A few weeks ago, Tadeusz Szewczyk stumbled and reviewed one of my posts. Immediately after that, I received a lot of traffic from StumbleUpon users. Such a thing has never happened to me before.


When it comes to traffic from social networking sites, BlogCatalog has always been my main supplier of traffic because I have a number of great friends that side. But, as of now, StumbleUpon has overtaken BlogCatalog by far. As a result, these days, I like spending more of my leisure time stumbling than ever before. And every day, I make more and more StumbleUpon friends, some of whom are top stumblers. You can take a look at my StumbleUpon page, if time is on your side. If you have not yet joined StumbleUpon, I encourage you to join and install their tool bar on your PC. Add me as a friend, if you can. Start enjoying the world of social browsing.

Yesterday, I exchanged messages with caile-girl who is a top stumbler. In one of the messages, she told me that she would have loved to add me as her friend but she can’t just because she has reached the StumbleUpon limit of 200. But she went on to say that there are 24 ghost friends (people who were mutual friends who no longer have SU accounts anymore) in her network and she cannot replace them with live friends like me. She further said that this problem has been going on for a very long time such that most stumblers who have been on StumbleUpon for a long time experience it in varying degrees. This is too bad for a dynamic and addictive social browsing platform of StumbleUpon’s caliber. Can someone at StumbleUpon, please, rectify this anomaly now! It is seemingly small things like these that put off members:(. Do not get surprised when some folks start their own StumbleUpon clone. Go and ask Digg! They now have to battle for members with Mixx.
