I was recently asked the question "Are there any sites that provide good news? I'm fed up of reading about miserable information!" I had a look around and actually - there are a few! While a lot of news is negative, and there often appears to be more interest in bad stories rather than good, it's helpful to balance things out now and then. So, if you're tired of miserable news, try:
Good News Network. This site has various news sections, just like regular news sites, with top stories, RSS, a subscription service, inspirational quotes and so on.
HappyNews - all the news that's fun to print. Again, various sections, columnists, quotes, and links to 'unhappy' news sites.
Good News Broadcast a very busy site with an emphasis on YouTube videos, and very feel good, though in my opinion not quite so much 'news' items as the previous two.
Gimundo - good news served daily. Good news hotspots via Google maps, videos, RSS, best of the web and so on. I really like their take on the news - 'higher gas prices mean less accidents' being one excellent example.
Great News Network is a bit digg like, with votes for stories. News by category, region, submit news, and an RSS feed.
Upbeat news stories is promoting good, positive and upbeat stories. However, this one looks pretty dormant I'm afraid.
Positive News is a UK based site. It's the web based version of a paper based quarterly. Not so much current affairs, more feel good, sustainable future type information.
Yes! Magazine, which again looks like a website of a paper based newsletter/magazine. More on political issues than current affairs from the look that I took.
Self growth is a site that does focus on current events, aggregating stories that have a positive spin from other news sites.
Daily Good delivers inspiring stories to your inbox. Focus on inspirational, rather than 'news'.
Bouphonia is a weblog that is a personal one, looking at positive news events of interest to the blogger from around the world.
Happy Posts is a social network where people post positive stories. I found it a little too sugary for my liking, but maybe I'm just a miserable grouch?
Well - happy news resources. Take a moment out to read one or two of them. Smile at someone you don't know. And, just for a moment, count how many blessings you have.
