However, there are more thousands of awesome stacks available on the site uploaded and shared by thousands of Delicious users from around the world to explore and enjoy.
Awesome Columns - is the name of one of my stacks I created at Delicious today. In this stacks are the first ten Columns I had published at Expertscolumn. After I created this stacks, I immediately shared it to Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon and Google+. Just imagine, in one link all my columns published at Expertscoulmns.com are available. If someone has clicked or visited the link, he/she will be redirected to the site that published them - the Expertscolumn.com. Another way to promote the site and all my coulumns across the Internet.
