Get Us Your Ideas For This Year’s Journo-Valentines

Valentine’s Day is one month away. Gulp. But don’t worry, we’ll be here for you again this year with another batch of fun journalism-related Valentine’s e-cards for your sweetie. We hope they like puns more than chocolate, because those are easier to come by on this list.

We’ve already come up with some fun ideas based on trends and perennial topics, but we want your ideas too! Because we’ve already covered a lot of ground in past year, we wanted to see what card you’d like to share with your journo-loves. Maybe it’s a journalism-inspired pickup line? Or a it’s-only-OK-to-use-puns-for-punchlines-once-a-year traditional Valentine idea? It could be anything related to writing, reporting, designing, coding, copyediting, social media, etc. Pretty much anything in a journalist’s life is fair, as you’ll see if you flip through past editions (linked below).

Send us your ideas in the comments, on Twitter @10000words with #journolove, or on Facebook.

And in the meantime, enjoy some favorites from the previous sets we’ve published. Maybe your gem is already out there?
