Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones. Once you have tried the outstanding StumbleUpon, you will agree.
The premise here is that there are a lot of amazing websites out there that you would really, really like to see – you just have to find them. How do you sometimes find something, when you don’t even know you’re looking for it? You just stumble upon it.
Here’s what you do. Go to www.stumbleupon.com, and click the “Join StumbleUpon” button to set up your free account. Take a few minutes and check off your personal preferences – this is the key to finding websites that appeal to you.
Then go back to the home page and download the StumbleUpon toolbar for Firefox or Explorer, depending on which you use to view websites (keep in mind, I am generally against adding toolbars because they are usually useless and annoying; this one is an easy exception).
Now, whenever you open Firefox or Explorer, you will see the toolbar up there with the “Stumble!” button. Click it. Click it again. And be ready to bookmark the websites that you find interesting.
Also – sometimes you will see a website with a link that says “Stumble this”. You might even see that link on this blog occasionally 🙂 When you click that link, it adds that site to the list of StumbleUpon sites and enables other Stumblers to find it too.
