I consider myself somewhat of an expert when it comes to the internet. I've explored all kinds of websites, from games, to articles, to ways to make money, to social networking sites, to torrents, and on and on and on. I'd say that pretty much any time I'm home and not asleep, I am on the computer. I even watch my favorite TV shows and movies online. Basically, I'm an internet junkie.

So I would like to share with you one of the greatest internet tools I have ever discovered. Perhaps you have heard of it, but aren't too familiar with the details. Well my friend, you are missing out. You are truly missing out on discovering what the internet has to offer unless you are using StumbleUpon.

StumbleUpon - as in www.stumbleupon.com - is a tool that allows you to, well, stumble all over the internet to find things you would never have found otherwise. In fact, it is how I discovered this website. The concept is simple. You sign up (free and easy), and mark all the things you are interested in from a huge list of categories. Then, you hit the "stumble" button. You will automatically be directed to a random website, tailored to your specific interests. Sometimes you'll stumble upon a simple picture, sometimes a recipe, an article, a video, a gaming site... the possibilities are endless. When you get to a new site, you can either mark it as thumbs up - you like it, and want to see more things like it; or thumbs down - it's not really for you. You don't have to mark anything, of course, but doing this helps make sure that you get websites even better suited for you in the future. I have been a stumbler for a while now, and I almost never come across a site that doesn't interest me anymore.

If you're bored at any point, I recommend that you try stumbling around for some new content. You are sure to come away with knowledge, jokes, and images that you would never have found on your own. Stumbling is a great way to kill time while finding out what the best of the internet has to offer!
