You Are Here

Vickie at "Another Sewing Scientist" had this awesome idea of creating a social map of where we, the social media using sewists, live. (Or #sewcialists, as evolved from twitter). I'm just gonna copy and paste her directions. I have found the "pin" works just fine in Google Chrome as well.

Here's how to participate:

Open this link to get to Map the Sewintists
Click on the red Edit button on the left
Click on the blue pin on the upper left of the map
Click on your location to drop the pin
A box will open that will allow you to add your name or blog URL in rich text
Save et voilà!

**********update from users: it appears that you cannot pin if you are using a mobile device / tablet; also, you may need to use Firefox since other browsers may not work; finally, you must be signed into your google account. (or leave your name/general location on Vickie's blog and she'll add you)

I would strongly advise people to only pin their general location or closest city, since we don`t want creepers peeping in our windows while we sew in our unders, do we?

Lets dot the world!

  1. Thank you my dear - the word is really spreading! We're up past 4000 hits already in two days, and I've discovered loads of new bloggers to start following when I'm supposed to be working or taking care of my offspring. ahem.
