YA Book Bloggers Map

So for a while now, I've been thinking of making a map of YA book bloggers. I think it would be really useful for authors and publishers wishing to contact bloggers in a particular area--assuming those bloggers want to be contacted. :)

  • Locate your area by your closest medium-large to large city--not the place where you actually live. I don't live in Glendale anymore but that's where I started blogging, and I can generally attend events around 60 miles from there.
  • Register or Log In to zeemaps.com and place a marker on your City.  You don't have to log in--just go to http://www.zeemaps.com/yabkbloggers and click on Additions-Add Marker Simple
  • When labeling your marker, please use the same styles as I did:
Name: The name of your blog i.e., Read Now Sleep Later

Description: A short blurb about your blog

Email: optional, so you can be contacted

Blogger/s: name and last initial or nickname

Website: your blog's URL

City: Major to medium city, not the place where you live

Address and Zip: Leave blank, will not display

Media: Image/Audio/Youtube video ID: optional--I used a 200x200 pixel gif.
You can choose your marker's color :) If your blog has contributors from different areas, you can set up as many markers as you need.

An administrator must approve each entry.

  1. I did it but I dont know how to link to your map.

  2. What a cool idea! But I have a question. I live in the largest city in my province. Do I still have to pick a different city? Seems like a stupid question but I like to clear things up first. Thanks!
