On the eve of my 1000th StumbleUpon discovery...

Friday, September 13, 2013 , 0 Comments



Seven years ago - holy shit how has it been that long - a beloved colleague turned me on to StumbleUpon. As far as Internet fads go, I have to say this one stuck. Several Gmail accounts, a few abandoned WordPress blogs, countless Facebook posts and a handful of Twitter accounts later, I'm still Stumbling aimlessly in the Internet abyss all these years later.

My persona there is a relatively unknown entity named Chiqui with a Ben Bernanke photo and a bio of "I'm not going to say I told you so but I told you so...." because on Stumble, you can be whoever you want to be. You can scan through porn or business news or whatever it is you've checked as your desires and it's fine as long as you surround yourself with like-minded Stumblers who send you stuff you want to look at in your darkest Internet hours when you can't find anything to read.

Submitting my 999th discovery tonight, I realized I have to make my 1000th discovery something big. Something better than self-promotion or good porny Tumblr posts or music I listened to long before the band was cool and you caught on.

So... what should my 1000th discovery be? I'd like for it to be something great but knowing me, I'll probably just self-promote and Stumble my own shit because, hey, why not?

Regardless, thanks for the last 999 discoveries and seven years, SU, it's been great.
