PostSecret

This is an amazingly addictive, sad, frightening, funny, wondrous site. What an incredibly original idea, and even more incredible are the responses received.

PostSecret distributed blank postcards, and encourages people to send them back with a secret as long as it is true and it has never been shared with anyone. The responses are just...

Well, I seem to have to compulsively check this site a lot, let's just say that.

Just to see what people will write next. To see what people will reveal. To feel all their emotions.

How odd to be an online voyeur into the secrets of others.

What I wonder the most is this: how do the people feel after they have sent off their postcard? Is it cathartic? Is it frightening? Is it emotional?

And I wonder if they are all true.

My guess...most of them are.
