Launched in 2005, this amazing site is the brainchild of founder Frank Warren. It’s an ongoing community mail art project to which people mail in their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Some of the secrets are chosen to be posted on the PostSecret website, and others are used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits. The only condition is that the secrets people send in must be true and must never have been spoken of before. The postcards Frank posts up are selected from thousands – some are inspirational, giving hope to people who identify with the secret. Some are funny. Some are shocking. Others are just downright sad. But once you’ve dipped a toe in this anonymous community, you’ll find it hard to leave! The site is updated every Sunday with new secrets, and you can also register for a ‘live’ PostSecret event – Frank Warren is apparently coming to Australia this year. We can’t wait!
