Looking for Other Google+'ers in My Area!

I'm in the process of putting together a "Local Circle" with people who live around me. If you or anyone you know lives in or around the Lee County Florida area (Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs, Naples, Sarasota, etc.) feel free to let me know in the comments section and I'll add you/them to the list. Thanks!

I thought about doing that, but then I started reading what the people in my area are posting, and it was depressing. So I changed my mind.

Clearwater too far away?
 
Tampa!! (did I make the circle)??? 
 
Been there, back when I was, but a whippersnapper (12, 13, 14yrs old) Played Golf @ Ft Myers Country Club once.
 
As far north as Sarasota and as far south as Naples... anything east of me would be too far to consider local. 
 
Green Bay Wisconsin isn`t to far?:):):) It is:)

+Michelle Marie  :(

Then, it's time for me to create a circle of Tampa bay +ers!

Do you mind if I use your idea?

Vancouver WA,  way too far:(
 
i had no idea you lived in Florida (maybe cause i never asked or checked). i live just outside of Tampa in Brandon...a couple of hours up the road

i know +Shantha Marie Fountain lives down that way and also +Anna Nguyen those are the first two that come to mind
 
I'm in the Miami area... which is sort of close by...
 
Been a long time since I was in Florida. Used to go vacation at Marco Island each summer years ago, so kinda cool to see you in the same area. The conch fritters there are still the best I've ever eaten.

Just reminded me of some good memories, so thought I'd share.

Maybe we should do a Florida circle first, and then divide by region?
 
I live in Jacksonville, so not really close to Ft Myers. +Mark Rodriguez I didn't know you lived in Tampa! I actually grew up in Haines City.
 
So we Tampa folks are too good for you? :-P
 
Good for stalkers.
 
+Stephanie Van Pelt damn i did not hear about a Tampa HIRL for the G+ year anniversary...i already made a commitment to the Orlando one or that would have been cool :(

let me know if any future ones come up though
 
+Mark Rodriguez Circle the page for future ones! I'm not organizing as I'm about 90 miles south of Tampa - I'm just attending.
 
Look at these Tampa folks here showing up...you guys must not post Public!
+Michelle Marie I spent the better part of the last 3 days between Naples where I was working and Marco Island where I was staying. I would've HIRL'ed one night. :-)

And yes, +Tampa HIRL, June 30th, O'Brien's in Tampa off Dale Mabry. Open invite, come one come all. I need to round out my Florida Circle too, so speak up if you want in.
 
+Stacy Leets I have a friend moving out to that area literally this weekend, +Marlene Brensinger. I'll also be out there at the end of July and would love to meet up. When is the Orlando HIRL?
 
+Eric Aultman i only post public...except for sometimes i post privately but i can't talk about that stuff ;)
 
+Mark Rodriguez I may have misspoke; maybe with location. I go through Nearby pretty religiously here.

+Alexandre Dammous I've been making a pretty large FL circle. The Tampa community is very active with posting and yet just in this thread I've found 5 more that I've never come across via Nearby.
I'm going to work on this circle and then break it down to another one under 100 for the Tampa Bay and surrounding area. I'll share it out before the weekend is done.
 
THIS IS WHY YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO USE NEARBY PEOPLE!!! ;-D
Look at all these cool peeps in the Bay area I'd never seen.

thanks +Eric Aultman ! I have only seen really poor and uninteresting stuff in my "nearby" section. With the exception of a couple of really neat people, it's usually "I'm @ dairy queen eating a delishus burger".
Seriously, who eats burgers at Dairy Queen?
 
+Stacy Leets you should make it out then for the Orlando HIRL on the 30th. i believe it is gonna start around Lake Eola for a photowalk and later there will be downtown with a drink and click
 
There are actually some fantastic G+ people here in the area. I'll put together a "highly recommended" Local circle for people to dip their toes in. There is a fair share of the generic here as well. :-D
 
+Shantha Marie Fountain dammit girl i was hoping you could have made it out for that :(

girlie, we are gonna hafta hang one day...i still can believe that we haven't already.

maybe we can have some offline convos and figure out a beach to meet halfway between us and let the kiddos play together this summer
 
I know, right!?!? I was just up that way twice last week, but they were so short of visits.

I wanted to hit the O-Town walk, but family stuff and travel decided to happen at that time.

We do have to make this magic happen, fo sho!

Beaches or parks would be so badass! 
 
I live in Ft. Lauderdale. Not sure if that counts.
 
+Michelle Marie   Jacksonville FL...  That may be too far for your circle but if not...thats where I be..  :-)
 
No Google+ers in that area. They have all sold their computers for Meth.
 
I own some dirt down there. Does that count?
 
I have a place in Jupiter, FL, but I don't get there enough.
 
+Stephanie Van Pelt You're right, I don't typically check-in public, only to limited circles that half-care about that sort of post.  I'll make an exception when it's some place where someone is playing movies / games on their iPad without headphones, then it's a public 'Dear jackass' post.  ;-)
 
So any of the Florida people here have any objection to being Shared in a Circle?
 
+Eric Aultman i have no objection, unless maybe it's a Fans of Justin Bieber circle, then the answer is no
 
+Eric Aultman No objection here either, my Tampa circle was made via 'nearby' lists and is pretty small.
 
I was in Ft Meyers a few yrs back and decided it was one of my all time favorite towns! Im not there these days but have a few people in south Fla that I will direct to your post. Love / Peace great town, Fort Myers...
 
I wish I still lived there,  I did get to enjoy hurricane Charlie and a few others during my stint in Ft Myers, sorry that I won't be circle-worthy for ya...:(   I miss those Sunday night Banana daiquiris on the beach, have one for me, MM!
 
+Michelle Marie when you're done with your Local circle, which I'm too far away to be included in ;) , will you share it with me as well so I can make sure they're all added to the Florida circle?
 
I boarded the wrong plane once and ended up in Ft Meyers when I was supposed to end up in Ft Lauderdale. I still don't know how that happened!
 
+Anna Nguyen cool, you and Shan's name just come to mind when i think of south-west florida G+ folks
 
In Gainesville, so not close to SW FL. Will be down in the Bay area for the Rays game on the 2nd. Will there be a post-HIRL HIRL on the 1st?
 
While I'm thinking about it, who's organizing the Orlando HIRL? I just listed the Tampa one on +Google Shared Calendar Events. Reach out to +Charles Hogge. What are the odds that Tampa and Orlando would BOTH have one on the same damn day??
+Bill Abrams You should just come down one extra day early.   
 
That cracks me up +Mark Rodriguez. I chose that date simply because it worked out with the custody schedule of my daughter. :-) 
 
you were supposed to share that with me at one point too +Gilmar Smith  impatiently taps foot on the ground
 
Bwahahahahahaha +Mark Rodriguez I'm going to the lake tomorrow to take a pretty pic to make the official post. ;)
 
I thought you was in Orlando, I'm way over in West Palm.
 
I'm in Winter Garden, probably not close enough...
 
Came here for my family vacation, this is a great get away . Sorry i'm not in the area :(
 
I'm not in your area though I'm willing to link up what's the plan? 
 
I'm here in lee county...legging to be exact. I hope I am not the only one to respond to you. Would be very interested in a hangout to get to know you ....google+ is still very new and has great potential ...still learning what to do to capitalize its possibilities ...looking forward to hearing from you
 
Hope their is a big park for the BBQ near you, 
 
As a matter of fact...several large parks.lol I love auto correct I see they corrected Leigh acres to legs.lol
 
I would like to be added to a local circle.
