Treasure is a hunting, number two

The In Search of Adam map has been up for two weeks.
There are now nearly 200 pins.

Have you been to look recently?
Zoom in.
Click the colour on the pin.
And discover the blogs.
The blogs of the people who took time to join my search.

The map connects nearly 200 people.
It plots how word-of-mouth spreads over blogspace.
And how people connect and join.

I am beyond thrilled.
I remain excited.
I love blogging.
So many new blogs to discover.

This week.
Lovely Stray has been most clever again-again.
She has added more clues to the map.
(she tells me that they are not as hard as the clues from the last hunt)
And those clues
(not anagrams)
lead to treasure of sorts.

Here is the first clue:
Green, Black or White, this blog leaves its mark

This clue is a link to a blog that is on one of the pins on the map.

(I am not allowed to tell you the countries that they can be found in)
(Because Stray is very strict and has told me not too)
(I love you sooooo Stray)

When you solve the clue.
You will find the pin that it comes from.

Zoooom right in on the tip of the pin. Keep zoooooooming. In in in in in in.
There is a *tiny weeny* red star hidden there.
Find the star.
(you have to zoooom a lot)

Found it?
Then you have solved a clue!

Click on the red star.
It will give you the next clue, which will lead you to another pin on the map.
When you have found the 3rd pin, you will get a secret codeword.

Email me at with the secret codeword and the name, place and blog that you put on your pin on the map.
(So details of your personal pin as well as the secret codeword)

You will get a GOLD STAR on your pin on the map! And those who earned a star last time will end up with 2 stars!
(I know! I know! )
This time gold stars for all who solve the three clues.

Here is the first clue again:
Green, Black or White, this blog leaves its mark

(Stray says you are all clever enough to play and this time I am not to give ANY clues)
(Stray is very very very strict)
(I love you soooooo Stray)
Stray edit: I love you too Cas, and it's worth remembering that most of the blogs on the map are in the blogroll ;)

If you haven’t yet added a pin to the In Search of Adam map.
Please do.
It is a way of connecting us all. It is connecting us all.

And blogging is about finding things and people and experiences.
The In Search of Adam map is collecting people who want to be found.
