I have gotten really into signing up for newsletters’, blogs’, and discount services’ daily notifications. I like them all for different reasons, and I have a few I really like and plan to keep, and a few others I plan to rotate out every few months in search of better newsletters, blogs, etc.

One subscription I am very happy to have made is receiving the Writer’s Almanac. It comes into my inbox every day in the wee hours between 1 and 3 am and I usually save reading it to pull up and read while I’m on the subway. If I’m at home, I can stream Garrison Keeler’s sweet voice and hear the information that way. Included in the podcast and text version, I am sent a daily poem, and information about things that happened and people who were born on this day in history. And it’s always awesome information! It’s quick, informative, and I’m happier after reading it.

Today I received an inspiring poem by Ron Padgett from his book “How to be Perfect” it is basically a poem in a list form poetically written. I think I may think over it and post my own in the near future.

I have a few other subscriptions I love and adore, and I encourage you to research things you are interested in, though you may not know much about, and expand your knowledge by subscribing to a newsletter, blog, RSS feed, etc.

Work hard. Play hard. And love often.
