A few days ago, one of the internet greats died (or, at least, was retired).
StumbleUpon was, for me, one of the best sources of internet traffic that I could have asked for. In fact, it was the source of some of the greatest “viral” moments that this personal blog has every experienced.
And SU’s long-term impact was felt for many, many other sites as well. After each viral event I’d break through a traffic ceiling and that ceiling would become a new base-level. It was a nice bump and I enjoyed every ride.
I’m going to miss StumbleUpon; I don’t plan on using Mix, so, I guess that’s the end of an era.
