#reverb10 Day 7 - Community

Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010?  What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? - Cali Harris

This is an easy question for me this year.  My biggest discovery of community has been here, online, in the milspouse blogiverse.  It's been wonderful keeping up with you all, being inspired by your postings, sharing in your successes, aching when I read of your struggles, and learning from your wisdom and experience.  Cheesy, but it's true.  I'm looking forward to growing in this community, and hopefully attending the MilBlogCon one day!  I would really love to attend this year, in DC, but I don't know if that's going to even be feasible financially.

As for communities I'd like to more deeply connect with in 2011, I'd have to say the military charity community.  With me being busy holding down as many extra jobs/duties as possible, as well as not having a lot of money, it's been difficult to give of my time and energy.  I want to be more involved with the PGR in this area.  It saddens me that I won't be able to participate in Snowball Express or Wreaths Across America this year.  That's been a very heart-warming part of my Christmas in the last couple of years.  Even giving of my time is difficult when I need to conserve gasoline in my car.  I'm looking forward to financial stability in 2011 so that I can continue to serve the military community.
