Today Pegman travels to Xinhua, China. China’s relationship with Pegman’s parents is tenuous at best, so photospheres are hard to come by and street views almost non-existant. That said, you can still find some lovely city- and landscapes hidden in the map’s blue dots. Your mission is to write 150 words about something that inspires you, then post your link for others to read and comment on.
Have fun and do your best!
Today Pegman goes to one of the original 13 colonies, the oft-overlooked state of Delaware on the east coast of the United States. Though small, plenty of things have happened there and continue to happen, as a quick trip through Wikipedia will show you.
Your mission is to walk around and find something that inspires you to write up to 150 words, post it on your blog, and link to the InLinkz page. Remember that reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun.
Do your best, and enjoy yourself!
Just a side note: you may have noticed the absence of my incredibly talented partner-in-crime Karen Rawson. She’s heads-down writing her novel, but promises to be back when she gets a chance.
Today Pegman flies to Free State, South Africa, a place with a long and troubled history. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write 150 words inspired by a photo from Google Earth’s Street View. When you’re satisfied, please share your work with others in the prompt. Reading and commenting is part of the fun. Do your best and have a good time!
Today Pegman travels to the city of Minsk in Belarus, a place of rich history and cultural significance. Though Pegman has yet to create a comprehensive Google map, there are plenty of photospheres with which to inspire yourself to write up to 150 words. When you’re satisfied, please post your work to this week’s InLinkz, and don’t forget to read and comment on others’ work as well!
Have fun, and do your best.

I hope your canteens are full and you brought plenty of sunscreen, because this week Pegman has taken us to the desert southwest, in Cloverdale, New Mexico, USA.

Pegman is super excited to try out Google Earth’s random tab feature for Chrome as a source of inspiration. Google Earth is a technological miracle that not only allows us (or perhaps compels us) to never be lost, but it also offers us a way to see our world in new, exciting ways that can have a profound psychological and spiritual impact on our thinking, our work, and how we relate to people we meet every day.
Today, Pegman and Google Earth selected this lovely place.
As always, the task at hand is to find a photo that inspires you and write up to 150 words about it. When you’re satisfied, post a link to the blue frog below and share it with others. Remember, commenting on the contributions is part of the fun!
Enjoy yourself, do your best, and maybe even learn something new! Cheers!
Today Pegman travels to a famous capital city of South America, Asución. Now that more than 98% of the inhabited planet had been mapped by Google, there are new places for Pegman to go every week. Feel free to stroll around and write up to 150 words about anything that strikes your fancy, then publish your story and share it with the group. Remember that commenting on other stories is part of the fun!

Today Pegman visits the corner of Tulsa’s Greenwood Avenue and Archer Street.
The Greenwood district was a thriving African-American community with luxury shops, restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, jewelry and clothing stores, movie theaters, barbershops and salons, a library, pool halls, nightclubs and offices for doctors, lawyers and dentists. It had its own school system, post office, a savings and loan bank, hospital, and bus and taxi service.
Greenwood was home to far less-affluent African Americans as well. A significant number still worked in menial jobs, such as janitors, dishwashers, porters, and domestics. The money they earned outside of Greenwood was spent within the district. It is said within Greenwood every dollar would change hands 19 times before it left the community.
This is an unusual prompt today because it’s focused on a specific time and place, and as such is sort of an experiment. We at Pegman encourage you to look into this mostly-forgotten tragedy and write something about it, but as always you can write anything about Tulsa that strikes your fancy.
Joining the linkup and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun. Do your best and enjoy yourself!
