Basic Tutorials On Improving Your Stumble Upon Blog

Stumble Upon is the most popular bookmarking site in the net for most writers. Same as most sites, the greatest challenge here is to increase subscribers and friends.

A writer-friend of mine once advised me to put some pictures on my SU blog to gain subscribers. I didn’t get what he meant at first that I paid him a visit at his site.

His site was indeed better than mine. Same as me, he has various interests but the pictures have been enjoyable. Actually, I didn’t know how he did it. I think he did explain it to me but I ended up making trial and errors instead. I have been successful though- thinking if others can do it, maybe I can too.

From 18 friends, I have acquired 50 more within a month without sending a friend request. I owe my friend big time!

So here it is. He gave me the idea and here I am sharing some basic steps to you!
  • Putting pictures on your blog

You must first set your settings to blog mode. You can find it at your account settings, under 'customize profile'. Look for the default view- there are two choices, the 'All' and 'Reviews'. Click the 'Reviews'. Save your preferences. Then you are ready to put pictures on your blog. The following are the steps:
  1. Click the picture you like then right click.
  2. Look for the ‘StumbleUpon PhotoBlog It’ and click.
  3. The syntax of the image will appear on your comment box. Just click ‘save’ and the picture will appear on your blog page.
Note 1: If you want to make a comment. You can write the comment below or above the syntax of the image then ‘save’.

Note2: PhotoBlogging can also be done with your profile page.
