I’m sitting on the beach near Charleston, SC listening to the Cars on my iPod Touch. I am also writing this article from the same iPod. While that’s pretty cool in my book, that’s not what I’m writing about today.
I have used a website service called Digg.com for over a year now. Digg is an aggregate service for blogs and other RSS enabled websites. Users of Digg send links of articles that they think are interesting.
If that were the end of the story, Digg wouldn’t provide any value. But once someone posts a link to an interesting article, other users vote and comment on the selected article. If users like the article they will cast a positive vote called a Digg. If users don’t like the article then they cast a Bury vote or they don’t vote on it at all.
The amazing thing is if an article becomes popular with positive votes, the original website will be flooded with thousands of visitors in a very short period of time. Maybe your next blog article could become popular via a Digg submission.
