College-age bloggers?

Hello!!

I'm just curious as to whether or not there are other college-age students/writers who are bloggers as well. Kinda want to connect up, use this chance for working together, marketing, etc.

Thanks!!

Just post your link and your genre below!!

I have a couple of blogs but I find it too difficult to write in them consistently, which may be a wee ironic. The first blog I have is basically very generalized about my life and I guess I don't write much on it because I don't really like talking about my life. The second blog is for ideas and design inspiration for my apartment. It's aimed at others who are in their first apartments, too, how to do things on a budget, etc...

I find that I spend so much time studying about social media that it then becomes too meta to actually do my own blogging and whatnot.

I already graduated, but I am still college age. I haven't really written much of anything "original" before, but you can see my Scientifican blog if you click. It's not exactly fiction, my first two posts were just sort of informational stuff. Post #3 (the blog is brand new, it's the newest post still) is more humorous.

Hi guys! I am also one of those pesky undergrad students with a blog

I actually just recently started a series on young debut authors (i.e. college age) which might interest you. Last week I interviewed Jessica Khoury (22, author of debut novel Origin) and today my interview with Kat Zhang (21, author of debut novel What's Left of Me) just went up.

Oh, and I am also one of those followers Carissa was talking about, I really recommend you check out her blog!

I don't go to college, but I guess I'm college aged.

Cool! Thanks so much. I've always been wondering who is blogging out there, and what that could potentially lead to.

Do any of you here have a general ramble sort of blog? Where you go on about everything you have an opinion on?? Am starting one of those. Wondering how it goes.

I blog, not often, but I do.

My blog is my signature. Right now I'm blogging about working on a YA piece so it's more personal if you will.

I am. I've been blogging my entire college career (actually, since I was in HS) but recently started a new blog specifically for writing-related topics, including books.
