Feed The Good


This WordPress plugin adds a new post type that allows you to quickly and privately keep track of what you’re grateful for. Titles populate automatically as the current day’s date, hashtags convert to WordPress style tags, which this plugin calls Gratitudes, and instead of Categories you set up Moods. You may also set up a daily email reminder and see what you’re most grateful for from the dashboard.

Recommended way to post

I’m grateful for #wordpress and #water.


  1. Within the admin dashboard go to Plugins –> Add New
  2. Search for “Feed The Good”
  3. Choose activate, and then install
  4. Go to Gratitude Journal in the admin menu and choose Moods – create moods like you would create post categories (e.g. Happy, Sad, Anxious, Mad)
  5. Go to Gratitude Journal and choose Settings – set up your daily email reminder

Or, from the Add Plugins page choose Upload Plugin and upload this plugin’s zip file.


Does this plugin have any settings?

Yes. Find “Gratitude Journal” in your admin menu and within there is a Settings link.

Are gratitude posts private?

Yes, by default. But, at any point, you may change a post to public by using the normal WordPress privacy/status settings.

How do I set up moods?

Just like you set up post categories. But instead of going to Categories, you go to the Moods submenu item under Gratitude Journal.
