It’s 2018 and I’m not sure how I feel about newsletters. I’ve met too many people with inboxes filled with 300 unread emails, which makes me wonder whether anyone is actually reading them?
I receive way too many emails. So yesterday, I decided to give my inbox a good clean-up. Removing ads, promotions, and random company updates made me feel so much better. I am still receiving newsletters, mostly to keep up to date with topics I am interested in: tech, books, and women’s rights.
Here are some newsletters that I recommend:
Last month, I launched a newsletter for Cosymatters! Once a month, I share my most recent articles, links from around the web, fun facts, and extra stuff. All about entrepreneurship, mindfulness and gender equality.

Let me know in the comments if you are subscribed to any newsletter! I am curious to learn if you find them useful and interesting, or if you think they are completely pointless.
