My Love Affair with StumbleUpon

I get bored easily.  On the Internet, anyway.  I get stuck in a cyber-rut—going to the same sites over and over, checking my email for the billionth time (which I really don’t do anymore, thanks to my Blackberry), etc.  I don’t think I’m the only one with this issue.

Recently, my friend Erin recommended StumbleUpon to me, and my boredom has been cured.  StumbleUpon is an app that brings up random websites for you based on your interests.  You get to rate the websites, which will of course affect what you see on future Stumbles.  Here’s a demo of how it works.  Enjoy.

    @Sue: I think StumbleUpon is a great tool for people who are new to computers to get used to the Internet and understand just how big it is. Glad you like it.

    @8ightdaysaweek: That’s because the peeps at SU know I’m awesome, and knew that if anyone could un-bore you, it’d be me. /sarcasm. Hope you enjoy the blog.
