Post Secret Creator Book Signing Tonight at Vroman's

Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The premise was simple: start a blog, let people know that if they sent a postcard to a specific address with their secret it might get posted on the site.

The rules were clear: make a 4 x 6 postcard, be brief, be legible, be creative - let the postcard be your canvas.

The results were amazing: became one of the most popular blogs of all time, currently in the Top 10 of 54 million blogs. And people poured their hearts out in some very touching, sad, troubling, and beautiful secrets. Last Christmas they created a book of some of the best postcards and this winter it looks like there's another coming out.
