How I Use StumbleUpon on Triberr

Explore StumbleUpon

Many bloggers are noticing that StumbleUpon is bringing additional exposure to their blogs and websites. Those of us on Triberr have the benefit of sharing each other’s content via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, StumbleUpon and LinkedIn. Today I am ONLY going to speak about using StumbleUpon on Triberr because I have been noticing that some of my fellow Tribemates are potentially missing the StumbleUpon boat so to speak!

Let’s face it, we are all busy, aren’t we? Since we are living in this fast food society, any additional work is an added load for some. I must confess that when I am sharing my Tribemate’s posts, if the StumbleUpon  icon has not been submitted, I rarely have time to do it for them. The author of the post is the best person to decide which topic and tags their post falls under. So, in my meager opinion we should all be submitting our own posts as soon as we blog them!

“This is Howie Do It” via Triberr! Sorry I have had that song in my head for the past week!  (Of course you can submit your own blog post directly from your blog! Just in case you didn’t, and you are already on Triberr or live on there as I do, you can also do it via Triberr!) Here goes, so simple, go to your Tribal Stream and click “Load Social Buttons”:

Click “Load Social Buttons”

If Michelle’s post, “Almost Wordless…” were mine, I would click on “Submit” as soon as it pulls onto the stream!  See below:

Click Submit

Then this little page should pop up! As you can see not everyone is a Saint and would do this for every post! Usually you just want to Like, Stumble and roll to your next task!

Fill it out, please!
Once you fill it out and your Tribal Stream is refreshed, there should be a number 1 showing (where the 3 is here in this picture). In Jane’s case below, most likely she submitted her post and then 2 other people have “Liked” and “Stumbled” it, that is why there is a 3! 

So now when we come along to share your post on StumbleUpon and it has already been submitted by YOU…, then this little pop up will show up, click on “I like it!” then click on “Stumble”! So easy, we are done sharing it on StumbleUpon!

    I'm going to have to start submitting my own posts and see how it goes. I'd read somewhere that SU penalized you for submitting your own posts, so I haven't been. But if you're doing it then I shall too! Lovely tutorial :)

    Great article about StumbleUpon. Where would we be in today's world without Twitter, Triberr, StumbleUpon and the new generation of blogging?
    It's hard to believe how rapidly things can spread with a keystroke. One other thing a person can do when they sign up for StumbleUpon is download their toolbar. That helps too!
