Filed under General, a little about life
For a long while I wanted to have a ‘Where I’ve Been’ like map on this site. Not to gloat but more the track my ‘progress’. For a while I was going to make a Wordpress plugin to do all this happiness. Then a great day came when Google announced one can now embed its maps on your own site. So, I made one and now we have Dustin’s Travel Map. Take a look, and tell me what you think.
How did I do it, you ask? First I logged into my Google account and went to My Maps on Google Maps. From there I added a new map and started putting in locations. (I am sure I missed a bunch, especially on the East Coast.) Once you have the map click ‘Link to this page’ and copy the embed iFrame directly to your site. From here, every time the map is updated, the map on your site will be updated. Vualah.
I have noticed on some versions of Firefox the pins are not showing up. Sorry.
