Hello WordPress Jedi!

Thanks for the write-up of my plugin. I'm glad you've taken the time to tell your readers about how simple it can be to share their location.

I should add that although the widget is easy to get started with, it's also really customisable, so it needn't look 'exactly' like it does in the screenshot.

Yours,

Tom
