BloggingZoom Will Bury Digg

Well okay the chances of that happening are about as good as a snowball's chance in the hot place. Although BloggingZoom is certainly a very viable alternative for bloggers. One thing that has always been my beef with digg is the obvious tech bent to it and it is dominated by a few very unblog like blogs. There a quite a few alternatives out there such as: Reddit, Sphinn, BumpZee, and of course BloggingZoom.

Another beef of mine with Digg is that they frown upon submitting your own content. To me this is silly. Many times I know of where a blogger has a great article they would like to get a little more exposure and being able to digg that article themselves would be a great option. I also don't see how it hurts anything. Okay so it might clog up the submissions if everyone submits their own, but they should have enough servers and bandwidth to handle that.

Well I think BloggingZoom addresses both of these things. From everything I can tell from their TOS and FAQs there is no rules against "Zoom"ing your own stuff. This is great for bloggers with a smaller audience as it gives them a chance for a bit more exposure. I do warn against submitting off topic or sub par articles. Be judicious in choosing which of your own articles to "zoom."

The BloggingZoom readers and submitters seem to be much less tech oriented and much more on blogging in general. The topics are broader than those of Digg. If you look at their popular articles you do find a good range of articles from blogs both large and small. For this I think that BloggingZoom will do well.

later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day
