Valentines For Journalists, 2014 Edition

The only thing journalists love more than their significant other — if they’re lucky enough to find one who puts up with the whole journalism thing — is pushing deadlines. So, we know the odds are pretty good you’re still looking for the perfect words to say “I love you” in journo-geek speak in time for Friday’s Hallmark holiday.

Don’t worry! You’ve got plenty of time. But just in case you’re short on ideas or develop writer’s block before penning that love note, go ahead and send one of this year’s Valentines For Journalists to your sweetheart — especially if you both share the journalism bug.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for in this year’s batch, we’ve probably touched on your sentiment before in 2013201220112010 or 2009.

If you’re still not feeling it, join the fun in the comments and on Twitter with the hashtag #journolove. Maybe we’ll use it next year! Spread the love!

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?

We go together like pizza and election night

Feel free to distribute any of these, along with any from previous editions: here, here and here. And don’t forget to let us know if you have an awesome idea we didn’t include, @10000Words with the hashtag #journolove or in the comments below. Maybe we’ll use it next year!
