It’s Theme Reveal Day for the April A to Z Challenge!
I’ll spare you the drumroll: my theme is All Things College.
Even though I’m a full-time student, I only write about my experiences occasionally. I also rarely read college bloggers. There are obviously exceptions (ahem, see below), but often college bloggers tend to post a combination of these:
- Generic listicles like “22 Things You MUST Do During Freshman Year!”
- Monologues of the mundane details of their days. Rants about exam stress or boyfriend problems abound.
- Tips for studying or dorm room organization. Note that they highly recommend planners and Post-It notes. It’s revolutionary, really.
- Advice for how to dress “comfy-chic.” My constant uniform of jeans (if I’m out), sweats (if I’m in), and the same 7 tops in rotation is about as comfy and chic as my brainpower can muster.
But college is WAY more than those things.
And I’ve got guest bloggers. Five incredible ladies who took my tougher letters and are making them their own. I don’t pretend my college experience is universal, so I wanted to feature other voices–plus, these four years are all about reaching out and forming long-lasting bonds.
Amy from The Kaleidoscoper was one of my very first blog friends and runs an excellent and thought-provoking blog about relationships, mental health, and leaving Christianity.
Amanda from Amanda Under Construction is one of my best friends in real life–she lives in my dorm and we often stay up late to discuss writing and the world.
Becca from Self-Reliance is a YouTube friend from way back in the day. Some day we’ll meet. We WILL. In the meantime, she’ll be here for a day.
Minnat from Yours Truly, Minnat has been long-form blogging her way through freshman year and all the emotions that come along with it.
If you’re doing the April A to Z Challenge, leave a comment with a link to your theme reveal (you may need to type something besides the link so it isn’t caught in my spam filter) so I can come visit your blog and be in awe at how awesome and creative you are!
