It has been exactly 2 months since the unprecedented triple catastrophe of earthquake Tsunami and Nuclear crisis hit the eastern shores of Japan. Many things have changed in Japan and around the world since then, not all of them being caused by the earthquake that was recorded 8.9 on the rector scale though.
The 9.0-magnitude (MW) undersea megathrust earthquake occurred on 11 March 2011 at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) in the western Pacific Ocean at a relatively shallow depth of 32 km (19.9 mi), with its epicenter approximately 72 km (45 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of T?hoku, Japan, lasting approximately six minutes. The nearest major city to the quake was Sendai, on the main island of Honshu, 130 km (81 mi) away. The quake occurred 373 km (232 mi) from Tokyo. The main earthquake was preceded by a number of large foreshocks, and hundreds of aftershocks were reported.
The nature and magnitude of devastation in Japan had only been greater during the World War II when the atom bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The Japanese earthquake, the following tsunami and the Nuclear Reactor failure have been the most discussed news in the worldwide media during the past few days. Japan had had many earthquakes in the past . Many were devastating too. But this one was of the highest magnitude ever recorded in Japan’s or say the earth’s recorded history – 8.9 on the rector scale. But scientists say the earthquake would not have caused as much destruction as has been the case. It is the tsunami that created much of the scene of devastation that you can see even now on most news portals and TV news channels.

Yes, this is why I love stumbleUpon so much more than any other bookmarking servie available so far. I have been using both stumbleUpon and digg for quite some time now, but recently started using them to promote my blogs – Tuubol.com.
I have had mixed responses for my different articles in search engine rakings for the targeted keywords. Sometimes the page ranks no.1 whereas some of the articles rated in the first page whereas others on the subsequent pages. So, I thought of using the social bookmarking sites for increasing traffic on my sites. I started with both Stumble Upon and Digg at the same time. I got traffic from both, digg as well as Stumble Upon but the kind of response I got from both the sites was way different.
Digg.com gave me referrals for each article in the single digits whereas at stumble Upon I got hits in the hundreds. Now, the response from the bookmarks on stumble upon was quite overwhelming. Stumbleupon has helped increased the traffic on my blog from 20-30 per day to 400 in a single day. I just cannot stop bragging about how much I love stumbleupon. Here I am posting pictures of responses I got for two subsequent days from both Digg.com and Stumble Upon. You can see for your selves how different the responses were from both these sites.
