I’ve made mention of the challenges that present themselves with being a daily blogger here on my site before, but for the sake of this post, I want to revisit the topic. It can be tricky to come up with new and interesting content to write about on a daily basis, and sometimes, I find myself struggling to source fresh ideas to write about.
I started visiting The Good News Network as a means of discovering positive, wholesome content to write about, and in doing so, this website has become a sort of staple in my life in terms of my writing. I visit the site almost daily, not only to see if there’s something I can incorporate into my blog, but further, because the website itself is so damn awesome.
In case you’re unfamiliar with this site and what it stands for, here is an excerpt from the website’s ‘About Us’ page.
“Since 1997, millions of people have turned to the Good News Network® as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media. Because of its long history, staying power, and public trust, GNN is #1 on Google for good news.
“The website, with its archive of 21,000 positive news stories from around the globe, confirms what people already know—that good news itself is not in short supply; the broadcasting of it is. From our 5-star app, to our new book (And Now, The Good News: 20 Years of Inspiring News Stories), to our weekly Good News Gurus podcast, and Morning Jolt email newsletter, GNN is a daily dose of hope for millions of fans.
“Thomas Jefferson said the job of journalists was to portray accurately what was happening in society. GNN was founded because the media was failing to report the positive news.”
This statement accurately summarizes why I frequently visit the site – not only for ideas, but for what it stands for, which is covering positive news in our forever darkening world. If you haven’t visited the site before, I highly recommend doing so. It could entirely alter your perception of contemporary news coverage.
