Today, I am revisiting a blog I posted about months ago and for good reason. This week marks the first week of my last semester of college, so I thought it would be appropriate to revisit one of my favorite blogs: The College Prepster.
Even though the author Carly graduated college last May, she still blogs about college-related things. Just recently, Carly posted about study tips and back to school clothes. While I love looking at her blog for other reasons, I think it’s great she still sticks to the roots of her blog and writes on topics that many of her readers relate to.
She has a list of INTENSE STUDY TIPS, a lot of organizing tips to keep you focused on studying and so you don’t forget dates or deadlines, and a list of Apps that are helpful for school.
Since Carly graduated over a year ago and has had a job working in NYC for exactly one year, she does not post much about college or give school advice as much. However, I love the things she posts about. She’s been talking a lot more about fashion and clothing and about what she does in NYC.
Carly posts a lot about work, which is great for me since I am hoping to have a job come December after I graduate. She gives advice on stuff ranging from what Shoes to wear for interviews and jobs to a list of apps that show all How to Feel Like an Adult.
I definitely see myself using the advice she gives (and she gives a lot on all sorts of topics) in my future.
Since I am writing this blog for a college course I am taking, I figured I should write about a college-related blog. Fortunately, I happen to follow one of those. It’s called College Prep. Why, you ask? Because the author, Carly, is very preppy and started her blog her first year of college.
Even though Carly is no longer in college, she still posts great tips for staying organized, getting work done, and more. While she was in college, she wrote some great posts about how to handle course loads, the best ways to study, and how to still have fun while doing all of that.
While the blog has a heavy focus on school work (and now real world work), Carly puts a heavy emphasis on fashion. I mean, it is called College Prep after all. She always makes lists of her favorite clothing items, new trends, and cute stuff that’s new in preppy stores like J. Crew and Kate Spade.
Carly’s February Favorites
There are other reasons I love the College Prep blog besides all of her great work and fashion tips. For one, she just moved to NYC. She is from Florida and went to college in D.C., but she just happened to move to NYC when she graduated. How great! A blog I already followed just moved to NYC, so now I have even more coverage of my favorite city.
Another reason I follow her blog is because it’s focused on what people my age care about since Carly is my age. Many of the blogs I follow focus on family and children, which is not relevant to my life at this time. I would highly recommend that people in college or recent college graduates check out College Prep, as well.
