PostSecret, A Non-Travel Adventure

PostSecret

Not all adventures need to involve jumping off cliffs or wresting with mountain gorillas. Adventures can be anything that are exciting and new to the person doing them.

I would like to share with you PostSecret.

PostSecret is an online community in which people anonymously mail their secrets to Frank Warren (the project creator), who uploads selected favourites to the Post Secret website every Sunday.

For the people who mail their secrets, they get to share something difficult with the world. For readers, they get a little insight into other people’s world. They can smile at the silliness of the secret or feel comforted that they are not alone. You take from it, what you wish to take from it (dependent upon the secret).

Frank Warren is currently taking PostSecret around the world to share with people in their home cities. This week they are touring the UK and Ireland. I’ve never been to a Post Secret event, but I read the secrets almost every week and will continue to do so. Next time the show comes the UK, I would still like to go.

Below are a few of my favourite secrets. I do not own copyright to any of these images and they have been provided without the authors consent. I know nothing about the people who wrote the postcards, other than the words that you see.

  • Reading PostSecret is one of my favourite things to do on Sunday. I’m going to the event in Sydney next year and am so excited!
