While the term "warblog" may have been used at one time (I've only heard the term on Wiki), it is not a popularly used term inside the United States. (I cannot attest to usage elsewhere.) This article should be retitled "Milblogs" and I'll work to improve this article, with citations on motivations of the authors of such, definitions of such, and examples of their work.

Weakly sourced generalisations[edit]

I've pulled a few weakly sourced generalisations from the article:

New entries range from those currently serving in Afghanistan[1] to spouses dealing with military life and sharing secrets on surviving it as a couple and family.[2]

Older entries include mothers who lost their sons in war,[3] wives of the wounded,[4] veterans reporting world news and war news,[5] and citizens of other Nations that support the Honor of troops of many nations [6]

Readership of milblogs varies from family members to millions a year.

Feel free to put them back in with better sourcing. ARK (talk) 12:18, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
