The Easiest Way to Update Your Current Location on Your Travel Blog

If you’re like me, you have a “currently in” module on your travel blog. Maybe your location is listed on your about page or maybe it’s listed on your sidebar or footer (or both). If you’re like me, you also probably still update that current location manually  via html or widget text every time you change locations. If you’re like me, you forget — resulting in the current location often being out-of-date/wrong on your site.

Now, there’s an easier way for those of you with WordPress blogs. The Oh Hey World WordPress Plugin.

One click (or email or text) and you’re all set — without touching a line of code or messing with your widget settings.

Below are two examples of the plugin in use…

I’m looking for 10 beta testers for our new WordPress plugin to make sure we catch all the bugs and make the product as valuable and easy to use as possible. If you want access to the plugin ahead of public release (& are willing to provide a bit of feedback), shoot me an email at drew at ohheyworld or leave a comment.
