StumbleUpon is Back!

A few weeks ago, I blogged about Bing and how it had broken into the top 5 referrers of traffic to this blog. Today, I am happy to report StumbleUpon has entered that space too.

A few weeks ago, as a result of a former Ning colleague joining the ranks of StumbleUpon (SU, among friends), I decided to give it a shot again. I installed the extension to help me stumble upon pages as I visit them.

So far this month, I am seeing SU behind approx. 5% of the traffic to my blog. Are you seeing anything like this?

Top 5 Sources for Blog Traffic

I had never seen it anywhere until today… I am talking about Bing as the #1 source of traffic to my blog with a whopping 30% of the traffic vs. a little over 20% now coming from Google Searrch!

See the screenshot showing all traffic sources since May 1:

Apparently, I am not alone and Bing may be a better search engine after all.

(Almost) 8 years blogging…

What does it mean? Don’t know. Nearly 2,000 posts later and 3,000 days later, blogging just feels so normal… kinda like brushing my (slowing fading hair) or having a cup of coffee.

I’ve had my ups and downs: been through periods of posting 3-4 times a day (back in 2006) and times of posting 3-4 times a month (mid-2009) when I was deeper into Twitter… well THAT much hasn’t changed!

If you read this, do you have any favorite posts from the past 8 years?
