I feel like I get behind on what is happening in the world.
Yes, I have the Today Show on in the background when I am getting ready for my day but I am often multitasking and miss a lot of what is being said.
Unless the puppy is on. Then I am 100% engaged.
When I came across this news service the other day called The Skimm I knew it was for me.
They send you an email with the highlights of the days happenings in national news. Each highlight is about a paragraph and it contains a link to a deeper story or a related story if the reader would like more info.
I have added 5 minutes to my morning computer routine (responding to personal emails, checking in on the checking account and paying some bills...) and now I feel like I know what is going on in the world.
I encourage you to sign up for the subscription and get the Skimm.
I was not paid or compensated in any way for this recommendation.
