I received an email from a new blog startup site called verveearth.com. Basically, the site works by putting blogs on a map so that you can surf geographically.

It definetly is an interesting way to surf the blogging world and see what people are writing in your area. It may also help you to find information from different locations.
Here is what they emailed me –

We are searching the internet for the world’s blogs by geography, and we found yours for Fort Collins. I would like to invite you to our site which plots the content of the internet on an interactive map of the world. VerveEarth is an entirely new way to surf the net.

The VerveEarth team will make a timely reply.
