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
