Have you heard about The Frugal Map yet? If not, let me tell you a little bit about it. It is cool new site created by Bargain Brianna to help readers connect with their “perfect blog match” by store, location or category. Here’s what she writes:
"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 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 have already used this site personally and was very impressed! A friend of my mom's emailed me the other day asking for help in locating more frugal blogs like mine, but in Texas where she lives. I was quickly able to find four different blogs for her by simply clicking on her state.
Now, I did notice that there are no blogs listed for Washington yet. There are several local bloggers who have sent in submission requests though, including myself, so our state should be participating very soon! We can still utilize The Frugal Map by to look up deals for several national chains like Albertsons, Walgreens and Rite Aid though!
I look forward to using this nifty new tool even more in the near future.
