Hiker at crossroads

Step 1:


Find a Country in the search box and press Enter

When you start to type in the Search box, countries will be offered. Find the right country, press Enter or Return and away you go.

Or you can scroll down the long list if you like.

But there's more than just countries.

We've included places better known on their own. You can search for Hong Kong, instead of going to China and drilling down from there.

And since the next Step is search on a map, what if the place is administered by a colonial power half way around the world? There's a Department of France, Réunion, in the middle of the Indian Ocean. You can search for "Réunion".

We use the same "Country List" as Google Maps.

Step 2:


Click a Country, Region or City pin to view results

Now you'll see a map of the country. Three types of pins mark locations where Bloggerstan has listings at three different geographic levels. Any time you click on a pin, you'll go to the Search results page for that location and level.

In the upper left you'll see zoom buttons. Zoom in and you may see pennants for states, provinces or regions. Zoom in more and you'll see location pins for cities, towns and even smaller places.

  • - Click the Country pin if you're looking for content on the entire country, as in "Japan Itinerary for First Time Visitors".
  • - Click on a State-Province-Region pin if you want to learn about a sub-national area, such as "The Ultimate Nevada Road Trip (15 Stops)".
  • - Click on a City-Town pin to zero in on information for that location. Example: "Climbing Mount Kenya (Everything You Need to Know)".
  • - If there are too many City pins to show at your current zoom level, you'll see a cluster pin with the number of pins under it. Click on it to zoom in and see the individual pins.
  • - India is a big place... where, exactly, is the small but exotic city of Jaisalmer? If you don't know where a location is on the map, use the Search box. Type in the name correctly and press Enter or Return and you'll see the location in a red circle in the middle of the map. Zoom in to look around. The place may or may not have a pin, depending on whether Bloggerstan has content there.

You can scroll around the map, moving the borders north, south, east and west, to see nearby areas.

Click on any pin to see results for that place. You can always come back to the same map from the search results page.

Step 3:


(Optional) Drill down to topics that matter

Now, you're on the Search Results page for your location. If there are just a few listings, it's easy to scan through them to look for helpful content. They're sorted from newest to oldest.

If there are plenty of listings, you can drill down to the best stuff with the Topic filters.

While there are plenty of filters in Bloggerstan, the only ones that appear on any search page are where content exists for that filter at that location. If "Historical sites" appears in the list, there's historical sites content somewhere in the listings. But if "Sporting events" does not appear, then none of the listings covers sporting events.

Every time you select a filter, you'll see the results right away. If you un-select a filter, the results will revert to what showed before.

CAUTION: just like on hotel booking sites, filters are "A" AND "B". So the more filters you choose, the more likely you will get zero results.

At the top, there's a link to go back to the same map you searched from.

At the bottom, there's a button to return to the top.

Step 4:


Browse the listings and GO to original content

Results are sorted from Newest to Oldest publication date.

Besides the picture, title and creator's name, Listings have more information to help you choose what content to consume:

  • = Local creator. The creator lives in the Country, Region or City of Focus and should offer unique insights about the location.
  • = Content Type. Shows whether the content piece is blog, vlog or podcast, so you can choose what type of content you want.
  • Publication date helps you to assess whether information such as prices, transportation schedules, health and safety are fresh. Keep in mind that some older content might be very, very good!
  • Topics = the main subjects covered in the content. You can filter for Topics in the left sidebar.
  • Details = sub-topics or other specific hints about the content.
  • More = click to open a box where the creator provides a bit of persuasive prose about the content.
  • Report = where you can flag content (after checking out the original content on the creator’s site or channel). If you believe the content is directly selling you something at the location, or the content could lead a traveler into illegal or dangerous situations… please let us know.
  • GO! = click to open another browser tab with the original blog, vlog or podcast ready for you.
