Every morning I wake up and immediately check my phone. This is probably a habit I should break, but these email blasts always seem to put my day on the right track! So here it is, the email blasts that I think are a necessity on a daily basis!
1. the Skimm
The motto of this company is “We read. You Skimm” and the founders Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin truly stick to this concept. Every morning theSkimm compiles the biggest headlines and sends out a daily newsletter with all the major highlights. Keeping up with current events is made easy with The Skimm, even if you are constantly on the go! All you have to do to get started is subscribe to theSkimm.
2. Real Simple – Daily Thought Newsletter
This is probably my favorite of all the email blasts I receive. My mom used to send me these quotes every so often when she felt they rang true to a problem I was facing or would give me a little motivation. Quickly after receiving multiple quotes that I liked, I signed up to receive my own Daily Thoughts from Real Simple. As you have probably noticed from my Wordy Wednesday posts, I love inspirational quotes. Reading these unique quotes on a daily basis can really start your day off on the right foot or simply give you something new to consider. The Daily Thought newsletter is easy to sign up for, and one that I cannot recommend enough!
3. Jenny Blake: Life After College Inside Scoop
Jenny Blake is the author of “Life After College”, a career/business strategist speaker, and a life coach. I came across Jenny’s website a while back, but was lucky enough to see her speak live at the Her Campus conference last summer. She is incredibly motivating and has so many tips and tricks to organize your life and work to achieve your goals. I signed up for her Life After College Inside Scoop Newsletter on a whim, but they have become a source of some of the most interesting articles that I read. The posts in each newsletter includes articles on a range of topics from “How to Conquer Your Fear of Public Speaking” to Jenny’s latest obsessions, including Hanx Writer: A new app created by Tom Hanks that “recreates the experience of a manual typewriter, but with the ease and speed of an iPad.” I highly recommend this newsletter to post grads because it focuses on many hopes and fears we face as we try to figure out our next move!
4. Clementine Daily
Clementine Daily is a blog that offers up everyday inspiration through home decor, food & beverage, and self & wellness. This modern blog is filled with interesting articles and a manifesto that rings true to all modern women (and is basically me in a nutshell!). It is hard to describe how much I like reading Clementine Daily, so you will have to sign up for their newsletter to experience it for yourself!
5. Ad Age Daily
This daily email blast is focused on advertising, marketing, digital, and media. If you are even remotely interested in these industries, this newsletter is a great way to stay on top of the latest news. Advertising Age will keep you up to date on your favorite companies trends and changes. It also compiles interesting lists, such as “The Best Places to Work” or “The Most Promising Fall TV Shows.” If you are looking for a career in these industries, be sure to add Ad Age daily emails to your inbox to stay in the know!
I hope that each of these email blasts provides you with something new and interesting in your inbox each morning. What are some of your favorite email blasts?
