A Look Back. And the Way Forward.

A Decade of Skimm'ng. The stakes are high. Stay informed. Live smarter.
July 18, 2022

July 18 marks 10 years of theSkimm. We couldn’t have gotten to this moment without your support and enthusiasm. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

In the last decade, we’ve gone through a lot – as a company, as leaders, and as people. Yet our mission and vision have remained true since we hit send on the first Daily Skimm newsletter 10 years ago: to empower generations of informed, confident women and make it easier to live smarter. To date, you have opened 2.7 billion Daily Skimm emails, participated in 1.4 million minutes of Skimm events, purchased 1 million products through our commerce business, and taken over 1 million actions related to voting over the last three election cycles alone.

We’ve accomplished a lot together. But we’re not done. What started out as a morning newsletter has since grown into a multi-platform, digital media company for a community of millions. Together we’re taking on money, wellness, career and elections, to name a few. Getting smarter about everything from homebuying to crypto to fertility planning, with more to come. And we don’t take that responsibility lightly – or for granted. As we look ahead, we’re dedicated to ensuring every woman has the information she needs to navigate our complex world – and the difficult decisions in it. The world is changing. And while a lot may feel out of our control right now, now’s not the time to look away. It’s our future on the line.

Thanks for being with us these last 10 years. And thanks for continuing to take action with us in the next decade and beyond. Pssst…This is your reminder to mark your calendars for the primaries and midterms, check your voter registration and get informed with us on all things election.
