On Millennial Writers
Depending on your source, millennials (Generation Y or Net Generation) can be placed from the early 1980s to the late 1990s. However, the timeline from 1980 to 1998 is more sensible if we think of millennials as a generation born, nurtured, and grown-up before the turn of the new millennium. They are the last born species of the 20th century.
Being a millennial born in the late 1980s, JP grew up in the age when new technologies were rising and changing our world. The generation perceives to have different upbringing affecting the workplace, culture, and society. The Net Generation is taking the stage in every aspect of our modern life. They are the successors of the baby boomers and Generation X. Millennials are matured enough to guide Generation Z in understanding the age of automation and virtual reality.
The decades before the new millennium arrived were the times when Microsoft (1975) and Apple (1976) were still in their childhood. Moreover, it was the period when internet giants, like Amazon (1994) and Google (1998), were born. Who would have thought that in the early years of the 21st century, other gigantic online platforms like Baidu (2000), Facebook (2004), and Twitter (2006) will rise? No one has seen that coming.
Some of JP’s Facebook Page followers describe millennials as cool, passionate, impulsive, and risk-takers. One blog article defines millennial writers as inventive, tech- and internet-savvy, flexible, social, and inclusive.
Millennial writers seem impressively awesome and supra-intellectual geeks. No need to worry, though. They are still humans, not gods or goddesses. They don’t come from the other dimension of our universe. Some critics are even calling them broke, serious, and over sensitive. Well, they can be both a headache and an asset in a company or society at large. Be their friend, and everything will be fine.
As a freelance content writer and Cebuano blogger in the Philippines, JP is determined to maximize online platforms to influence and empower other millennial writers. This is done while helping small to medium-size businesses. The site will challenge Filipino freelance writers, copywriters, and bloggers to rise above their current situation. He encourages individuals to compete only for themselves and not with others.
More than writing, JP loves drinking a cup of coffee and eating donuts while reading a book or magazine.
