I’M All In
Every hour of every day, we’re bombarded by 295 billion gigabytes of information (the equivalent of 174 newspapers full of data per day).
Most of that information is news, bad news. Negative events dominate the headlines. TV broadcasts are overrun with disaster, corruption, crisis, violence and scandal.
We are changing that.
Whether, like us, you are a talented, committed journalism with a vision who’d like to write for I’M Magazine, a photographer or film director interested in collaborating with us, or just feel you’d like to contribute to I’M Magazine in an alternative way, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And even if you’re not a journalist or a photographer, but have an eye for good stories, whether they be moving, challenging, or encouraging, please feel free to get in contact, we’re open to suggestions.
Embrace our movement.
The old journalistic belief that “Good news is no news” still prevails and the truth is sometimes we find ourselves absorbed in those depressing stories without even realizing. However, if the media can be seen as concentrating on the bad rather than the good things in life, this is perhaps due to our innate attraction to the negative. So, what would happen if instead of half-empty, we viewed our glass as half-full?
In one of his poems, Canadian musician Leonard Cohen said: “There is a crack in everything/That’s how the light gets in.”
So, why not focus on the positive? Why not stop complaining and start looking on the bright side of life, shedding light on the good, and trying to make the world a better place for each and every one of us today?
Since 2008, IM Magazine has been covering projects, ideas and practices that are making a positive impact on our planet.
The world is full of everyday heroes, ordinary but inspiring people who, as individuals or through organizations, are leaving a lasting mark in our History, like others did have done in the past. Remember Rosa Parks – she was arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat for a white citizen and was immortalized as the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement”.
These are the kinds of inspiring stories we want to share with you.
