Conquering Digg

Yesterday I read a post on that basically accused the social news site of being a cliquish, elitist club that only votes for its top submitters. Well, at the time of this writing, my post, "2015 is Almost Here and I Don't Have a Hover-Board," is number 8 on Digg's top ten stories of the day. I have never before had a post receive more than 7 or 8 diggs and I'm definitely no "top submitter." The system works. Anyone who believes otherwise is just frustrated that they haven't written anything that caught the Digg community's attention.

Certainly such an achievement deserves some sort of celebration. Tomorrow I might have cake. Thanks to everyone who dugg my story! I hope it'll happen again some time. Until then, see you in Google Reader . . .? please? maybe?

EDIT: 1:10 a.m. It's all over. I'm off the Top 10 list. The highest I got was 6th place. That was a great ride. People may still digg it, but, barring some huge influx of diggers, that post is probably not going to see the Top 10 list again. Again, thanks, people!
