A Digg-Style Site Just For Photography

UPDATED: Soon after I posted the original article on a site called DiggPhotography, the site dissapeared. Then it popped up again as PhotographyVoter, so I updated the links to their site.

Digg is and interesting thing, but it’s not very friendly to photographers. There’s not even a category for photography despite it being asked for over and over again. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were at Digg-style site just for photographers?

THERE IS! I noticed a few visitors coming from PhotographyVoter this morning, so my curiosity forced me to check it out. What I found was basically a brand new site for photographers that was modeled after Digg. The site looks to be in its infancy with just a handful of submitted articles and only 4 users (including me now). But this shouldn’t deter you from joining in, or even just reading the materials submitted.

There are some pretty good articles so far, and many of them are from places I’m familiar with. The site also has an RSS feed, so you can get the new article submissions sent straight to your reader. You don’t need to sign up to read the articles or get the feed, but you’ll have to get an account if you want to submit articles or vote.

So get over there and show your support for photography. I don’t expect the site to catch on quite like Digg, but it may turn out to be a nice resource just for us.

    Looks like they’ve taken the site down (4/4 950am EST), maybe they were getting too much traffic before they were ready!

    When I click on the link to the site I get a site saying that “there is no website configured at this address”

    But the preview when I hoover over the link here on the site works.

    Weird. I was just on the site right as I posted the article. The site appears to be down at the moment, but hopefully it will be back up soon.

    I can’t imagine that I would have sent enough traffic to them to shut them down! Very weird.

    Another look at my stats, and I saw a bunch of visits from a site called PhotographyVoter. Turns out that it’s the same site that was at DiggPhotography. So it appears to be back up and running. I wonder what happened with the DiggPhotography URL — it was much catchier

    I got an email from the site admin stating why they had to change the domain. Apparently, there are issues with using the word “digg” in the domain. Darn. It was kind of catchy too.

    how about using DigPhotography instead? Would they still have problems with Digg? Afteral, Digg hasn’t invented the word “dig”.

    No problem, It looks like I’m competing with “God” for the top ranks (haha). I’m glad to see the site is taking off… new members every day.
