Good News Shared is 1 today! I’m so happy that this special day has fallen on Thank You Thursday!

Thank YOU for reading and sharing our stories


I’m really grateful to you for reading the stories we feature, and for sharing them. We launched as quickly as we could with the plan of testing the idea, and if no one read the stories we would stop writing them. We only exist because you read and enjoy the stories – if you didn’t read them, we wouldn’t be here.

I wish I could thank every single reader individually but, as far as I’m aware this isn’t possible, so I hope you will read this post and know it was meant for you.

Thanks for the Support

This website wouldn’t be here without the support of a lot of people. I’ve been supported in numerous ways, including:

  • Mentoring
  • Website design
  • Website updates
  • Desk space
  • Proof reading
  • Writing stories

.. And more!

I have been able to thank a small number of people individually using two different methods.

  1. Postcards

Thank You for Supporting Good News Shared

I was going to use the Postsnap App* to send postcards to some of the people who have helped make Good News Shared possible. Unfortunately for me it’s on iOS only and I have an Android phone. A kind friend offered to let me use his phone but practical reasons meant this didn’t work out. Instead, I used the old fashioned method of writing and posting the cards to people.

*If you would like to send a postcard to a special someone and you have an iOS phone, get one free postcard by using this code: GOODNEWSPOSTCARD – the offer is valid only until April 30th 2015.

  1. Videos

I have wanted to try filming and posting videos on Twitter since it became possible to do so. I love Twitter and I think short videos are a great way to reach out to people. I decided the time has come for me to stop being shy and to film some videos on Twitter to say thanks to some very supportive people – the Good News Shared Ambassadors. All of the Ambassadors are on Twitter, so it’s been fun to use the tool to say thanks.

Saying thank you is so important, and I love that it’s possible to be creative and show gratitude in different ways. How do you say thank you to people who have been there for you? Come over to Facebook or Twitter and let me know.
