+Dubie Bacino shares several wonderful circles of interesting, inspiring, and engaging people. I'm honored to be included.
 
Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino  (18th Edition)

This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is inspiring content that will enhance your Google+ experience. 
-----------------------------------------

When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  

- ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and

- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.

To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).

-----------------------------------------

To connect with me, the best place is my appearoo page: http://appearoo.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ 

-----------------------------------------

If you are on #TSU, connect with me: https://www.tsu.co/opajdara. If not, check it out, it's the new social network that pays you revenue for your online activity!

We made our first 2015 visit to Norfolk Botanical Garden about a week ago. We didn’t expect too much to be in bloom yet, but have friends visiting soon who will also want to visit the gardens, so we thought we would do a bit of research in anticipation.…
