Pluss.es, the Google+ powered blogging platform has been updated to allow site supporters to create vanity URLs and expose an RSS feed of their public Google+ posts.
Vanity URLs are in the format of [vanity_name].pluss.es, making it very easy to remember and share your blog with others. Be sure that you choose carefully as names can only be chosen once.
RSS feeds are updated daily and will broadcast the last 20 posts made by the user. They can be accessed by going to your new Vanity URL [vanity_name].pluss.es/rss.xml, or via http://www.pluss.es/[YourProfileID]/rss.xml.
To see an example, check out mine at daniel.pluss.es/rss.xml
Becoming a site supporter
To provide a service such as this it requires a fair amount of time and resources. In order to continue to provide such a service a supporter option has been created.
For a single, once off payment of US$15.00 you will receive a Vanity URL of your choosing (subject to availability) and a daily updated RSS feed. You will also continue to have your blog hosted for the lifetime of this website. We're not planning on going anywhere, this is just a way of ensuring that. To become a supporter simply sign in and follow the instructions via your settings page.
Some people won't like this option and that is fine, hosting will still continue as it is now, I am just ensuring the longevity of the site which is better for everyone.
Pluss.es is still under development, so keep your suggestions coming. Below are just a couple of changes we will be rolling out in the near future.
- More default themes for you to choose from
- Customisable CSS, allowing your site to be designed by you
- Tag based visibility of your posts
- More information and pages to make it even more 'blog-like'
