When I create a new favorite in StumbleUpon, is see two checkboxes Blog Mode and Sticky but no definition of what they mean or why I might want to use them.

What do these choices mean?

It's the difference posting a normal review of a site you've stumbled or a blog post just to shoot the breeze. The sticky option is like forums or blog welcome notices, tacked on and sitting high atop the rest of the posts.

Blog mode let's you make a post that is other than a review of a stumble - a regular "blog" entry, if you like.

Sticky mode makes a review or a blog entry stay at the top of your reviews page.

You'll also see that when you select the Blog mode checkbox, the label "URL" changes to "Title" to go along with the blog post.
