I’m not sure what to do with this place. I’ve got posts out there. I’ve got them here and on my main blog and there are readers both places but Google+, somewhere I haven’t been more than months I don’t think I have more readers and more interaction already than on both of my blogs combined.
I like the idea of my own blog, but the reality is I like interaction and readers and I have a LOT more of those, engaged readers, on Google+ than I have on either blog.
It’s the engagement of the readers that’s attracting me. Granted, I’m pretty careful about who I circle, and while over 2k people follow me I don’t follow that many at all. I’m just over 300 that I read, but I add more all the time, and sometimes remove people. There’s such a feeling of community, of conversation, of participation on Google+ I find I’ve spent far more time there than here.
I need to figure out what’s going to happen next obviously. Mirroring or merely importing those posts to here is a possibility but it seems like it’s diluting things. If you’re on Google+look me up. If you’re not… the conversation there is absolutely incredible.
In truth I'll probably mirror things here for a while. I predict there will be a thing at some point that means content posted here will show up over there in a stream of some sort. I'm not sure how it'll work or if it'll be google created or a third-party plugin. I look for that time to come.
In the meantime I'm going to bring something over here that I posted over there. It's sort of long, but I think I'm going to talk more about it over here... It's easier to have a series of posts over here than over there. The stream, the way it works, sweeps things away pretty quickly. Blogs are going to be better for serial posts I think than G+. But WOW at the interaction and back-and-forth comments etc. over there compared to either of my blogs. Unbelievable.
