How To Add Posts To Stumbleupon Using A Mobile
Hello readers. I’m a big fan of Stumbleupon. Stumbleupon is like an online magazine filled with blog posts and articles on all sorts of different topics. People using the app can stumble articles, rather like flicking through the pages of a magazine to find an article to read.
Posts and articles are categorised into different interests, and there are a huge range. Everything from medieval history to cat pictures, parenting to the paranormal.
One important feature of Stumbleupon is people can add articles they have found elsewhere to stumbleupon. As an avid blog reader I regularly come across articles that I like to share on there.
Many blogs have a stumbleupon button alongside their other share buttons on blog posts. This makes sharing posts to Stumbleupon really easy BUT only if someone is viewing the post on their laptop. If someone on a mobile or tablet tries using the add to Stumbleupon button they will usually be directed to this page.
This is quite annoying when you already have the app on your device, and I hope Stumbleupon sort it out soon.
However it is possible to add articles and posts to Stumbleupon using a mobile device. In the rest of this post I’m going to explain how.
How to add posts to Stumbleupon using an android device
(1) Go to the post/article you wish to add, and click on the three dots on the top right of the page.
(2) From the drop down menu scroll down and click on share.
(3) Scroll across and click on the Stumbleupon button.
(4) Click submit to Stumbleupon at the bottom of the screen.
This will bring up the mobile version of Stumbleupon’s add page. In the description box add a single word that matches a Stumbleupon interest and best sums up the post (I will include a list of Interests/Categories at the end of this post) then press submit.
How to add posts to Stumbleupon using an iPhone.
I know that the process for adding posts using an iPhone is very similar to the android version, but has slightly different buttons to click, so the lovely Louise who writes the blog WeeOhana came to my rescue and took some screenshots of how she adds posts using her iPhone.
(1) Go to the post you wish to add and click on the share button at the bottom of the screen.
(2) Click on the Stumbleupon Icon.
(3) Click on submit to SU.
(4) Put the interest/category you wish it to be added to in the interest box and press submit.
Stumbleupon has hundreds of different interest categories covering everything from arts, hobbies, sports and home/living.
In the list below I have added the interests that cover a wide range if blogs/blog posts.
- Married life
- Mental Health
- Weight Loss
If in doubt just write in the description 1 or 2 words that sum up what the post is about and Stumbleupon will categorise it.
I think this is a great way to share some blogger love. Are you a Stumbleupon fan? Do you use it to add posts or just to read them?
