COMING SOON---The Silver Lining News Anniversary Relaunch!
We are the Silver Lining Network (SLN)
"EXTRA, EXTRA!" The Silver Lining News (SLN) wants YOUR silver lining stories!
Economic despair, disasters and tragedies are part of life. But we believe silver linings are a fundamental part of these challenging events too.
Have you survived job loss and the recession through a bright spot in your life?
Have you had loss that was bearable through someone's act of service?
Or did a silver lining see you through it?
That's the "silver lining spin" in your stories and SLN is dedicated to illustrating them.

*Click the "Send Us Your Story!" button at the bottom to submit.
If you have a photo or video to accompany your story, send it to: email@example.com.
We want to publish your stories on our new Web site relaunch this fall!*
All published authors on the new SLN will receive a free 1-year charter membership.
We want stories of all types with silver lining endings from all ages such as:
*Victims of violence, fraud and other injustices
*Flopped weddings, and other events
*Any adversity that ended on any small positive note belongs on SLN
SLN calls all baby boomers and the silver-haired generation to lead The Silver Lining News into a new era of positive news coverage!
SLN staff plan to bust the myth that there is no good news associated with growing older. Send us your silver lining stories about why being 60+ is a positive in your life and those you share it with.
We want your personal silver lining stories because your service preserves America's silver linings in its darkest hours.
*The Silver Lining News reserves the right to edit all submissions for appropriateness, length, and technical correctness. It also reserves the right to deny publication. SLN reserves the right to use stories in future publications.
In 12 years since the original SLN Web site launch, much has changed on the information highway and new media platforms have emerged. But one thing hasn't changed; stories about economic despair, corruption, disasters and tragedies dominate the headlines. Government, education and health care are three hot topics in which any good news is seldom seen in media headlines. In addition to your silver lining stories, SLN is dedicated to cover the "silver lining spin" in these topics and others. Look for our new Web site this fall. Watch for a new staff, new format and fresh content that makes SLN
with the GOOD NEWS!

Rebecca K. McConnell founded The Silver Lining News in 1972 but then shelved the project to raise her growing children. Consequently, she didn't develop the publication to its full potential then, but kept the dream alive and the business registered. Now 38 years later, she is moving SLN's long-standing commitment forward with new ideas and plans to be FIRST with the GOOD NEWS for all who want to find it. We hope this will start people thinking of how to find Silver Linings. Every day lots of us have ordinary Silver Linings, it's time to start looking for them and we ill all be healthier and happier. The staff isn't comprised of sexy girls or even tall girls. However..they can write great, enterprising features that can have a dominant presence on the Internet. We look forward to producing content and welcoming leads on everything from astrology to the Internet, and social media, shopping, business, cruise vacations (or any vacation), weddings, holidays, health and fitness, hobbies, finance, dating, nutrition, flowers, entertainment, recipes, jokes, games, birthdays, parties, April fools stories, dogs, cats, kids, famous quotes, poems, news, and anything that has a positive story line with a silver lining moment, ending or element. Please send in your stories. The silver linings you have found in your experiences may be just the story that will make a huge difference in someone's life. Instead of looking at life's storms, find the rainbows and silver linings on the clouds. A positive attitude is one of nature's best healers. As the "Silver Lining Network" is using all forms of media as it becomes possible from print, internet, radio, T.V. and any other media related outlet. We are also a network of people helping each other and ourselves find our Silver Linings.
