I don’t drink coffee in the morning, as I am actually not a fan of coffee. Reading is my cup of joe.
Yes, so you wake up in the morning and you’re trying to hit inbox zero and cut back on your email subscriptions. I know the feeling, however I have found these newsletters will make you laugh, smile — and maybe even feel a little more informed, M-F. Check them out and sign up if you’re down:
A newsletter geared specifically to, A) Young female professionals who, B) Want to keep up with the news of the day. TheSkimm breaks down what’s happening on big issues — and why they’re happening. This is the first thing I read in the morning, also because I hear the email ping at around 6am.
A daily link roundup by West Coast writer and investor Dave Pell, and it’s especially great at zeroing in on the latest ideas about technology and the future of our society. Dave’s got a knack for digging up interesting stories that others aren’t talking about. Expect this email in the afternoon.
A daily email all about the world of startups. Every day, a new story about an interesting startup lands in your inbox. Plus, the Wakefield team often promotes startup job openings in their emails, which I think is pretty cool. I actually found out about my smart watch, Pebble and the Coin card here.
If you need to know what’s happening inside the Beltway — like, way, waaaay inside — then there’s Playbook, a daily email from Politico’s Mike Allen. It’s lengthy, and wonky, but it’s also a place where D.C. insiders go each morning. I just registered today, so I’m excited to get the inside scoop.
Scoopinion’s built on a Google Chrome extension that keeps track of what you’re reading. Once it gets a sense of what you like, it starts sending twice-weekly emails with other links you might enjoy reading. If you don’t think what you are reading is worth spreading, then you can tell Scoopinion to ignore it! It’s pretty accurate with recommendations.
6. The Fetch
If you live in one of The Fetch’s core cities — like NYC (SHOUT OUT to my City friends living the Dream) — where their newsletter is a comprehensive look at what interesting events are happening near you. It also features curated links to get you motivated at work.
