Something new here... Please give your suggestions..

Hi everyone, did you notice the new page on my blog? Entitled "My Travel Maps', it is just a trial - an attempt - at making my travel entries easier to find. At present, I have started off with just some of my temple blogs, and have embedded the links into the locations on the map. Google Maps being interactive, it allows you to pan over the entire map and look for locations you are interested in. When you click on the locations I have marked with a pin, it will direct you to my blog entries about that location.

Please try it out and let me know what you think. Please do try it out and leave your suggestions so that I can make the appropriate changes. If it isnt convenient, please let me know that too!

As I mentioned earlier, this is just a trial... If it is convenient, I plan to do the same thing for not just the temples, but also all the other places I have written about.

Eagerly looking forward to your reactions....

  5. Way to go Anu.Good job..!
    It should really be useful and looks good.In fact Geo-tags are intended for such applications. I experimented with it for my photos and videos long time back and with good effect. Hope , will find time to do it in my blog too sometime.
