The New Kid on the Block

Hello, everyone. My name is Blake Elens and I am the newest blog writer for Stuff We Like. Few of you might remember me from the older versions of SWL, where I was a writer for the movies and video games pages. For those who don’t know who I am, let me tell you a little about myself.

As previously stated, my name is Blake Elens. I am 18 years old and I reside in Pensacola, Florida. I am a freshman at Pensacola Junior College, where I am majoring in Computer Science, and I plan on attending the University of Florida after next year. I am the Crew Trainer for a local McDonald’s restaurant, where I have been working for 3 months. I play baseball, basketball, and football recreationally with my friends and my hobbies include movies, video games, and computers. As far as family goes, I am the youngest of three children, 1 brother and 1 sister, and I live with both my parents.

Well, that’s pretty much me in a nutshell. I look forward to working for SWL again and I hope my contributions will positively affect this website’s success.


If you’re a FireFox user, like I am, then you might know one of the best features is it’s great series of extensions. Well a great little feature has recently hit the fox and I suggest you check it out. It’s called StumbleUpon. It’s quite a simple little extension. You install it, either from their site, or from FireFox’s extension site, and input what you’re interested in. From then on you simple hit the “Stumble!” button in your toolbar and it’ll give you a site that fits those preferences everytime. If you like it, hit the thumbs up, if you don’t, hit the thumbs down. If you have a site you like a lot, like SWL, simply say “I like it!” and, if it’s not in the stumble system, it’ll allow you to add it to their site.

You just might find that sites you already use are on stumble upon and you just might stumble upon them again.
