Postsecret might have been around for a while, but it’s something that I haven’t blogged about. This is for a couple of reasons, but not least as I didn’t feel I had a forum in which to express what I really felt about the site. Now that I have more of a place to discuss it, I’d like to draw your attention to it.
Postsecret is based on a fantastically simple formula. Simply, people are invited to post in their secrets – whatever they may be. Some are funny, others are sad but they are all genuine secrets from genuine people – people like you and me.
I’ll say straight away that I’m in love with this site for a few reasons. There’s nothing quite so good an idea as a simple one – and this perfectly matches that formula. When an idea is this simple, why complicate it? The other reason I love this site is that these secrets resonate. I am sure that you’ll see one that will break your heart and if you buy the books you may well see a secret that you share with someone else.
As a final note, I will say that some of the postcards that have been sent in are not suitable for children. For those of you who are interested in sharing your secret, you can send it to Frank at this address:
