Many people ask the same question - but it is really that simple.
Post Secret is a website created by Frank Warren in 2005 that asks people to send Warren postcards with secrets written on them to be posted anonymously for all to read. Warren describes it as a "group art project." The web site has become an Internet sensation, and Warren has received hundreds of thousands of PostSecrets. Send in your PostSecret postcard; what are you hiding?
Here is a guide of how to send them to the website:
#1. Have a secret that you want to share. The secret can be funny, sad, something quirky about you, something you feel depressed about, something that's been on your mind. It can be anything! Just remember: Writing down a secret that's bothering you might have the effect of therapy.
#2. Write it on a postcard. Many people choose to use a postcard that has some connection to the topic of their secret. Be creative and modify your creation in any way, as long as you have the message and the artistic images on the same side of the card. Post Secret warns not to use a postcard with copyrighted images, as they may not be able to display them on the blog or in a compilation.
#3. Mail your postcard to:
13345 Copper Ridge Rd.
Germantown, Maryland 20874
#4. Know that by sending a postcard into Post Secret, you grant them (as quoted from PostSecretCommunity.com) "a perpetual, royalty-free license" to use your material in any way they choose.
#5. Visit PostSecret.com and see if your postcard is posted on the blog, updated daily. Inspire readers! Post a secret.
#6. Buy Warren's PostSecret books, which are collections of postcards on a certain theme that have been submitted (I have brought 3 of them so far! all of them undoubtedly great!) The books have these titles: "PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives," "My Secret: A PostSecret Book," "The Secret Lives of Men and Women: A PostSecret Book," "A Lifetime of Secrets: A PostSecret Book" and "PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God."
