To use Google+ for liveblogging would make sense if readers receive instant push notifications. Wonder if that happens if you edit an existing post?
 
+Robert Schultz thanks Robert! I just wondered if updates (editing the same content and not adding new) on existing posts will trigger notifications. - Anyway I posted the link to your liveblogging page here on G+ on my blog as well.
