Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Inspired by Group Hug, it’s Speak-To.Us: A blind-blogging site for those times when your rants are just a wee bit too venomous/warped/whatever for you to post to your own domain.

Although it doesn’t say so anymore, sitetender Dave originally stated that he got this idea from Group Hug. I don’t know if he’s worried about getting flack from the other site for borrowing the idea; since a book made up of Group Hug confessionals has been published, perhaps that’s a valid concern. But I can’t see how Group Hug can make proprietary claim over the concept.

I haven’t submitted a post yet. Not sure I’m in the mood for it.

  1. I originally felt guilty because it is similar, but it’s different too. It’s not necessarily confessions. It’s just a place to blog.

    Can be anything at all. It’s also MUCH less sophisticated and may actually never take off. My intention is to probably stop archiving and keep it as a transient posting board. And, I actually link grouphug on there now. Thanks for the link though.

  2. PS. While I do stand confident it fits a different niche, you preyed on my inner catholic-based guilt. I emailed grouphug and asked them if they’d prefer I pull the site.

  3. Well, like I said, I don’t know if that’s necessary. There should be room for both of you (along with the other variants you list on your site). I think it’d be hard for Group Hug to argue that they’ve cornered the market on this. Plus, isn’t the current lag time there something ridiculous, like a week?? They could stand some oompetition in that case.

  4. I thought of this too, but I thought of it as more of a place to confess your deepest primal urges that you just can’t talk about, like killing your neighbor, or..

    I guess I can’t really talk about them either. I really need a site like this.

  5. The creator of grouphug gave me a good wish.
