More About Kill Jill

Kill Jill Goes To College is a number of different things.

1) It is a college blog, including helpful articles and links to college resources.

2) It is a personal blog, detailing my own experiences with college applications, bursaries and scholarships, acceptance, college life, classes, etc.

3) Lastly, it’s my first attempt at niche blogging. I’ve been personal-blogging for a few years now but thought maybe I would try something a little different.

So far, so good.

  • My most favorite things in the world are: writing, indie music, movies, musicals, photography, painting, design, and laughing at stupid people. Also chocolate cheese cake.
  • I wanted to be a rock writer/journalist, but my goals have changed a bit since then.

  1. Hi Jill– as a student blogger for several years now, just wanted to say keep it up! It can bring you more good than you might imagine–what started as a mundane attempt to chronicle my college admissions process turned into something that has gotten me jobs, connections, advertising dollars, and lots more. (All at ). Anyway, KEEP BLOGGING! is all I can say : )

  2. Jill,
    Great Blog! Would you take a look at our site: We have a free product for job seekers (college grads) – Video Career Profile. It is a link to a website with your resume, your video clip and a short “why you should hire me summary”. Employers are very impressed! I would love for you to check it out and give us feedback (and blog about it). I saw your comments on video blogging – I am going to try it this week. We shall see how it goes. I think you have to type up a summary to go with the Vblog for SEO, don’t you?

You and are seem to be working towards the same cause, aiding others in success through the sharing of our own knowledge and experiences. I was hoping you might be interested in trading blog links.
