Could someone please explain how I get my travel map to show up on my blog? Thanks!

There are two possible ways:
1) Have it show up in the header of your blog. For this, go to the Settings page in your blog management area, scroll down to the "Show travel map on every page" setting, and select either a single trip, or all trips, to show.
2) Insert a specific view on the travel map in individual blog posts. This will allow you to zoom in to the location a specific blog post talks about. (Note: Only one map will show per blog post to keep performance reasonable; further maps inserted into the same post will show as links to a separate map page.) To do this, when writing a blog entry, click on the little "globe" icon above the big textarea. This will open a new window where you can select a trip, and then either directly insert a map showing that entire trip, or (by clicking "Select Map View") customizing the view until it shows exactly what you want it to show, and then insert it.

There is a third way.

On the Optional Details at the foot of the Blog post, there is an item labeled 'Describes Travel From' where travel dates may be entered. There is a note to the right of the dates 'Connects the blog entry with your travel map'

So - if the first stop on one of your maps has a date of arrival as say 1 jan 2016 & the dates entered in 'Describes Travel From' are 1 Jan 2016 to 1 feb 2016, an entry appears at the top of the blog with those dates, followed by -
View 'name of map' on 'name of bloggers' travel map - as a link to the map.

That may also work with a departure date instead of arrival date or subsequent stops on the map - play with it til it does what you want or ask on the forum.

Thank you both of you! That was so helpful. I appreciate it.
