Publishing Blog Posts to Google+ Again

For a while whenever I did a blog post, I was making sure I also posted a notice of the post on Google+. Unlike the methods I had for posting such notices to Twitter and Facebook, for Google+ I had to do this by hand. Eventually I tired of the manual effort this entailed and stopped.

Recently I did some updates to my website, and while I was at it noticed a new way to automatically do the notifications to Google+ again, so I turned that on.

There is one difference from the posts to Facebook and Twitter though. Those exclude the daily summaries of my Twitter posts. If you follow me on Twitter, well, you see my tweets already. And I figured that even the Facebook folks if they really wanted to see that, they could go to Twitter. The method I’m using for posting on Google+ doesn’t exclude anything, so the daily Tweet summaries get posted too. And they generally happen more often than “real” posts by me.

Apologies for anybody “circling” me on Google+ who does not appreciate that. Feel free to let me know your thoughts on that. If enough people don’t like it, I may simply turn the Google+ posts back off. Having said that, I’ve had a few responses to posts via Google+ already, including one of the Tweet summaries, so at least some folks seem to appreciate it.

Anyway, if these posts on Google+ bother you, or if you appreciate them, let me know!

No More Reposts to Google+ for Me

The handful of you who follow me on Google+ may have noticed that for a little over a month, I haven’t been reposting my stuff over there. This is because the method I used to use to do so stopped working, and it was already extra clicks for me, so I didn’t really spend time looking for other, probably more time consuming, ways to do the sharing. I hoped it would start working again, but it has been long enough, it is time to say that I am no longer routinely sharing things I post on abulsme.com to Google+.

Sorry Google+ people.

If you want to continue keeping track of what I post, you can of course follow me directly on abulsme.com, via abulsme.com’s RSS on the RSS reader of your choice (I use Feedly), via Twitter, or via Facebook for all posts other than the daily Tweet summaries.

(I will manually share this one post to Google+ just to wrap things up. Bye Google+!)
