A Question

So there I was, perusing my blog roll, when my laptop started to beep at me. WTH?, I thought, don't tell me this thing is going to go kaput on me, now.

My laptop is a couple of years old now, so I'm basically expecting it to die any day.

Turns out, I have some sort of IM!

Holy crap!

Can you tell I'm not the most technoliciallyisticified type person?

Anyways, through the course of my newfound IM-ing(?), there arose the question of female Marine bloggers. I know of a few out there, but haven't really run up to all that many. Any of my faithful reader(s) care to chime in and help me out, here? Links to bloggers of the fairer persuasion from those other, lesser (I yoke, I yoke) services are welcome, but especially Marines.

I felt kind of bad cutting the conversation short, but I have to take care of some stuff. Hopefully, these links will help with some information gathering-type stuff for a potential Marine.

For her (and me), thanks.

I don't know any female Marine bloggers, but Risawn is an Army DI, and that's nothing to sneeze at.

There's Diamond Mair:

You could also ask on the Marines Forum (she posts there too):

Hope this helps.

The day to day, semi-normal life of a female Marine. . She doesn't post that often, but fits your criteria.

I was going to post the same link as sevesteen. She's pretty interesting and I second the recommendation.

You already have "Bad Dogs and Such" on your blogroll- even though she's Army now, she was in the Marines first...

Much obliged.

Abby was one of those that I originally thought of and suggested. Of course, I'll always reserve the right to give her a hard time for turning to the dark (green) side. :o)

I can talk up the generalized info, infantry, & Corps with the best of 'em, but there's the rare item or two that the ladies out there might better be equipped to address.

Anybody else with recommendations or blogs are appreciated.

Now, I've got some reading up to do...

Never fear, although she may have joined forces with the dark side, Abby's Marine Roots still shine through.

Har. A good example of the alternative-alternative Marine Corps motto: Because sometimes you just gotta work harder, not smarter.

I could write a book on that one...
