Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404CC G+
Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post to public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share our brilliance.Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9t2013-05-08 19:56:31324401632CC G+

Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #10 of 11 (or 12)Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:58:40146202CC G+
Patricia Pinto0Well, here's my circle of Random Wrimos. Apparently you can only share 500 people at one time (and I apparently have over a thousand), so I'll probably do another #nanowrimo circle share during lunch time or something. May the Muses be with you!2012-11-01 00:44:10500704CC G+
Ben Moody0My current #nanowrimo  circle. If you notice you're in here and shouldn't be let me know and I'll remove you. Mostly sharing this out so that people who are building huge circles like  me to watch others in their mad dash can snag it if they want to. This one started a bit ago from the circle +Sarah Rios shared out and I've been adding to it since. Also, if you want to be added to the circle let me know. I'll likely reshare it Nov. 2nd ( I need to get a good start on Nov. 1st :p ) if I get more than 10 or so more people into it by then :)2012-10-26 13:33:07418506CC G+
Crochet Along on Google+118Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with you the +Crochet Along on Google+ Followers circle. This is all 117 people who have followed us and either are playing along or waiting for the right project to jump in for. I'm sharing in case you want to circle each other for some moral support. 2012-10-16 17:40:03117105CC G+
kat Folland12,222This is my NaNoWriMo 2012 Circle. Every person it is has confirmed that they are either participating in NaNo or want to be in the circle regardless of whether or not they participate.If you aren't in this circle, but wish to be, comment on this thread. Likewise if you're in the circle but have changed your mind. I will share an updated circle towards the end of the month. Happy writing, all!2012-10-09 01:21:16298906CC G+
Anna Mannino2,231Whether you have told me you write, or you participated in #NaNoWriMo last year, this is my circle of writers. Strangely only 500 people can be shared at a time, so this is only most of you.If you'd like to be in my writers circle, let me know. I mostly post around and about NaNoWriMo stuff. I try to also do a lot of hangouts to help those who need the support of a local meetup but can't make their local meetups for whatever reason, or just prefer talking to strangers on the internet as opposed to strangers in a coffee house. (Whatever, I don't judge).2012-10-02 04:30:31501501CC G+
Ben Langhinrichs3,812Young Adult AuthorsThis is a circle for authors of Young Adult books/stories/etc. It is intended to be used to find each other for writerly chit chat and advice, and for others to find us (i.e., fans, readers, the aforementioned young adults). This list is growing quickly, but some people have been removed because they don't seem active on Google+ (no public posts recently or at all).Please re-share this circle with fans and other YA writers. Let others who belong on this list let me know. I will share this periodically, but simply re-add it and it will figure out who is new. G+ is good like that.2012-07-26 00:42:5196958CC G+
Gay USA Pages3,724Top RelevancyI've seen a couple of these now from folks like +Carter Gibson and +Farran Lee.  Thought I'd toss ours out as well for you!  According to Google+, these are the 99 most relevant people for us (100 if you include us).  There's a nice mixture of both pages and profiles in it.  A good chunk of the circle posts LGBT related posts and the remainder are either members of the community or friendly towards it... or of course, just generally awesome people we interact with.  A quick disclaimer: Before you add the circle, be sure to check them out.  I know there are a couple I'll have to mute a few of their posts because they post NSFW imagery on occasion, but it is sporadic and the rest of their posts are suitable so no need to worry too much, but want to make sure you're forewarned, just in case when you add them its one of those sporadic moments! If you'd like to share yours, go to your circles page, click on "Your Circles" (if not selected already) and then change the drop down to "Relevance" (again, if not already that way) and create a circle with the first 99 people. Then share away!  Why 99?  If you include yourself, that's a pretty 100 people.  Not only is it a circle that isn't overwhelming, but it is also a small enough amount you can let them know that they're relevant to you... like you all who got a notification about this circle.  :)   #lgbt   #circleshare  2012-07-24 18:29:0010023218CC G+
Al Navas3,592This Circle should contain only (?) translators. If I included you here, and you are not a translator, please let me know in the Comments below.

Al Navas0My Interpreter and Translator Circle.Welcome all new interpreters and translators to Google+! Our community is growing each day. As a newcomer, you can add this Circle to your Circles, and you will be able to see everyone's posts - that is, the posts of people who post.A big Duh - right! - because many people are still not posting. In fact, I encourage you to post, and to make Google+ your home. We have a lot of interaction going on, and you can also benefit from others' posts, and by interaction with fellow professionals like you do not get elsewhere.This Circle contains 500 fellow professionals. Why 500? Because that is the maximum a Circle will hold.This means I must split the Circle into three: Interpreters, Translators, and Localizers. 'Tis time to do some Circle Curation.While you are looking at this Circle, please consider also looking at our #EPT initiative, at https://plus.google.com/b/103996224417686513632/103996224417686513632/about/p/pub. And please consider participating in our Interpreter and Translator Hangouts on Air on Sunday afternoons. While at our page, please take a look at the videos we have posted - the page is also the archive of all our hangouts.Also, if you have questions about the #EPT initiative, please contact one of the team members: +Gerda Prato-Espejo , +Esther Navarro-Hall , or +Al Navas .Enjoy!.2012-04-12 16:40:24500420CC G+

Tyler Smith45Here's my first go at sharing a circle of Translators. It's a new circle for me, so it will change as I spend some time curating it and identifying active contributors. I'll post the fresh one periodically. If you are a translator or if you know any translators, please let me know and I'll add you to the circle. Also, if you have a translator circle of your own that you're willing to share, I'm definitely interested. #translation #localization #language2012-01-18 01:54:0525201CC G+

Ben Langhinrichs1,541YA AuthorsThis is a circle for those who write young adult fiction. It is intended to be used to find each other for writing-related chit chat and advice, to get to know each other, and for others to find us (i.e., fans, readers, even the aforementioned *young adults*). This list is growing, but I have found that many YA authors started G+ accounts and then never used them, at least not for public posts. I've tried to only add people who have posted in September/October.Please re-share this circle with fans, other YA writers and young people who have snuck on to Google+ or slipped in after turning 18. Let others who belong on this list let me, +Ben Langhinrichs, know. I will share this periodically, but simply re-add it and it will figure out who is new. G+ is good like that.Ben Langhinrichs, young at heart, shared a circle with you.2011-10-20 13:13:26822211CC G+

OK, y'all... today, I'm driving to Austin. This morning, I saw someone with a Keep Austin Weird koozie. Just now, I saw someone wearing a Keep Austin Weird t-shirt.

As both Gibbs and the Doctor tell us, there are no coincidences... so... should I be worried?

"Black people are dying and it’s not your personal fault that black people are dying because you’re white but if you don’t make a purposeful choice to become a white ally and actively work to dismantle the racist system running America for the benefit of white people then it becomes your shame because you are white and black lives matter."

"At the Bundy Ranch, armed whites confronted the government to stand along side a rancher who’s been stealing from the government. They went as far as having weapons drawn on the police– and the response? The government backed down.

"Compare that to Ferguson, where protesters have been met with police who were more armed up than the folks I served next to in Operation Allied Force (and I’m not even kidding)."

(Whenever someone tries to say "it's not about race!! 1! 1!!" I'm going to start screaming, "CLIVE BUNDY")

Ugh... trying to write an article/post about Differently-Abled Sunday for work (church). Like, how to be inclusive and welcoming to people with disabilities. I do not feel qualified to write this... I feel like I'm either babbling or 'splanin. Or working to get my cookies.

Wondering how much I can just quote from other sources (this is going in a print magazine, so citing is more of a pain...)

Help?

Today is my 30th birthday, so I'm writing this letter to Google

I'm going to put all the jokes about my youth coming to a close aside and talk about something that I usually don't ever speak of. The wave of technology in the past couple decades has been amazing. I used a lite brite as a kid. Now 3 year olds are using iPads. We've reached whole new levels but have somehow managed to ignore people with disabilities who could really benefit from these advancements. I know we all want to create things for recreation, but how about helping some people out along the way.

Hearing disabilities are rarely ever talked about and if you watched that deaf girl hear for the first time on youtube about a year ago, you'd think that deafness had been cured once and for all. Less than 1% of hearing impaired people in the U .S. could even benefit from the type of surgery she... more »

Today is my 30th birthday, so I'm writing this letter to Google

I'm going to put all the jokes about my youth coming to a close aside and talk about something that I usually don't ever speak of. The wave of technology in the past couple decades has been amazing. I used a lite brite as a kid. Now 3 year olds are using iPads. We've reached whole new levels but have somehow managed to ignore people with disabilities who could really benefit from these advancements. I know we all want to create things for recreation, but how about helping some people out along the way.

Hearing disabilities are rarely ever talked about and if you watched that deaf girl hear for the first time on youtube about a year ago, you'd think that deafness had been cured once and for all. Less than 1% of hearing impaired people in the U .S. could even benefit from the type of surgery she received, a procedure which even then costs $100,000 and is not covered by insurance. The rest have a different type of deafness or disability. Hearing impairment is not just for old people and in the 23 years since I got my first pair of hearing aids, the technology has barely changed at all. The cost hasn't changed either. I am blessed to have many other advantages in life and I barely consider this one to be a disability, but having watched the rest of the world transform from the Flinstones to the Jetsons, I can't help but wonder if it's almost too late for progress to start being made. How can an ear microphone seriously cost 5 grand?

If I had to make one request for a birthday present this year, it'd be for Google to announce an initiative to tackle this problem. If they can make Google Glass for $1,500 and talk about making it cheaper, then surely they can make affordable hearing aids and upgrade the tech by 20 years. Today I am 30, but a part of me has felt 80 years old since I was 7. 

People say your message can get heard on Google+. I'm curious to see if that's true.

RJ and and I are attempting to make banana bread. I think his will turn out better than mine.

I don't have any baking soda. Also, all our bowls are still at the old house.
