I understand Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to be effective social media to promote a blog, but I've read different things about StumbleUpon. There are plenty of articles on the Net that it's a good idea to use StumbleUpon, but the common thread is that you should participate on StumbleUpon to do this, to develop a following; and not just promote. I've also read it's not a good idea to use StumbleUpon. I can't remember why at the moment; I've always felt it attracts too much brief traffic, so you get no decent time on page from visitors. Don't know though. What do you think of, what do you know about, and what is your experience with StumbleUpon for promoting your content? Also, my feeling is Tumblr could have potential, especially since you can use hashtagst there. What do you think?
I tried using StumbleUpon early on in my Hubbing journey and didn't see much result from it at all so I eventually just gave it up.
