I just added myself on the map! Actually it was fun to do it 🙂
Awesome – Glad you added you on the map – see you here on the blog and SIPB
If I can figure it out anyone can…now I just hope I did it right!?!
Thank you Trina – I will ask Pamela, our Moderator to check and let you know.
Hello – I’m waving from Australia! I think I’m now on the map after following the clear step by step instructions. The only issue I had is that when it says ‘To view WHO is WHO on the map, simply click on any RED ICON to get the person’s name and city. Click the X in the Name Box when done’ , most of the icons are blue, Did I miss something?. I realise that the admin bloggers are red… Anyway I’m chuffed that I managed to do it and so far I’m the only one in Australia!! Thanks for the instructions, now off to read other information before jumping in.
Aweso e so glad to see you on the map. Now invite some fellow Australiqn bloggers to co e and join the group. Yes the members are blue amd admin red.
Done! I’m on the map. 🙂
Awesome Eugenia will say Hi and wave ar you tonight
Done! It’s exciting to see where everyone is at. One thing that might make it easier for people following the directions is to have the map open in a new tab. That way they can read the directions and follow the process at the same time. 🙂
Shannan, The person trying to pin them on the map, should just open two windows at the same time and place them side by side on the screen to read and follow the instructions at the same time.
When pinning yourself in North America, try to use the one that has the red pins already on it…that’s the one where the Admin and Moderators have pinned themselves.
Because this is a flat map, you will see continuous maps, and so you can pin yourself on different North Americas or different Europes. It doesn’t really matter, as we can find you by scrolling, but let’s try to stay on one North America if possible. I hope that makes sense…in other words, when you first open the map, scroll around to the North America with the RED PINS on it and pin yourself there!!!!
Thank you Pamela – Yes, its better to all be in the Same North America, although the Mods can repin if needed
I am amazed that I did it! I don’t see anyone else except Clive.
Welcome to our SIPB Map world Darlene
Whoo hoo! I’m on the map!

Great and awesome – thanks for being part of this group and all your support Ellen.
Sounds complicated but I’ll give it a go. No doubt I’ll end up showing I live in the middle of an ocean!
Clive – no its not that complicated, just follow the prompts. If I can do you and even do the post then you can do it. Hope to see you on the map soon.
Clive, I can see you on the map 👋👋👋
