Since it seems your blog covers just about everything mapping related, I thought that Gwigo (Go Where I GO) might interest you. It's a mapping-social network site that allows you to create cool maps of things that interest you and allow non-gwigo users to vote on the locations you map. If you are Gwigo friends with another person, you can view their points, give them a ranking, comment on them etc.

Anyhow it seemed up your alley. Check it out at http://www.gwigo.com
