The Best Millennial Blogs (Resource)
I hit 3000 unique visitor mark in June without writing a single blog post.
Turned out more and more people are entering things like “millennial blogs in the uk”, “best millennial blogs uk” and “millennials uk” into Google.
Google thinks that I’m the best millennial blog in the UK. Fair enough and thank you.
There’s clearly a growing interest in understanding the millennial mindset in the UK and I was able to experience it first-hand through my site stats.
Interestingly, a year ago, when I started this blog, nobody even knew what “millennial” was.
Now, the UK’s national press is all over it and you know things are getting serious when the BBC, Telegraph, Independent or the Guardian write about millennials more than they should.
Google also thinks I’m pretty good at millennial work stuff. Grand!
My initial thought for this blog post was to put together a list of all the UK millennial blogs, but since there are not many of them/us (just me, pretty much), I decided to create a resource of “The Best Millennials Blogs Overall”.
Here it is:
#1 Y Pulse
Y Pulse is New York based agency providing strategic insights to marketers via their tools, data and research about Millennials.
Their blog is my go-to-site anything stats and research related.
#2 GEN Y GIRL
Probably my favourite one-man-band blog.
Gen Y Girl is Kayla Cruz. Twentysomething. Annoyed with corporate bs. Obsessed with Gen-Y. Letting current leadership know what Gen-Yers want. Not bratty. Just opinionated.

#9 THE UNLOST
It is a blog about the issues that young adults think about and sometimes don’t think other people are thinking about. Especially when you have an older generation telling us that what we consider are problems don’t count.

Living entrepreneurially is about working smarter and living better. Life Without Pants is itself a metaphor for living without restrictions.
A self-made entrepreneur, Matt spent the past several years living the “new” American dream, one that doesn’t involve climbing the corporate ladder or holding out for that gold watch and retirement plan – instead, paving my own road, learning new things, living fully, and taking on new challenges each day.

Then they started to travel… and things got REALLY interesting.

On this blog, we’ll work under the assumption that ‘work ethic’ does not really exist and has never existed.
Insightful blog I discovered via podcast.
