An experiment

Let’s try an experiment, shall we? What if we look only for good news—or, at least, the good aspect the newsmedia doesn’t report? What if we look only for something positive?

On Monday, January 13, I’m going to post something positive: I’m going to post the positive side of something the newsmedia reported negatively. But there’s so much positive stuff to post, it’s hard to choose, isn’t it?

I invite any blogger so inclined to follow my lead, whether on the 13th, 20th or 27th (or all three). This isn’t another blogging meme (at least, not yet…), but merely a challenge: There’s so much positive in the world, why not highlight it ONE day? (or three…)

I picked Monday because it’s well known as among the most depressing days of the week. I know there have been times I got depressed on Sunday as I anticipated Monday—I’m not alone in that. Monday could use a little good news in it.

If you choose to take part, paste a link in the comments. Or don’t. This isn’t about me, it's about proving a point, namely, that there’s a lot of positive stuff going on that we never hear about. You do what YOU want to do. Or not.

So, join me if you want, or don’t—your choice. But I bet it’d be easy for anyone to find something positive to post, whether personal or general. A challenge is a good thing, right?

So in about 5 hours, I'm going to post in my Times Union blog my (positive) response to your challenge.
