Can you believe this is already my 100th post on A Wanderer’s Adventures?! I sure can’t! I can’t believe I’ve had this little corner of Internet for almost two years. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far! I’ve tried several times to have a blog before, but I never kept it as long and invested in it as much as I did with one. Who would have thought that almost two years later, I would be writing this post? If you had asked me at the very beginning, I would have told you that of course, I would be a super famous blogger (let’s laugh at that for a minute) by now, but deep down, I knew I would probably give this up in a couple of weeks. You have no idea how glad I am that I didn’t give up! A Wanderer’s Adventures has allowed me to make friends with people from all over the world, to express myself in a creative and fun way, and to help thousands of students and young women. I would never have been able to achieve that had I not continued working hard on this blog.
To celebrate my 100th post, I thought I would do a little blogging recap of some of my favorite and best blog posts. View Post
I don’t like to think about it too much, but eventually, college is going to come to an end. It might be a year away for me, but I know a lot of college bloggers (and college students in general) are graduating this year. I don’t know about you, but just the thought of having to do into the adult world is kind of scary. Hell, I’m going through it right now (even if I’m still a college student), and I can tell you, this is not easy.
With graduation comes living on your own. People don’t tell you this very often, but it takes a lot of things to furnish your first apartment. And there are a lot of big purchases that you have to plan ahead, otherwise, you’ll end up broke in no time. So what are the biggest purchases you’ll have to make after graduation? Let’s take a look.

We’ve talked in the past about how important a resumé is for college students, and how to write a killer one, even if you think you have no experience (reminder: you DO have experience!!). Resumes are your first contact with your future employer and can determine whether or not you get an interview. It’s important to make sure you convey a strong first impression on paper, so the employer wants to see more and get to know you. But what do you put on your resume, especially when you’re a college student with next to no experience? These 9 resume boosters will help you make a strong first impression and get the interview!
I’ll admit it, ever since I’ve started this internship, I’ve been pretty bad at keeping my goals for the new year. I’ve been so focused on surviving now that I’m living on my own and kick ass at this internship that I’ve lost sight of my goals (and most of my goals were blog-centered, as I thought 2017 would finally be “the year of the blog”).
After my traffic has skyrocketed in December and January, I thought that it would easy-peasy to reach all of the goals I had set at the beginning of the year.
BOY WAS I WRONG.
February rapidly brought me back to reality. My stats have dropped, and I’ve let the blog (among other things) to the side. I feel like my internship is stealing all of my energy, motivation, and creativity. And I’m not proud of that.
Am I the only one who ever felt like life was getting in the way of my goals?
But today, this stops. I’m regaining control of my life, and I’m more motivated than ever to reach my goals! So I’m teaching you to do the same, in the hope that you’ll be able to reach your goals, too!
Can you believe that it’s been almost two years since I’ve started this blog?! I sure as hell can’t. It’s the first time that I carry out a project like that without quitting after a few months (
weeks, AHEM). Sure, I’ve had my ups and downs. I’ve taken countless breaks, I’ve thought about quitting more than I care to admit, I’ve wanted to change everything and start all over… but I’ve also moved to self-hosted, 60x my pageviews, and met incredible people through this little hobby of mine.
To celebrate my upcoming blog’s second anniversary, I thought I would share with you 6 lessons I’ve learned in the past two years as a blogger. View Post
