PostSecret

I have always wanted to be a blogger. I have just never truly had the initiative to finally get one off the ground. This semester two of my journalism classes have blogging as required assignments and finally I am forced into it. Don’t take that the wrong way however, when I say “forced”. It’s still a good thing because Lord knows how long it would have been until I jumped on the bandwagon. Now this also means I am obligated to keep up regular posts until it becomes a natural part of my daily routine. Since blogging is not an integral part of the journalism world, it’s time for me to step into the 21st century.

I’ll start off by sharing something very near and dear to my heart: PostSecret.

For those who are unfamiliar with PostSecret, it has been an ongoing project started by Frank Warren in 2005 where people mail in anonymous homemade postcards containing secrets.

Every Sunday, Frank posts a new set of Secrets to his blog for the reading and commenting pleasure of fans. PostSecret is also a traveling art exhibit where thousands of received postcards are displayed in art museums across the country for patrons to come and view. PostSecret cards have also been published into several compilation books based on different topics such as God, Death, and Life or The Secret Lives of Men and Women which can be bought at any local Borders bookstore or Amazon.com.

Many find PostSecret a safe haven to share things they have never spoken of or shared with anyone else. I myself have never sent in a secret. I’m too afraid someone, somewhere will know it was me. I truly admire the courage it takes to the thousands that have shared their stories with Frank and the world.

One of the many post cards Frank Warren receives daily for the PostSecret community art project.
