Let’s just put it out there…there are A LOT of daily newsletters and content aggregators/creators out there. The problem is that I have not found one that I connect with. Either they are too narrow in focus, too snarky in tone, too uninteresting or they arrive at the crack of dawn and by the time I get to them I’ve already been informed of all of their stories thanks to my twitter peeps.
So, it is with great excitement that I say I have FINALLY found THE daily news source worth reading. They just launched in Chicago a few weeks ago. They already have NY and LA editions that are highly followed.
Time To Sign Off (Chicago) is really a unique one. First of all, it comes at 8pm making it “The last email of the day” which is exactly when I want it to arrive. The content is broken up global, national, local and it’s always information that came in well after I logged off twitter so it’s bridging the news gap for me.
There are a few features that I love the most. The 9 to Know which is an amazing curated list of 9 “somethings” you need to know in Chicago. I might be a bit partial to that right now since this blog is listed as 1 of the 9 to Know blogs in Chicago but whatever. ;)
I also love the Who’s Next in Chi section which features an interview with some badass Chicagoan that is doing amazing things. I mean who among us does not want to see real-life Chicagoans get a major shout out?
Lastly, Tonight’s Track hooks you up with a free tune from an up-and-coming awesome singer/band. LOVE THAT.
I know I’m gushing but I have searched long and hard for a newsletter that gives me what I want and now that I found it I feel I must spread the joy! Sign up People. Sign Up.
