StumbleUpon | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's bookI usually get some 300-400 views on my posts. There were some exceptions, though. A couple of times, I had a few thousand views out of nowhere. Or, at least, that’s what it looked like. After a brief examination, I realized the extra visitors had come courtesy of StumbleUpon.

Which is why I was sad to hear that, after 16 years, StumbleUpon shut down on June 30, 2018.

Before posts and tweets, before snaps and pins, StumbleUpon was providing endless internet entertainment with just the push of a button. In its 16 years, it served up nearly 60 billion stumbles to over 40 million Stumblers, and infinite hours of “woah, cool” moments.

Welcome Mix

However, there is a silver lining. The people behind StumbleUpon, have started up Mix! On Mix, people can build shareable collections of their favorite finds across the internet: articles, videos, podcasts, and more. As you curate the web, your saves will turn into meaningful recommendations for others in Mix.

And for those of us feeling nostalgic, we can always take a journey back in time with StumbleUpon Time Machine on Mix!
