New things on my toolbar?

I woke up this moning and my computer was running a little slow so we ran a virus scan on it. Nothing came back. That's good, eh?

Then after it restarted I noticed that there was a new icon on my Google Toolbar. It says "share". So I clicked on it to see what it was and it says, share this page using ...and there's a list of different sites you can use. Blogger, StumbleUpon, FaceBook, Twitter, Gmail, Digg..ect...

I've heard good things about StumbleUpon so I decided while On I would click on the StumbleUpon icon.

It took me to the StumbleUpon site and I decided to sign up for an account. Then it asked if I wanted to install the toolbar, whcih I didn't so I don't have a new toolbar just a little stumbleupon icon on my toolbar next to the new "share" button.

Anyway, I clicked on the stumbleUpon button again to share the cahewrecks site with others and I was able to. It said that 150 others had also added it to StumbleUpon.

So I decided to see what else I could do with stubleupon. I went to one of my articles, the latest one and clicked the Stumble button. I was able to add it. Now lets see it I get more traffic to my article because of doing this. That would be super cool if that actually happens.


  1. My virus checker picked up some trojans yesterday. I have NO idea where they came from because I've been head-down editing all weekend.

    I'll look forward to your report on how this works for you.

  2. So far the stumbleupon icon on my toolbar is working pretty good. I like seeing what other people are recommending to me. Oh and Shelley...I stumbled your blog today so more people will see it too. :)

    Ken ran a virus scan yesterday but there wasn't anything on the puter. I just wish when a virus, malware or whatever is founf it would tell you what website it's from.
