101 Brilliant Bloggers Talk About Google+

Today, I have a special edition for Brilliant Bloggers for you all – on the subject that absolutely everybody that seems to writing about: Google+. Since this new social media platform is brand new, I didn’t single out anyone’s posts like I usually do, but instead groups them into topic areas. If you wrote a post about Google+ as well that I missed, believe me, it was definitely unintentional/ Please feel free to comment with a link to your post!

And yes, for the record, it took me 20+ hours to compile this list of resources. I lost count after realizing that I hadn’t showered or eaten all day Sunday as I was finishing. Thank you everyone who made my job a little easier by sending in links! If it’s your first visit here, you might want to follow me on Twitter @allison_boyer – I do link round-ups at least once a week and ask for submissions by topic on Twitter, so it’s a good way to make sure I don’t miss your post. And also so you can remind me to shower when you notice I’ve been on Twitter too many consecutive hours.

Google+ versus Facebook and Twitter

Again, if I missed your post, please leave a comment below with a link – the more bloggers who share, the better this resource list will be! And for the record, yes, I’ve since showered, much to the relief of my roommate and cat.

  2. Thanks for mentioning my video Alli. Great job putting this all together! Awesome list for sure.

  3. Thanks for adding my site link. I must say it’s an awesome compilation with a whole lot of sources. I’d appreciate if you could add this post: http://webtrickz.com/why-the-built-in-photo-editor-on-google-rocks/ to Photos on Google+ section above.

    • Thanks, Mayur! For Brilliant Blogger posts like this one, I don’t go back to add more links (otherwise that’s all I’d have time to do all day), but I’m glad you shared your other Google+ post here so those interested can check it out! :)

      • That’s true. Actually, you asked to leave a comment with link and I thought you’d be adding it to your list. These are a lot of sources, no need for any addition. :)
