+Rusty Ferguson  *Circle of Commenter* Edition #9

A Public Shared Circle of Commenter My favorite circle to share.

This is a group focusing on those people that have commented on my personal profile post during the prior two weeks. It also includes key circle re-sharers and those that have reshared circles recently as well as most of the members of from I want to be notified about Rusty’s Balls Community. 

It also includes the Extra Credit Super Star Circle.

Since these folks were engaging with me in the prior week, adding this group will give you a nice group of currently active commenter’s. It is a group of people that like to engage on Google Plus.

When people leave meaningful comments you can get to know them better. This is my favorite type of engager and my favorite shared circle.

Add it and engage with the circle and you’re likely to find engagement on your G+ post rise significantly. The higher your engagement, the more G+ will show your post in your extended circles.


I love to get to know you better; I can do that if you leave a comment on this circle that gives us something to talk about.

Tell me what you like about G+ and what you don’t like about G+ for example but it doesn't matter, anything you want to talk about and I’ll try to carry on a conversation about it with you if I can.


How to be included In Rusty’s Balls 

If you’d like to be included in future engagement circles, go to my profile and hopefully you will find something there that you can plus, comment and reshare. I favor those that also engage on post that are not my shared circles. 

I heavily favor those that reshare circle shares from others that I post on my profile. There are not many of those. Some of these people were added to six circles this week. I don’t know if I’m going to share all six but you’re in the pool if I do. I didn't do this for every shared circle, I selected some of them.

I also favor my post with original content.

I sample certain post each week and find those that engage. I do not include all of my post so engage often if you wish to be included. Also,

1. Plus this post. (Original post)

2. Comment on this post. (Original post)

3. Reshare this circle publicly to your stream. If you are resharing with a page, you should reshare directly from my post or I may fail to detect it. That page should have some engagers! Do not share only to a community.  Please PLUS TAG +Rusty Ferguson when you reshare this post.

4. Don’t be a blue head. Often I have too many people to put in a circle. If that happens, I will remove people that do not have a facial picture first. But I avoid putting most of those people in a circle to start with. Have a facial profile picture of you. We want to know you. You’re in far more danger showing your face on the street than on the Internet.  No face is hard to trust.



I have posted an Evernote Document with a listing of all of my open to the public communities. I often create community engagers circles too.


My Google Plus Pages

This document displayed here: will provide you with a listing of my active Google Plus pages. Nothing to download. Copy and paste or save to your Evernote if you wish. It will be updated from time to time.

I do share page engagers as well.

Astonishing Engagers Happy Monday Hyperball Full content: Click "Read more"

A nice group of people who I found to share and comment my posts, share awesome original content, and people that better the Google Plus community. Rock on guys. I do this weekly to reward those active on Google Plus and to archive my top posts throughout the week. To an awesome Monday!

Blog: One thing I hate about fall is picking up leaves. Apparently my 15 trees on my property decided this year would be an epic year. The family and I picked up 25 50-gallon bags of leaves that took us 5 hours. Sore. Needless to say, sorry for getting this hyperball out late today.

Awesomesauce: Today, I reached 50,000 circles on Google Plus! I went from 50 circles to 50,000 in 7 months. I'm telling everyone this for inspiration, not bragging. Share new things every day, engage people that have awesome engagement (like myself), and do your own creative themed circle shares. Announcement post coming soon after this share is released.

Want to be added to the #hyperball?
1) Add me to your circles.

Like Tigers? I love them! I've had this community up for a few weeks now and it has grown to well over 140 members with people posting actively. Feel free to hit the share button on awesome Tiger shots if you come across them and share it to the community.

Hyperball Shared Circles

2. It's optional but after you share the circle,  you may comment and +1 to make sure you will be included. And make it sure it's in the original post so i can easily see you :-)
3. If you're included already, just keep sharing the circle! Because that would be great :-)
If i missed you, i'm sorry, my bad!

NOTE: You might wanna comment or mention my name on your post because Google is only showing 60% of the people sharing the circle. And i don't know why :-/

Here is a very beautiful Ammolite set in sterling silver. Just a delightful, beautiful play of color just like an opal, but much less expensive. 

Very attractive simple pendant that will hang nicely on the neck. Built to be very beautiful just because of the nature of this stone. #Jewelry #winkcz

Weekly Engagers Circle Share 
August 26, 2013

This was a much lighter week for me as I was wrapping up my vacation on the East Coast. So that makes this #sharedcircles  all the more #awesome

If you're looking for active G+ers to circle so that your stream is filled with engaging things and engaging people--> circle these folks!

I wanted to do something different for this #muchbettermonday  post though-- I'm curious to know what your favorite things to talk about are. 

Generally it my topics tend to cover #socialmedia#marketing , #creativity#wordpress , #design , #entertainment , #coffee , #christianity  and the occasional other #geek  stuff.

But what I want to know is What is YOUR favorite thing to talk about?
