For the past six years, the folks over at Military.com have been supporting the growing military blogging community with the annual awarding of Milbloggies. Each year, the Milbloggies recognize military bloggers for their contributions to blogging, news and information and the military.

Last year, our readers voted Coast Guard Compass the 2011 Best U.S. Coast Guard Blog. We were fortunate enough to be nominated again this year alongside four other blogs about your favorite seagoing service.

We are pleased to have two blogs from junior officers passionate about their service. The American Queen is a relatively new blog dedicated to the legacy of Coast Guard Cutter Storis and the history of our cutter fleet from Lt. j.g. Galen Varon. Long-time blogger Lt. Ryan Erickson’s blog, RyanErickson.com, provides a more personal perspective on the Coast Guard, our culture and heritage.

Rounding out the five finalists are official U.S. Coast Guard blogs. Joining Compass are AMVER’s official blog and Coast Guard Alaska, the official blog of the 17th Coast Guard District.

Voting is currently underway for the 2012 Best U.S. Coast Guard Blog over at Milblogging.com.
