I have been in many lists from other college and millennial bloggers, but I had yet to make a list of my own. I wanted to fix that this week and finally share a list of millennial bloggers that I think that my audience should check out. These bloggers will definitely help you survive your college/millennial years with grace and style. They have advice on everything like college, sorority life, career, and just general day to day life. I love all of these bloggers and you need to check them out if you haven't already heard of them.

 25 Millennial Bloggers I Love To Read | Do you need some blog recommendations? Click through for my list of 25 millennial bloggers that I love to read so you can read countless blogs on topics like college, fashion, beauty, working out, dating, sorority life, and so much more.

1. As Life Grows

I had to start off this list with fellow Arkansas native, Samantha from As Life Grows. She creates amazing college content on her blog and I think you will really love it. She delves deep on many of her pieces and in 2017 she has kept up her monthly themes which has been awesome for going deeper on all the subjects she discusses. 

If you are interested in graduate school, I love her post 5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Applying To Graduate School. I also really love her post 5 Signs You Might Be Studying Wrong (+ How To Stop).

2. A Wanderer's Adventures

Let's chat about Amelie from A Wanderer's Adventures. She has a ton of awesome content on her blog all about college lifestyle, her upcoming study abroad adventures, and so much more. With her upcoming study abroad session I am sure that she will have a lot to discuss while on her trip so follow her now so that you won't miss out.

She has so many awesome posts but I think my recent favorites are her 75 Things You Should Know Before College post and her 4 Ways To Boost Your Concentration While Studying post. She has also written a couple of pieces for this blog which you can find here.

3. Maya Fleming

Maya is another Arkansas native, but she is currently attending college at Georgetown University. Maya creates beautiful content on her blog Maya Fleming and you seriously need to check this chick out. She discusses everything from self-care to beauty to having a successful school year. 

If you are looking for reads I would suggest her post Back To School Outfit Inspiration For High School & College Students or her post 3 Ways To Look Expensive On A Budget.

4. Living in Full Bloom

Alyssa, the blogger behind Living In Full Bloom, is such a sweetheart with seriously amazing college advice and lifestyle content. I really love her college advice content because one of her jobs at Ball State University is being a Teaching Fellow which means she gets to helps tutor and mentor students and works closely with professors.

Of her recent content I really love her blog posts Tips For Commuting In College and 8 (More) Things To Let Go Of After High School.

5. Bookish & Bright

Alysha has some seriously amazing blog content on her site Bookish and Bright. She covers so much about studying, mental health, and just day to day millennial living. Plus, have you seen her Instagram page? It is seriously Instagram goals, y'all.

I love her post What's In My University Bag and her entire #HappyHealthyStudy blog series. Alysha has so much great content on dealing with mental health while in college and I love that it's such a big part of her blog.

6. The Preppy Scientist

Shontal from The Preppy Scientist is a really great blogger. She shares so many fun things from recipes to college lifestyle content to sorority stuff. Shontal lives in Canada and it's so interesting to see the similarities and differences in the Greek life system there and the one in America that I know more about. If you are interested in that, I would definitely encourage you to check out her blog.

Check out her posts Tips For Informal Sorority Recruitment or What's In My Makeup Bag.

7. When life Gives You Rubi

How do I explain my obsession with Rubi of When Life Gives You Rubi? She is the definition of authentic storytelling in my opinion. She is so real and down to earth with her readers and I love reading her blog and binging her Instagram stories. Seriously, you need to drop what you are doing and check her out.

As far as posts I have been loving lately, I love 11 Things To Do In Between Your College Classes and her post Why I Hated Every Moment Of Earning My Master's (don't worry, she also chats about why she did it anyway which I think is really important for people wanting to go to graduate school.)

8. Coming Up Roses

Erica from Coming Up Roses is another one of my favorite storytellers. She has great content in so many genres like blogging, fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. She has really created a nice internet home for herself, and I think that many of my readers would love her content. She is such an inspiration for me and has taught me so much about creating blog partnerships with brands that actually tell a story.

Check out her post Gallery Walls 101: How To Master A Gallery Wall With Shutterfly for some serious wallspiration. Also go check out her post Trends To Try: Denim On Denim and get out of your fashion comfort zone.

9. Southern Belle In Training

Looking for a total awesome blog babe, check out Annaliese from Southern Belle In Training. I have been following her journey for a few years now and it's been so cool to see her follow her dreams to be a radio personality while running her totally awesome lifestyle blog. She has beautiful photos and covers a wide array of topics from stuff dealing with her career as a radio personality to fashion to lifestyle content.

Check out her post Radio 101: What Does a Radio Personality Wear To Work? or Sunny Yellow Dress + Self Care in Busy Weeks for some fun reads!

10. The Swirl

The Swirl is a blog written by duo Gabby & Hannah. I love this blog because you get two voices for the price of one with this blog. There aren't many collaborative millennial blogs out there so I love that they both produce content equally for this blog. They talk about so many different topics like college, beauty, and lifestyle there.

Check out How To: A Study Plan For A 4.0 or A College Girl's Guide: What To Expect Your Freshman Year from their recent awesome posts.

11. Kayla Blogs

Kayla from Kayla Blogs has given so much to the millennial/college blogging community. One of her best contributions?

Kayla covers quite a few topics on her blog and her posts are always very thorough.

16. College With Caitlyn

Caitlyn's blog College With Caitlyn covers so many topics! Caitlyn discusses college, working out, dating, blogging, and so much more. Caitlyn's blog is cool becuase she covers a lot of things that many millennial bloggers don't cover extensively like working out and even dating. For many millennial bloggers you know this is a big part of their routine, but it's just not talked about much.

Some of my favorite posts are Friend Dates: What Are They And 15 Ideas! or How To Thrive In College Math Classes (I love this post because this is totally not in my wheelhouse so it's fun to read the perspective of a college math major.)

Jasmin of Macarons & Mascara covers so many topics that college students will love on her blog. Many of the posts that she creates are lengthy and full of information that will help college students thrive in college. If you are not reading this blog, you are missing out on great content!
