Life is busy. And there is major information overload these days through social media. Sometimes the information is so overwhelming, people prefer to tune it out completely. But it’s good to get information in tolerable doses, and that’s not just the news. As much as I’d love to read a full newspaper each day, research in trade magazines, and catch up on that stack of fashion magazines I subscribe to but can’t seem to find time to open, the reality is, I just don’t have the time. Luckily, a great trend in daily digest emails has made it easy for me to get the information I need and want without scouring the Internet to find it. I have found a digest for all different genres to round out my daily knowledge.
For Traditional News:
What It Is:
A quick read on the goings on of the world. It’s [relatively] neutral, punny, and includes important world and domestic news in a quick, easy-to-read format with links to full articles.
For Fashion/Pop Culture:
What It Is:
Relatively new, The Newsette is a fashion and pop-culture focused digest that gives a brief rundown of everything happening in the fashion world (think more Marc Jacobs collabs, less Kim K nonsense). It also has inspiring Instagram feed recommendations, and has a really cool new day-in-the-life section on women in various roles and industries, from powerhouse brands to entry-level “regular girl” stories. Their website is full of awesome content, too.
For Real Estate Industry News:
What It Is:
Globe St. is a well-known commercial real estate publication and it has a really cool opt-in for email digests based on various industry-types (retail, industrial, multifamily), geographical locations, etc. You have to create a login, but it’s free. This one comes in the form of headline-only digests, so anything you want to read more on, you have to click through to the article. You used to have to sign in every time you clicked on an article, but thankfully, they recently changed that and you are logged in automatically when you click the article link so now it’s easier to read what you want.
For Business News:
What Is Is:
CPG Insights comes from CB Insights, which is a private market database provider. CPG Insights is focused on consumer packaged goods, startups, and other innovation. It’s longer than the other digests, but has easy-to-browse content on interesting startups from all different industries.
