Happy News

I came across this site the other day, and I just had to share. It's called Happy News. Their slogan is "Real News. Compelling Stories. Always Positive." Love this!

I'm a bit of a news junkie, but admittedly, I do sometimes feel depressed after going through the latest headlines where there's usually a lot of doom and gloom about things over which we have no or little control. For instance, MSNBC did you really need to bring me the article about peanut allergy bullying, so I can now obsess that this might happen to my peanut-allergic child? I think not.

So this week, I've been checking out Happy News instead, where I can read about Lindsay Lohan's visit to homeless teens rather than her latest issues with drugs and jail and rehab!

What kind of news do you like to read? Do you find reading the news depressing, or do you like to be up to date on the latest?


  1. I'll be honest, I don't pay much attention to current events. I am so out of it that I didn't even know about Hurricane Katrina for days. I rarely have the chance to catch the evening news, but I do read the local paper online everyday. However, there isn't much to report around here so everyday the front page is either about a car accident or a wild animal in someone's back yard. I do find reading the news depressing, but I really need to make an effort to pay more attention.

  2. Haha -- my local paper is like that, too. I usually "read" it in about 3 minutes. I don't watch the news either, but I usually read it online when I'm procrastinating from doing work :-)
