Good News Sites

The Obsessive Reader is thinking of you. While I continue to focus on revising my novel, I would like to share with you online news sites that may provide you with a refreshing alternative to the steaming pile of **** that passes for mainstream journalism. These sites are vastly different from  alternative media, which indulges in its own doom and gloom. You can wash down your consumption of books with visits to these sites, allowing you to remain an Obsessive Reader even as I am on hiatus from this blog. 

I offer to you my choices as follows:

1) Good News Daily - http://goodnewsdaily.com/index.php. Warning: It's very corny. 

2) Good News Network - Stories from actual news outlets. Sophisticated journalism, accent on the positive at http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/.

3)  Gimundo - Great videos, good writing to post on your FB page or email friends and family http://gimundo.com/.

4) Optimists News - http://optimistworld.com/News.aspx. Worldwide coverage, plenty of U.S. stories. Good info on the philanthropic world.

Let me know what you think!!
