posted on September 8, 2020 | by Heather Bien
The well-curated newsletter is having a moment –– again. Climbing out from years of overflowing unread numbers and far too many promo emails, millennial readers have now resurrected an appreciation for news, stories, and brilliant finds delivered straight to our inbox.
Perhaps it’s because we’re the generation of storytelling and insightful content marketing, but we can’t get enough of these smart and thought-provoking newsletters. Whether we’re looking for a new artist to discover, a rundown on breaking news stories, a budget-friendly dress to complete our pandemic wardrobe or fresh business tips, these are the newsletters that are a breath of fresh air each time we open our email.
Girls’ Night In: The newsletter that has embraced a lifestyle and sparked a community, Girls’ Night In covers mental health, self care, friendship, and everything that makes up the cozy life at home. You’ll find wise words from guest editors, wellness products, and tips on what you should be reading, watching, and listening to you on your next [girls’ night in].
Hitha On the Go: Hitha Palepu is a force in the world of female writers and creatives. She’s an entrepreneur, CEO, investor, former blogger, podcast host, and, of course, newsletter editor.
