Digg Sale

By Pete | @kingpetey | 16 Jul 2012

With the sale of Digg.com last week it seems like the end of an era, a site which before Reddit, Facebook and Twitter is where I spent a lot of time online. A site where ImAFish got its first big break into mainstream blogging.

Digg 'died' a couple of years ago with the failed launch of v4 sending many of the users to Reddit however I would say a lot of my success on Digg back in 2007 has motivated me to keep blogging today and has been crucial in the work I do on other blogs including Iraq Business News and more recently Love Shrewsbury.

It's always sad to see such a key website lose its way but without Digg (and many of the concepts behind the site) the Internet would be very different today.
