If you haven’t yet encountered PostSecret in your wanderings through the information ether, it’s worth a look. PostSecret is a site where all are invited to anonymously send in their darkest secrets in the form of a decorated postcard, and the best selections are added to the site weekly. The sentiments range from humorous to bizarre to depressing, and are often accompanied by some fascinating artistic expression.

It’s been around for awhile now, long enough to have a traveling exhibit, and a book. Postcards don’t stay on the site for long, and there are no archives available… probably to encourage frequent visits.

The PostSecret invitation:

You are invited to anonymously contribute your secrets to PostSecret. Each secret can be a regret, hope, funny experience, unseen kindness, fantasy, belief, fear, betrayal, erotic desire, feeling, confession, or childhood humiliation. Reveal anything – as long as it is true and you have never shared it with anyone before.

See the site for the legalese, and for the address to send your postcard to once you’ve wrung your heart out upon it.
