Blogville Is A Very Interesting World!

I am setting up a company blog and in order to do so am researching the possible hosts. TypePad seems to be pretty good, as does SquareSpace. But this is not about either of them. This is about the myriad of blogsites I stumbled on along the way, which are representative of the enormous amount of creativity that calls Blogville home!

One such site is : http://postsecret.blogspot.com/

This site is all about postcards from people who are telling their secrets. It is well worth the visit. This blog started as an ongoing community art project and social experiment. The poster handed out blank post cards that requested that people put their "secrets" on the card and mail to him. He started posting them on the blog and it grew like topsy! So many secrets came in that he published a book containing the cards.

It is now sort of a phenomena. There are four books and numerous stories of people who have life altering experiences due to this project which now has a life of it's own! The site contains some of these stories and is updated every Sunday night.

Following is an example of one of the cards.

I have two books which have these postcards in them. It's fun show it to go through it with friends and figure out which ones apply to you and which ones apply to them.
