I’m sure you can relate in the fact that some days you don’t want to open a news site because it is going to be a vile sight. We’ve had a challenging year in the news cycle for sure, but it’s really because of that fact that we should be immersed in what’s happening in Washington and around the world.
I’ve struggled this year with staying up to date on the hoards of news outlets out there. I used to have a paper subscription to the Wall Street Journal, and I tried a one-month trial of The New York Times, but again and again I kept coming back to the fact that I don’t want to pay for news articles when there are endless new sources online that share articles without fees. These are the top three places I’ve personally found for news consumption.
Axios is a site that I visit to get the top headlines listed out in a digestible way that lets you pick and choose which articles you’d like to read in more depth. The site also offers daily themed newsletters that cover every topic from Market Trends to Science to Sports, but I find that I don’t really read newsletters so I haven’t signed up for them.
Five Smart Reads
Hitha Palepu is the CEO, investor, author & blogger behind Hitha On The Go who started Five Smart Reads on her Instagram account. Every morning on her Instagram Story, she links out to 5 of the most poignant stories of the day. I usually open the articles and then save them to my Instapaper account to read later. They are always intelligently curated and range from topics like healthcare and politics to beauty and women in business.
My Amazon Echo
I love my Amazon Echo for a plethora of reasons, but one reason in particular is because I can say “Alexa, what’s my morning news?” and it gives me a rundown of the top headlines from sites like CNN, The Skimm, and Wall Street Journal.
