I Got An Invite to Google+

Thank you, Therese!

I'm sold

I am having so much fun organizing my Google+ circles. I couldn’t get into Facebook because I’m not one of those who exposes my life to the world. Google+ understands me. Anything I post goes only to those I want it to.

For example, I have a split personality. I’m part writer, part geek, and part attached to my military kids. Google+ lets me send tech tips to my tech friends, WIP updates to my writer friends and discuss patriotic stuff with my military folk. No one has to wade through posts and links they aren’t interested in anymore.

I do need to add people to my circles. The few I have there are mighty lonely. Anyone else on Google+ who wants to be friends? Anyone not on Google+ that wants an invite so we can be friends.

I hope I don’t sound desperate.

    • Hi LT Tatislebron, I’ve forwarded an invite to your gmail account and added you to my military circle. It will appear to be Navy-oriented because I started it to support my Navy LTjg daughter (she’s on the USS San Diego), but I now have a son in the Army (a specialist, still in 25S school) so I’ve broadened the reach of my articles. Thank you for your service!


  1. I got an Google+ invite a couple weeks ago, and I was all excited. I signed up, got organized…and haven’t been back since. Are we reaching the saturation point with social media? How many hours a day will it take to keep up with all this stuff?


    • Hi Steve, The reason Google+ appeals to me is I can differentiate among the people I know. I didn’t use Facebook that much because some stuff I didn’t want business acquaintances to know, nor would they be interested. Google allows me to make that separation. I see myself using it much more than I do Facebook.
