I love PostSecret.com

If you haven’t seen it already, you should check it out. PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.

About PostSecret:

Three years ago, Frank Warren began PostSecret as a regional art project in Maryland.
People were invited to submit postcards that, through words and art, detail a personal secret.

The messages were originally part of an exhibition in Washington, D.C. Today, the PostSecret phenomenon includes a Web site which has received more than 100 million "hits" and hosts over 3 million visitors every month, has spawned four New York Times bestselling books and has resulted in more than 180,000 secrets being sent in from around the globe.

Warren receives about 1,000 postcards each week at his home address (13345 Copper Ridge Road, Germantown, MD 20874), and he reads every one. Each Sunday night, he posts 20 selected cards on his blog.

"We all carry secrets," Warren says. "Each of us has a secret that would break your heart if you just knew what it was."

At a first glance, PostSecret seems like a website for the depressed to convey their very morose messages. That’s what I thought anyway but I judged too soon. The resulting collection of visual secrets; intimate, humourous, heartbreaking, sometimes disturbing are all strangely compelling. I definitely recommend giving the website a look.

On a side note, I loathe Miley Cyrus. Her stupid ‘Party in the U.S.A’ song has been stuck in my head for the whole damn day.
