Day 17 – January 17
How do you surf the web? Do you have particular blogs or sites that you follow? Do you Google certain topics and see what you come up with? DH uses Wikipedia. He looks up a topic and from there ends up with 20+ seemingly unrelated pages opened up for him to read. I have two tutorial sites (Totally Tutorials, Craft Gossip)that I look at everyday for inspiration plus my list of fav blogs. Recently, I’ve started using Pinterest to get ideas and see the web.
I’d say I don’t really need another method, but yesterday I learned about an interesting way to surf the web. It’s called Stumple Upon. You sign up, then enter what kinds of categories you are interested in, (Parenting, Crafts, Photography, etc) and then you click the Stumble button. You are then taken to random websites that fit into the categories you have chosen. You can “teach” the site to pull up more relevant websites by giving a thumbs up or thumbs down to the websites it finds for you. You can also share it on your social media sites and make comments. It’s a little too random for my every day usage, but I might use it when I’m bored of my other surfing sites.
Have you used Stumble Upon? What do you think?
