Google Cool: My Maps

Google Maps now has this cool feature called My Maps. You can create your own maps of anything you want. Cali Lewis has a map of her favorite BBQ Joints. I wish I was in Dallas instead of Houston so I could go to a GeekBrief.TV meet up sometime.

Inspired by that map I thought I would start my own map to document my travels over the past 5+ years. I am excited to see what I can do with this new map. I named it I’ve Benn Everywhere. No that is not a typo. That is part of my last name. So I thought it would be cool.

What is so cool about My Maps? Well, for one thing you can build one all for yourself for anything. Each place on the Map gets a push pin. You can edit each location and add many bits of information to it. You can ad links to places. So if you were doing a restaurant review map you could link to the website as well as your review of the restaurant on your own blog.

I am going to be linking to my blog posts about specific places and airports and whatnot. The project will take quite a while because of the 5 years of travel but in the end it should be very cool. You can always access the map through My Bio on

  1. This is really cool, all the times I’ve heard about google maps I thought it was for driving directions, but I was wrong, just don’t tell anyone as I am rarely wrong.
