You can’t go on a forum about blogging without running across word Digg. From the context, I had a basic grasp of what Digg might be but I thought I’d go visit the site for myself to be sure.

Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by our users. You won’t find editors at Digg — we’re here to provide a place where people can collectively determine the value of content and we’re changing the way people consume information online.

Apparently, Digg is another excellent way to get the word out about your blog. The advantage of Digg is that content is King. If your site offers the best entertainment or the most relevant information, then readers will naturally vote (ie, Digg it).

You can submit your own stories, videos, or images or, better yet, a perfect stranger can get the ball rolling for you by spontaneously Digging it. The more people who Digg it, the higher in rank it goes. The higher in rank it goes, the more likely it will be on the frontpage. And once on the front page, it will, of course, continue to receive excellent Diggs.

On the other hand, folks can also vote to “bury” your submission so I hope you don’t have any meanie enemies out there!

Feel free to request to be added to my cast of Friends. I can Digg it.
