blog's) URL.

4.Enter the URL and click "continue."

5.Enter the story's (or blog's) title and a short description (this is
where we put our individual blogs' URLs as well as the class blog's URL).

The Buzz Team
March 19, 2007

The Buzz Team has generated sources of information and feedback through
the internet using Digg.com. We have submitted all of the individual
class blogs, as stories, to Digg.com and "dugg" all of them! In addition,
we submitted other non-class blogs that relate to our blogs in order to
generate more traffic through backlinks.

When submitting these stories, we added our name, personal blog site, and
class blog site to each description in order to link our studies to other
related blogs out there. This should help us to get noticed and to
produce more feedback.
