Wanted to share about a terrific little newsletter I discovered. I like to be informed, but frankly, the news wears me out. Or, maybe it’s my husband’s obsession passion about current events and Biblical prophecy that wear me out. In any case, this little gem is perfect for me to keep up with current events without the major news overload or annoyance with Megyn Kelly‘s disdain for non-vaxers and her flowing golden locks.*
theSkimm is all news, no spin. Sometimes a little sassy, but that’s all good. It will come to your inbox Monday-Friday. No plugs, pleads or anything else. Just news. You can sign up with my Skimmbassador link and help me get my tote bag, because, you know, I cannot have enough tote bags 🙂 This is the only referral link you will find on my blog, unless it’s on the sidebar.
Info from their About Me page:
Two friends in our 20s, who hail from New York and Chicago.
Our startup romance is one for the books — we met on a rainy day in Rome while we were both studying abroad in college. We bonded over a mutual love of fried artichokes. What we didn’t know as we struggled to order in Italian, was that we’d reconnect years later working in our own country’s capital. By that point, we had become professional storytellers, as producers for NBC News — working in breaking news, political news, and documentaries. We clicked as colleagues, as friends, and as roommates, and it didn’t take long for theSkimm to take off from our living room couch.
News is not only our career, it’s our passion. Because of this, we have always been the go-to source for friends seeking the scoop on current events or breaking news. We soon realized three things: Reading the news is time consuming; Wanting to read the news is a hobby; lastly, not everyone has the time or interest.
In our spare time (which is rare) we can be found spooking each other with “Law & Order: SVU” marathons and trying to scheme our way into a free Equinox membership.
For two girls who grew up more “Morning Glory” than “The Social Network,” it took a lot of guts, and white wine, for us to make theSkimm a reality.
*DISCLAIMER: I do normally like Megyn and all, but completely disagree with her stance on vaccinations. That is all.
