    I have never thought to use stumpleupon before. I didn’t even realise people still used it! It does sound like an interesting way to get traffic since it doesn’t rely on getting followers first.

    Stumbleupon is an interesting way to drive traffic to my blog. It seems to happen the most when someone likes my post on stumble upon and then I will get a day of a lot of traffic and then it trickles down. Maybe this increases over time. I am curious to see what happens.
