Positively Scottish: solutions journalism that I'm proud to be part of

Earlier this week my friend and Herald ex-colleague Calum Macdonald launched Positively Scottish, a brand new site for Scotland focussing on positive news.

Aside from the core concept of positive, actionable news which I wholeheartedly buy into, I also love that all of the contributing writers are being paid market rates for their content, giving aspiring journalists the opportunity to build a portfolio without having to work for free.

I helped out with the project in various small ways, from discussing the initial concept through to designing, building and hosting the site. I’m also on the board of directors of the Community Interest Company that we set up to ensure that any profits from the site get ploughed back into producing more great journalism.

Check it out when you get a chance… Positively Scottish.
