An update sharing a link to the request so far.
Confession…I’m falling behind! Luckily, I have till the 22nd to get them in the mail.
If you do participate, why not create a quick word cloud highlighting that person’s special traits? Then print it out on the paper you’ll use for your letter.
Here’s a link to my post’s 1-minute look at the More Love Letters project’s first request:
My first response to the story linked below: Admiration.
Then: “And you think it’s a big deal when you roll a neighbor’s trash barrels in every Tuesday morning.”
Yep, seems I could be doing more in my spare time.
So, once I get past the shame and embarrassment [I’ll need coffee and a scone to help me along], I’m going to let these impressive kids inspire me to simply get more done.
AND…super citizen that I am, I’ll STILL roll in those trash barrels!

As part of my AOK Writing project, I’m creating a slide-based tutorial on fashioning your own inspirational message for those needing a little support and, using bit.ly, including the shortened/memorable URL in any handwritten note. There’s also no reason you can’t create a short inspirational video instead of a static message. Hmmm…
[Note: my tutorial includes the step of publishing a Google Slide to the web; there’s no reason you couldn’t just post your message on your blog and ‘bit.ly-ize’ your post. I just chose the other route to make the link more exclusive.]
- Create a PDF/PNG/JPEG poster of support or inspiration. I used Canva.
- Place it on a blog page.
- Create a bit.ly link to it and include the link in your handwritten letter/note.
Here is a 90-second video showing my steps that included Canva, Google Slides [optional], and bit.ly.
