OMG You Made That? Answers to "Digg for Girls"

sweethype.jpgAs you may have noticed, dolls, my list from last Tuesday calling for a Digg for girls got quite a response from readers who agree there should be a girls' club to rival the Digg boys' club. Along with those comments, I did get two suggestions for websites people like you and me, who are pining for a girlie Digg, have actually gone out and made. That's why this week's "OMG You Made That?" is dedicated to the designers, coders, and all around web-savvy people who actually got off their butts and implemented their ideas instead of just writing lists about them. So, without further ado, we've got:

1. Kirtsy.com. Readers had a lot of good things to say about Kirtsy in the comments. Like Digg, it's the kind of site you submit news and then vote up your favorite links. Just to indicate the girlie nature of the site, the current top stories are "Ok, cupcakes, where is your Diva?!" and "Empowering Women with Breast Cancer." Unfortunately Kirtsy's numbers are still pretty low, as evidenced by the fact that it only takes 15 votes to make it to the front page. Go on and change that by joining the site!

2. SweetHype. This one is actually made by a Heartless Doll reader, Kim Phan, who wrote to me: "I saw your posting "5 Reasons Why I want Digg for Girls" and I totally agree with you. The reasons you listed were some of the many that inspired me to create Sweethype, a site for women to post links to articles that they find interesting, inspiring, etc. We want this site to be a girls' club of sorts, a place of our own online." Phan also mentioned she's looking for suggestions on how to improve the site. That means you should give it a once over for yourself and see what you'd suggest!

Well, what are you still doing here?

Just checked out the site. It doesn't seem to have a girlie edge, though it could be useful simply because it lacks that's hard-to-enter core group of users like Digg has... Thanks for the link!

Hello!?
I actually had a quick question and wasn't sure if someone might know if they have

ever encountered this. Have you ever seen a tattoo artist use magnifiers while they are

doing a tattoo? I would think it might be helpful while they are doing the fine points of

a tattoo that require great detail. tribal armband tattoo designsMaybe even those magnifying glasses that

your dentist wearing? Anyways wasn't sure if anyone ever encountered this?

I've been dealing with the same girl for the last 4 years. Very beautiful young lady, working on her Master's Degree. Last week I went to the doctor for my annual check up . So they got a sample of my blood and I told the physician to check it for everything possible . Come to find out, I have a STD . I am pass IRATE! I've been dealing with the same lady for some time now... what the hell should I do ? I already asked her has she ever been with someone else during our time together. I am completely amazed wth this situation....... :-(
