Stumbling around the Internet

If you have been under a rock, were just rescued from a desert island or have been nappin for the past 20, you have not heard about Stumble!

Stumble is the equivalent of a remote control channel changer for the Internet.

Install the Stumble Widget in Firefox (you do use Firefox, right?)and click away on the Stumble bar.

Whoo hoo! One new random website after another!

OK, so how does it work? (Or maybe you need some more information before you are convinced to try it?).

First, when you create an account on Stumble, it asks for topics of websites you like to visit. I chose Marketing, Business, Web Development and a few other obvious choices.

Some of the other choices Stumble lists are bit more esoterical. Witchcraft, Anarchy, and so on. I think as Stumble grows they will find some cool niches based upon Stumble tracking which will really help them determine their audience.

So you have the widget and your profile setup. Done, right? Wrong! With Stumble, that's not all!

Because you have website preferences, Stumble wants to match you up with other Stumblers and have your own social network! Add you picture and personal facts to your profile and you can make some new online friends.

But wait! There's more! Where does Stumble get all of those great sites?

Stumblers can submit them! Using your Stumbler tool bar, you can add sites and vote on sites others have submitted. It brings a whole new meaning to the web.

What more could Stumbler have?

Stumbler recently started allowing companies to advertise their websites using the Stumbler tool. No, Stumbler won't take over your browser. Rather, when you click on the Stumbler widget, you may come across some sites which were paid for placement rather than placed organically by a fellow Stumbler. (Hey, at least Stumbler isn't AGLOCO or some other get paid to surf nonsense!).

Try Stumbler out and have fun stumbling around the Internet!
