I thought of something to post, but I posted it over there, on the web.

I wish I could disable the "Added you on Google+" notifications in the red-badge thing, but there's no such setting.

I get tons of those notifications, and most look a lot like spam accounts, so I never even look. The red badge means nothing to me — it's just something I click on and blindly clear.

I actually do care about notifications when someone shares a post with me or mentions me in a post, but the over-notification of new followers is desensitizing me to all notifications.

I suppose I should post something here.

It's going to take me a while to figure out how and when to use this. For any given thing I want to say or share, I'll have to decide:

- Whether to post it only to Google+ rather than another service. This is rarely going to be the case for the foreseeable future, I think.
- Whether to cross-post it to multiple services, running the risk of annoying the people who follow me in both places.

I also wish this had a Preview feature so I could test my formatting.

This is definitely second to Twitter in my daily rounds. Seems like cross-posting here would very likely be redundant to Twitter -- unless you need to post more than 140 chars. It's still early, but what's the incentive to make this my first stop for news and views? Also, for now the inability to hide comments under posts is a major pain (check out Leo Laporte).
