SFPNN, Sir Froggie’s Positive News Network, is a FREE good news daily e-mail letter, sent out Monday through Friday. We think of it as a “Spiritual Vitamin” because it gives you something positive each day to boost your spirits!
What Content Will I Find in SPNN ?
“All Good Things!” as my Oma would say. SFPNN originated in 1998 with the challenge to find at least one good thing a day to counteract the constant bombardment of negative media. As our network of positive people grows and evolves, so does our newsletter’s content. We want to change the way you think about the news! According to the Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus, news is newly received or noteworthy information. SFPNN’s news includes stories that make you feel good; along with columns, advice and commentary from our featured authors who share their approach to making our world a more positive place. In addition, we may provide poems, jokes, inspirational writing pieces, meditations or quotations from “every-day” or famous people; basically anything that makes you feel good about your Self, life, and the world we live in.
Our newsletter is a collaborative volunteer effort from SFPNN’s readers, featured columnists and editor. Other news you’ll find in SFPNN – and which we hope you’ll contribute to our network – is made up of special events in our reader’s lives such birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, special get-togethers, promotions, personal success stories and accomplishments, the pursuit of dreams, and progress in reaching goals. We aim to touch your Spirit and to help you soar. Everyone is welcomed to contribute.

How Did SFPNN Get Started?
March 20th, 1998. It was one of those gray, rainy, days. I turned on the radio. Again, negative news. I tried to lift my spirits by exercising. The TV was on in the work-out room. More negativity. I reached for a newspaper. Still more negative news. That was it! I was exasperated. I knew there had to be something better…
That’s when my husband casually speculated, “One day we’ll have to start PNN… you know, like CNN but only with positive news.” Mark kissed me good-bye, left for work, and left me thinking… If we waited until we could afford to start our own cable station, we’d never do it. But I had immediate access to another powerful source of media – my computer and the internet.
I sent an e-mail letter to about 30 of my friends and e-mail acquaintances with a simple mission: I will find one good thing a day and share it with others to spread some positive energy.
I didn’t know if I could do it at first… that is, find one positive thing a day. Nor did I know how my friends would react to some goofy good news item in their e-mailbox each and every morning. But their responses brought reality to Light…
People WANT and NEED to hear the POSITIVE things in life. News isn’t just about the stuff that goes wrong or the people who can’t seem to get their lives together. News is about every day life being noticed… and that includes the good stuff!
I’m still amazed at how much our Positive News Network has grown. I didn’t plan on making it any bigger, but the word got out. Our subscriber list is in the triple digits now! Our tremendous growth and success can be credited to our readers. You told me you wanted more PNN. You told your friends, family, and coworkers – and they wanted PNN. You’ve contributed your favorite stories, quotes, poems, and experiences. Some of our readers have even become featured columnists! We’ve not only created a wonderful Positive News Network but a network of Positive People creating miracles in their own and each other’s lives!
Thank you for all of your encouragement, inspiration and contributions. You’ve taught me that we all make a difference. It’s up to each of us to make that difference a positive one.
Peace, Love, Happiness & Health,
Sir Froggie’s Positive News Network
