I Got StumbleUpon-ed Yesterday, Greetings to New Visitors

I was surprised to see my site stats shoot through the roof yesterday. Apparently, a Stumbleupon user linked to my short post, “Scientific American on Boosting Your Intelligence in 5 Easy Steps.”

If you aren’t familiar with it, StumbleUpon.com is a site that “takes you to web pages, photos, and videos handpicked by your friends and like-minded people.”

I am very happy to have new visitors to DynamicSubspace. If you are new here, you may consider checking out my other high traffic posts in the box to the right.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.

    How does Stumble Upon work? I need to find like-minded young people. Another blogger said SU would be useful. But I don’t know if I should get a account or a user of SU should do it?

    I’ll check it out.

    I love stumble upon, thanks Jason for the link. I get tons of hits from it. My busiest day was Memorial Day weekend that I have ever had like 2,000 in one day. Congrats to you.

    Hi Jackie,

    Thanks for commenting on my post about Stumbleupon. I also received about 2000 hits on my Stumbleupon day! I have known about the site, but I unfortunately have not participated in the fun. I need to return the favor for others now.

    Best, Jason
