Content is the currency of the internet. Yet there’s so much out there these days, that finding interesting, relevant and, most importantly, curated articles is a full-time job. If you’re like us, you don’t have a ton of time to comb the World Wide Web every day, but you still want to read the good stuff. The goal, after all, is to find the right information, not all of the information.
Newsletters are the single best way to see the best stuff from every corner of the internet in one place. They’re like content cheatsheets. Blogs are a similar, slightly more exhaustive version of newsletters. Both deliver the interesting and relevant intel straight to your inbox in witty, readable, clever nuggets.
But picking the right content resource is like picking the right cable package; it all depends on your interests and habits. Sign up for too many and you’ll spend more time stressing over what to read than actual reading.
Here are my favorite newsletters and blogs. They cover every facet of my life, including my love for current events, technology, recruiting, business, and productivity. Reading them will no doubt make you smarter and better informed, but they’ll also give you fuel and inspiration for those rainy days when you’ve run out of ideas.
