Running 5 blogs and traveling the past 3 years, I know the pain of continually updating the current location on a blog’s about page and sidebar. My location on my various about pages and and sidebars (or headers/footers) were often wrong. I got tired of editing text widgets and footer/header/sidebar PHP code.

Hence the reason we built the Oh Hey World WordPress plugin. We now have the easiest way to update your location on your WordPress.org blog. Here are a few example of travel bloggers using the WordPress plugin…
