Confess, Not All Ideas are Complicated.

I spend too much time trying to think up the next new thing. I guess it's a just an intellectual hobby. I haven't taken a look lately at the Technorati Top 100 Blogs until today and noticed Post Secret has climbed into the 3rd spot at the time of this entry! He passed Kos!!!!

Look at that site. There's no fancy coding, no comments, Blogger template-out-of-the-box, but it's an awesome idea; kind of a pictorial version of my other favorite: Group Hug.

When an idea is good, it's good. Sophisticated execution with behind-the-scenes tools help but Post Secret is just one of those ideas that can't be contained.

I applaud its creator.

I'm with you on that. Even though I'm sure that most of them are fictitious I think the idea was a GREAT one. I can't believe the arc of popularity... like you said, "one day."

Hey Jon,
Call me gullible, but I think most of PostSecret is real. It's a lot of effort to go to in order to mail a handmade postcard. Grouphug, on the other hand, is a pretty easy submission. I think lots of people try their hand at fiction on that site.
