A blog I can't believe I have never mentioned is Postsecret. It is not only one of the most entertaining blog sites I have visited (due to the brutal honesty), but it is shocking and even disturbing at times. More to the point, Postsecret is a prime example of many of the internet/media concepts we have described, all put together. It is the opportunity for people to embrace anonymity to take the chance to express themselves in ways they are unable to normally/in person. It gives them the chance to reveal secrets and get them off their chest in a way that is both safe (to their identities) and therapeutic.
Furthermore, the site is very popular to viewers who visit not only for the entertainment and shock value, but because often, there are secrets posted that viewers can relate to. I know that many times, I have been both shocked and relieved to read others' secrets that I have in common. It is often both surprising and comforting to feel like "I'm not the only one!" In the end, it is interesting that a website that, on the surface, appears to serve as a guilty pleasure, but in turn, exchanges therapeutic vibes with things we can relate to.
