Instead of just celebrating love one day during the month of February, we thought we'd try doing it for the entire month.
We planned to highlight people, brands, and products we love throughout the entire month. This led us to a month-long campaign of #sharethelove. These were posts on our social media channels where we'd give a shoutout to some of our favorite brands, products, and people.
We gotta tell ya -- it was really enjoyable.
The experience opened our eyes to the amazing power of kind words to lift others up. Spreading positive vibes is so much more powerful than tearing others down.
The world is hungry for positivity.
We need more of it.
There are so many incredible people all around us doing awesome things. People are sacrificing their own interests for the interests of others. They are seeing huge gaps and filling them with great ideas and products. They are pouring themselves into creating the best products they can. They are sharing information that truly changes the lives of those who encounter it.
It was such a great experience to spend a month reflecting on all this.
The last official #sharethelove shout out we'd like to give is to you. We truly appreciate you because you're giving us your valuable time and attention while you read this blog. We do not take it for granted, and we sincerely thank you for hanging with us.
We are not going to stop sharing the love. But, we'd like to commemorate this experience with a tribute post featuring all the #sharethelove posts on Twitter we had the pleasure of sharing. Enjoy!
We have lots of love for lots of products, brands, and content. This month we’re going to share a few of them with all of you. Let’s spread positive vibes and show appreciation to awesome people who create awesome things. Join us!
