It’s nice when one of your posts is submitted to a social site.

It’s even nicer if it is voted, so I use a cool pipe from engtech to monitor Digg and Reddit submissions of my articles. This gives me the opportunity to vote while the stories are still hot.

If you want to go one step further, you can combine this great pipe with some feed-to-im service, like feedcrier, and you’ll be able to be notified of your site submission in seconds.

Here’s the pipe
