The Good Side News Story

Welcome to Good Side News, a positive online space where we share the latest in optimistic news around the world. We are a platform for those seeking inspiration and rising optimists.

GSN was founded in early 2020 because of the crisis the world was experiencing, which brought so much negativity, despair, and worry. The “Down Side” so to say. Having the desire on our team to make a positive impact in the world, the idea for this company was birthed and the plan to provide a light on all the good things we could find. This plan was implemented as fast as possible.

We aim to share real stories from our very own writers, as well as read submissions and contributors. We publish stories for our readers daily, and interact with them everywhere we can. There is enough negativity out there in the world and in the, and we wanted to take the time to celebrate all that is good out there!

Thanks for joining us in this journey called like and we look forward to all the awesome things coming in the future. Help us shed light on all of the positivity out there in the world that we live in today by inviting those you know to join the good side movement.

My diverse background in digital media as well as communications is what sets me apart from the rest. I have seen both sides of the editorial and public relations industries, and have found my niche of clients needing marketable content that not only sells, but also genuinely connects with the readership.
