    We all know how annoying it is to log into our inboxes every morning and see a few (or a lot of) random newsletters sitting there that we don’t even remember subscribing to. If you do remember subscribing to them, you might be disappointed to see their content isn’t what you were hoping for.

    What if I told you there are some daily newsletters out there you’ll enjoy reading and will learn a lot from? Here are nine great daily newsletters you’ll love subscribing to.


    1. The Daily Skimm

    This daily newsletter will hit your inbox each weekday morning. Every newsletter features five or six top news stories along with a little breakdown of what the issues are and why they are important.

    I appreciate that The Daily Skimm links to reputable outside sources, so you know you’re getting accurate information. It breaks current events down and makes them easier to digest. You’ll also get a cool daily quote with each edition.

    Here Are A Few Recent Subject Lines From The Daily Skimm:

    • NRA Lawsuit, Trump’s TikTok Order, and “E! News” Canceled
    • Schools, Trump’s Financial Records, and Lifetime’s First LGBTQ+ Holiday Movie
    • Evictions, China, and Taylor Swift’s New Album

    If you get a little overwhelmed by a constant flow of news like I do, subscribe to The Daily Skimm.

    2. Morning Brew

    This is another informative daily newsletter that’ll make you feel a little smarter every time you read it. Morning Brew breaks down their information into sections like Tech, Economy, and Education. Like The Daily Skimm, this newsletter links to trusted outside sources to help you get more information.

    Plus, they sprinkle a few topical GIFs and witty quips in each issue. It’s an excellent read for anyone wanting to catch up on the news quickly.

    Here Are A Few Recent Subject Lines From Morning Brew:

    • SnapTok – Google launches a $350 phone…
    • Instagram is reeling – Why did Netflix stock drop?
    • Game, set, match – What’s worse than rising seas?

    Subscribe to Morning Brew for a steaming cup of info Monday through Saturday.

Each edition of Atlas Obscura includes info about the neatest travel destinations and travel news. Even if you aren’t looking to plan a trip right now, this newsletter is still so fun to read!

    This is one of my favorite daily newsletters on this list. Album Daily will deliver a new album suggestion to your inbox every single day. Each newsletter edition includes an album suggestion and a short description of the album, along with links to where you can listen to it.

    I love that Album Daily also gives you a shortlist of top tracks from each album they feature and suggests similar artists.

    Here Are A Few Albums Recently Highlighted By Album Daily:

    • Superbloom- MisterWives
