I would say that an average teenager spends way too much time on the computer and especially on social networking sites. However, I totally understand why Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and now Stumbleupon are  unbelievably addicting sites. The access that these sites gives us to everyone and everything in the world, makes us feel powerful.
My personal favorite is Stumbleupon, a site that finds random but interesting websites based on your interests. (Stumbleupon is also helpful for finding interesting sites to blog about for Etymology!) It's one of those sites that make you feel as though you have the whole world at your fingertips. You just have to think about the types of things you feel passionate about and you stumble through website after website of unbelievably amusing sites. It's almost overwhelming to stumble your way through; like a kid who walks into a candy store and is told he can have as much as he wants.
 Stumbleupon offers an amazing opportunity of exploring the world through websites. It suggests  to you mind-blowing and stupefying sites that can keep you interested for hours. These are reasons why I personally love this site. I like that it points me to new and interesting places that I wouldn't have found otherwise. It also, in a way, slowly makes you more open minded by trying new sites.


  1. this site is actually really cool and a great idea. Thanks for bringing it up!

  2. Stumbleupon is the best thing that has happened to me in the past two weeks. I just started to stumble. I loved your post!
