Have you ever been a little bored and picked up your laptop or tablet and wanted to randomly search the internet? You pull up Google and then…nothing. You draw a complete blank and can think of nothing at all to google! At least nothing you haven’t already searched for a million times over. It’s always the same old same old sites for me, Facebook, Twitter, my favorite blogs, and then I start to run out of places to surf. I want to find some little pot of gold at the end of the internet rainbow, I want Google to just be like, “Hey here, this is what you want to read, right?” And then I’ll say, “Oh Google, thanks! You know me so well.” Ok anyway, so here it is. I’m probably the LAST person to discover this and I’m upset no one has told me about this sooner. It’s probably the greatest thing I’ve found since Pinterest. www.stumbleupon.com Have you heard of this??
Here is the dealy: You go to Stumble Upon and you pick a slew of things that you are interested in. Books, Babies, Fashion, Fitness, Health and Nutrition, Dogs, whatever. Then, you hit this little Stumble button on top of the screen and it randomly gives you websites that meet your interest. If you like one, well you hit the little thumbs up and if you don’t, you hit the thumbs down, sort of like Pandora, but for random information. You can make up lists like boards on Pinterest. It shows you what is trending, what’s popular, you can filter your random stumbles for a particular topic. It’s great. It’s way better than any other type of stumbling I’ve done before, which usually was the result of too many beverages. Here are some of the interesting things I found by stumbling last night:
Stuff about Babies:
How cute is this??

Ok, that’s all for this week folks. I’m sending you off to stumble on your own. I’d love to hear what sort of fantastic finds you run into.
Also, if you’ve already heard about this site, please just let me think I discovered it for all of my friends even though I found it from someone I follow on Twitter…
