Stumble and Be Stumbled

If you are not familiar with StumbleUpon, let me just clue you in.  It’s basically a social website where readers can find new and interesting information that they may have never would have found before.  People rate each post with a thumbs up or thumbs down and have the chance to put their 2 cents in about the post. You can also use it as a bookmarking tool. And it’s free! Here’s a great post about the best noise-canceling headphone that I found through stumbleupon.

You simply click on the thumbs up to stumble a post.  If it has already been stumbled, it will turn green.  If the post hasn’t been stumbled, a box will popup with the post url and a place for you to put in your review about the post.  You can either add your own thoughts here or paste an excerpt from the post.  That’s it!  If you want to see if your site or post has been reviewed, you can find out here.  Just type in your main url or any url of your choosing.  If you have been reviewed, you will see something like this.
