Apple’s Steve Jobs died yesterday and people around the world have grieved him, both live and in social media. I decided to post today something more cheerful to balance the sad news yesterday, and introduce seven new positive sites.
Good News Network’s (GNN) mission is to provide readers with a “daily dose of news to enthuse”. Even though this website founded by a former television provider is mainly publishing good news, there was a news article about the death of Steve Jobs.
Gimundo serves positive stories and good news, and it’s owners are promising never to charge subscriptions fees to readers.
A team of citizen journalists are reporting on positive stories from around the world at Happy News. “We believe virtue, goodwill and heroism are hot news. That’s why we bring you up-to-the-minute news, geared to lift spirits and inspire lives.”
Optimist World publishes news on corporate social responsibility, and it also includes positive sports stories. So if you are a sports enthusiast, or interested in corporate social responsibility, Optimist World is great place to visit.
OdeWire offers news for intelligent optimists, or intelligent news for optimists. It searches the web for “the most authoritative news sources for stories that focus on solutions rather than problems, and on positive changes rather than negative ones”.
Positive News claims it is the “world’s original and leading positive newspaper.” This UK magazine is published four times a year and has a circulation of approximately 50,000.
The Good News, based in Pakistan, aims to share positive news stories about the country that Americans rarely hear good news about. Did you for example know that Pakistani squash players have won the British Open 12 times?
Have a great weekend everyone!
