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
