Similar to snail mail, it’s always fun to receive mail that is not a bill or some serious piece of information that you need to act on. This is where newsletters come in. I know newsletters aren’t for everyone and some people are pretty vigilantly on keeping things like newsletters out of their inbox. The idea of newsletters from even just a few years ago make me cringe and want to unsubscribe immediately. But I have grown to really like newsletters over the past couple of years mainly because I have absolute control over the ones I choose to receive. I purposely bookmark my go-to newsletters to read during my lengthy work commute on the subway. Here are the newsletters I make it a point to read when I have time in case you also like newsletters you may find interesting to hit your inbox.
As I step away from traditional news more and more because it’s hard to filter out the negativity, I depend on social media and newsletters to keep me aware of political/social issues and key news stories. Ann Friedman’s newsletter always links to articles and news stories would never be on my radar otherwise.
Though this is a recent addition to my newsletter queue, Another Round is by far one of my favorite podcasts that I always tell people to tune into if they are searching for good podcasts to listen to. It only makes sense that their newsletter makes it to my inbox for this reason.
Every month when I receive Alexandra Franzen’s newsletter, I remember how much I really enjoy her writing. It’s great reading for learning about writing and navigating life. Twice a month is the perfect schedule for this newsletter… by the time the next one rolls around, you are ready to dive in.
I really like the Cup of Jo Newsletter for the same reason why I like the accompanying blog: it has a personable tone akin to what you’d have when conversing with a friend. The newsletter (like the blog) highlights posts from the daily blog you may have missed and also includes a couple of interesting links on things such as design, love/marriage, motherhood, fashion, books, among other topics.
This newsletter is the most recent addition to my reading list. I am not a regular reader honestly, but I always find compelling articles on topics such as politics, culture, and style when I do take the time to peruse it.
I found Alisa Vitti’s book so informative and it taught me so much about hormones and how hormonal imbalances can impact your health as a woman. The more I delve into health and wellness topics in my leisure reading, the more useful I find content like this informative newsletter.
