I usually keep profanity on my blog to a minimum, but HOLY SHIT this is the best thing to happen to Internet News since RSS.
A couple months back I was getting pretty depressed by what I was seeing in my RSS reader. I track over one hundred web sites on a daily basis using RSS, which is a lot of news to take in. Without realizing it I was paying way more attention to the bad stories (“Gee the world sucks”) and barely even glancing over the good news (“More sappy crap on the Internet, woo-hoo”).
I was making the mistake that so many depressed people make: I had unconciously created a filter in my head so that only the bad stuff got through. It was only when I made a concious effort to read, in full, the GOOD stories did that feeling turn around.
Happy News is just that: Happy News. They find news that makes you feel a little better about the world rather than pushing the biggest disasters in the world today for the sake of more web traffic (I’m looking at you CNN.com).
Their RSS feed is a little off at the moment, but hopefully that will improve with time.
Thanks a bunch J Pettus!!!
