You're not in Kansas anymore…

Postsecret

So, Monday Madness is finally back. Hurray!

Today I would like to draw your attention to a wonderful little place called http://www.postsecret.com/. This is one of my favorite websites, and a part of my Sunday internet routine. Postsecret was founded by Mark Warren as an experiment on blogspot. The concept is this: people send in their secrets anonymously on homemade postcards. The rules are that the secret must be true and never have been uttered before.

The secrets have a very wide range from the dark and serious to the cute and silly. It is fun to see all the creative postcards people make, some of them are really clever and impressive. It is also nice to see the unity that is created through these confessions. It proves that you are most likely not the only one thinking the weird stuff that you think or having the crazy dreams that you have. The page seems to have an unwritten rule about showing solidarity.

There are five Postsecret books for sale, with an assortment of secrets. The webpage is updated every Sunday.

I recommend that you check it out, it’s a nice little pastime.

Love, Elin
