If you are serious about blogging, marketing and promoting your posts should be one of your primary goals. Stumble Upon helps promote your blog posts and connect with other bloggers.
In the blog world, this has a number of meanings. One way that you can network is by joining a blogger forum where you can meet and interact with other bloggers.

In this way, you each reach a whole new audience.
