Many of you have by now noticed the little guy with the shovel at the end of every post. It’s the icon and link for digg.com.

Apart from me saying that digg is a website that helps connect you to the content and writers/news sources that you enjoy most, digg is also a “user driven social content website,” according to their site.

They say it best here:

Ok, so what the heck does that mean? Well, everything on Digg is submitted by our community (that would be you). After you submit content, other people read your submission and Digg what they like best. If your story rocks and receives enough Diggs, it is promoted to the front page for the millions of visitors to see.

What can you do as a Digg user? Lots. Every person can digg (help promote), bury (help remove spam), and comment on stories… you can even Digg and bury comments you like or dislike. Digg also allows you to track your friends’ activity throughout the site — want to share a video or news story with a friend? Digg it!

Here’s how digg works.

In addition, there’s a great entry over at careerlinked.com about how to improve your digging and become more diggable.

So, the moral of the story is that when you read a really good blog entry by someone, go digg it. You can click on the digg icons at the end of the blog entry, or log on to digg.com and digg it yourself. The world deserves to know what you know…

On this day...
