If you have a blog, you should be active on StumbleUpon. You should also encourage your friends and readers to be active on StumbleUpon as well.
What is StumbleUpon? Well I recommend reading their very informative About Us page first, because really my explanation would not do it justice. Simply put, it is a window to the best and the brightest on the web…and that’s exactly where you want to be.
Here are my top ten reasons why every blogger should have an active StumbleUpon account:
- Inspiration-As you stumble along you’ll find things that horrify you, delight you, and make you think. All good things for a blogger. To write, you must have inspiration. StumbleUpon can give you excellent ideas for your own blog.
- Support-The more you stumble, the more weight your stumbles carry. This can really help out your friends. If you see a great post that you know others would love to read…you can submit it to StumbleUpon and your friend gets new eyes on their site. There’s no actual proof of this, but the more often you discover (not just thumbs up/down) great content, the more weight it seems that your stumbles carry. We’re all friends here in the blogging world, pass some blog love around by stumbling posts that you enjoy!
- Self Promotion (to an extent…)-Be careful with this one.
