Yesterday, I signed up for a Digg account in order to start sharing the interesting links that I find. Basically, I’m going to submit my morning roundup links, a few of the best ones from The Simple Dollar, and a few more links each day that I find interesting.

I also have some big news… but that can wait until a bit later today.
