Digg is probably one of the most entertaining and informative social network around. And yet, it seems like few people in my network use it.
Digg is a site where you share links with friends. Lets say you find a great blog post on writing. You simply submit the link to Digg and it will cast your vote for that post. The more votes, or Diggs, the more likely people are to see that post.
Why is this important?
Not only do you find cool news and information via Digg, the more friends you have, the more people will see what you Digg. Get your friends and blog followers to Digg your content, and those votes move it up the ranks and put it in the line of sight of people who have never heard of you.
It is a fast, easy, subtle way to meet new people, find news and develop relationships based on content that ultimate lead to sales. It continues your online brand and offers one more way fans can touch base with you.
At the bottom of each Market My Novel post, you have the option to Digg. If you are new to Digg, start an account and Digg a few of your own posts to get the hang of it. Then, start making friends based on content choices and you are good to go.

Firefox users, you can get the free Digg toolbar for your browser to make Digging that much easier. It uses a pop up screen that shows you newly Dugg content. I always find new stories or blogs with that little Add On.
