So another year has come to an end and with that, another name change…yes, we are now 20somethings in 2014. (Is it just me, or does each year seem to go by faster?)
I spent much of 2013 building up this blog by writing numerous articles, as well as reaching out to fellow 20-somethings and asking them to share their experiences and opinions on beginning their careers in today’s economy.
I’m proud to say that my hard work has paid off. Around a month ago, this blog hit a major milestone: its 100th 20something profile. The blog now contains stories from over a hundred 20somethings in eleven different countries. Read the rest of this entry
On Wednesday, I posted the 100th 20something profile to be featured on my blog. When I started my blog in July of last year, I didn’t know how I was going to get ten people to contribute, let alone a hundred.
But almost a year-and-a-half later, this blog contains stories of 100 twenty-somethings in 11 countries (US, UK, Nicaragua, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Nigeria, India, Singapore, the Netherlands, and Canada).
I’ve had contributors in a variety of fields, including journalism, fashion, animation, film, theatre, radio, military, advertising, marketing, PR, education, finance, retail, graphic design, and nonprofit, among many others. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve found out that Tiffany of One Girl’s Journey to 30 has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. The purpose of this blog is to inspire people in their twenties, so I’m really proud to be getting this recognition. Special thanks to Tiffany for nominating me, and I encourage you to check out her blog.
The rules for accepting this nomination are to list seven interesting facts about yourself and to nominate fifteen other blogs for the award. So I’ll begin with the seven facts: Read the rest of this entry
Patch.com, a local news website owned by AOL, recently published an article that I wrote about 20somethings in 2013:
Twenty-somethings: A Personal Perspective (norwalk.patch.com)
The Patch sites for Norwalk, CT, and the surrounding areas will also be cross-publishing posts that were written for this blog.
Hopefully, this partnership will provide 20somethings in 2013 — and its stories of twenty-somethings in this economy — with greater exposure. I also hope it will also encourage more twenty-somethings to share their stories.
Rebecca Fraser-Thill of the blog Career Avoidance 101 nominated 20somethings in 2013 for the Versatile Blogger Award. A special thanks to Rebecca for the nomination, and I hope you check out her blog for some great advice and perspectives on starting out in this economy.
The rules for accepting the award require me to nominate fifteen other blogs and write seven interesting facts about myself (I’ve already written eleven facts about myself for the Liebster Award, so hopefully I won’t run out of interesting stuff when I’m writing these).
So these are seven more facts about myself: Read the rest of this entry
Ally Denton, who wrote a profile of herself, has nominated 20somethings in 2013 for the Liebster Award. I’d like to thank Ally for the nomination, and I encourage you to check out her blog allydenton.com
To accept the nomination, I need to answer 11 questions that Ally has posed, and I also need to nominate 11 other blogs for the award and ask them 11 questions (edit: I neglected to mention this originally, but the blogs you nominate are supposed to have fewer than 200 followers).
Ally’s questions were to give 11 facts about yourself, so here they are: Read the rest of this entry
Under30Careers, a career website for twenty-somethings, published an article that I wrote about 20somethings in 2013:
Optimizing Opportunity as a Recent College Graduate (under30careers.com)
In the article, I discuss my motivations for creating this blog, and I also explore some common themes I’ve noticed in the profiles that have been posted here. (I even reference a few profiles as examples.)
I’d like to thank Under30Careers for giving me the opportunity to write about 20somethings in 2013, and I encourage twenty-somethings to check out their informative website for career advice and job postings.
