Secrets! We all have them. With whom do we share our innermost secrets? What constitutes a secret? On some level do we want people to know our secrets? Got a secret you want to share? Post it in the comments and I will do my best to protect your identity.
Yesterday was BlogSecret Day where 80 bloggers anonymously shared their intimate thoughts on someone else’s site. For whatever reason, their stories might not be suitable for the general public on their own blog.
During some downtime, I read many of the entries. Lots focussed on relationships, poor decisions made earlier in life, or issues pertaining to sexuality. I was truly captivated by the stories shared. I thoroughly enjoyed the creativity of the authors and how many of them disguised their writing “voices”. My only gripe, there’s no way for me to track down their real blog. It’s a bit of a bummer after you’ve invested some time in learning new stories about fellow bloggers. I obviously don’t want someone to ruin their cover, but I related to many of the bloggers and sadly I won’t be able to find their blogs. It’s not about me though, it’s about giving the bloggers a chance to divulge stuff which has been eating away at them.
I played detective all day, taking notes on writing style, who commented where, which bloggers used Canadian spellings, punctuation, blog profiles, etc. I was like a cyber version of McGruff, the crime dog. Thanks to all the participants for your candor. Until next time, good day and good luck!
