The Digg.com of PR blogging Blogging

newPR_screen.jpgIf you look past the gritty facade of prblogger.com, you’ll find a swelling archive of PR and marketing tips from one Stephen Davies.

His latest post describes a PR site that uses “non-hierarchical, democratic editorial control.” Like the immensly popular digg.com, New PR is host to user submitted, democratically featured links (the difference in this case being that New PR focuses solely on PR links rather than general technology).

If you’re bored by the latest sports scores, weather forecast, or classifieds ads, then why not take a look at some news that’s specific to the PR world?

    I have my doubts about whether or not the digg model can work in the real world.

    Digg version 3.0 comes out soon and it will be available in multiple categories besides tech stuff.

    Newsvine (newsvine.com), which was all the talk a while back because it was going to be a user submitted newspaper, you don't hear much about anymore.

    If the difference between the 'real world' and the 'digg world' is user base, then I'm inclined to agree with you.

    I mean, with thousands upon thousands of visits to the site every day, you only see some few-hundred diggs on featured articles.

    Comparatively, I think New PR would need a much more dedicated user base to become successful.

    As for Newsvine, I find the information they feature to get stale quickly.
