Other Things On the Internet Besides Social Media


I’m pretty sure that most of us can agree that the INTERNET RULES! Being able to access so much information with a click of a button is crazy when you really think about it. Yet most people spend most of their time on social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc. What I’m going to share with you all today is a more productive way to spend your time on the internet.  I’m sure some of you have already heard of this website, but probably have long forgotten about it… (which is unfortunate because this is a really great site!). The website is called StumbleUpon. This my friends, will open up an entirely new world for you. It’s super addicting once you start too. When you sign up, you get to choose from several categories and add them as your interests. Once you’ve done that, all you have to do is stumble! You’ll start to see different websites as you stumble based on your interests. According to google there are about 861,379,000 websites as of January 2014. Who would have known that so many cool websites, games, and videos existed. Not only is stumble upon a great place for entertainment, but it’s a great learning tool as well. Let me tell you, I’ve read some really great stories that have put me into deep thoughts. One of my personal favorites discovered through stumble upon is, “The Egg” by Andy Weir. That story will stick with me for life. I’ve also seen great artistic work, and cool computer games that I wouldn’t normally go out searching for. I encourage everyone to sign up and give it a try. It’s free, and doesn’t take long to sign up at all. So open up a new tab and get to stumbling today!
