    I have to admit I’m not using G+ at all. I guess this is because, for me, it seems like ANOTHER thing to have to link to, along with FB, Pinterest, Tumblr, Stumbleupon and all the other things that have been suggested over the years.

    I should, I think, and maybe this post has had the effect of giving me the necessary kick up the bahookie.

    Thank you. 🙂
