Throughout the next 12 hours, check back on G+ and +1 posts with the hashtag #growingcircleshop.

Google+ Tips

The real participation comes with sharing a blog post to G+ using the party's hashtag and engaging with others who are also sharing posts from this party. Interaction and engaging with others on G+ will bring you the most success! You will notice some posts have a very large picture associated with their post and others have a tiny picture. To increase your chances of being shared, post a photo along with your post link and NOT the tiny one that gets posted automatically with the link. The bigger and more clear your photo, the better chance of it being shared because those are the posts that G+ users want to share with their followers.

I have a question that is probably going to be an obvious answer but here it goes:
I'm wondering why my #growingcircleshop post almost never shows up when I click that hashtag (#growingcircleshop) in google+? Does it show up for everyone else but not for me because it's my post?

I love this idea, Kim! G+ is growing fast. I actually prefer it to Facebook. I'm looking forward to growing my circle and meeting some new people!

Google+ is growing really fast. It amazes me sometimes to see how fast something can take off like that.
