Nowadays, note-taking is considered to be a form of art. Students from all around the world have hopped on the bandwagon of bullet journaling and creating aesthetically pleasing notes, showcasing their artistic abilities with white index cards and colorful Mildliners. They post their notes on social media as a way of encouraging their viewers and followers to work harder. These study bloggers appear on either YouTube, Tumblr, or Instagram, hence the following portmanteaus: studytubes, studyblrs, and studygrams. Study blogs have redefined the online study community, helping students to become more motivated and improve their work ethic. For this reason, we have compiled a list of helpful study blogs that Bearcats can scroll through to gain inspiration, continue to be productive, and be on top of their work!
