#tdc4038 #ds106 Positive News

Most news stations just broadcast bad news. It triggers our fear/anxiety and apparently keeps us hooked on to the screen / radio.
Let’s share some positive news. Be it a puppy rescued, a child born, a beautiful trip you made, whatever, as long as it triggers positive feelings.
Let’s continue 2023 with a good feeling.

Daily Create WordPress Widget

Use on any wordpress blog to add a sidebar widget that displays the latest Daily Create assignment. Created by Tim Owens and Martha Burtis (University of Mary Washington). This is a working copy you see right in this page!

In your wordpress dashboard, go to Plugins -> Add New and click the Upload link. Select the file and upload.

The widget will be available to use in any theme that supports widgets. You can customize the appearance via the plugin’s included CSS file.
