How To Utilize StumbleUpon

What is Stumbleupon? Similar to Pinterest, Stumbleupon allows its users to select interests and then curates random webpages and articles about that subject each time you click ‘stumble.

1. Head To Stumbleupon.com and create an account (i recommend logging in with Facebook.)




2. You’ll select your interests that you’d like to see when you stumble. (mine is set to beauty + health.)



3. Stumble a few times when you log in. this helps prevent stumbleupon from identifying you as a user who just wants to self-promote their own content.

4. To add your own content, click on your profile on the right hand corner.





5. This is what your profile will look like. It’ll show you all the links + articles you’ve added.


6. Click on add a page in the right hand corner.

Today we’re going to add ‘19 things only native west virginians understand” from west virginia university. Copy + paste the link and fill out the fields. Add as many tags you can think of. Then click ‘post.’



7. Voila! You’re done!

Keep in mind, unlike facebook or twitter, stumbleupon does not guarantee instant engagement in likes and shares. It’s best used for evergreen content + tapping into a completely new audience outside of your network (you know, people other than your mom + best friends…(; ).

Happy sharing!

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
