2016 was the year I came across “StumbleUpon”. If you haven’t heard of StumbleUpon then let me explain. It’s basically a huge directory of web pages that you “stumble”.
Specify your preferences and stumble content based on anything from cooking to kids, to business and parenting. I have quite a few likes and I really enjoy the content around marketing, psychology, business and mental health.
Stumbling gives me a great mix of interesting finds that I might not have come across if I’d just been browsing the web as usual.
Here I share some of my most inspiring “stumbles” from the last few months. They aren’t necessarily recent but I love the content and wanted to share then with you!
12 Great Books (And The Perfect Kind Of Mood To Read Them In) By Koty Neelis
First on my inspiring posts list is this one, recommending 12 books. Before I got into blogging I used to spend most evenings reading. Or crocheting. Ok ok, Candy Crushing too. But that was before I started blogging! I’d love to try and make more time for reading though this year. After all, everywhere I read, says that, to be a great writer, I should read more. And I plan to make a few purchases off this list!
The Complete Guide to Psychological Tricks to Boost Purchases
Second one my list is a really interesting article about the psychological tricks we can use, as sellers and marketers, to boost sales. I started my career in sales and have since moved over to marketing but I found this article really interesting. I’m a seller at heart I think!

The last stumble find I include today is this one – 10 Competitive Analysis Tools. I’m less interested about this for the blog but in terms of my day job, this was such a useful read. There are so many links and ideas here if you are undertaking competitive analysis!
