I subscribe to quite a few news and corporate website emails including those I agree with and those I don’t, because, ‘know your enemy’. But also I like to be sure I have a better understanding of their goals and plans in order to discuss topics fairly. By getting the information straight from the source, you can be sure it’s not biased, at least not against them.
When I scan the email titles, it can be entertaining at times so I thought I would share.

Obviously I don’t have time to read all these. I pick and choose according to my current interests.
What kinds of emails do you get and which ones do you actually read? Do you use an email list for your blog? If so what do you send out? How many emails are in your Inbox today? I have 3549. That’s a low number because this is a fairly new laptop. 🙂
I get news from the times, the journal and amny. I get member emails from roundabout theater, metropolitan museum of art, Carnegie hall and Brooklyn botanic and film forum. I get emails because I go from New York botanic, Lincoln center, the zoo, two discount ticket apps, Whitney, Guggenheim and MOMA. Eater and thrilling. Goodreads and Barnes and noble and Reese’s book club. Live nation concert and Ticketmaster. PetSmart and Amazon. And stitch fix. I have about 1000 saved emails in specific folders but twenty in my inbox. I unsubscribe to things fairly regularly
You are having fun! I meant to tell you that my sister bought tickets to one of the things you suggested. I think it was Platonic or something like that?
Oh the exhibit at the library?! It’s so cool! So much stuff!
Oh, yes, Polonsky I think.
I spend all my free time reading YOUR blog! 😂
☺️ Thank you !
