Shh -- PostSecret

Have you ever heard of I just came across it a few weeks ago, and I thought it was a really cool. "PostSecret is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website (every Sunday), or used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits. The simple concept of the project was that completely anonymous people decorate a postcard and portray a secret that they had never previously revealed. No restrictions are made on the content of the secret; only that it must be completely truthful and must never have been spoken before. Entries range from admissions of sexual misconduct and criminal activity to confessions of secret desires, embarrassing habits, hopes and dreams.” [Source]

Basically you spill your guts to this Frank guy (who has already received over 300,000 postcard secrets), and your secret may be posted or published. Obviously not everyone gets theirs posted, but just knowing you told Mr. Frank your SECRET is pretty intense.

Of all the secrets we all hold onto, it seems so crazy to be able to share them anonymously. I've been browsing through some of these posted on the site -- They are all really different. Some are funny, sad, angry, embarassing, creepy... I've never sent one, but I'm definitely tempted!



  1. yeah! isn't that crazy. I heard about something like that a while back, i'm not sure if it was post secret or not. I thought about sending something in, but I'm not sure what to many secrets ya know? lol jk.
    anyway, hope to see you soon my beloved friend!!

  2. Oh, I love Post Secret. Frank does tours on occasion and Mike took me when PS came to the Peace Center! :) Did you know that there are like 5 Post Secret books? I love flipping through them when I'm at the book store. :)

  3. I love it! I DID know about the Post Secret books!! I wanna check em out next time I'm at Barnes.. Tiff, we should totally go if it comes here again! :)
