Postsecret.com

One of the most popular blogs online is Postsecret.com. The originator of the blog developed it to showcase the 40-50 postcards he gets everyday. He is a medical researcher who has always been fascinated by postcards -- especially the fact that everyone can read what's on the back of them. So last fall, he placed blank postcards in restaurants, movie theatres, and stores with his address and instructions to create a picture on the card, write a secret wish, confession, regret, or whatever else, and mail it to the address shown.

He has received thousands of postcards. Some of them are a little disturbing and gross, but some are really, really interesting. But what I like best about the project is that it involves community art. I'm really impressed with the images some people have created. Take a look by clicking on that link above.

The site is updated every Sunday.

You can read more about the project here.

Thing I'm thankful for: Snow.
