1. Write a Simple List
Usually somewhere around 10-20. It can be anything as long as it’s interesting and easy to digest. If you have a hobby or a field you know a little something about, chances are you’ve got a good digg or two.
2. Submit a Story About Digg
One thing about Digg and Digg users is that Digg users love Digg and they also love themselves. Naturally.
3. Show Your Unabashed Affection of Kevin Rose
When writing about Digg fails it never hurts to idolize Kevin Rose.
4. Write an Impractical Howto Article
The caveat is that the howto has to be interesting to the point of being totally impractical. The cooler the subject matter and the less likely an average Digg user will attempt it the more likely it will collect lots of diggs.
How about making that bookshelf into a secret door?
5. Rampant Industry Speculation
The end of 2006 and beginning of 2007 turned out to be a really boon year for all kinds of speculation thanks to the next generation of OSes, leopard and vista. Another popular one is the still mythical iPhone”.
Of course it never hurts to include a little gratuitous Micro$oft bashing. If you’re going to post false stories, they should be almost believable and accompanied with Photoshopped mockups.
