The other day I was searching around the web looking for something to write about and decided to check out StumbleUpon.com. I had heard a lot about the site but had never actually used it. StumbleUpon is a website that allows you to select your areas of interest and then begin “stumbling” onto random web pages that fall into your interest categories by clicking the button at the top of the page.

I ended up spending close to 45 minutes clicking the Stumble button and finding new sites, pictures and videos relating to my interests. The best part was that for the most part, I found the content which StumbleUpon suggested to be very interesting to me. And if I didn’t like it, I could just click the Stumble button again and didn’t have to waste any time trying to find something new on my own. One of the funniest sites I found using StumbleUpon was the following list of real quotations from courtrooms:

If you have never used StumbleUpon before, I would highly recommend checking it out. You never know what new, interesting content you will find with it.
