Yesterday (correction: it was Tuesday) my mailbox nearly exploded with friend notifications from digg.com. I have been an isolated member of digg since 2006. I was there, but I did not have any friends. Somehow someone out there in the RE blogosphere ignited a friending spree on digg, and now, 24 hours later, something like 50 RE bloggers out there have found me and I have found them. Someday I might even have as many friends on digg as Jeff Turner, who has more friends than anyone just about everywhere.
I could turn this into a rant about the number of sites I am now networking with other RE pros on, but I will save that for another day. Right now I need to update my status on facebook, leave some comments for Linda Davis on AR, recommend Brian Brady on LinkedIn, see if Rich Jacobson has posted on myspace lately, check out Kristal Kraft's pics of the ballgame on Flickr.com, find out if Mitchell Hall has answered any new questions on Trulia Voices, and check out Teresa Boardman's Squidoo Lens. I am tired just thinking about it. Better sign up for Twitter so everyone knows I am tired.
Oh yeah. If you haven't added me yet to your digg friends here is my profile link. Sorry they don't give points.
Update for Missy Caulk and everyone else: Digg.com allows people to vote on the best stories of the day and promote them. Getting to the first page of digg lhas been known to crash people's sites because it brings in so much traffic. I don't think any real estate blogger has ever made it to page one of digg. The most popular posts tend to be tech related. digg is divided by categories so most real estate posts would fit under the business category. It is kind of a way of finding the most popular posts out there in the whole blogosphere on any given day. Lots of blogs outside of AR have a little row of icons at the bottom of the posts and one is usually for digg so that the reader can vote for the post on digg or "digg it."
