I Did it for Love

Miata Getaweh shared the original story of "I Did it for Love".  I Did it for Love is an inspirational blog about Love and the extend people are willing to go for Love.


"We all have done things for love. In most cases, we are not willing to admit.  Our society is embarrassed to admit to things we do for romantic love, especially if the relationship didn't work out.  Back in College, my best friend and I joked about the crazy things we did for love.  One day, I thought to myself, it would be cool to have a blog that encourages people to share their stories about things they did for love. I created this blog to take away the stigma placed on the sacrifices made for love, which has become a signal of weakness especially in this DNA. People are expected to be strong and tough.  We are encouraged not to love too much. We should hold back. I'm saying it is ok to love and give your all, even if you lose at the end.  I believe in happily ever after.  There is a difference between doing things for love and staying in an abusive relationship.  If you have been burn before, I'm still asking that you give into love.  You can't love without giving into love.  The more you hold on to hurt, the harder it will be to love. 'I Did it for Love' is a platform to share stories about things we did for love regardless the outcome. "

Miata Getaweh talked about her vision for the blog.  "Few years from now, I want to write a book, sharing the stories from the blog.  I intend to go mainstream, beyond my community.  It will be very interesting to get stories from other parts of the world to share as an inspiration."


 
You may have seen pictures of folks wearing T-shirt from I Did it for Love.  "The T-Shirts were initially a gift for  those who shared their stories with our blog but  friends started asking if they could buy the T-Shirts.  The business aspect just happen, it wasn't planned."

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,
