DIGG it!

ok - i promise i'll stop posting stuff about social media/internet marketing...soon. But this is funny. In Michael Brito's post - The Holy Grail of Social Media: Conversions or Conversations?, he makes a good argument about how Digg is not the end all, be all for link building and awareness using this brilliant analogy:

"Digg is a one night stand. You submit your content, get it on the home page and reap the rewards of a ton of traffic, links and more traffic. Then you wake up, reality kicks in, the fun is over and perhaps you sneak out the back door before she wakes up."

I know, I'm a total dork. I promise my next post will be about something cool - like commentary on last night's episode of "The Hills" or where I ate dinner this weekend. Wait - those really aren't cool either...

Hey Sarah - thank you for referencing my post. The analogy was fun to think about and I could have expanded even more but thought against it. ; )

Thanks again, from one dork to another.
