Post Secret Blog

post secret blog
The man behind the Post Secret website, Frank Warren talked to USA Today about the success of his blog. It says he has had nearly 30,000 postcard secrets sent to him in the post, with hundreds of new ones being sent each week.
I’ve mentioned the Post Secret blog before, but it is worth mentioning again.

Blogger gives dark secrets the first-class treatment
“Just a year after its launch, PostSecret is a smash hit. It’s the third-most-popular blog in the blogosphere of nearly 30 million blogs, based on the number of other blogs that link to it, according to Technorati, the leading blog-tracking service. Nielsen BuzzMetrics says PostSecret always is in the top 20 at blog-watching BlogPulse.com every Monday morning. It also gets 2.3 million unique visitors a month and 3 million page loads a month, according to another Web-measuring service, StatCounter.com.
This week it won a record five Bloggies in the sixth annual weblog awards, including the top prize, Weblog of the Year. Warren’s book, PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives, a compilation of 400 postcards, is selling well enough after three months that he’s planning four more.” USA Today

  1. Oh, I just read this on the Post Secret blog too. I really didnt know things were so grim in the United States. I knew a lot of people are killed each year, but I didnt know more people were killing themselves..

    “For every homicide committed in the US, two people kill themselves, but you will not see that truth reflected in national newspapers or on the local television news. Suicide is America‚Äôs Secret.”

    Americans are stupid.

    People on the other side of the world are trying to survive with less than nothing, while Americans kill themselves because they’ve lost a job or broken up with somebody. Stupidness.

  3. It has to be the dullest blog I’ve ever read in my life.

  4. It’s people in general that are stupid, not just Americans.
    While Americans might kill themselves for losing a job or whatever, people on the other side of the world are killing themselves because of their poverty or war or whatever it happens to be.
    It’s all stupidity.
    People feel so above other animals as they can fly to the moon or create a nuclear bomb. But how stupid is that?? What kind kind of stupid animal would create something so wonderful just to kill thousands or millions of other living beings?
    Create a loving world and I will change my mind about people.

  5. I probably like the blog so much because I’m nosey. Kind of like looking through someone’s diary, but with their permission.

    It’s updated each week too.

  6. If you want the world to be a loving place, start with thinking it is. Look around you because if you see life as beautiful, it becomes that. Yes, there are lots of things not good going on all around everyone but open your EYES and HEART and you will be amazed at how great life really is and how much love is around us. If you create a wonderful day everyday on your own, life around you feels wonderful.

    It just starts with believing.

    I hope nobody wants to puke at this! I just know it changed my life when I changed my thinking.

  7. I used to believe life was a hellhole, meant to be endured-until I feel in love.I was stationed in Guam, and asked God to reveal what was so wonderful about the world.A few seconds later,not a blade of grass, or a drop of ocean had changed; but my heart did.I looked at the world as a gift instead of a prison, and fell in love with creation that day. Every day since, I see the treasure around me,thru new eyes.
