells you what they're doing, how they're dong it and if it's effective or not.

As for Triberr - very cool indeed! Just choose your tribe mates wisely :).

Gin - an excellent choice for this week's #FF! Nicely done and well said!

Happy Friday

Cheers

ok hope this works. my first official comment from my droid2 on spinsucks. makes this a double big day for you Dino. of course if this doesnt post then your day is only half as stupendous but that is better than not stupendous at all! plus at noon your thermos of margaritas should show up. @ginidietrich sends one to every #FF in fact that is how #winner charlie sheen fell off the wagon i heard. from partying at the arment-dietrich offices

What a great endorsement, Gini!

I've come across Dino a few times, but now I am going to make the effort to get him know better.

Thanks for #FF!

Ahh! Dino you're everyone's friend!

Great friend, had the opportunity to know him and he have guest post on my blog as well. Well deserved spot for Dino.

Yes, Dino is a non-echo blog and his advice seriously breaks from the other 'write authentic content' blogs out there.

I am really impressed by how great he is at video posting, writing and podcasts, he masters all three forms of posting and actually makes it look easy. I wish I had half his talent when it comes to posting.

Dino the man, Dino the man with the plan, he also introduced me to Triberr and it's a great tool to gather steam behind tweets with like-minded people.

So yep go Dino, although I wrote my bio in the third person ( I know Dino), I am still a big fan of this super talented blogger, whom I actually met right here on Spin Sucks.

Follow him now, @dino_dogan

@Griddy Thank you Griddy...I've been using that phrase with Triberr a lot lately. Choose wisely...maybe we should change the tagline from Double Your Traffic to Choose Wisely lol

@AskAaronLee Hey Aaron, great to see you hear my friend...I model myself after you for guest posting approach. #PerfectHost

@John Falchetto @dino_dogan Thnx John...do you wanna know my secret? Here it is...I dont mind sucking at any of those formats. And when you're not concerned how great it has to come out, you're free to do whatever feels right or at least the best you can...and thats plenty good enough.

So...just dont be afraid of sucking lol

@dino_dogan I didn't do that yet. I'm in one tribe for now but might consider starting one eventually.

@dino_dogan I know I said it to you in my email - and it's kinda true ;). I'm glad you like it - royalty fees of course hahaha. Kidding. Actually - you could find a way to merge those two.

Choose wisely and double your traffic.

OR You could do something with the whole tribe mate/mating thing and how your traffic will "multiply" LOL. Okay enough of the madness.

I'm just excited to be able to comment here again - but if I keep going with my suggestions - Gini is going to have Livefyre ban me again lol ;).

@ginidietrich @faybiz Gini, you created your own tribe? I had no idea, thats awesome. You can create up to 3 with 7 tribesmen each.

@dino_dogan @ginidietrich all these changes. Little flames next to names. The Twitter/FB option. I think you should have every post here load into your Twitter feed and your A-D FB Page Wall.

@EricaAllison I just sent another one. Some are getting lost apparently. We're looking into it. Let me know if it doesnt reach you.

Your @att.com email account, right? thats the one I should be sending the invite to, correct?

@Griddy Im sure you're waiting to see more of Triberr in action. Thats good. But you are an amazing connector and Triberr is made for people like you.

You can really do a lot of good for a lot of great bloggers by bringing them under your chicken wing :-)

@faybiz It's been a crazy week (what's new?), but I've had no one threaten me so that's better than last week.
