4 Newsletters Worth Subscribing To In 2017

It’s hard to be well-read when you’ve got a lot of things on your plate and you’re perpetually adding more. Newsflash: Being busy doesn’t have to be bad, it just means you need to be smart about how you spend your time. Newsletters make that easy to do.
These newsletters take the extra work out of being knowledgeable, letting you wake up to something inspiring, fun, informational, you name it. I’m notoriously picky about what I like in my inbox and these have lasted the test of time–some have lasted for months and some have even lasted years.
