So, I got an email the other day from Gabrielle from Design Mom about Sk*rt.

I still haven’t had much time to spend playing around with it, but it looks really cool… and you could spend all day on it.

So, here is the Gist in Design Mom’s words..

{Via Design Mom}…
Here’s the Gist: Sk*rt is an online media ranking site created for and by women, featuring topics women dig. Sk*rt was designed to promote sites, blogs, video, products, articles, ideas, art — anything online, really — to women and to the men who want to get in our heads.
Sk*rt is basically a filter of cool stuff on the Web. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of Digg, it goes like this. Any item (site, product, idea, video, blog, article, etc.) can be submitted by anyone. Readers can vote for the items by clicking the “Love It!” button on the left hand side of each submitted item. The items that get the most votes raise up to the front of the site. It’s actually a great design, because it’s organized so that if you only have a few minutes, you can scan through what’s new, what’s highly ranked or what’s interesting to you; or you can search more specifically by category. Sk*rt features nine categories: World Wise; Mind, Body, Spirit; Out and About; Around the House; Raising Kids; Getting Dressed; Entertainment; Food; Arts, Crafts & Design.
There’s a popular section and an unpublished section. Items have to get a certain number of votes to “make it” to the popular section. Overall, it’s pretty self-explanatory, but if you’re craving more details, see our Getting Started page here and our FAQ page here.
