The magic that is Stumbleupon

2004-07-17 21:58 - Web

This article is about a truly wonderful website called Stumbleupon. Stumbleupon is a great way to browse the internet when you're looking for something new. The basic point is that anyone in the world can browse a site, and then vote that it's a good site, or a bad site.

All good sites are stored and cataloged. The sites you rank as bad help determine what you don't like, and all you do is press the stumble button, and a site is delivered to you. Of course, there's a lot of sites out there, and everyone's taste differs so not every hit is the best site since sliced bread. Nonetheless, I have found quite a few truly great sites that I had never heard of before thanks to stumbleupon.

They also have a great service wherein they track all your thumbs up ratings, record them, and make them available via RSS. All my suggested sites now show in the new right column on this site. It's a very nice piece of content that, now that I've written the site to grab it, I don't have to do any work for! Enjoy!

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
