"Advice From Artists on How to Overcome Creative Block": by Maria Popova via dailygood.org


I was just thinking about the great things associated with good news, in sharp contrast to the gossip, and bad news following celebrities, and professional athletes, the stuff usually shown in the media. 
I found this site posted by a friend, and I am finding it a great place to visit daily, between writing breaks, or just to take some time to reflect on good news. Good news and solutions are much more appealing than the gossip, complaints, and violent crime focused upon by the media conglomerates.
I don't watch any regular news anyway.  I read the paper, but this site is a new's source I now follow:

About Us


DailyGood was born in 1998, when one college student started sharing inspiration with a half a dozen of his friends by sending them an enriching quote every day.

Today, DailyGood leverages the internet to promote positive and uplifting news around the world to more than 100,000 subscribers through the daily and weekly newsletters. Readers receive a news story, an inspiring quote, and a suggested action that each person can take to make a difference in their own lives and the world around them.

Often times, watching the nightly news and reading mainstream newspapers it's hard to remember the presence of good in the world. And yet it is constantly around us. The world is full of everyday heroes and true stories of transformation. They have helped sustain life down the ages in a multitude of ways, small, simple and profound. DailyGood aims to shine a light on these stories and in doing so to change the nature of our conversations. If it can spread a few smiles along the way it's purpose is served.

Our philosophy is quite simple: "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." The entire project is fully run by dedicated volunteers who contribute hundreds of hours finding the right stories and quotes. All of our content is distributed and syndicated for free. We don't advertise or promote any products. We don't ask for anything with the trust that whatever is needed will come.

And in the end, we are thankful that so many benefit from DailyGood because it gives us a meaningful opportunity to serve.

Thank you for your partnership in spreading the good.

The DailyGood Team
