Valentine's Day is Near {#GrowingCirclesHop}

Happy Valentine's Day!

From: Growing Circles Hop #54.

It was really difficult to find a party hashtag feature post this week, because not everyone is using the hashtag. Either that, or, people aren't linking up to the linky. PLEASE do both for the maximum exposure! This week, we just went through the hashtagged posts. But don't forget to link up as well!

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.
LINK UP below!!! You can now link up your G+ profile page -OR- you can link up a specific G+ post that you've already publicly shared using our party hashtag!

Hi Kim,
You know what I've noticed most weeks - is that my google+ post never shows up when I click on the hashtag (#growingcircleshop)(many other posts show up just not mine) - I've tried it with #GrowingCirclesHop thinking that might make a difference but my post usually never shows up until that evening. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Thanks for hosting!
