Website tells your secrets to world

Interesting website…

Warning: once you start reading these, it’s hard to stop…

Wow. I am awe-struck by the beauty of the cards and of the starkness of their confessions.

Self-absorbed BS.

But hey…thats just my opinion.

Just like Forumosa.

But hey… thats just my opinion.

“Self-absorbed BS” ? Maybe.

But for some reason some of the messages touched me. And that’s enough for now.

Thanks for the link, Cola.

I sometimes get naked and sit on a plate of doufu and sing Melancholy Baby.

Of course it’s self-absorbed stuff - that’s half the point.

Online confessors are like flashers. They exhibit themselves anonymously and publicly, with little consideration for you, the audience… One online confessional, though, breaks the mold. At PostSecret, found at, the confessions are consistently engaging, original and well told. How come? The Web site gives people simple instructions. Mail your secret anonymously on one side of a 4-by-6-inch postcard that you make yourself. That one constraint is a great sieve. It strains out lazy, impulsive confessors.

New York Times - May 31/2005

The blog isn’t as great as the article suggests but it does highlight just how easily it could be to start a winning blog if only you had a good idea and the gumption to see it through. Anyway worth a look.


Great minds eh? I tried exactly the same thing last night, except I got TC’s comment slightly wrong - I thought it was “self-indulgent”. :laughing:

Fantastic stuff. I assume the website is run by the FBI?

I guess the New York Times isn’t such an esoteric rag after all. :blush:

I ate a whole can of Pringles, plus three tennis balls.

Sometimes I wish I had a scooter.
