400 People might be a tight squeeze in my Cottage, but on Stumbleupon 400 fans are welcome

I just gained my 400th fan on Stumbleupon My growth rate on Stumble has been exponential the last couple of months. I think I had less that 100 fans 3 months ago. I changed the way I use Stumble and people seem to like it.

I don’t even call it a tactic, as the way I am using it is the way I would use it if it gathered no friends. Basically all I do is us it as a bookmarking tool and am very focussed on the topics I cover, which is online marketing.

Other benefits are that it’s a great way for me to inform people what I am into and what kind of material I wish to be associated with.

  • I only submit quality stuff
  • I don’t submit my own stuff
  • I am very generous, I even submit posts from people I don’t like
  • I have become very aware of what others submit
