Caitlin Leong: “I love reading the verge! It’s a blog site that writes on a wide range of topics from reviews to designing. I always find myself reading something really astonishing when I’m on the site… like, check this out: First Functional Eukaryotic-Chromosome (how cool is that?). Anyways, if you’re ever bored in class or something check it out because you won’t be disappointed.”




For Avid-Writers: Medium

Dalena Nguyen: “Medium is definitely not a traditional blogging platform (or blogging medium… heh) – I think of it as a kind of grown-up Tumblr. Writers are free to publish whatever they like and these posts are sorted into curated “collections” spanning topics from personal growth to marketing to thought-provoking editorials. With diverse writers and a wide array of topics to read up on, everyone can find an interesting read on Medium!”



For Student Life, and Fashion Tips: College Fashion

Therese Mah: “I really like College Fashion because besides keeping me updated on what’s trendy, they mix it up with student life articles and have some fun blending literature/pop culture with fashion (for example they’ll do a post with some outfits inspired by classic novels like The Great Gatsby)”



Everything Gaming Related: DualShockers

Zac LaRocque-Walker: “I am a fan of DualShockers as I am primarily a PlayStation gamer, having a PS4 and Vita as my main systems right now. However, I also have a WiiU, 3DS and 360 so I like other news as well. DualShockers is mainly a PlayStation site but will also post other key news pieces related to other systems. The articles and reviews are well-written and fairly entertaining. I like it.”



The Vancouver Staple: VancityBuzz

MFoodie: “I enjoy reading vancity buzz because it provides updates/posts on our community in Vancouver. This is where I usually get my updates on major events and good eats in vancouver. Their brief content, use of attractive headlines and photos in their posts makes it fun to read.”
