Trying Out Plusses as a Blogging Tool

I'm a slacker when it comes to my own personal blog, and to be honest it's hard to put my finger on what culprit is. Perhaps it's the reality that I don't make enough time for it in my day, or maybe it's just that I'm lazy and would rather throw something up real quick and not worry about the details — yea, that's probably it.

In my experience I've come to realize that blogging is not only about creatively writing, it's about reaching your audience properly. We use Twitter to spread the word to our followers, we gather fans on Facebook, and now we have the opportunity to engage on Google+.

Simply put, Facebook is the place you go to post about your crazy weekend, and Twitter is where you go to drop quick knowledge bombs on your followers. But engaging with your people is a lot more rewarding.

Google+ offers this level of engagement with it's ability to thread comments; and It keeps the conversation intact instead of the fragmented feeling you get from Twitter, or the strange feeling you get when you post to Facebook and you're not quite sure who it's being shared with.

So what am I getting at?

I'm going to use laziness to my advantage and will begin blogging on Google+, although, I'm going to try a new tool that I hope will benefit those who do not use Google+ — it's called http://pluss.es.

This allows me to have the advantage of having followers on an already widely used social platform, and it will give me the freedom to share it simultaneously in a blog format for those outside of the network.

If anyone has had experience with this type of setup let me know what you're using, and what I might be able to use to better my Google+ blogging experience.

PS: I'm not spending a whole lot of time on these posts, so don't flame me for typos.
