Hey Kim!

Thanks for the cheat sheet! I guess I’ll be looking back once in a while to find out how to use Google+. In the mean time! I’m still stuck on hanging out on Facebook… might take a while before I make the shift! ;)

Regards,

Hy Kim,
You have put nice stuf about Google plus. But I don’t know still that how to make a post public that can be viewed by every body in all the circles.

Hey PRE (just a reminder that I require a real name or real name @ keywords and usually break links without it, reminding you since my commenting policy link is hidden at the moment in this temporary theme).

For what you want to do, start here: http://just-ask-kim.com/google-post-privacy-settings-explained/ After you’ve read that, my favorite setting is to select from the list… “Public” “My Circles” & “Extended Circles” which is a bit like overkill but covers all of the bases when I want the most exposure on something. Those three at the same time are doing a real good job for me. Hope that helps!
Kim

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the Google + tips.

btw – are you changing themes? I’m hoping you plan to install CommentLuv soon too!

I bet you’ll have a snazzy new design, send me a tweet when it’s live!

Chat soon girlfriend!

Hey Ileane,

I’m really upset with my beloved Thesis at the moment. I’m fighting with php errors even in the new (and unedited) 1.8.2 and I’m getting nowhere with the support forum. I was down a couple days and couldn’t afford to let my site be fully down for so many days in a row. With debugging turned on, Thesis is vomiting errors all over the place, and two of them are warnings which are significant (notices are insignificant). I switched yesterday to a very very limited plugin list, and the new Twenty Eleven theme (which I’ve wrote a child theme for to adapt it’s sidebar) and so the site is “sort of up”. (and error free). I don’t know what I’m going to do at the moment. Commentluv will be back although I’m giving thought to testing livefyre and it sounds like rather than integrate CL they are looking at embedding something similar but not the same into theirs. I dunno. I’m very “not happy” at my ongoing site issues at the moment.
Kim

Hey Kim, hang in there! I noticed the blog was down the other day but I didn’t realize it was against your will! This 2011 theme is really nice and it’s good to see you up and running again.
I love that widget you’re using for Google web searches. That’s pretty cool! I’m looking forward to more of your Google + posts now too.

In typical Google fashion, a really simple looking interface really has much more features than it seems to at first! Thanks for this!

Nice! Thanks a bunch for this. I have to confess that even though I have tons of online experience, I have shied away from Google+ till now— but with the recent Google+Local changes, it is obvious it will be a force to be reckoned with.
