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!

To The Girl Who Mocked My Sorority

Sorority girls seem to be getting more and more backlash, but why?

To The Girl Who Mocked My Sorority,

I buy my friends? Wow. First time I’ve ever gotten that, good one.

Do you feel better now? Was it all you hoped for?

I doubt it.

I’m not the “typical” sorority girl but I’ve also come to the realization that there isn’t a “typical” sorority girl. We are all different and believe it or not we are all just like you. The letters I wear on my chest don’t make me stupid. They don’t make me a bitch. They don’t make me spoiled. They don’t make me an alcoholic. They don’t make me fake. They don’t make me a slut. And they sure as heck don’t make me any better than you.

What my letters made me is better than I was before.

Some sorority stereotypes are inevitable. Yes, I love my Big. Yes, my Littles are my life. I’m guilty of being a master with a glue gun, and I’ll admit that new letter shirts make me giddy as a 5-year-old on Christmas morning.

But here’s what you don’t know — before I joined my sorority I couldn’t speak to a group of five people without turning red. Now I help run meetings in front of 45 women. Before, I would never have had the courage to go up to a group of girls and sit with them for lunch. Now I’m actually invited (crazy, I know). Before, I struggled with my grades. Now I have sisters in my major offering help. Before, my resume was empty. Now, it's full of leadership positions and community service hours. Before, I didn’t quite feel accepted. Now, I’m welcomed lovingly into an extremely diverse group. What’s so bad about all of that?

I get it. Sororities aren’t for everyone. I’ll even go as far to say that some of us sorority girls can be a little much. But what’s the point of dissing something that you don’t understand? Next time you’re about to make a cruel stereotypical joke, think about how you would feel if someone did that to you. Instead of making fun of sorority girls, sit down with one and find out why it’s so important to her.

Sincerely,

A Proud Sorority Girl

Hot Take — The Sun Is Actually Cold

You've heard of the flat Earth theory, now there's the theory that the sun is actually cold.

There have been some hot takes that have turned out to be true, and the next one might be that the sun is actually cold now. It'll be a race between proving that the Earth is flat and that the sun is actually cold. There is strong evidence that this is the case. The people following this theory are up and coming. This might be the next hot take that takes off and gets a lot of people thinking. Just think that you're reading this first before it really explodes.

I personally first heard this hot take on the podcast Pardon My Take presented by Barstool Sports, and it just really blew my mind. Now, ever since I heard it on there I've been preaching it all the time. I think I've done my part in getting people to believe. People just need to see the evidence that everyone has been presenting, whether it is by me or someone else.

The sun is actually cold and if you need to be convinced just think about one simple concept. How hot is space? Well I can tell you that it is not hot at all. It is actually very cold, so cold that it can be around -450 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the higher you go in elevation the colder it gets. If the sun was actually hot, it would be the other way around. The higher you would go in elevation, the hotter it would be there. The only logical thought process because of this data is that THE SUN IS ACTUALLY COLD.

I know most people will just play this off as being false, but once science proves this theory right you'll be sorry that you ever doubted it. There will be sometime when everyone believes this theory and you'll be looking like the fool. I just wrote this article to try and bring awareness to this big issue going on.
