Founded The #PortsmouthLOVE Letter

I coined and popularized the hashtag #PortsmouthLOVE, primarily on Twitter, used to highlight positive things about the City of Portsmouth — this grew into a popular regional weekly email publication, of which I was Publisher & Editor-in-Chief.

Once the hashtag gained popularity, I collected some highlights into monthly Storify collections during May, June, July and August of 2013.

The #PortsmouthLOVE Letter was born when I transitioned the hashtag into a weekly email newsletter campaign, highlighting community events, businesses and organizations. The newsletter quickly grew to 600+ subscribers, with an average open rate of over 70%.
