Google+ to Wordpress Publishing

Okay, this by far is on my list of must-have Wordpress plugins. +Daniel Treadwell is a genius in my opinion for creating a way to automatically pull in public Google+ post and publish them on your Wordpress blog. Every single class, seminar, talk, or conference I have spoken at since finding this plugin I have raved about it! It is well worth the $10 for the paid version (he does have a free version if you want to try it out first). 

I have my Google+Blog plugin configured to only pull #blog  hashtags from my personal account (this one) into my LynetteRadio.com blog, but I do use it for other blogs and for numerous clients. Daniel has included so many configuration options, and API integration so you can't pull in Google+ content that you don't own. There is no way other than +HootSuite to push outside content into Google+, and even then it's only from HootSuite TO a Google+ page.

Enjoy and leave a comment if you use it & your blog link!

I'm still trying to sort out the best place for things...twitter, fb, google+, blogs. I think I've come to the conclusion that google+ is more of a mini blog type of place. Google+ is missing 1 key feature and that is the ability to publish your post under a certain topic, so that the circle that you are publishing to, can choose to follow based upon the published topic. Outside of that, I don't really see the need for blogs anymore.... Am I missing something?
 
+joe conery the NUMBER ONE reason to still have a blog - you own the platform and distribution channel of your own content. For businesses this is non-negotiable in my opinion, but a casual/recreational blogger may not care if Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or whatnot disappears and takes all their content with it.
 
+Lynette Young - I'm not sure I agree with that. For businesses, I suppose you're right..However for most people  they use a hosted blog service. If wordpress disappeared, you'd lose all your content.... I suppose you need confidence in your host. Going by your logic, we mind as well get rid of cloud computing for business. Google is barking up the wrong tree with hosted services eg Docs, Drive and apps for business... Or Amazon's web services cloud platform. 
 
Thanks for the plug +Lynette Young, really happy you are liking the plugin.

I have another project that you may be interested in coming up in the next month or so that will allow cross publishing to other networks (using G+ as the publishing platform).  So stay tuned for that as it will likely help those that aren't using WordPress.
 
I can't wait to dive into Google+ . I can not rave enough about your presentation and advice at Bloggy Boot Camp. You really did "rock the mic" woman!
