Wednesday Hump Day



Okay I have a question for you. It is about GOOGLE +.

I have people joining me on google + that I don't know.  I have a little group of followers on google +.  Now most of them have a blogger account.

Why are they joining me on google + and not on Google Friends Connect? 

Do you all use google +?

Why and do you talk with people on there?

I think this is kind of the way of the future and frankly I am not understanding it.

I am not brilliant, but I am smart.  But I cannot figure out google +.

HELP!

Tell me what you know about it or think about it.

THANKS.



I feel like this sometimes - do you?


Now I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Pinterest and I get Pinterist.  I am a pinner!!!!!!!!!



THOUGHT OF THE DAY:



And you know - that is the truth too!

Good morning my friend. I am not using Google+ anymore, I don't really see the point since I am using FB and Blogger. Hope you're having a good day!
Big hugs
Eva

Normal is boring! lol And... I am not really into Google+ myself. Not very interesting to say the least.

Fiona said...

Hi Sandie


I am not using Google + either
just blogger and FB

and maybe it's just me and I know you say you love it but I just don't get Pinterest.

Happy Wednesday

Beth said...

I am not understanding the google circle of friends. Too much for this old mind to take in. :-)

SweetMarie said...

I'm not sure about Google. I just do the blogging and I'm starting a website for our screen printing business. I've got so much to learn! I'll have to check back later to learn about this! :) Hope you have a wonderful day!

Jill said...

So glad you brought this up as I don't get Google + either! I've had the same questions.

Enjoy your day!

Sandra said...

i think google plus is just another thing to bother with and do not use it. i just got an invite today to join a blogger on it, which i refused. i don't really know much about it except i don't do it.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I do Facebook and Blogger ... that's more than enough for me. ;-)

laurie said...

I'm not using google anymore, I have blogger and face book, thats more than enough for me, have a great day hump day!

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Google +/- or around and about, it is all a mystery to me. I do know that since this appeared, I get more spam and comments from pseudo followers/friends (FB). If the comments sound like a clown on crack, I eliminate them. I deleted four last month. I am happy just staying with what I know, however limiting that may be.

Hi Sandie,
Google circles is for your friends.. its new to google. you have the option to use it or not. It really is just keep track on your friends.
I use blogger and FB..blogger is better Sandie,
Remember when you said to me about having to use word verify.. that is good, as you can see who is sending comments and you can choose not to or to publish them. its security.
I am on Pinterest. Now and again when i have a free moment i pin.. and upload.. its fun..
Hope you sort it all out.
Best wishes happy tuesday(hump day for you)

I am totally addicted to Pinterest. I can spend hours just staring at all the pretties and have found some how to's and need to knows that really work! I am at a lost at Google + also, hope you share any explanations that you receive.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Yes, it is true for sure I have found many ways to do the wrong thing hopefully I'm leaning not to do again. Pinterest is fun. I don't know much about Google at all so no help there. I do google things when I do a search that is about what I know. Hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I am on Google plus also but I have no clue what it's all about either. I only joined because I could no longer post any photos to my blog posts and didn't want to pay the $2.49/month to upgrade. Someone told me if I joined Google plus I wouldn't have any problems and that part is true. I don't understand it and don't really have time! Hope your Wednesday is going great!

The Brown Recluse said...

Google makes me mad because they are wanting way too much personal information, and they are sneaky about getting it! You can't use certain features if you don't give them your bio!

I'll stick to Blogger, which is owned by Google. I can't win.

I signed up for Pinterest but I don't ever use it. Not even sure what it's all about.

BelovedBomber said...

I don't know anything about google +. I think I am just settling in to posting this way :) I like things simple. Thanks for all the prayers. We arrived back in the states safely yesterday and caught up on some sleep. Trying to get back in to our routine now.

Jeanie said...

I am not a Google + user, though my son has encouraged me to get on it. I have mostly avoided Pinterest because I don't need another time-consuming addiction....and I am sure I would become addicted.

jack69 said...

We are off and on the signal here and are frustrated not understaning all we know about the phones and this problem with the net.


this RV park is in the boonies and signal is shaky.
Love from the forest. We will be better next week.

Love you

Susan said...

Hi Sandie!

Happy Wednesday! Nope, no Google+ here. NO TIME. Going to have my daughter show me how to do Pinterest soon.

Take care and have a wonderful Wednedsday! Susan

Paula said...

No don't use it either. Have a good day. I was supposed to meet my daughter in San Antonio for lunch but we called it off as we both had a long way to drive and the weather is threatening.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Google+ is suppose to be like FB only Google based. I only use it to follow my daughter Ashleigh. I've had people 'friend' me on their also. You can block them...I'll explain it to you sometime. Hugs, Linda

Lynn said...

Somehow I've escaped Google +. :)

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Wow what a read on your comments back. I read one gal in here she has to pay 2.49 a month for her pictures if she goes over. I never knew you had a limit on blogger. If so . I better delete them in here. So she did Google plus? Now I am lost.I thought blogger was free to add what we all use what your doing? Didnt you? I use Google for search
I went to Pinterest and I was so confused. I went off. I had blooger years ago and then it said I had to upgrade to this one. Then it said they were going to close. I am still here.

I know many went off here to Pinterest becuase they said that blogger was closing. Looks like they did not.. Yet one gal is from Pintress and she made a comment on my blog. I guess you can post from Pinterest here and if blogger closes they already have Pinterest and they will not lose their friends.
I used the sign in letters to others but I cannot half the time know what the letters are.So I go less to their blogs. Some gals say they are fed up with that security method. So I put mine off.If I dont want people on my blog once they wrote. I can delete them but I have nice people and dont need too and so do you.I am just now really concern about loading up pictures in here and later bering charged.

Helen said...

Happy Wednesday Sandie! I'm sticking with Blogger and Facebook ... I ventured into Google+ one time and ventured right back out. I am also on Pinterest but find it completely overwhelming ... I let go of Living Boldly and now have just one blog Poetry Matters where I will post more than poems ... two blogs was one too many.

TARYTERRE said...

Can not offer any advice. I am not on Google + and do not understand the pinning thing. I am so backward. No FACEBOOK either. LOL take care. Sure someone will be able to answer your questions.

Jane said...

Very good question! I have wondered that too and that is why I am scared of Google. So I will read your followers opinions on this tech stuff that I don't claim to ever know .

Kim said...

I don't use or understand Google +. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing until I'm forced to change :) (Then I'll complain about it) Lol
I do the same thing on pinterest. Pin a bunch of recipes I will never make!

barbara l. hale said...

I have google+ but haven't figured it out yet either. But I have figured out Pinterest. It can be addictive. I have to keep myself from going there too often.

Wendy said...

Love the last quote Sandi... how true it is!

TexWisGirl said...

i have a g+ acct but rarely post anything to it. and for the folks that circle me that i don't know, i ignore.

Debbie said...

Joining you in the "I don't get google +" corner. Don't use it. Don't get it. Frankly, I neither like nor trust it. How silly is that? I'm getting paranoid in my old age.

Gloria Hood said...

I have Google + but don't use it cause I don't know how!!! I got enough going on with Blogger, FB, Pinterest. Don't need anything else!

The Boston Lady said...

Haha! I had to laugh at most of these comments because I agree with most of them. I THINK I have google+, but obviously don't use it, whatever it is. I stick to my comfort zone which is Blogger and sometimes FB. I like Pinterest, but it takes too much of my time if I get started on it, so I stay away. I'm probably missing a bunch of great stuff, but, oh well.

Ann

Retired English Teacher said...

I love that last quote. Isn't it the truth about Pinterest? I pin things and forget all about them, and I haven't used a recipe from there yet.

I know nothing about Google + Thanks for asking the question. I will read the comments from others and see if I can gain some insight.

Grandma Bonnie said...

I know G+ but prefer not to use it. I just like blogging. The other social media sights make me too busy.

Shug said...

Oh yes girl...I am a pinner too!
Love pinterest...
I can't ever keep up with all the changes they make...too stressful for me.
Hugs,
Shug

Michaele said...

I have no advice about the Google thing. Someday I will venture back into Pinterest, but for now I have to stay away. I am just like the woman in the cartoon. lol Have a wonderful day Chatty.

andy said...

Happy Wednesday to you !!!

Dee said...

FB and blogger is all I have...I sure hope they never shut blogger down...I love it.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I don't do Google+. Some people say it will take over for blogs someday. I hope not. I have a dear friend who lost all of her photos from her posts with Google+. Yes that is definitely me on Pinterest.
Hugs, Debby

Ann said...

I signed up for Google+ because my sister wanted me to. I could never quite understand it or figure it out. It seemed really pointless to me.

A Quiet Corner said...

I use my blog & FB...never Google +...but what can I say, Sandie...I'm old!...:)JP

Renae said...

I, along with most of your comments above, don't do G+. I think it is akin to FB so why bother. Google is trying to get us to go with G+ instead of FB, is how I have understood it. I barely do FB with my own blog, let alone G+. I was ADDICTED to Pinterest last fall, but it in turn led me to thinking I want to do a blog, too. So that was good thing. I hardly look at FB or Pinterest any more.

have a great day, Sandie!! love ya!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I'm just real careful with Google. I think they're a little intrusive and know too much. I don't use the Google + thing and I keep my accounts separate.

That corgi :) said...

I haven't tried that part of Google, Sandie. It seems terribly confusing to me when I go on someone's that has it. I like to keep things simple and that looks too complicated.

hope you are enjoying your friend's visit!

Love Of Quilts said...

This was a good question. I would like to know the answer too. No one seem to know the answer. If you do get the answer please post it.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Dont even know what Google Plus is? That is a newey on me.

Hang onto your hat, its going to be a bumpy night again. Be safe!!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandi, I have a Google+ account ---but haven't done much with it. I still use the Blogger profile... IF someone wants to 'friend' me whom I do not know, I don't do it. That goes for FB also.

I do Blogger and FB --and that's about all I can do. Love both of them...

Don't have any interest at all in Pinterest... Lots of my friends love it--but again, I just don't have time.

Wish I could help more.
Hugs,
Betsy

Chicken Wrangler said...

I can't figure it out either. But I do like the last sign you posted! Keep Cool, Chatty!

Dolores said...

I don't use Google + , don't understand it and don't want to learn anything about it. My brain is stuffed already...lol!

I love Pinterest too. I have so many delicious looking and sounding recipes on my board and haven't prepared one...... maybe someday.

Munir said...

I think that Google is Cool.

Renegades said...

Love love the quote about your elders.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I have one of those circle goodle accouts and it does not make sense to me. And really do not have time to try to figure it out!! Just no time- barely time for blogger,, and sometimes look at face book...
but too busy doing other things besides sitting here,
this is good enough for me.
love
tweedles

Mary said...

Ha that is true, I am to soon old and to late smart.

I hope you had a good time with your friend.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

I was on Google + and also on Linkin but have deleted myself from both. Between blogging and using facebook - I'm afraid to put too much more of my info. out there.
I do understand the importance for Linkin if you're still out in the professional world - but google+ is just connecting with others and I ddidn't know all the "others" that I was connecting with.
