What I do understand however, is that if you manage to push
these pestering questions to the back of your mind for a second,
you can find some pretty awesome stuff out there; fashion blogs,
online shopping (so good, but so bad), handy tips for getting wine
stains out of the carpet, step-by-step recipes, blogs and much,
much more. One of the sites aiding our generations' addiction,
dependence and all round love of the web is StumbleUpon. I stumbled
upon StumbleUpon in the back of a lecture theatre at University
after a friend recommended it. I wasn't quite sure what was
happening at first and then the next thing I knew I was in love.
John Green's quote from his book "The fault in our stars"
accurately describes my relationship with StumbleUpon; "I fell in
love the way you fall asleep, slowly, then all at once".
So, how does StumbleUpon work and how will it change your life?
Read on only if you have copious amounts of spare time to dedicate
to your new addiction (which I'm sure you don't, but I can
guarantee you will make time).
Firstly, head to www.stumbleupon.com and sign up for free, then
select the categories you are interested in (the more, the better
as these determine what you stumble through).
Once you've selected these categories a menu bar will appear at
the top of your screen.
You only need to pay attention to one button on here, and that's
the 'Stumble!' button. From here on every time you click this
button you will be directed to a new site that StumbleUpon thinks
you're interested in (this is where your categories come into
play), and 95% of the time it's spot on.
I can confidently tell you that I have spent many an hour
stumbling through what the StumbleUpon world has to offer and I'm a
better person for it! I have found online boutiques I otherwise
never would have known about, hilarious videos that have made me
laugh until I cry and delicious recipes that I never in a million
years would have conjured up.
So what are you waiting for? Get stumbling and begin your fast,
tumbling, head over heels fall into a loving and long lasting
relationship with what the World Wide Web and StumbleUpon has
waiting for you.
