It's no secret that I love to read. Between my personal email & my secondary Mailbrew inbox, I subscribe to over 70+ newsletters.
One of my tweets about my favorite newsletters once went viral, garnering almost 100k impressions. I often get questions from friends asking me for newsletter recommendations, so I thought I'd put together a list of my favorites.
In this post, I'll share the newsletters I look forward to receiving each week, by category. This comes after a serious purge.
The criteria I used to determine whether to keep newsletters or not:
- Have I read the last 3 issues?
- Do I learn something each issue?
I only recommend A-grade newsletters in my collection. Welcome to my gold mine:
