I have been busy all week taking part in the 31 day blog challenge and thought I would have a look at some of the links on Problogger from the last time Darren ran the same sort of project. One article I read was about Social Bookmarking – Getting your Blog Noticed . I started looking around at things like Digg, Furl, Linkfilter. That is where I found some unusual and at the same time fascinating websites.
