Discovering a wonderful community of travel bloggers was a surprise and has been an unexpected blessing in this journey. Before I started writing about my home area, I had no idea that others were already following a similar path. Now if I am planning a trip or wanting to know more information about an area, I look for travel blogs. So for this Follow Friday Midwest Travel Bloggers are featured!
Although I may not ever get to meet all of them in person, I still consider them to be social friends. The ones that I consult whenever I have technical questions or when I want to add places to my bucket list. They are also the ones I consult when planning on visiting a new area.
Nebraska Midwest Travel bloggers: Many great people in my state write about much more than just travel. Yet since I do not want this post to go on forever, I will only mention the ones that talk about places to go.
Kim from Oh My! Omaha was one of the first bloggers to encourage my new blog. I have continued to
bug e-mail her with questions about what is happening Omaha. She has been a great resource and writes a fantastic blog.
As if one great Omaha blogger is not enough, there is also Family Fun in Omaha. Julie and her family also suggest so many great activities, plus it is kind of fun seeing two different points of view of the same town.
Although they do live in Nebraska, The Walking Tourists do not stop at our state. In fact, they go far beyond our state. In fact, where they are next is always a fun surprise. Great people!
The Postcard Jar is another blog where the couple is based in Southeast Nebraska, but they (and their followers) travel far beyond. Several of their posts do reflect visits close to home.

Featuring primarily Ohio, Tonya and her family, the The Traveling Praters have managed what our family would love to do someday. Traveling about in an RV. Her kids are a bit older than mine, so I keep mentally filing away articles about traveling with a teenager. She is such a great resource and has also been an encouragement to me.
Two Moms, A Little Time and a Keyboard (Chicago area) When I went to Chicago this fall, I was really sad that I did not have enough time to get to check out any of their great suggestions.
