The Pool makes interesting, inspiring, original content for busy women.
The Pool is a blog that covers all topics relevant to busy women around the world. The site contains regularly-updated articles split across multiple categories: “News & Views,” “Fashion,” “Beauty,” “Life,” “Arts & Culture,” “People,” and “Food & Home.” The tone of the site ranges from serious, analytical news articles to more irreverent posts with headlines like “Why is the term dadbod so brilliantly perfect?” Taking a cue from Medium, The Pool also clearly outlines the estimated amount of time that it will take to read an article, which range from short quotes (30 sec) to longer reads (~15 min).
Keeping with its theme of catering to busy women, The Pool releases content on a 24-hr schedule. It plans these posts in advance, giving readers a chance to look forward to articles that will be added to the site in the future. It’s an interesting take on the typical publishing method, and it’s likely effective in getting readers to return to the site at pre-determined times. Users can also add articles to their “Scrapbooks,” which stores their favorite articles or articles that they want to read at a later time. You can also sign up for the site’s newsletter to have all the articles sent to you. With all of its awesome content and its incredibly organized schedule, The Pool is definitely worth diving into.
