Musings on successful sharing and Google+ topics

I started on Google+ with no-one I knew, even today only a handful of my friends are here. I'm no techie or celebrity, just an ordinary middle-aged female from Finland. Love sharing my thoughts, posting (hopefully) interesting content, engaging in conversations and helping out Goobies (newcomers).

Well, then, which circle is right for me?

Perhaps "Legally blonde non-geeks who are into Google+, writing, tech, edu, travel, scuba diving, golf, science and all kinds of interesting stuff." Right. I'm dissicult to circle, so many have just made a circle for me alone... Some have turned the 'volume' all the way up and some all the way down. :D

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone. - Bill Cosby

The words from Bill Cosby have been my guideline, I'm not a part of any popular clique, just been doing my thing all along.
If a nobody from a small country can achieve to be in so many circles (thank you, my dear Circleverse!), then anybody can. It just takes time, effort and perseverance. And posting in public.
Find your niche and be yourself, that's my advice.

What about the topics in posts?

What I’ve enjoyed most in Google+ is the lack of status updates like ‘I had an omelet for brekkies’ or ‘I became Mayor of Thingummybob in Be-Square’.
The standard of posts is very high, ranging from tech to religion, humor to science and all sorts of news. And cats.
But the best bulletins to me are various opinions that the Plussers write on almost any theme possible.

Don’t try to please anyone on Google+ but be yourself:

Write about the things that interest you, share links and videos that you find amusing or intriguing. Post stuff with good content, as that is what the public is looking for.
Don't pay too much attention to grammar or punctuation, remember there are always those who (if there's no other way to get your goat) will correct your spelling and not concentrate on your content. - I know, I post about grammar... :-) But just to give people a chance to learn about it. Not being able to use the apostrophe correctly doesn't mean one cannot write good stuff.

Google+ is what you make of it.

To make good use of Google+, you should follow the five C’s: Circle, Comment, Contribute, Curate and… Circle. – +Johnathan Chung

Do you have more thoughts about this, anything you'd like to add?

A fair amount of times I have written things out and then delete them because they aren't perfect...

So I've decided to just type out what I want to say, and even it's it's not perfect... it's getting posted... Sorry if I upset anyone with my various views on anything.. Actually... Scratch that... I'm not sorry... I am who I am and if you don't like you don't have to listen to me. But I will still say what I feel! :)

Can anyone confirm is this is true? If so... The media industry needs to be fired! Everyone should be hearing about this!
CANCER CURE. Please reshare this. With no fortune to be made in this approach for an unpatentable drug, pharmaceutical companies and media are ignoring the story.

"Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. This drug doesn’t require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies."

if +Peter Bromberg is right with these fasts which I think he is... Is there anyone that can deny that raising taxes is a bad idea?
The U.S. tax code is not designed to promote jobs and economic growth.
The U.S. currently has the second-highest corporate income tax rate in the world and will soon have the highest.
High tax rates are encouraging businesses to transfer jobs abroad and keep their profits overseas.
Our capital gains tax is already higher than many of our international competitors and will rise further still when the current round of tax cuts expire next year. High capital gains tax rates discourage entrepreneurship and investment in job-creating companies.
Proposals to raise tax rates for high earners will increase taxes on entrepreneurs and small businesses, which create two out of every three new jobs.

The U.S. federal tax code is more than 3.8 million words long according to the IRS’ Taxpayer Advocate.

A study found that the 1993 increase in the top tax rate to 39.6 percent reduced the likelihood of an upper middle class worker starting their own business by as much as 20 percent. New businesses started by entrepreneurs are the primary source of job creation in the U.S. 2008, Americans spent more than 6.1 billion hours complying with the U.S. tax code, the equivalent of three million people working full time.

Following Japan’s planned five percent reduction in corporate tax rates, set to take effect in April, the U.S. will have the highest corporate tax rates in the world. According to the OECD, the U.S. combined corporate income tax rate, which includes the 35 percent federal tax rate and state taxes, was 39.21 percent in 2010. Japan’s current combined corporate income tax rate of 39.54 percent is only slightly higher. By comparison, the average corporate tax rate of industrialized countries is 26 percent.

The capital gains tax rate in the United States is currently 15 percent, just above the 14.5 percent average for other industrialized countries and will soon rise to 20 percent when the current extension of tax relief expires next year.

Because small businesses are often taxed at the individual level, raising the top income tax rate of high earners from 35 to 39.6 percent would reduce the likelihood of hiring by affected small businesses by 8 percent.
