On Quite a Year At the Daily Outsider: Reflections
It has been quite a year at The Daily Outsider as we celebrated a year of achievement and milestones. We purposefully decided to headline it as "The Year in Hope" that we captured from the Obama Foundation simply to underscore a sense of hope that we had about our initiatives and our roadmap for the future. As we reflected upon the year, we hope all enjoyed our selection of one of our favorite artists, Cold Play in line with a tradition we had to periodically feature our "Artist of the Week".
2019 saw us go through a first phase of a rebranding & transformation process that saw us launch the Perspectives, Education and Visions Initiative as the Ordinary Faces initiative went through a facelift. We also worked on laying out a transformation of our platforms. Being named as a Google News Initiative and continuing the close collaboration with SuiteBriar and Google was among some of the achievements that we look forward to building on the 6321 published pieces we have done throughout our platforms.
2019 saw us continuing our engagement on Social Media with our Medium Corner, our Twitter Corner, periodic curation at our Facebook Corner which is an area we believe we can continue to build upon in the new year. This is as we continued our engagements and worked to also be more focused with being a focused aggregator of the information at hand as we identified some key partners to feature including the Visual Capitalist. We hereby present the following courtesy of the Visual Capitalist on 2019:
We also continue our Social Good Efforts that culminated in the launch of the Esparanza Platform that has featured guidance from the US Federal Emergency Management Agency which we hope we can build upon as we gear up to be supportive of the MLK Day National day of Service in January 2020 and the Global Volunteer Month sponsored by the Points of Light Foundation later on in April 2020--and Climate Advocacy. We hereby note this courtesy of the team at the Points of Light Foundation:
