39. Subscribe to The Dolly Mail
Newsletters are back and a million times better than the ones that circulated when our parents were in middle school. Why? Mainly because, this time around, they’re personal. Now, rooted in honesty, great writing and emotional vulnerability, they read like personal emails and offer subscribers insight into the author’s experiences and realizations. Enter Dolly Alderton. This U.K. columnist’s weekly newsletter, The Dolly Mail, features not only essays written about and by Alderton (which would be worth subscribing to in its own right) but also guest essayists, recipes and shopping tips. It’s arguably the digital equivalent to hanging out at your best friend’s house, rifling through her closet and coming away with newfound understanding about dating, work or simply existing in the world.
Plus, its illustrations are lovely.
