I got sucked into the world of blogging over five years ago, and immediately I was hooked. I love writing blog posts for you. I love tinkering around with my own blog, and I really, really love reading blogs. I especially like reading military spouse blogs because I love learning how others make it through this crazy life. For today’s Friday 5, I’m sharing 5 Milspouse Bloggers You NEED to Be Following.
She is Fierce
Kim is a Canadian military spouse blogger, but from reading her blog for over a year now, I also want her to be my best milspouse friend. She just has a way with words. Her blog makes me laugh sometimes, cry often, and think always. I also love that her blog is all about the words. No ads, no selling. She writes because clearly that’s what she was put on Earth to do. Check her out at www.sheisfierce.net.
High Heels and Combat Boots
Keating, at High Heels and Combat Boots, is a new-to-me blogger than I’ve slowly grown to love over the past few months. Her openness and honesty is absolutely refreshing. As the years go by, it is easy to become stuck in your ways and a little jaded about military life. Keating is a young military spouse who reminds me what it’s like to be young, for everything to be fresh and new and amazing and terrible all at the same time.

Jo, My Gosh
I started following Jo for one reason. She is hands down the very best halfway box designer ever, and she shares tips and how-to’s on every aspect of the process from how to wrap the inside of a box to the perfect puns for care package themes. But click over to her blog at www.jomygosh.com, and you’ll see why I’m still a fan a year later. Jo is a great blogger. Her writing is solid. Her blog is beautiful, and she manages to keep the perfect balance of how to’s and photo stories and lovely advice every single week.
It Must Be Tuesday
This blog is nothing short of beautiful. This Navy spouse lives in Belgium. She and her beautiful family have traveled all over the place during their time there, and everywhere they go she brings her camera and a very good eye and shares it all with us on her blog. Her writing is clever and on point, but her photos are absolutely perfect. Pleeeease click over to It Must Be Tuesday and check her out.
This blog is a little different than the others. It isn’t written by one blogger; it’s actually a collaboration of a team of writers, and the focus of the entire blog is near to my heart: helping military spouses make the most of their lives, their potential, and their dreams. It also just feels kinda hip and cool, and everytime I’m over the I feel like I just want to be a part of that cool kids club. Check it out at www.nextgenmilspouse.com.
Clearly I’m a big fan of military spouses, and if they are also great writers and amazing photographers I love them more. But what I really love is the experiences that these ladies share with all of us. It’s always good to learn something new and see a new perspective, and I feel so lucky that these milspouses take the time to share just that.
