How To: Stumble!

www.stumbleupon.com

Stumble upon is basically like a blog where all you do is post things that you've found or want people to find on the internet. It is fascinating what people post here. It could be a cool story, news article, picture or website. In our case, it's both a picture (of your item) and a website.

First thing to do is to set up your profile and settings preferences. Change the colour of the background of your page, pick your page layout and say as much (or as little) about yourself as you like. Oh, also select your favourite things or catagories you are interested in.Once you are done this, you are ready to Stumble or submit articles to be Stumbled upon.

First, click on your home button. This will take you to your home page. From here you can do many things. Your page will probably be blank as you do not have any favourites yet. You will fill this with things you "like" and things that you submit to be Stumbled. You can check out what is new, you can check your inbox, see what your friends have submitted recently, check out your groups and, of course, set your preferences.

We are going to Stumble. To do this, we post a new:
  • Site
  • Blog
  • Video, or
  • Picture

Most of what we are going to submit will be sites. Click on site. This will bring out the request for the site URL and any description you wish to add. Select the URK you wish to submit (like an item in your store) and copy and paste it over. Add any description you like. Hit the "Post New Blog" button. You can pick a category you wish to submit this item into, but beware, it might limit the views you get. You must rate the item as either adult content or not and then you Thumbs up it! That's it! You've Stumbled your first item!

It does get addicting - be warned! It is very fun though, to sit and watch the numbers add up on your Heartomatic!
