A few years ago, I decided to make a blog post that resembled a very popular website, PostSecret.com. If you aren’t familiar, PostSecret is a community art project in which random people like you, mail in post cards containing deeply personal confessions.

Ambergris, in case you didn’t know, can make the […]
