Digg Competitor Mixx Takes $2 Million Series A1

Social voting outfit Mixx has taken $2 million Series A1 in a round led by existing investor InterSouth Partners.

Mixx offers a category based social voting service that competes with sites such as Digg, Reddit and Propeller. McLean, Virginia based Mixx was launched in September 2007 with talent including former executives from Yahoo!, AOL, USA TODAY and The Associated Press. The company has regularly launched new features in an attempt to stand out in a market place with strongly entrenched loyalties to existing players.

Mixx added the LA Times to its investor group in December. Total funding to date is $3.5 million.
