Google Plus Resources

NOTE: This is obviously not meant to be an all-inclusive list, just some links accrued in my measly corner of the G+ world. There was no specific "criteria" to what has been included; just links I stumbled upon or found to be helpful and useful. Original authors' links have been included when possible. A lot of information is probably definitely repeated within the detailed guides, but some of it is not.

I am sending this list to +Mariva H. Aviram to include in a public Google Document (http://goo.gl/4zRc6) so that updated information will be available when the link is re-visited later on (instead of scouring the web for fragmented re-shared posts). Essentially, it is a compilation of compilations (how's that for being meta). Please copy/paste that link to refer to in the future for updates. The info below is only included for your convenience, and as mentioned, this info will be added to that document soon (if it's not already there).

+Melody Lynn has also recently compiled a "MothaLode" list of resources (http://goo.gl/f99RB) that will hopefully be assimilated into Mariva's document soon.

There is a mind-boggling myriad of excellent content out there, so keep creating and sharing, particularly with newer users of G+.
