+Blogger: With the wrong-headed closure of +Google+, we're going to lose our followers from here on your platform, and all the cross-shares and comments from G+ as well. Can you move those G+ followers into the regular Followers widget so we don't lose the audience it took years to garner on our blogs? And also keep the comments that were given via G+?

With the probable closure of G+ in August 2019, I'm wondering if this AL social media community will be migrating to another social network, or if this is the end of attempting to be social online. I know the post-+Raven Radio/AL board/+Chuck Hudson suggestion to be on here partially influenced my setting up a G+ profile, and I rather did enjoy the overall platform, but now the horn's final sound for this network approaches. Noticed the closed AL frontpage recommends FB's 'HEATHENRY' & 'Asatru & Heathenry' groups or finding some on MeWe, but am curious if any of you have explored different avenues than FB, like Minds or others maybe that have this nucleus of old school members.

Hey +Google+: Why are we hearing about your shutdown via +Amanda Blain and NOT DIRECTLY FROM YOU?!? I'd committed to your social network because you are Google, an internet fixture that's not going anywhere, and so I placed my bet on you, and now, after investing time, content, effort, and heart on here, you're submarining your own platform, when you don't actually have to. That's just disappointing and an injustice to your users.

Ben Smith's rather couched announcement article states: "Over the coming months, we will provide consumers with additional information, including ways they can download and migrate their data." I will hold you to that if I have to look for a new cyberhome, though right now I feel like just retreating from social networking altogether and re-posting all my relevant content into my +Blogger. Especially my #NorsePlay collection, of which there isn't anything else out there with that focus.

If this is honestly about some strange security leak that you've already fixed, then that's over & done with. You shouldn't burn the whole house down because there was a crack in the wall. And see, people want to stay:

NorsePlay donates books to a nearby +Little Free Library. Because we're supercool with our Deeds like that, and we hope that the Norse Lore with whichever creative pollination it may be in, will find its wondrously truthful way to others.

Cloth map of Midgard exclusive to the God of War Stone Mason Edition with annotations deciphering the runic script. In game, dwarven mastercrafters Sindri & Brokk create this very map for Faye.

+Gaïa Weiss kitted out as Shieldmaiden Þorunn from Vikings Season 3's an obvious NorsePlay choice, and we're taking a moment to admire the detail in her costume.

A Norse-inspired world map from Brock "Zzilla" Brown's Life On Water project, which shows a more aqueous fishbowl version of things.

Hey cartography hounds: Ran into this map coordinate format, 58:53.0241N 3:19.3229W, which says it's WGS84, but it doesn't match that system. Do any of you know which format it is and then an online converter that will actually change it into WGS84 Decimal Degrees? So GPS'd-off at this. +Google Maps, do you know? Is there a built-in converter that I'm not seeing?

Odin crafts the dome of night from Ymir's skull! We like the barely visible line drawing of the Allfather's thoughts of the skull as building material being executed into the overlaying reality of the scene.

Is there an English translation of the Skíðaríma somewhere out there?
