submit your blog in blog directories and the RSS feed in RSS directories respectively
It will be helpful if a list of blog directories like Technocrati and links to them is posted for the benefit of all. Problem with international directories is that they are too crowded. Indian directory like One India may be better; yet how much it helps in traffic is questionable. Can some one having a better experience explain better ways of doing it ? Good luck

Kunal, only Renie/Admin can do this i suppose. Normal users like us can't make a post sticky.

Hi, I have an idea. Given the overcrowded situation on Digg, we all need help. What better forum than this one. Say, Debajyoti, for example, has written a post that he thinks is brilliant. He could announce on this forum that he wants this to hit the Digg. We all, 4000+ of us, can them have a look at the post and Digg it (if we find it good). Or say, one of us has come across a good Indian Blog that we have Dugg (!). Announce this on this forum. The rest of us can have a go at it. On Digg I see only mostly American and European posts getting the highest number of Diggs. Let us make our population count. I personally would be glad to see lots of Indian top Diggs! Of course, only if the posts are good. So why doesn't anyone start with mine ;-)

@ Amitabh - I like the Way you Think.... Your Perfectly Right ... there are lot pro Bloggers out there who Digg + Share each other's Posts... Thus Benefiting Both of them ... Its simple All of us has to form a Group .... say of 5 Bloggers and the thing will be like... if A makes a Post B,C,D & E will Digg + Share... Similarly for B then C and So On. What Say ... Comments Please !!

Nuff Talk! Debajyoti, tell me which post of yours you would like me to Digg. Let's get this rolling.

@Debajyoti "Digg,Mixx etc are too crowded that's why we can get a lot of traffic out of it...." provided the subject matter of the posts are of international character, I mean,interest. As @Amitabh points out "We all, 4000+ of us, can them have a look at the post " can provide sufficient readership and mutual traffic if we can figure out a blog roll feed back

@ Sriharsha - Digg is a website made for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the Internet, by submitting links and stories, and voting and commenting on submitted links and stories. Voting stories up and down is the site's cornerstone function, respectively called digging and burying. Many stories get submitted every day, but only the most Dugg stories appear on the front page. link : www.Digg.com

@ Binaryday & Amitav - A simple way is to create a New Forum topic as something like " Digg This !! " etc... where Indibloggers can post their ' to be Digged ' links.
