LGRTStumble Linky – 28/05/18

Hello everyone and welcome to another week of #LGRTStumble. I have some BIG news today that will change the shape of this linky in weeks to come. StumbleUpon is ending. Yes, after 10 or so years the designers of Stumbleupon have decided the platform  no longer meets the needs of users.

Fear not though, they haven’t abandoned us altogether. Instead they have created a new platform that is far more mobile friendly. Mix.com  is similar to Stumbleupon but is more user friendly and is more compatible with mobile devices. I will be exploring Mix over the next few weeks, and will write more about it in a blog post soon.

I will continue to stumble posts until Stumbleupon closes in the end of June, and will then switch to Mix instead. I hope you guys will be happy to make the move with me.

What is LGRTStumble all about?

I am a huge fan of StumbleUpon. As as reader it is great for finding something random to read when I have a spare 5 minutes (or at 3am when I can’t sleep!).  It is also a fantastic place to share  posts from your favourite bloggers.

Therefore this linky is geared towards StumbleUpon. People who join in will have the option to either stumble posts or comment on them in the traditional linky way (or both if you wish). I will add posts linked to StumbleUpon and comment on blogspot posts.

However as much as I love Stumbleupon I realise there are a lot of bloggers who haven’t yet got to grips with it, or are unable to use it due to being on blogspot. Therefore  we love and welcome everybody. If you don’t wish to stumble posts, just comment on them instead.

Submitting a post to StumbleUpon if you chose that option is really easy as long as you have an account. If you are using a laptop simply press the StumbleUpon share button at the end of the post. If you are using an android mobile device or an iPhone you can find out how to add posts to StumbleUpon here.

Every week I will be giving a shout out to two posts from the previous week.

The Linky Favourite

This is the post that acheived the most clicks from the linky last week. This weeks linky favourite  is from Mummy Here And There My Top 5 Apps For Kids is a useful read for all parents, because lets face it kids love technology.

The Stumble Champion

The stumble champion is the post that received the most views on StumbleUpon from the previous week. This weeks stumble champion is Daddy Poppins with an unusually serious post (for Daddy P). From Lad To Dad looks at Daddy P’s journey to becoming a dad and the mental health issues that first time dad’s can experience.
