Travel Collections Tips

In the first #CreateConnections event, organized by the Google+ Collections Community, travel expert +Monika Fuchs shared her advice about creating engaging travel content for collections and posts. Here are some of Monika's tips:

Create Travel Collections – Collections attract people who are interested in your travel topic. By regularly publishing to your collection, you will keep people coming back to your page.

Increase Engagement – Ask your followers questions and invite them to participate in polls. This will help you learn about your followers' interests in a direct and easy way. Start off with simple questions to initiate participation.

Build Relationships – Get to know other people who are interested in your travel topics. Visit their profiles, websites, communities, and interact with them on their own publications as well.

Choose the Right Topics – Focus your collections around niches that can be regularly updated with more content. This could be a specific city or location, or could be a travel theme such as regional food, castles or gardens. Select your topic carefully, so that you can post in the collection for a long period of time. This way, you only need to post your most interesting content, such as your most outstanding photographs with descriptions explaining the image.

Personalize your Collections – Add a touch of your personality to your collections. This helps you draw more people to your collections, and also lets your followers know who you are and what inspires you.

Pick an Interesting Title – Spend time selecting the title for your collection. Your title should be descriptive, but also make people curious about what's inside.

Find your Audience – To reach your target audiences, select specific topics for each of your collections and stick to it with each post. This helps users find your content, and gives them the confidence that they are following what they want to see. Consistency is essential.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. with a Doodle by artist Cannaday Chapman in collaboration with the Black Googlers Network.

The Doodle depicts a young girl perched on her father’s shoulders, enthralled by the power and eloquence of Dr. King’s words. The scene is evocative of Dr. King’s dream for children everywhere to one day live in a better world.

Create member +Randy T climbed the Ptarmigan Traverse, taking this stunning image along the way!
Someplace Beautiful

I took this photo around mid-point on the Ptarmigan Traverse, WA. The traverse usually takes 5-7 days and is mostly ice and rock until this lush green oasis. The Peak in the background is Mt. Formidable and the photo was taken at Yang Yang Lakes. This is a beautiful area and I can't wait to get back here and other new destinations. For awesome photos of this area check out the link below. +Randy T

+Heiko Mahr celebrates five years on G+ and the friendships that he has developed while using the platform to explore his interest in photography.

Photography is a past time for me.
Most often I do shot all alone, just me and my camera, like a hermit searching for enlightment.

But my photography wouldn't have developed without the connection to other photographers via social networks, in particular Google Plus in my case.

This year marks my 5th anniversary that I discovered G+, and this event changed my life!

G+ let me find photographers from all over the world and see their images.
G+ was the platform which enabeled Robin Griggs Wood to held her GMAPP Mentorships, which I had the the luck to be a mentee of.
G+ gave me friends, some I met already in real life, some maybe I will,
G+ changed my photography forever!!!

Thank you.
And thank you my friends!!!
Apologize that I can't mention all of you..
You all important to me whenever our lives intersected and with some of you I
m allowed to be connected :)

Thank you Google Plus!

Meet Google+ Create Member +Laelanie Larach

I was born in Honduras, a beautiful country in Central America. It was the beautiful combination of mountains, tropical forests, and sandy beaches in my country that inspired me at a young age to begin experimenting with different types of artistic techniques. I enjoy painting different themes related to my Latin roots, combined with bold colors.

At an early age, I used pastels, watercolors, and charcoal. After winning some small art contests in school, I was inspired to expand my work to the medium of oil on canvas. Art has always been my passion and I will continue to pursue my dream.

My favorite painting is titled ”Music Fantasy.” Since I was a little girl, my father always played his guitar, and it inspired me to paint a surreal blue guitar with the bold colors that remind me of the love I have for music and the beautiful moments with my father playing his guitar.

Visit +Laelanie Larach's collections to see some of her amazing work!
