The short answer to your question is: it depends. Not every website/project requires the same amount of work.
In my case study, I write about how it took me 551 hours of work to score $419.21 in income with my first AffiloBlueprint site.
With the hindsight I learned after this case study, on another site it took me 9 hours of work to score my first sale: no back links, just one page of content (most of the hours were spent in research).
The amount of work you need done depends on your chosen niche, keyword, and competition.
If you ask me about these items:
1. Article writing: I spend an average about 2-3 hours to research the topic, gather market data (eaves drop on online conversations) and write the content.
2. Article Submission/ Web 2.0: not much or not at all. One successful site I have has only 8 Web 2.0 properties linking to it, with content that is spun to 60-70%. It takes about 4-5 hours to do this on my own.
3. Blog Commenting : none, I don't do this at all, but I'm trying it as a test with one of my sites to see how efficient they are.
4. Forum Commenting: none, this one I don't do at all, but you can use it to target highly targeted traffic, providing you can find the right thread that is highly relevant to your site.
5. Video Creation and submission: Yes, around 4 hours to create and upload (most of the time is spent uploading). I have a successful site that has 3 videos on it, in fact the videos rank #1, #2, and #3 on their own.
6. Web/Blog Directory Submission: I don't do this
7. Social Media Posting: Post each time you have new content.
As you can see, I am a heavy believer in speed and efficiency. I want to make sure that what I do works, so that I don't end up being busy for being busy's sake.
I hope this helps.

That is a very low bounce rate, but then again, you're not wanting them to navigate away from your page, right? I guess if you feel like it is unrealistically low you could do more research just on Stumbleupon & see if you can figure out the reasons behind it. Are you using their "paid discovery" advertising? We'd love to know what you find out...if you've uncovered the secret formula for getting people to click through instead of click away. :)
