Added Ben Huh to my circles just because his photo makes me laugh. And because the Huffington Post told me to.

Kate Messner originally shared:
 
TEACHERS OF READING & WRITING Let's make a list of teachers of reading & writing on Google+ to help folks connect. I'm thinking English teachers as well as other educators interested in talking about literacy. If you're a teacher and would like to be added, just share your name & link to your profile in a comment (and feel free to share this post so others can contribute - thanks!)

Hey youse twose...I'm just getting the hang of G+, so am not sure what, exactly, happens when I click "share". But NOW I realize...if you hit Kate Messner's name up above, you can add your name and details to her list, which seems to be the main one at this point.

Loved Chris Brogan's post today about how to get started with Google+. Good to learn that I can choose who to share information with in the stream. (One of the most annoying things about TW and FB is that everyone is subjected to everyone else's every thought - there's no selection process.) And just 'cause I'm excited to be so new here? I thought I'd share it with Y'ALL.
