Visit MapQuest at WordCamp Chicago

This weekend, WordCamp comes to the Windy City. Learn more about WordPress, plugins, blogging and search optimization at WordCamp Chicago, July 30 & 31.

If you’re planning to attend, stop by the MapQuest table at the entrance of the event. We’ll let you take our Map Builder WordPress Plugin for a spin and create an interactive map for your blog. Not familiar with Map Builder? It is an easy tool for mapping your favorite local hotspots, local news stories, upcoming events, or your team’s weekend soccer tournament. You can embed the map to your site and share with your friends. Not a WordPress user? We also have a Map Builder stand alone tool for all other blogs or websites. We launched Map Builder at SXSW this year, since then maps have turned up all over the place:

Below is a Map Builder map we’ve created, which includes the weekend’s locations, DePaul Student Center (main venue), the after party location, the nearest L stop, the nearest Starbucks, and more.
