Website Wonders: PostSecret

21 Oct

Since you’re on the World Wide Web right now, I think it’s safe to assume that you spend some (if not A LOT) of your downtime on the internet. (I know I do.)

I always like suggestions of great websites to visit, whether it’s socializing, reading, inspiration, or learning in general.

Because it’s Sunday, I’d like to share my Sunday ritual websites.

Basically, the concept began when one man—Frank—laid out a bunch of postcards, and he told everyone to anonymously send in their secrets. The surprising results were nothing what he expected.

Instead of plan secrets, artistic postcards full of pictures, words, and heartbreaking revelations arrived—and every Sunday, Frank uploads an array of anonymous secrets people have mailed to him.

Everything from heartbreak, to loving proposals, to confessional habits can be read. Secrets that people have never shared with anyone may break you or make you.

In fact, you may even come across a secret that is actually yours.

Visit here.

Look up his books here.

And I hope you join me every Sunday to check in with Frank and all of the secrets of this world.

One of the most shocking and emotional secrets I’ve ever seen on this website.

    I only read Post Secret when I’m having a bad day. It always makes me feel like I’m not alone out there. 🙂

    Wow, that is such a unique and fascinating idea. I hadn’t heard of the site, but will have to check it out after reading your post. That postcard kind of gives me the chills, though I kind of assumed some people took advantage of the tragedy to start their life over.

    Thought I would try a Reblog… Another fascinating site, similar in a way to the Glimpses of life post I made…
