4 Email Newsletters You Should Totally Subscribe To
My favorite email subscription recommendations
Some people think the most coveted real estate is in California and New York, but that's nothing compared to the uber-competitive email inbox. With so many brands (well, all of them) vying for a spot, most people are looking for easy ways to unsubscribe from as many lists as possible.
But curating an inbox that makes you smile isn't all about getting the bad stuff out; you have to bring some good stuff in, too. There are a few subscriptions I make sure to open and read every time something lands in my inbox. I look forward to them because they make my day brighter or teach me something new. Check them out below!
Girls' Night In
GNI is exactly what it sounds like: an email subscription for women who would rather drink cab sauv on their couch with a couple friends (or a charcoal face mask) than go to a noisy bar with a bunch of strangers. The newsletter comes once a week, on Friday mornings, and it's absolutely delightful. Look forward to awesome recommendations on everything from skincare to the best yoga pants and links to smart, interesting articles from across the web.
They also have a great book club that meets in major cities across the country. I go to their NYC meetups almost every month!
Girls' Night In has a referral-tracking program. If you subscribe, please use my link.
It's hard to find people nowadays (especially millennial women) who haven't already heard of TheSkimm, but if for some reason you have not, please join us! TheSkimm's weekday newsletter provides bite-sized summaries of the most important news stories, making it easy to stay relatively up-to-date on current affairs. They also make me chuckle out loud on the regular, with their wittiness and occasional snark.
TheSkimm is becoming a powerhouse brand with several fantastic content channels. In addition to their newsletter, they also have a great podcast, video content, and more, most of which is geared toward young professional women.

This is another news roundup, but whereas TheSkimm is more global and political, Morning Brew is focused on business and financial markets. Yes, I know that doesn’t sound particularly engaging, but if you work in the business world, it’s a great one-stop shop.
They also do a fantastic job of being funny, light, brief, and focused on only what you need to know. And did I mention funny? And they keep things interesting and fun with weekly news quizzes, photo contests, and other ways to engage.

If you work in content marketing, don’t miss this one. Every two weeks, industry maven Ann Handley sends her personal newsletter filled with articles and resources that caught her eye, helpful tips and info, and more. Also, she is a delight to read — here’s a taste:
Good morning, sunbeam!
My neighbor Melissa texted me this week with a call for help. She'd trapped a turtle in a recycle bin — she'd rescued it as it was crossing the street — and was now trying to figure out what to do with it.
I realize even as I write that sentence that it's the most 2019 / first-world sentence ever ... isn't it?
Anyway, the gal was feisty. (The turtle, not Melissa.)
