*Moving Mondays is a post about issues military families face as they get stationed around the world. Tune in each Monday for tips and stories from military families and other experts aimed at helping your next move or deployment go more smoothly.
Today, I want to remind you that My Traveling Troop accepts contributors. Specifically, if your military family is about to move, in the process of moving or just completed one, My Traveling Troop would love to hear your questions, stories and tips. If your family is dealing with a deployment, we'd love to hear from you too.
Perhaps you are moving to Europe for the first time and didn’t realize until you got there that you were lactose intolerant. Wouldn’t you love to share how you survived those first few weeks?
Maybe you just moved to Japan and had a funny story about the plane ride, chopsticks and a sumo wrestler?
Perhaps you just got stationed somewhere in the U.S. and had to fly across the country. By yourself. With five screaming kids.
Or, your loved one is deployed and you’d like to share what steps you took to help you and your kids cope.
If you’re willing to share the story about your move or deployment and the lessons you learned along the way, you have two options:
1- You can write a post about your experience. Before you write up the post, though, email a brief pitch to email@example.com for consideration.
2- Not a writer? No problem! Send a brief email my way about what you’d like to share with My Traveling Troop’s readers, and I’ll consider interviewing you for a Moving Mondays post.
If you don’t have a story to share, but you do have questions about moving and deployments, email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll try to help you tackle them.
Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you!
