Due to a parking snafu, I’m currently at home instead of in class. But, I’m getting the opportunity to use the word “snafu,” so I guess everything is pretty okay with the world.
It’s Thursday, which breaks the MWF schedule, and breaks the yester-mentioned hiatus. But I think the schedule was to encourage more frequent posting – and the hiatus was because the schedule seemed like a set of deadlines… so maybe posting whenever is a better way to go about things.
Anyway, today’s post is inspired by an awesome email that I receive every day, and it’s pretty much the ONLY email I always read. Sometimes, I have to leave it ‘unread’ for a few days, but I always get around to it because I love it so much.
Netted by the Webbys. I have no idea what the origin of their catchy name is, but they are awesome. They are self described as “the unmissable daily e-mail introducing you to the best sites, apps and online stuff that make life better.” While I have some issues with their inclusion of the email-hyphen that I thought we’d long abandoned, not to mention their un-use of the oxford comma (apparently I give a fuck about the oxford comma, Vampire Weekend), I’ve gotta say: they hit the nail on the head.
I’ve discovered so many cool new apps, websites, and general awesomeness through Netted – and you’ve all benefitted as well. No fewer than some of my posts have been inspired by Netted recommendations.
They even include the occasional app or website discount code (almost always “netted”) for their subscribers.
And best of all, their writing style is that tongue-in-cheek, clever girl, witty, fantastic awesomeness we’ve come to know and love from folks like the Wooters, Grouponers, and the like. But half the time, Netted is recommending something free! So now you can have your humor, and your money too!
So yeah! Go check it out. Tell them I sent you. Maybe they’ll give me a job!
Any daily (or otherwise) emails you can’t miss? How about a blog you always read? (Other than this one, obviously.) Let me know below!
