Hi friends! Happy Monday!
A while back, I came across a list of the best email newsletters. I sorted through and ended up only subscribing to two.
But guys, they're a pretty great couple of newsletters.
Now I Know is a quirky newsletter. Every weekday, Dan Lewis sends an article about something new: today's was about how Solitaire helped the first generations of computer users learn how to use their computers. A few days ago, I got one about how a woman's biological children somehow had DNA that didn't match hers, and before that an incredible story about how women in Albania elected to permanently behave as men to receive certain social benefits and abilities (like to head a household and, you know, not be considered property.
You guys know I nerd out on stories about other peoples' experiences. If you do too, sign up for this newsletter here. It's the kind of weird, funny history you wish you'd learned in elementary school, and takes about 5 minutes to read. Worth it.
theSkimm is an AWESOME newsletter that is basically the only way I knew anything about what was happening in Syria and the way I'm keeping up with the potential federal shutdown. theSkimm is targeted at young-ish adult women (probably if you read my blog, you're in their target audience) and focuses on one national or international story each day. It also provides brief information on 3-4 more ongoing stories each day.
If you all (like me) have trouble keeping up with the news, I highly HIGHLY recommend this one. Reading it has become the first thing I do every day! Sign up here.
Do you subscribe to any good newsletters? I'd love to hear!
