Whew!  We made to the end of the week!  Today I'd like to share with you three of the sites I like to visit that are just purely for fun. 

 

Postsecret.com

 

Post secret is a blog by Frank Warrent that updates on Sundays, and people send in their "secrets" to be posted anonymously - usually on post cards (some by e-mail).  Some of the secrets are funny - some painful.  All are very interesting, and I'll warn you - this site can get a little addictive.  :-)  There are also live events, which are appearances and presentations by the creator of the blog - the schedule is at the bottom of Postsecret.com.

 

I Can Has Cheezburger

 

No, that's not a typo - that's actually the name of the site.  Readers send in photos of their cats, and everyone captions the photos.  It's a lot of fun.  The site administrators have implemented a brilliant strategy for generating back-links to their site (those are good for page rank, remember?), by allowing bloggers and social networkers to embed the captioned photos on other websites, like this:

Dog lovers, you haven't been left out, there's also I Has a Hotdog.  There's also Totally Looks Like (for photos of people and things that look like other people and things - much funnier than it sounds), The FAIL Blog, and Graph Jam by these folks, as well as a few newer ones - check out the tabs in the header of any of these sites to explore.

 

News Busted, by Jodi Miller

 

These bi-weekly (or so) videos are political satire by Jodi Miller and the crew at CNS News. You can subscribe on YouTube, or visit Newsbusters.org and see the latest Newsbusted in the right sidebar.
