Emma Social recap: The Donut Day edition

A roundup of links we loved this week

Here at Emma, there are some things we feel we can always get behind: Fantastic email marketing. High quality design. Cutting-edge tech innovation. Well-brewed craft beer. Lively debates about the relative merits of various karaoke classics. And, most importantly, National Donut Day.

If you’ve ever experienced the overwhelming need to spend a whole day celebrating fried dough (haven’t we all?), today is your chance. And in honor of this auspicious occasion, we’ve served up all of our favorite links from this week — hot, fresh and glazed to your liking. Check them out for yourself ... then grab a free donut from Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme before they run out!
