Blog: PostSecret

Filed under: Uncategorized — readthisduringclass @ 1:45 pm


Everyone has heard of PostSecret by now, probably because of the best-selling books. They collect postcards that people mail in to them, and the idea is for people to anonymously admit their deepest, ugliest secrets. Sometimes they’re happy or uplifting but some of them are incredibly dark. Reading these can be very moving at times, but at others they’ll make you laugh (“The best part of him breaking up with me? Now I don’t have to shave my pubes.”).

I was glad to learn that I don’t have to buy a big hardcover book now every time I want to browse through some of their submissions. It’s all online now (including information on live events they host around the country), and from the looks of it they update the site pretty often with new postcards and emails.

Who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to send them something.
