Stumble In

I have a new favorite website.

I debated long and hard over whether or not I should encourage navigation away from my own blog (please don't leave me!), but eventually I decided the public must know about this.  In all likelihood, the public already knows, but I didn't, so tough noogies if you're reading old news.

In an attempt to expand our horizons, my office wisely organized "Digital Illumination Week" to get us traditional media planners into the digital mindset.  My head is now crammed with information concerning the world wide web and how to best use it to market our clients.  While I found the sessions involving online capabilities and metrics informative, the biggest takeaway was a brief mention at the end of yesterday's session.  Our instructor charged us to check out one new website a day.  This seems like a daunting task.  Where do I start?!  Our instructor then provided us with a helpful hint:

Intrigued?  You should be.  Bored at work?  Say hello to your savior.

When you enter the site, you provide your interests, click "start stumbling", and wait to get lucky as it sends you to a random site.  My first "stumble" was a usage chart on Spice Advice.  What do ya know?!  I love to cook but never know what to do with the spices in my cabinet.  How handy!  Thanks, Stumble Upon!

Once a day?  I think I'll be checking out new sites once a minute, thanks to this nifty tool.

And no, when providing your interests there is no checkbox for porn, so don't think you're gonna get lucky like that...and get your mind out of the gutter!
