All You Need is Love

All-you-need-is-Love-Project-Main-Large-Logo

What does this world need more of? Love. What costs nothing and is worth everything? Love. What cannot be seen, but can be felt when it is gone? Love. What do we all naturally crave the moment we are born until the day we die? Love. What makes you feel all tingly inside? Love. Why do we live? To Love.

For these reasons and many others, I started my blog. Looking for an inspiration to begin to write, I pondered what I cherish most in my life. The answer always came back to love and, hence, came the birth of ShuGar Love. All of my posts are sprinkled with love and I hope you can feel my heart in my words. Plus, you all know the ShuGars are mad about The Beatles, right? I’d like to take my goal of spreading love further by launching the All You Need is Love Project.

What is the All You Need is Love Project?

It’s a project to inspire more love on our planet. I like to nickname it my love revolution. In order to do that, I dedicate Thursdays as the All You Need is Love Project day where I write about love, post pictures about love on social media, and share with others my heart in person and online. At first, this will start with me, but I want to expand this project to involve a community of bloggers and non-bloggers to contribute to this movement directly or indirectly. The more we come together, the more love we can share.

How can I be a part of the All You Need is Love Project?

Easy peasy! There are several ways to be part of this love movement.

  • Every Thursday, you can write about love (any form of it) on your blog. I will also suggest a topic at the end of Thursday’s All You Need is Love Project post if you are looking for any ideas. As I begin to develop a “love” following, I will be creating a blog hop using Linky Tools so that all us lovers can connect. Details on how to become part of the link party will be featured at the end of my Thursday Love post. Please make sure to use the All You Need is Love Project banner (below) if you participate in Thursday’s Love Day.
  • Email me if you have a love topic you’d like me to write about. I am always open to suggestions and I really like the idea of creating an open space for dialogue.
  • Share the love on social media! On Thursdays, I will post love questions on my twitter and facebook pages. I welcome all to join the convo and contribute to the discussion. It’s so much fun hearing about our own experiences with this crazy thing called love. Make sure to use the hashtag: #allyouneedisloveproject so that we can all be connected.
  • Contribute to a future blog post. At times, I will seek YOU out to share your thoughts on a Thursday Love topic. Your insight is so valuable to adding meaning to this love revolution. If you are interested, I will email or do a social media shout out for any one who wants to share in an upcoming blog post. Simply private message me a response and we can go from there. I’ll make sure to direct quote you and give you credit, along with a direct link to your blog & a short blog summary if you are a blogger.
  • Are words not your thing? Don’t fret! Instead of telling us, post pictures on instagram or twitter to show us your love. The pictures can be of anything or anyone that fills your heart on that day. Make sure to use the hashtag: #allyouneedisloveproject so we can enjoy your lovely photos.
  • Pin some love by adding your pins to the All You Need is Love Project board on Pinterest. Email me if you want to pin so that I can add you as a contributing pinner.
  • Be a permanent “love” supporter by using one of the All You Need is Love Project buttons on your sidebar. I have provided two sizes for your convenience. Feel free to use whichever one you fancy. This is a great way for others to discover this love revolution and also for your followers to know your dedication to love.

Who created the All You Need is Love Project images?

I worked with an uber-talented graphic designer to custom-make all the images featured. Aren’t they so lovely? Her name is Santo Chen and you can email her directly at santo.1024@gmail.com for inquires/rates. I highly recommend utilizing her for any of your design needs. She truly is fun to work with and makes the design process inspiring. Added bonus: she is looking to expand her portfolio so her prices are very reasonable. The images presented were inspired by my blog logo, which was created by the fab Erin at Art Social.
