As I wrote about yesterday, colleagues struggled to track my whereabouts, so I created https://whereis.ethitter.com/ for real-time updates.
I’ve since discovered that my coworkers aren’t the only ones who can’t track my movements–I found myself struggling to remember where I’d been at a certain points as well. Borrowing the idea from Philip Arthur Moore, I created a WordPress plugin that uses a custom post type to record my travel history. The end result is at http://ethitter.com/timeline/.
I haven’t released the plugin yet, but if there’s interest, I’ll clean it up and post it to GitHub.

Cool! I’m interested to see the plugin. I’ve been thinking about creating something similar to track milestones and events.
The plugin is now up at https://github.com/ethitter/Timeline. Enjoy!
It’s pretty simple: it adds a custom post type with meta fields for a trip’s start and end dates. There’s a shortcode,
eth-timeline, to output the entries.
Sweet. Thanks Erick!
