Did you know you can format your G+ posts?
Bold: Use asterisks around a word to bold it. Or around your headline — which amounts to the first sentence of your post.
Italics: Use underscores around the word/s you want to italicize.
Strikeout: Run a line through a word or sentence (strikethrough) by putting hypens around that word or sentence.
Bullets: If you want a list to stand out in a Google+ post, hit your space bar, enter a hypen, and then hit your space bar again. This is primitive, but it works.
