Introducing the Frugal Map

Frugal Map 300 Introducing the Frugal Map

I’m pleased to announce my latest project,  The Frugal Map. This has been several months in the process!

So what is The Frugal Map?

The Frugal Map was created* to help readers find their perfect blog match. Whether the perfect blog match is by category, store, location, there is a blog out there for your particular style.

At launch, there is 35 bloggers on the map. I would love to get the map filled out as much as possible with bloggers all over the country! If you aren’t included on the map, please read submission guidelines along with the form here.

The Frugal Map has some unique features:

  • Frugal Map Function: Allows users to find a blogger near their location in an interactive map format.
  • Search Function: Allows users to search multiple blogs across the Frugal Map Network.
  • Hottest Deal RSS Feed: Gives users the most recent hot deals from the bloggers in the Frugal Map Network.
  • Specific Store Landing Pages: Allows users a one stop resource for for store deals including blogger store deal links, resources, and FAQ for the particular store.
  • Specific Blogger Landing Pages: Allows users to read more about their favorite blogs and connect with them via Twitter, Facebook, RSS, and specific store deal links.
  • Embeddable iFrame: Embed The Frugal Map on your blog as a resource for your readers.

I feel these features will make it beneficial to both readers and bloggers. There is no link back to The Frugal Map or a blog button required. It is highly appreciated to link to The Frugal Map, embed it on your own site, or grab a button but not required.

Head over to The Frugal Map for special “Grand Opening” giveaways!

    You are BRILLIANT. Thank you. And perfect timing for me, as 2 weeks ago, I moved from Texas (where I knew ALL my coupon gals), to the Pacific Northwest, where now I don’t know who covers the stores near me! :) So THANK YOU!

  • Heidi - January 18, 2010 @ 3:41 pm 14

    My husband and I were just talking about how a feature like this would be great – and here it is! Nice work!

  • Tanya - January 18, 2010 @ 6:21 pm 15

    What a great idea and a perfect way to find other frugal bloggers in our areas :)

  • Elsbeth - January 18, 2010 @ 8:29 pm 16

    What a GREAT idea! I live in the “Land of No Doubles” but read all blogs from out of state. I probably still will….y’all are great, but a blog targeted to a person’s own area is all the more useful! :)

    Thanks!

  • Kelly - January 18, 2010 @ 11:38 pm 17

    This is amazing, and really has a nice look to it! Well done!! I hope some Oregon bloggers add their sites to your map, so far I only know of one blog in this state.

  • Renee - January 19, 2010 @ 7:41 am 18

    My state isn’t included on the Frugal Map but I can alert my friends who live elsewhere!

  • Sharon - January 19, 2010 @ 8:52 am 19

    I get this blankish page with “Mobile Theme On/Off” in the middle of the page. Do I need to change some settings?

  • Sharon - January 19, 2010 @ 8:54 am 20

    Figured out I needed to click in the upper left hand corner on Frugal Map…love it…thanks! This will be very useful!

  • Kris - January 20, 2010 @ 7:57 pm 21

    What a marvelous idea! I have been looking for something like this for so long so I could find blogs relevant to my area of the country! Thanks for all your hard work!

  • Tiffany - July 19, 2010 @ 12:03 pm 22
