(You can buy these map notebooks from inkwhimsy on Etsy!)
Ever wondered if there were any bloggers near to you, but weren’t sure how to find out?
Find yourself in a new city with time on your hands, and wanted to arrange a meetup?
Just plain nosy? (Thats me)
You may like to have a look then at my little project, UK Blogger Map. I’ve been thinking about how useful this would be for a while but it wasn’t until I saw Rose a la Mode’s US version that I realised it wasn’t as difficult to make as I was imagining. A few
weeks months faffing, I eventually created the map.
Its pretty simple to use, but here’s an explanation. Fill in the form with as much or as little information as you like. As a minimum, I’d suggest your name, blog address and nearest city.
If you live in a tiny village, feel free to put your location as the nearest town or city that you can get to. Likewise, if you like in a huge city, narrowing down the area would be useful.
It’s manually updated at the moment, but if anyone can give me some advice on making it more automated, that would be much appreciated!
If you have any suggestions or comments to make about the map, please leave them in a comment or use the contact form. The more bloggers who fill out the form, the more useful it will be, so please do pass the link on!

Ooh aren’t you a clever duck?!
The Girl says
Erm….I don’t know how to add myself!
The form is broken at the moment, but if you leave a comment, I can add people that way :)
I fixed it now :D
Nic's Notebook says
Very good! Going to add myself now x
This is a great idea! Can you add me to Liverpool?
Clever Hayles! You know my details, please add me (I promise I will be blogging soon, am planning on catching up on posts while I’m recovering from the beast removal!)
This is such a wicked idea Hayley! I won’t add my details til I’m finally settled down, but such a brilliant concept! Love!
Such a good idea! I am either Worcester or Cheltenham! :)
Oh put me down! I’m in Swindon.
Awesome idea! You can put me down :) I’m in Leeds.
You just need to fill in the form on the page :) That way I wont miss any info off, and have a backup of everything if the map disappeared!
Strawberry Blonde says
Brilliant idea – thanks for doing this!
How do we click on the other bloggers?
You probably will need to zoom in quite a bit to see all the pins, especially around cities, but just click a pin and all the info should pop up!
This is just the best idea and so obvious – why didn’t I think of it?! Good job you did :)
