A Big Old Bloggy Family

One day in June, I was sitting in front of my computer screen searching the internet for something, anything really, written by a military wife.

It was the month before my husband Zach was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan and I was feeling so tired of no one understanding what I was going through. Pretty much every single person, whether family member or friend, that I talked to were clueless about the military, let alone about a deployment and I found myself explaining and comforting them more than anything else. At that very second, I felt that if I was asked one more time if I'd miss him or if I was scared for him or why he was even deploying because 'the war was over', I would explode. At that moment in time, I just needed to know that there was somebody else out there who was struggling with all the things I was. 
So I did what every other person in my situation would do--I turned to Google. I don't remember what search terms I entered into that little white box (and for the life of me every search term I've come up with has not yielded the same results) but when I hit enter, I struck gold. That day I landed on the blog Wifessionals and that was the start of the adventure I call blogging. 

You see, when I stumbled upon Kaitlyn's blog, I also stumbled upon an entire community of people I had no idea existed--the blogging community. The next couple of days after my big discovery I spent hours clicking around from blog to blog to blog. Kaitlyn's blog led me to Mal's blog which led me to Samantha's which led me to Lisa's which led me to Bonnie's which led to Hayley's which led me to Jessica's (the list could go on for miles). 

As the days went on and I started my own blog, I was amazed at how diverse a bunch we were and how quickly my fellow bloggers started to feel like family to me. I can very happily say that I've already made some great friends and I hope to make a ton more. Because that's what blogging is about really--connecting with other people, sharing our adventures, taking a little break from the grind of daily life to put ourselves out there. 

We all have a story and what an amazing way we have chosen to tell ours!


Long Live Us Bloggers!!
