#FixThePlus

Fantastic post, Jeremy. It's a thinker for sure, particularly for me since I'm obviously a blogger too - albeit a "WordPress" blogger, not a Google Plus blogger.

This brings me to the next part of this comment.

I LOVE (ADORE) Google Plus and all the benefits it offers in the social media experience - even the ones I've yet to fully discover and exploit (shame, shame, shame on me, I know). I'm on just about all the major SM sites (that's social media, NOT "sado-masochism") - Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, and Pinterest, to name a few. A lot of us are. But, when I decided to start running a blog, I realized I had a serious decision to make - serious because I had (and still have) serious, long term ambitions. And I was very concerned about whether Blogger or WordPress would be the best direction to go to achieve all my goals. Initially, I created accounts on both, tinkered around (kinda like the equivalent of traipsing through a car dealership to kick some tires without any immediate intention to buy), and then let them sit for a bit while I researched the pros and cons of each in relation to my needs/expectations.

I already knew of course that Google is a beast (like Microsoft, McDonald's, and Monsanto). They've got their nimble little fingers ("little"? They're freaking massive!) stretched far and wide across the globe. So on that basis alone, it seemed sensible to run with blogger. I mean, it's already integrated into their platform with great support for analytics and other tools. But then I thought to myself, do I really wanna place THAT much faith and control into the hands of such a monster, as amazing as it may be? I felt it would be like putting all my eggs into one basket. Just like when you order your cable, internet, and phone service from one company. Great when it all works well. But if there's a major disruption on that company's end, or if they implement some fundamental change in their operation whose effects consequently rolls across all their products (as you've so deftly noted here, Jeremy), I'm screwed.

Didn't like that possibility. Didn't like that at all.

So then I looked at WordPress. They basically provide all the features, services, and benefits of blogger, but in their own distinctive style of course along with some other really appealing advantages I thought. In fact, several articles, books, blogs, etc advised running with WordPress for notable reasons like its extensive integration into the business platform of many companies, public figures, and so forth across the world. They're a lot of major corporations, professional bloggers, successful artists, and famous celebs who rely on WordPress to "sell their ware." Also, WordPress is not as beholden (If, it seems, at all) to the "whims" of top-floor, parent company execs who at any time might decide to switch gears and blow the plans and happiness of us little people clean out of the water in the process.

Another thing that's still really frustrating for me (but this might be equally my fault for not figuring it out) is that it's much harder to "follow" a Blogger blog than it is a WordPress blog. There are tons of Blogger blogs (including yours, Jeremy) that I'd LOVE to receive immediate email or other direct notifications about new content. But Blogger (Google+) simply has not made this easy at all. So I have to physically hunt down new posts for each Blogger I'm interested in - AND THAT'S A LOT OF HUNTING. I just don't have the time and energy to keep up like that. So a lot of posts and Google bloggers fall along the wayside.

Anyway, I eventually opted to go with WordPress because for me it provides much more opportunity short and long term regarding it's versatility, convenience of use, variety of expert tools and features, and so on. Plus (no pun intended), its variety of themes and range of customization options are simply more extensive and attractive to me. I don't mean to knock Blogger or folks who use it. A lot of its users have great content regardless. But frankly, I've never experienced any of the problems or complaints as a WordPress user that I've repeatedly observed with Blogger users.

Maybe this is another reason more folks should consider other options beyond Google's Blogger to help them sidestep their issues. For my needs/interests, I'll stick with Google+ hands down over Facebook. But in my experience and observation, Google isn't king in every area. However, in the interest of trying to improve the sustainability and quality of life for all Google Plus users (including myself), I'll gladly start adding this suggested hash tag to my future posts.

Thanks, Jeremy! I wish you and all Blogger bloggers continued success! 😀

+Alma Ducky I just read about it yesterday. I was surprised, I am a big fan, not that big, but the music is moving.

How would you like to write a post for the Life Explained Music blog? You have the passion.

Introduction
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.

My Blogging
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.

Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
  1. Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
  2. Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
  3. Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
  4. Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
  5. Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
  6. Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
  7. Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
  8. Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)

Bragging rights
