Blogger Map Project update

Thank you all for your response to the Blogger Map Project! So far I have over 80 forms in, and about 2/3 of you added to the map! I hope to catch up with everyone up to this point, tonight. Thank you for being patient!
I'm really excited about the potential of this map and it's exciting to see it keep filling up and see bloggers from all over the world. (I know there are a lot more of you out there! It only takes a minute: Add yourself to the Blogger Map) I've already found dozens of great new blogs and you will too!

A couple of follow-up notes...

  • I know I asked you to tweet, blog OR post the button on your blog, but would you guys consider putting the Blogger Map button on your blog either way? This way you can show your participation on the map on an ongoing basis (so your readers can find you, and others!)The more people on the map = the more bloggers to connect to! Because this is all really new, I'm not going to require the sidebar button for membership, but I'm hoping some more of you will be willing to share. (Instructions are at the bottom of this post)

  • Regarding Tweets: If you tweeted about the Blogger Map, but you didn't paste the tweet link in the form, mention #BloggerMapProject, follow me, OR tweet @ me, then I can't see your tweet and give you credit for it!
    If you didn't meet any of the above requirements but already submitted the form, no need resubmit. Just Follow Me and Tweet This - and I'll make a note get you added ASAP! Thanks.

  • Lastly, I completely understand everyone's need for privacy and security. I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable with posting their location. However, I don't think it's fair to add your blog to the map if you only sent me your state or country (or no location at all). The point of this map is to find local bloggers so please make sure you are comfortable listing both a city and a state/country before filling out the form. Thanks!

To add this button to your site, simply copy and paste this html into your blog editor. (for Blogger users, add an HTML/JavaScript Gadget and paste the code in)

225 px
<a href="" target="_blank"><img border="0" height="153" src="" width="225" /></a></div>

150 px x 102 px
<a href="" target="_blank"><img border="0" height="102" src="" width="150" /></a></div>
