Today is National Skimm Day (as declared by the ladies behind theSkimm) and I think their service is so fab that I’m writing a post so you guys will Skimm* with me. Give them your email address and each morning you will wake up with a daily news summary in your inbox. It’s a medley of politics, world news, business, celebrity tidbits, and sports. The language and descriptions are witty and sassy and it’s the best way I’ve found to keep up with what’s going on. I used to get all of my news from The Daily Show and Colbert Report, but the Skimm ladies have won my heart. Every Saturday I turn over in bed, grab my phone, and feel a little sad that I’ll have to wait until Monday to Skimm again.
This is not hyperbole. I really love the email that much.
Sign up here. That’s the link they gave me, although they didn’t offer me anything to share it with you. (Editor’s note: Oh wait, my email this morning said they are giving away prizes for people who refer lots of friends! Hopefully that will be me.) I want you to sign up because I think the women behind theSkimm are making the world a better place** and I hope they become rich and successful while doing it. I’m inspired by them.
*Using that as a verb is quite fun. I’d like to verbify something I create.
**Smaltzy, I know. But they’re educating people, specifically women, on world events in an engaging way unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. And they’re doing it in a non-partisan way, which I admire.
