The great thing about blogs is that even though you can orient them towards a certain topic, veering off-course is never too crazy or unexpected. Besides, when you’re your own boss, who’s gonna stop you?
Anywho, some of my readers may or may not be familiar with a little site known as StumbleUpon. If you don’t, check it out. But be warned: One does not simply stumble one more time. In a nutshell, you give the site your interests and then it randomly brings one webpage up at a time that it thinks you’ll like. From there you like (or dislike) pages so it can offer similar and better selections for you.
I only just started using it a week ago and have liked over 100 pages. Many of these have included fat-inducing dessert recipes that will probably destroy my weight maintenance goals. But there are quite a few pages which offer something quite different and interesting. And since I love to share finds–even with complete strangers–I thought I’d offer another recurring feature for my blog which I simply call “Weekly Stumblings.” Given how much I love the site and the fact I still get a bit of free time from my job, it shouldn’t be too tough to keep these coming. And it means I’ll have at least one post to provide each week.
And these will be posted every Monday so that the few followers I have might have something to help brighten the worst day of the week. So here are the first of many Weekly Stumblings:
