It's called The Econ-Optimist. It's tag line is, "In today's economy it's good to be informed but we don't need to be inundated by the "rec***ion" word. There is positivity out there - Are you an Econ-Optimist?"
I'll tell you my story........
When the Irish recession was coming to it's peak, the constant conversation in our home was about daily redundancies and job losses around Ireland. Every evening was a family dinner of negativity and bad news. I had enough! It couldn't be all bad news. There had to be something positive happening out there. I was going to find it! The Econ-Optimist was born.
In October 2008 I published my first post and it grew from there. Ireland is creating jobs every day of the week but it isn't talked about. The Econ-Optimist is a blog which only publishing good economic news about job creation. To this date in 2011, the blog is still strong.
Since 2008, my husband has lost his job and since then started his own business. In 2009 I was expecting my second child and while my husband was unemployed - The Econ-Optimist kept my mindset on the right road and helped me to stay focused on the positivity and possibility of Ireland. The only person that can ensure the positive road is walked, is the person themself.
The Econ-Optimist has been featured on the 2FM Ryan Tubridy show - it has been published in the Business & Finance Magazine (Article entitled: O for Optimisim) and has a fan in Sinead Desmond of Ireland AM.
