Quick G+ Tip at #GrowingCirclesHop

It's Party Time!
These next few weeks of May are pretty crazy, and time is really limited. Our Google Plus Tips will return as soon as we can. In the meantime, we'll be on the lookout for Party Hashtag Posts to Feature, so be sure that you're using our hashtag when you post!

QUICK NOTE (a FAST G+ Tip): Using the party hashtag when you leave comments on others' posts is also helpful. Why? Because it keeps our hashtag fresh in feeds and relevant for searches.The more it is used, the more chance we can be "trending" on G+, and when we're trending, the bigger our audience is!

For this week, we simply chose a recent G+ share from our new Co-Host...

Megha of The Art Bug is our May Co-Host. Here's one of her latest shares, a great collection of floral tops for spring and summer wear!
Visit her G+ Profile and add her to your circles. She's also #4 in the linky down below!

And remember: You need to use the party hashtag AND link up for the best benefits of the party. =0) 

*** Don't forget! ***
The party stays open until Friday night at midnight, EST! So don't be shy, come and visit on Friday too. Show us your G+ posts. Search our party hashtag in G+ to see awesome content for TWO days instead of just one! 

Don't forget to use the party hashtag:

To make the most of this link party, please follow the rules below.
1. You MUST add your hosts and co-hosts to one of your circles before linking up. 
Cathy  |  Sinea  |  Kim

2. Link up your personal Google+ profile, blog or business G+ pagesOR -- you can link up a specific G+ post of yours - but NOT your blog URL. 
Note: If you want to post both of them, we're cool with that too! The only thing we ask is that you limit your post shares to one per blog/business page. We have no set limit for personal post shares, but please keep it to a reasonable number (preferably not more than 5 posts using our party hashtag).
3. Publicly share a post - (new or old) on G+ and use the party hashtag #GrowingCirclesHop. See note above for limit guidelines.
4. Connect with others by clicking on your #growingcircleshop hashtag, or enter "growingcircleshop" in the search box at the top. Engage with at least 2-3 others by a Share, +1 and/or Comment. 
5. Add new friends to your circles! Be social. It's completely worth it!
6. Help us spread the word about this party so we can try for trending on Google Plus each week! 
Check back on G+ and +1/comment on the party posts with our hashtag #growingcircleshop until Friday night.

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!
