5 Websites You Need in Your Life
News silos quickly became a buzzword after the 2017 election but it’s not a new term. Social Media has allowed us to become content curators and that’s not a bad thing, but it does mean that we are actively choosing the type of content we consume.

The moment a user feels that they can’t trust one type of content on a network, that’s the moment it starts to become a less reliable content tool.
How do we solve this? By actively choosing to vary our content.
This is part of being a good content curator, something I’ve talked a lot about in my digital tutorial videos and blogs. By that, I mean that it is important to find sources you trust and that are aligned with your overall messaging.
Who has the time to sift through all of this information? <<-- is what you’re probably thinking. And you’re right. It’s a lot of work so I’m doing some of the work for you and sharing some great content providers for you to consider adding to your “to read” list.
Huffington Post Women
The Huffington Post Women made a name for itself during the election. I’m a big fan of their Facebook page and think it’s a great addition to my Facebook feed. I set my Facebook feed up in a very interesting way for productivity and I’ll share that tip at a later date!
The Muse is a great place to find career advice. From how to train your interns (written by yours truly) to an email round-up of the best companies hiring, this site is a great one to learn more about industry trends and how to optimize your career/business strategy.
Another site focused on helping women get ahead in the workplace (including this making your salary work for you piece by yours truly), Levo also features important lifestyle news to help you stay informed about issues that will affect the way you earn and learn.
The Daily Beast
I’ve been reading The Daily Beast on and off since college. It is not my primary source of news but it does give me a sense of what people are talking about and what to do more research on.
Another one that I’ve been reading for a while, The Skimm is a free newsletter that skimms the news for you. It’s another great way to prep for watercooler conversation at the office or on a date.
