Make it Easy For Me To Read Your Google+ Posts And Comments

Please tell me:

Why are you here at Google+?

You may not like it but you are here to get attention. 

1| You want me to read your post.

2| You want me to read your comments.

If you wrote a post or a comment and you don't want attention why are you writing great stuff here at Google+?

I really, truly, want to read your posts or comments!

Make it easy for me.

Many Plussers have shared ideas but have a look at this post of mine. I am not suggesting it's only way. LOL

Every new idea is shared at a new line.

I like paragraphs but I prefer white space. 

Use a headline to interest me.

Use bold to make it clear what's important.

Share under your friends and try and make it easy for me to give you attention. LOL

    Today We Went Walking In Kalk Bay

    Kalk Bay is a small village 30 minutes from Cape Town. It's got a lovely and very active fishing harbour.

    This is the place where we buy all our fresh fish. But today we went for a breakfast and shopping.

    The dogs were with us and had to do dog things. This was the place where they could do it.

    Far in the distance is my village, Simonstown.

    I hope you are having a fun day. Let me know what you are doing on this Saturday.

    Easy Free Photo Taking Tools For Ordinary People

    1) Your cell phone is the best place to start. I prefer a Galaxy phone. With the Galaxy Note my preferred one.

    2) Google+ for simple and effective editing of photos. 

    3) Google+ instant upload makes Cell Phone photos a pleasure. I also use +Dropbox for instant uploads.

    4) I cannot go without http://pixlr.com/. It's probably the best browser editing tool around. It has various +Adobe Photoshop tools all FREE.

    5) Organising and editing photos online and offline use http://picasa.google.co.za/ 

    6) If you want to go more professional then try the free http://www.gimp.org/ program.

    7) To batch edit photos I use http://www.xnconvert.com/

    8) Mobile sharing sites with great editing tools and filters +Instagram and   +Streamzoo. I really like streamzoo for many reasons. One is the easy share to other social networks.

    9) At another time I will share some of the great mobile apps I use with my Android phones. One is the HDR Camera. I bought the Pro version of HDR Camera+ http://goo.gl/TY05S

    10) My next easy camera will be Galaxy Camera with all the Abndriod goodness of which one is to send photos via WiFi to instant uploads. Cool http://goo.gl/Ig9KZ

    10 Simple Ideas To Increase Your Google+ Influence


    If you are interested in your personal or business brand then these 10 ideas may make your task easier.

    1) Define your intent.

    Your intent is either to give or to take. And when you want but disguise it by apparent giving it will show.

    You will gain nothing by being fence-sitter either. Say clearly what you like and dislike. ( As an example: I have said I am no liar. I want more people to circle me. http://goo.gl/sEYWR)

    2. Reply to everyone who mentions your name.

    Check that you get notified, via Google+ settings, when someone mentions your name.

    See:

    (Do You Want To Try and Engage With Everyone Mentioning Your Name? http://goo.gl/tfWwJ

    (Google+ Tip: Managing Notification http://goo.gl/G4DOz +Rahul Roy)

    3) Toot the horns of people who reach out to you and people who share great work

    Mention them in posts and connect people who may share an interest but are not aware of it. (My friend +Carra Riley is such a connector).

    Get involved with influencers and share their work (riding coattails http://goo.gl/Tvwxc)

    4) Be Supportive. People are asking questions.

    10 Simple Ideas To Increase Your Google+ Influence


    If you are interested in your personal or business brand then these 10 ideas may make your task easier.

    1) Define your intent.

    Your intent is either to give or to take. And when you want but disguise it by apparent giving it will show.

    You will gain nothing by being fence-sitter either. Say clearly what you like and dislike. ( As an example: I have said I am no liar. I want more people to circle me. http://goo.gl/sEYWR)

    2. Reply to everyone who mentions your name.

    Check that you get notified, via Google+ settings, when someone mentions your name.

    3) Toot the horns of people who reach out to you and people who share great work

    Mention them in posts and connect people who may share an interest but are not aware of it. (My friend +Carra Riley is such a connector).

    Get involved with influencers and share their work (riding coattails http://goo.gl/Tvwxc)

    7 Tips On How To Find Your Old Google+ Posts or Comments

    +Joan Laine asked: Can you give me a tip on how to find a specific old post that I am looking for?

    And I thought more people will be interested in learning how to do it with greater success: 

    1) This is how I find my old posts: search in G+ using your name and some of the terms you used in the post or comment you are trying to find.

    2) Use "word1 word2" if you remember two words you used next to each other. If you cannot then just use word1 word2 without the " "

    3) If you remember another plusser who posted or was tagged mentioned in the post or they made a comment to the post add their name to the search. 

    4) Continue searching different words. Longer strings of possible words. 

    5) +Jaana Nyström suggested: Is it your own post? Then choose 'From you' in the dropdown after you have searched once.

    6) +Mark Traphagen in a post http://goo.gl/ZsTpH mentioned that if you remember the day and month of the post then add "23 May" 

    If you cannot remember the day then just add the month. 

    7) When you have searched click on the pause button. If you don't click pause posts will continue to scroll past. 

    BTW: I am not good at adding #tags  but by adding it you may find your posts easier in the future. ;-)

    EDIT: The Plussers added some more advice:

    +Kevin von Duuglas-Ittu  you can also use http://ifttt.com/ and create recipe that archives all your posts to Twitter #hashtag or Evernote, etc.

    Michael Stuart +Michael Stuart I often use +Jari Huomo tool

    7 Tips On How To Find Your Old Google+ Posts or Comments

    +Joan Laine asked: Can you give me a tip on how to find a specific old post that I am looking for?

    And I thought more people will be interested in learning how to do it with greater success: 

    1) This is how I find my old posts: search in G+ using your name and some of the terms you used in the post or comment you are trying to find.

    2) Use "word1 word2" if you remember two words you used next to each other. If you cannot then just use word1 word2 without the " "

    3) If you remember another plusser who posted or was tagged mentioned in the post or they made a comment to the post add their name to the search. 

    4) Continue searching different words. Longer strings of possible words. 

    5) +Jaana Nyström suggested: Is it your own post? Then choose 'From you' in the dropdown after you have searched once.

    6) +Mark Traphagen in a post http://goo.gl/ZsTpH mentioned that if you remember the day and month of the post then add "23 May" 

    If you cannot remember the day then just add the month. 

    7) When you have searched click on the pause button. If you don't click pause posts will continue to scroll past. 

    BTW: I am not good at adding #tags  but by adding it you may find your posts easier in the future. ;-)

    EDIT: The Plussers added some more advice:

    +Kevin von Duuglas-Ittu  you can also use http://ifttt.com/ and create recipe that archives all your posts to Twitter #hashtag or Evernote, etc.

    7 Simple Ideas To Get A Google+ Tango And More Circle Inclusions

    They say it takes two to tango. That makes a lot of sense. Here at Google+ you need more than two to tango.

     *But you have to get off your bum and ask plussers to tango with you.* 

    I just read a nice post by someone who is in only 159 peoples circles. I was the only one how left a comment on his post. He name tagged me. 

    His story should be read by more people. But he needs to do a lot more Plussing work. I don't feel sorry for the guy. If I did I would share a link to his posts. ;-)

    *We all start at ZERO!* 

    But when you are at zero Google+ can be a lonely place.

     That's where you have to get up and ask people for the dance.

    Here are a few ideas that I have picked up over time and from other plussers that will increase the number of people who circle you:

    1) Set yourself a goal. You want to increase the number of people who circle you from zero to a 600 in month one. From 500 to a 1400 in month two. Play around with the numbers. 

    You obviously get more people when you have more people. At 600 you need 20 per day. Now you can start working on it. 

    Plot your success on a graph. And use +CircleCount and their Chrome extension  http://goo.gl/28YRT

    2) When you publish a story on a topic use Google+ search to find other people who posted on the same issue and leave an engaging comment at the post. 

    It's not appropriate to leave a link to your post

    When you have commented a few times on the same post then you may feel more comfortable sharing a link to your post.

    The idea to find these publishers with common interests is that they will come and check out your about page and your last post. And they may like it and circle you.

    3) Write a post your topic and search for other post on the topic. Quote the people and +nametag them. They will like it and may even share your post. 

    But again: Never abuse name tagging people. Tag them when you quote them. 

    4) I have mentioned commenting. But as a general remark i want to add that many plussers have shared how leaving great comments is one of the fasted ways to to get people to circle you. Obviously you have to leave great comments.

    5) Share other people's posts. It's important, again, to use search for your topics and then share relevant posts. When you share that post, please, add your own view on the post and thank the person who wrote the post and the person who share the post - if applicable.

     6) You can also get people to circle you when you write engaging posts that get shared. This is not as easy as it seems.

     But go and watch what highly successful plussers like +Jaana Nyström+Amanda Blain, and +Mike Elgan do.

     See if you can find their formula and duplicate it. Not copy what they do. Just apply their formula. 


    7) Some people will tell you that it's not worth your while to ride the coat tails of influencers. I think they make a mistake.

     Influencers can make your life a lot easier than what you think. But you need to become a valuable resource to them.

     Some time ago I wrote a riff *14 Ways To Learn How To Helpfully Ride The Coattails Of Google+ influencers*. http://goo.gl/uGsGQ

    What other great Plussers have shared on making new friends:

    1)  Go and have a look at +Ellie Kennard's post http://goo.gl/hfSxi Attention New Members or Those Whose Experience Here is Less Than Satisfying So Far

    2)  +Chris Brogan published this post December 2011. Get More People to Circle You on Google+ http://goo.gl/eVfdJ

    3) My Google+ Help Posts For Beginners. +Billy Wilson  wrote a great post with many great ideas here http://goo.gl/ZVRq6

    4) 8 Ways to get circled by +Michael Delgado via +circled.us  http://goo.gl/KAM3d

    5) And if you crave for more information have a look at this post by +Melody Lynn  Google+ 101 a.k.a. The MothaLode o' Google+ Info & Resources for Goobies http://goo.gl/EMvHD

    2) When you publish a story on a topic use Google+ search to find other people who posted on the same issue and leave an engaging comment at the post. 

    It's not appropriate to leave a link to your post

    When you have commented a few times on the same post then you may feel more comfortable sharing a link to your post.

    The idea to find these publishers with common interests is that they will come and check out your about page and your last post. And they may like it and circle you.

    3) Write a post your topic and search for other post on the topic. Quote the people and +nametag them. They will like it and may even share your post. 

    But again: Never abuse name tagging people. Tag them when you quote them. 

    4) I have mentioned commenting. But as a general remark i want to add that many plussers have shared how leaving great comments is one of the fasted ways to to get people to circle you. Obviously you have to leave great comments.

    5) Share other people's posts. It's important, again, to use search for your topics and then share relevant posts. When you share that post, please, add your own view on the post and thank the person who wrote the post and the person who share the post - if applicable.

     6) You can also get people to circle you when you write engaging posts that get shared. This is not as easy as it seems.

     But go and watch what highly successful plussers like +Jaana Nyström+Amanda Blain, and +Mike Elgan do.

     See if you can find their formula and duplicate it. Not copy what they do. Just apply their formula. 


    7) Some people will tell you that it's not worth your while to ride the coat tails of influencers. I think they make a mistake.

     Influencers can make your life a lot easier than what you think. But you need to become a valuable resource to them.

    7 Simple Ideas To Get A Google+ Tango And More Circle Inclusions

    They say it takes two to tango. That makes a lot of sense. Here at Google+ you need more than two to tango.

     *But you have to get off your bum and ask plussers to tango with you.* 

    I just read a nice post by someone who is in only 159 peoples circles. I was the only one how left a comment on his post. He name tagged me. 

    His story should be read by more people. But he needs to do a lot more Plussing work. I don't feel sorry for the guy. If I did I would share a link to his posts. ;-)

    *We all start at ZERO!* 

    But when you are at zero Google+ can be a lonely place.

     That's where you have to get up and ask people for the dance.

    Here are a few ideas that I have picked up over time and from other plussers that will increase the number of people who circle you:

    1) Set yourself a goal. You want to increase the number of people who circle you from zero to a 600 in month one. From 500 to a 1400 in month two. Play around with the numbers. 

    You obviously get more people when you have more people. At 600 you need 20 per day. Now you can start working on it. 

    Plot your success on a graph. And use +CircleCount and their Chrome extension  http://goo.gl/28YRT

    14 Ways To Learn How To Helpfully Ride The Coattails Of Google+ influencers.

    This is a riff on the excellent article by +Tom Treanor. (Please show him support and follow him).

    Let me define Ride the Coattails my Google+ way:

    It's metaphor that refers to the way in which Google+ Newbies can gain influence through their ties to Google+ Influencers. It does not mean that the newbie will get a free ride. No.

    The newbie will have to earn the ride. And this article explains how to honestly and helpfully get a ride.

    See point (12) for the explanation of the riff concept.

    Here are the 14 Ways:

    1. Start Cultivating

    Pick a small set of Google+ influencers that interest you (say 4-6 people) to start with.

    Place them all in one circle. Sincerely comment on their posts or +1 it. It does not help you +1 an odd post by +Melody Lynn and you are clueless about the topic. Mean it!

    I have someone who drops 20 +1's within 30 minutes on me. I am no influencer but this is useless. Check this article by the great Google+ Plusser +Jaana Nyström on commenting. Check the comments for ideas on what works. http://goo.gl/s1n8V

    2. Show Your Support

    If believe your followers will benefit then also share your influencers posts. But never just share without you adding your own salt and spice to the story. As a rule I never share just link. SpammyShare is vain.

    Influencers are good social networkers. They will take note of the share. Many will acknowledge it. And may even like and comment if you have added you own clever salt and spice angle.

    3. Become Their Informal (or formal) “Community Manager”

    As a rule newbies follow influencers; these newbies need help and asks a question at the influencer's post. Get in there and give them advice. The influencer and other will take notice and see you as valuable resource.

    4. Connect Them To A Great Resource or Person

    You may notice that an influencer has an issue. You know of another influencer who may help. These two influencers may not know of each other. Introduce them via +name.

    If someone asks a question anywhere on Google+ and you know an influencer who can help then +Name (tag) the influencer at the post and ask them to come and help. This is a great opportunity for the influencer to brand his skills.

    Or the influencer may ask for help and you have an answer. Or you know of another Google Plusser who can help then connect the two.

    5. Cover Their Keynote

    Join hangouts that your influencers present. Summarise your positive view and publish your post tagging the influencer.

    If you have negative things to say. Say it to yourself. And forget about it.

    Or see 10. Again you are doing it because you have learned something genuine; Positive stuff will help your followers and brand the influencer.

    6. Offer Free Consulting To improve Their Business

    Are you a banner or scrap book maker? And you have made a nice one for yourself. Offer to make them one. Use +Google Plus Profile Picture + Banner Maker. It's free and does a great job.

    Also go and see what my friend +Bearman Cartoons is doing offering caricatures.

    You don't have to be an artists. You may have Crome skills like +Valentin Dobroia or presentations skills. You can even create a screen cast video of their images; don't publish it to youtube. it's not yours. No. Just give it to them. If they want it let them publish it.

    7. Review Their Book, Product or Event

    Let's look at an example; +Guy Kawasaki wrote an excellent book everyone on Google+ should read (What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us http://goo.gl/TZlAk no aff). Read it and tell people what you have have gained from it.

    I am not saying Guy will give you a ride. But focus on making other people look great - when they are!

    8. Interview Them

    Arrange a one one hangout or ask them to be the expert host or do a private HO and ask them questions relevant to their expertise. Preferably send them the questions before. And it's assumed that you already have some relationship going.

    10. Give Them Honest Feedback

    The other day one of my Influencers was frustrated with Google. I was able to change the perspective of the influencer by giving straightforward advice. My influencer accepted my view, felt better and moved on.

    Influencers are not intouchables they are people like you and me.

    11. Create A Valuable Resource For Your Community

    +Rahul Roy, the man who connects many people and curates great Google+ articles, was asked by +Peter G McDermott if he would run +G+ Library. That's compliment to Rahul.

    Rahul agreed; I know that Rahul is capable of a lot but why not offer your services and assit Rahul. (This is just an example).

    12. Riff Off One Of Their Ideas (not rip off)

    This article is a intended to be a riff of +Tom Treanor's article (http://goo.gl/N3Q1K). You basically take something and you add your own art to it (I am not suggesting my riff is art).

    His story angle is on general social media and mine focuses on Google+.

    If you find something on Google+ that you like and have another angle on then ask the person if you can riff it. I asked +Tom Treanor.

    13. Become A Customer

    This is straight forward. If you have a need for their services then use it. If they sell a book on Google+ and it's great then buy it and share it. (See .7)

    14. Offer To Write A Guest Post

    On Google+ this is not applicable. (I think). But you can offer to write one on their blog.

    Does this not remind you of the bank balance story?

    By following these ideas you are depositing value into the bank balance of your influencer. One day the influencer will acknowledge your positive balance. Influencer will pay you back more than what you can ever expect.

    Can You Go Too Far?

    +Tom Treanor says yes. +Guy Kawasaki adds that it's an art. All I can say is; if you are not honest you'll be exposed as a fraud.

    Tom share 5 tips that can help you to not go too far. Please read Tom's article at CoppyBlooger here http://goo.gl/N3Q1K. It is his first Article on CopyBlogger. (Well done Tom!)

    Have Fun.

    14 Ways To Learn How To Helpfully Ride The Coattails Of Google+ influencers.

    This is a riff on the excellent article by +Tom Treanor. (Please show him support and follow him).

    Let me define Ride the Coattails my Google+ way:

    It's metaphor that refers to the way in which Google+ Newbies can gain influence through their ties to Google+ Influencers. It does not mean that the newbie will get a free ride. No.

    The newbie will have to earn the ride. And this article explains how to honestly and helpfully get a ride.

    See point (12) for the explanation of the riff concept.

    Here are the 14 Ways:

    1. Start Cultivating

    Pick a small set of Google+ influencers that interest you (say 4-6 people) to start with.

    Place them all in one circle. Sincerely comment on their posts or +1 it. It does not help you +1 an odd post by +Melody Lynn and you are clueless about the topic. Mean it!

    I have someone who drops 20 +1's within 30 minutes on me. I am no influencer but this is useless. Check this article by the great Google+ Plusser +Jaana Nyström on commenting. Check the comments for ideas on what works. http://goo.gl/s1n8V

    2. Show Your Support

    If believe your followers will benefit then also share your influencers posts. But never just share without you adding your own salt and spice to the story. As a rule I never share just link. SpammyShare is vain.

    Influencers are good social networkers. They will take note of the share. Many will acknowledge it. And may even like and comment if you have added you own clever salt and spice angle.

    3. Become Their Informal (or formal) “Community Manager”

    As a rule newbies follow influencers; these newbies need help and asks a question at the influencer's post. Get in there and give them advice. The influencer and other will take notice and see you as valuable resource.

    4. Connect Them To A Great Resource or Person

    You may notice that an influencer has an issue. You know of another influencer who may help. These two influencers may not know of each other. Introduce them via +name.

    If someone asks a question anywhere on Google+ and you know an influencer who can help then +Name (tag) the influencer at the post and ask them to come and help. This is a great opportunity for the influencer to brand his skills.

    Or the influencer may ask for help and you have an answer. Or you know of another Google Plusser who can help then connect the two.

    5. Cover Their Keynote

    Join hangouts that your influencers present. Summarise your positive view and publish your post tagging the influencer.

    If you have negative things to say. Say it to yourself. And forget about it.

    Or see 10. Again you are doing it because you have learned something genuine; Positive stuff will help your followers and brand the influencer.

    6. Offer Free Consulting To improve Their Business

    Are you a banner or scrap book maker? And you have made a nice one for yourself. Offer to make them one. Use +Google Plus Profile Picture + Banner Maker. It's free and does a great job.

    Also go and see what my friend +Bearman Cartoons is doing offering caricatures.

    You don't have to be an artists. You may have Crome skills like +Valentin Dobroia or presentations skills. You can even create a screen cast video of their images; don't publish it to youtube. it's not yours. No. Just give it to them. If they want it let them publish it.

    7. Review Their Book, Product or Event

    Let's look at an example; +Guy Kawasaki wrote an excellent book everyone on Google+ should read (What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us http://goo.gl/TZlAk no aff). Read it and tell people what you have have gained from it.

    I am not saying Guy will give you a ride. But focus on making other people look great - when they are!

    8. Interview Them

    Arrange a one one hangout or ask them to be the expert host or do a private HO and ask them questions relevant to their expertise. Preferably send them the questions before. And it's assumed that you already have some relationship going.

    10. Give Them Honest Feedback

    If believe your followers will benefit then also share your influencers posts. But never just share without you adding your own salt and spice to the story. As a rule I never share just link. SpammyShare is vain.

    Influencers are good social networkers. They will take note of the share. Many will acknowledge it. And may even like and comment if you have added you own clever salt and spice angle.

    3. Become Their Informal (or formal) “Community Manager”

    As a rule newbies follow influencers; these newbies need help and asks a question at the influencer's post. Get in there and give them advice. The influencer and other will take notice and see you as valuable resource.

    4. Connect Them To A Great Resource or Person

    You may notice that an influencer has an issue. You know of another influencer who may help. These two influencers may not know of each other. Introduce them via +name.

    If someone asks a question anywhere on Google+ and you know an influencer who can help then +Name (tag) the influencer at the post and ask them to come and help. This is a great opportunity for the influencer to brand his skills.

    Or the influencer may ask for help and you have an answer. Or you know of another Google Plusser who can help then connect the two.

    5. Cover Their Keynote

    Join hangouts that your influencers present. Summarise your positive view and publish your post tagging the influencer.

    If you have negative things to say. Say it to yourself. And forget about it.

    Or see 10. Again you are doing it because you have learned something genuine; Positive stuff will help your followers and brand the influencer.

    6. Offer Free Consulting To improve Their Business

    Are you a banner or scrap book maker? And you have made a nice one for yourself. Offer to make them one. Use +Google Plus Profile Picture + Banner Maker. It's free and does a great job.

    Also go and see what my friend +Bearman Cartoons is doing offering caricatures.

    You don't have to be an artists. You may have Crome skills like +Valentin Dobroia or presentations skills. You can even create a screen cast video of their images; don't publish it to youtube. it's not yours. No. Just give it to them. If they want it let them publish it.

    7. Review Their Book, Product or Event

    Let's look at an example; +Guy Kawasaki wrote an excellent book everyone on Google+ should read (What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us http://goo.gl/TZlAk no aff). Read it and tell people what you have have gained from it.

    I am not saying Guy will give you a ride. But focus on making other people look great - when they are!

    8. Interview Them

    Arrange a one one hangout or ask them to be the expert host or do a private HO and ask them questions relevant to their expertise. Preferably send them the questions before. And it's assumed that you already have some relationship going.

    10. Give Them Honest Feedback

    The other day one of my Influencers was frustrated with Google. I was able to change the perspective of the influencer by giving straightforward advice. My influencer accepted my view, felt better and moved on.

    Influencers are not intouchables they are people like you and me.

    11. Create A Valuable Resource For Your Community

    +Rahul Roy, the man who connects many people and curates great Google+ articles, was asked by +Peter G McDermott if he would run +G+ Library. That's compliment to Rahul.

    Rahul agreed; I know that Rahul is capable of a lot but why not offer your services and assit Rahul. (This is just an example).

    12. Riff Off One Of Their Ideas (not rip off)

    This article is a intended to be a riff of +Tom Treanor's article (http://goo.gl/N3Q1K). You basically take something and you add your own art to it (I am not suggesting my riff is art).

    His story angle is on general social media and mine focuses on Google+.

    If you find something on Google+ that you like and have another angle on then ask the person if you can riff it. I asked +Tom Treanor.

    13. Become A Customer

    This is straight forward. If you have a need for their services then use it. If they sell a book on Google+ and it's great then buy it and share it. (See .7)

    14. Offer To Write A Guest Post

    On Google+ this is not applicable. (I think). But you can offer to write one on their blog.

    Does this not remind you of the bank balance story?

    By following these ideas you are depositing value into the bank balance of your influencer. One day the influencer will acknowledge your positive balance. Influencer will pay you back more than what you can ever expect.

    Can You Go Too Far?

    +Tom Treanor says yes. +Guy Kawasaki adds that it's an art. All I can say is; if you are not honest you'll be exposed as a fraud.

    Tom share 5 tips that can help you to not go too far. Please read Tom's article at CoppyBlooger here http://goo.gl/N3Q1K. It is his first Article on CopyBlogger. (Well done Tom!)

    Have Fun.

    P.S. +Melody Lynn shared this oxymoron of a quote by Oscar Wild http://goo.gl/QtDiS and it think it's appropriate:

    14 Ways To Learn How To Helpfully Ride The Coattails Of Google+ influencers.

    This is a riff on the excellent article by +Tom Treanor. (Please show him support and follow him).

    Let me define Ride the Coattails my Google+ way:

    It's metaphor that refers to the way in which Google+ Newbies can gain influence through their ties to Google+ Influencers. It does not mean that the newbie will get a free ride. No.

    The newbie will have to earn the ride. And this article explains how to honestly and helpfully get a ride.

    See point (12) for the explanation of the riff concept.

    Here are the 14 Ways:

    1. Start Cultivating

    Pick a small set of Google+ influencers that interest you (say 4-6 people) to start with.

    Place them all in one circle. Sincerely comment on their posts or +1 it. It does not help you +1 an odd post by +Melody Lynn and you are clueless about the topic. Mean it!

    Oscar Pistorius: let’s put it to rest the controversy and celebrate his achievement

    I am amazed by people talking about the advantages my friend gets from his bionic legs that they are willing to forget the human who walks on these legs, my friend who came into my house on these legs.

    He told us once and it's in his book: the story of walking on the beach as a boy and noticing that his feet left impressions on the sand that weren't the same as other kids'. "My footprints are different," he told his parents. "No," they replied, "they're just better." 

    His mother would call on Oscar and his brother, "Carl, you put on your shoes, and Oscar, you put on your legs, that's the last I want to hear about it"

    He never thought he had a disability he just thought he had different shoes. 

    From The Washington Post http://goo.gl/qcZ06

    "Before another scientific journal, retired sprinter Michael Johnson’s ego or track’s stopwatch police ruin one of the great stories of these Olympic Games, let’s crystallize the emotions of Olympic Stadium on Saturday, about 10:45 a.m., when a man with no legs below his knees began blazing around the track".

    "The crowd of 80,000 roared because they felt happy for Oscar Pistorius, not sorry for him. They rose from their seats in awe, not uncomfortable ambiguity".

    "Would you swap your two legs for Pistorius’s prosthetics to find out?*

    My last question to you:

    Are you more worried about him breaking records because of his advantage or do you enjoy with the world a differently abled person overcoming all odds?

    I get the feeling that you feel sorry for disabled people as long as they don't threaten your ego - your records.

    He told us once and it's in his book: the story of walking on the beach as a boy and noticing that his feet left impressions on the sand that weren't the same as other kids'. "My footprints are different," he told his parents. "No," they replied, "they're just better." 

    His mother would call on Oscar and his brother, "Carl, you put on your shoes, and Oscar, you put on your legs, that's the last I want to hear about it"

    He never thought he had a disability he just thought he had different shoes. 

    From The Washington Post http://goo.gl/qcZ06

    "Before another scientific journal, retired sprinter Michael Johnson’s ego or track’s stopwatch police ruin one of the great stories of these Olympic Games, let’s crystallize the emotions of Olympic Stadium on Saturday, about 10:45 a.m., when a man with no legs below his knees began blazing around the track".

    "The crowd of 80,000 roared because they felt happy for Oscar Pistorius, not sorry for him. They rose from their seats in awe, not uncomfortable ambiguity".

    "Would you swap your two legs for Pistorius’s prosthetics to find out?*

    My last question to you:

    Are you more worried about him breaking records because of his advantage or do you enjoy with the world a differently abled person overcoming all odds?

    I get the feeling that you feel sorry for disabled people as long as they don't threaten your ego - your records.

    I Like It When You Plus One Me

    Why are you not doing it?

    Here I am.

    I just left a message at your post.

    I just made a comment after you did.

    I just published a nice post.

    And you saw it.

    You even read it.

    And you left the door open.

    You left without greeting me.

    Does it take time to plus one me?

    Or are you just a little ignorant?

    I had a friend who took an hour or more to wakeup.

    She would not acknowledge us. It was odd. And I called her my friend.

    Greet me with a plus one. It's free. It's easy.

     Share plus ones. Your friends will love you for it.

    Ignorance is expensive.

    Generosity is free and it pays.

     Check how many plus ones you are dishing out https://www.google.com/dashboard/b/0/

    See 

    I am at 25 000. I know that my friend +Jaana Nyström is at many more.

    I have said it before:

     *Most people like flowers. Sharing a plus one is like giving a free flower to a friend. Give out many flowers friend.*

    Google+ Sharers Circle: These People Like To Share.

    Many people complain that they have many people who placed them in circles but they get very little engagement.

    This is a complicated problem I am not going to try and solve other that giving you a circle who are willing to engage with you.....

    I am making this circle public to show my appreciation to the people who engaged with me and who are sharing my Google+ posts. Some many times, some a few times and others at least once.

    They are not all influencers, many are, some are also new to Google+ but they are willing to share.

    If you want to connect with people who engage via sharing. Here's a great circle.

    I believe if you look after them and they will look after you by sharing your great Google+ posts.

    Have fun

    Johan
    P.S. If you have engaged with me, as mentioned above, and I have not included you please leave a comment and I will add you.
    P.P.S. I have not included myself in this circle. This is really and truly about other people who share my stuff.

    Google+ Sharers Circle: These People Like To Share.

    Many people complain that they have many people who placed them in circles but they get very little engagement.

    This is a complicated problem I am not going to try and solve other that giving you a circle who are willing to engage with you.....

    I am making this circle public to show my appreciation to the people who engaged with me and who are sharing my Google+ posts. Some many times, some a few times and others at least once.

    They are not all influencers, many are, some are also new to Google+ but they are willing to share.
