Whenever you write a new post submit to StumbleUpon so others can check out your awesome post and share it with their friends.

This fairly new social network that was only born a couple a years ago has seen people flocking to it in there millions. This has helped Pinterest to referral more traffic than Google+,LinkedIn and YouTube combined which is one good reason why you should include Pinterest into your marketing.
