Brum Blogs

A very simple map showing hyper-local blogs in Birmingham.   This isn’t for any blog in Birmingham, these are blogs about neighbourhoods and specific places.  If you live in B26 but blog about general stuff about life etc this ain’t the map for you.  If you fancy a map like that please bash one up and we’ll link to it.   If you run a blog promoting a venue etc – then the same applies.

It’s for Birmingham only – although we’ve hung onto the odd entry outside brum.

So it’s blogs about neighbourhoods – what happens in them. If you routinely write about a place please fill in the form below to add it to the map (please check the list to see if it’s already submitted).

Credit to pindec and Christian for letting me sneak around in their source code. If you know anything about Yahoo Pipes, then please help me optimise the source code.

Add your blog to the map

Please only submit your blog once, it can take up to an hour before it will show on the map.

    The URL for http://www.bhx-birmingham-airport.co.uk/blog/ (#39) is broken. Can this be changed.
