I encourage you to check out some of the many places I find the stories I share and see if they’re worth adding to your media diet.
- r/UpliftingNews (*) – I get most of my stories from this Reddit sub-reddit. People from all over the world share links to a variety of positive stories. I click through to the original source to verify its appropriateness and veracity and when something makes the cut, you’ll see it on NANIB.
- FutureCrunch – A periodic (monthly?) newsletter chock-full of links to positive news stories around the world. They also publish on Medium (*). I both subscribe, and contribute to their Patreon, which they just turn around and donate to worthy efforts worldwide. (If you subscribe to only one additional source, I’d recommend this one.)
- The Optimist Daily – Mission: “To accelerate the shift in human consciousness by catalyzing 100,000,000 people to start each day with a positive solutions mindset.”
- Sunny Skyz (*) – “Positive, Upbeat Media. Live. Laugh. Love.”
- Goodnet (*) – “Goodnet connects people around the world with opportunities for doing good”
- Beautiful News (*) – “A collection of good news, positive trends, uplifting statistics and facts — all beautifully visualized by Information is Beautiful.”
- Positive.News (*) – ” Positive News is the magazine for good journalism about the good things that are happening.”
- Reasons to be cheerful (*) – “Reasons to be Cheerful is a non-profit editorial project that is tonic for tumultuous times.”
- In Better News – A daily newsletter much like Not All News is Bad
- Goodnewsletter – both email, and an actual physical paper as well.
- Yes! Magazine – online
- Good News Network
- Solutions Story Tracker
- Five Happy Links
Various news media also have sections or email newsletters dedicated to Good news:
- The Good Stuff – From CNN
- The Upside – from The Guardian
- The Optimist– from The Washington Post
- Good News – from Fox News
- The Uplift – from CBS News
- Good News – from MSN
And of course:
- You! – Technically this doesn’t belong a the end, since it happens often, but your story suggestions — often from media sources local to you — will also often make it into NANIB. (If you have suggestions for additional sources to add to my list above, that’s awesome too!)
I review items marked with an asterisk (*) using their RSS feed and Feedly, rather than visiting their sites each day. It makes scanning the huge volume of candidates significantly easier.
