As I stumbled Craig Swain’s post about HMDB.com making the April 2011 issue of Civil War Times (congrats Craig), I started thinking about other Civil War buffs out there and whether or not they use StumbleUpon. I’d like to see what others are stumbling since I will probably be interested. If you have a StumbleUpon account and you stumble Civil War items, leave your StumbleUpon username in the comments section below. Mine is bschulte1978. Let me hear from you and I’ll add you as a friend.
Any Other Civil War Buffs Out There Using StumbleUpon?

I stumble all my posts. I get zero traffic from so doing.

Brett, regarding HMDB, you are welcome. I find it personally fulfilling to provide such a resource.
Regarding StumbleUpon, I use it on occasion. When a well followed stumbler out there marks a post, I do see site visits increase. But overall, no more so than Twitter or Facebook. I think StumbleUpon’s value is more as a place to survey information within a given topic. But as such it is not as complete compared to true search engines.
My Stumble is 5thNYCavalry. I’m new to it, so I’m still feeling my way around, trying to figure out how to Stumble my posts.
My Stumble name is VanishedHand
So far I haven’t found it to be very helpful when it comes to connecting with other bloggers/readers/archivists/etc with similar interests, but I’m hoping StumbleUpon will become more “intelligent” as it grows and evolves. In the meantime, I’ve found a lot of funny comics, memes, and misc. weird stuff I didn’t even know I was looking for.
