Inspired by Digg

Racking my brain to fill up this weeks blog schedule with a big hole for Monday, I turn to Digg, that great arbiter of what people like on the web.  In eager anticipation because its a big internet world out there with millions searching and Digging exceptional bits of information, I enter the letters I n s p I r a t I o n and wait expectantly.

I have to say in explanation that I am new to Digg.  But I know the buzz. Digg is great.  Digg identifies the best items floating around the web and shares them with all the Diggers.  And I know when you are a blogger, it is your goal to be dugg by Digg.  I am still waiting for my recognition as I develop my blogging muscles and toil in the background but I remain confident that my turn will come when I am good enough.  My Digg numbers will someday be sky-high.

Now back to my screen as the top items categorized as inspiration by Digg flash before my eyes.

The very best items classified as inspiration by Digg today!  I list just six for your consideration. If you want more – or the links go here:
