What's wrong with my Digg promotion?

First off, I thank those who digged my Peekaboo posts hack. But, I am a little disappointed with the response I got. After spending countless hours helping hundreds of people apply this hack since last August, I get only unsatisfactory response for the one favor I asked for, that only takes few minutes :(. If you patiently browse through the comments in that post, you will see that I have resolved most of the issues that people faced while trying this hack. Or is my post not worthy of promoting? I don't think so especially when useless things like this can appear in the Digg main page.

Things to do when you are bored at home

To top it all, somebody even buried my link! (Bury - Digg's facility to express dislike). I really don't understand what's going on! Of course, it is a bit selfish on my part to promote my blog and expect lot of new visitors from Digg (and yeah I have adsense also at the unnoticeable corner of my blog). But, I have a lot to offer for any visitor who has a blog with Blogger. It is a win-win situation in business terms. So, what's wrong with my Digg promotion?

Digg my Peekaboo posts hack

Update: This is no longer needed as some jerk buried my submission in Digg.

I need a favor from all those who are using Peekaboo posts hack. As many of you know, Digg is a popular community powered website where one can submit interesting stories, useful links etc and others will digg it (i.e. vote on it) if they like. I have submitted the link to my peekaboo posts hack. If you think it has made your blog look better, please click the Digg button in my sidebar to vote for it. If you don't have a Digg account, I would appreciate if you can create one (it just takes a few minutes). Out of the 600 odd subscribers to my blog, I am sure at least 400+ are using this hack. If my submission gets 200+ votes, it will appear in Digg homepage and grab the attention of the huge Digg crowd out there. This could bring a lot of visitors to my blog and of course, they will benefit from the hacks here if they use Blogger. I hope you can take time to do this small favor and I thank you in advance.
