Things I Love: theSkimm & USA Today's "5 things you need to know"

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Keeping up with daily news and current events is really important, because if for no other reason that's what responsible adults do. I don't have time to turn the TV on in the morning and watch the news so I took my mom's recommendation (Thanks Mom!) and started subscribing to theSkimm.

theSkimm is a daily email newsletter that gives you all of the news you need to start your day! I enjoy it because it's pretty witty and keeps me up-to-date on all news from pop culture and elections to UN and international issues. I also like it because it has lots of links to background information in a story, which is helpful in catching up. Here's some pics of yesterday's the Skimm.

That's just a part of the newsletter, but I thought that would give you a good idea of the content and how it's written. To subscribe for theSkimm go here!

Another one of my favorite news sources is USA Today's series, "5 Things You Need To Know." It gives me a quick blurb about the five most important things I need to know that day and does a good job of giving background info as well. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a way to subscribe to this column. It would be nice if they sent this in a daily newsletter as well. 

Don't get confused, this is from a couple of weeks ago.

Plus they give you the essentials:
Of course on a perfect day I look at other news sources, but when I'm running late and/or just don't have the time these are my two go-to's. I hope these are helpful!
