Pål Børsting21,501♥♥♥ Thank you circle no.4 of 4 containing Photo enthusiasts!  ♥♥♥ ☀☀ ☀To let my plussers know that I appreciate the plussones. ☀☀☀☀☀☀ All of them handpicked by me. This is the real thing :-) ☀☀☀♥♥ And of course the resharers and commenters are here too. ♥♥Last time I got problems with google blocking me for plus mentioning too many so this time I will roll out the four circles gradually.Reshare if you like! Please plus to tell me you have seen it! *There is no need to thank me, this is me thanking you! *In this circle you will find both photographers and their followers. What they have in common is a passion for photos they like.This circle consists of the exceptional people who time and time again reshares, plusses and write nice comments on my photo posts. All of them are real active people, some have been active since I began sharing my photos and still are and some I have seen only for a shorter time.I have separated my Thank you circle into four circles. There is no difference between them except for different people to say thank you to.I already work on the next "Thank you circle"  So if you are missing here, you will be in it if you are active from this week. I do not expect you to like all my photos, so please only plus the ones you like! If I see you twice in a months time I will add you.The four circles is collected from middle of November until now. In parallel I am building a new circle that I started a month ago. In a months time the people in the new circle will be shared. The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share. They are here since they are appreciating my photos. You have to do your own selection after importing the circles.Please let me know if you somehow slipped through my masks. I am doing this in a combined automatic and manual way and I am old enough too know there might be errors. And there have been errors I have discovered. That is really the only thing that bothers me with this circles........ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀  #circle #circles  #publiccircle #circleshare #circlesharing #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle  #sharingcircles  #sharedpubliccircles  #photography #ph2014-01-15 14:56:0541010437159CC G+

(DOMINATION)I am sharing my inner circle in this circle (at least I think most everyone, had a little technical difficulty so I may have missed a few.)This circle is 50% some of my inner circle on G+, and 50% were selected at random from the people who are following me. I am asking everyone to SHARE the circle and help launch some new people into the G+ mix.  Anyone who SHARES this circle is guaranteed a spot in my next circle share. That goes for anyone who shares on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc wave. I will find you through the ripples, but the shares must be public. There is plenty of room to make it a snowball! (That means add the entire circle, then reshare it out, and add yourself to it! You can even add another 100 people if youd like and then share it out) To ALL the NEWBIES: My recommendation is to add in the entire circle, and keep them in their own circle. Over the next week or two, check the stream and move people from the probationary circle to permanent ones. Finally . . . as you know I am always working on something. This means I utilize my circles for different distribution lists etc. Do not be alarmed if I have uncircled you or have not circled you back. It is because I am using the circles for something else at the time. I can only circle 5K people, so at any given time there are many who are not circled back. That does not mean that I don't know you are there, and that I won't help you if I can.  Feel free to tag me in your posts. Approximately 30% of my posts are shares from those who follow me. G+ Network is the BEST place to Network on G+ with REAL PEOPLE. We are building small virtual neighborhoods and town squares all over the globe. We have a team of about 60 moderators who are there to keep things balanced. You can self promote in the G+ Network as long as you are an active member of the community. That means you just "don't post and go." We want engagers and not solicitors in the network.   For more information:https://docs.google.com/document/d/17FCGYkBOaKylcDPsep9W87NItwDzKkMd11ei8FaZ5u0/edit?usp=sharingBLOGGERSMake sure you check my profile every couple of days.

Ben Langhinrichs4,826Romance writersThis is my surprisingly small (so far) circle for authors of Romance (including YA romance, Erotic romance, Paranormal romance - anything romance!) who are active on G+. 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, up-and-coming fictionistas).This list is growing, but is very small compared to some of my other shared genre circles. Please share this circle with readers and other authors. Let me know if you or somebody you know belongs in this circle.2013-04-30 16:42:2138201CC G+

John Ward7,006This is our current Writer's Discussion Circle. I post to this group Monday through Friday once a day. All of the content I post to this group is exclusively about writing, marketing for writers, or discussion questions for the group. I also share a lot of article that contain information that every writer should know. If you'd like to join this group, add the circle and leave a comment here. I'll be happy to add you. Just be aware that I send out notifications with the posts-- so, you'll get one a day Monday through Friday.2012-11-04 13:09:26211301CC 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+
Lacerant Plainer11,919My 'Awesome Engagers' CircleAlso sometimes called my 'VIP Circle'... Highly recommended folk with some extent of tech / geekiness / science / art and photography chops. But more importantly, people who I think are worth following. Their content is always great, engaging with them is a pleasure!Some of them don't even have me in their circles, but they are totally worth it! try adding this as an evaluation circle and see the awesomeness in your stream!If you want to see why some of them are added, follow the hashtag!

Ben Langhinrichs3,962Romance writersThis is my recently-expanded circle for authors of Romance (including YA romance, Erotic romance, Paranormal romance - anything romance!) who are active on G+. 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, up-and-coming fictionistas).This list is growing, but is very small compared to some of my other shared genre circles. Please share this circle with readers and other authors. Let me know if you or somebody you know belongs in this circle.2012-10-21 15:17:1038504CC G+
Ben Langhinrichs3,962Science Fiction Writers CircleThis is my recently-cleaned circle for authors of Science Fiction who are active on G+. 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, bug-eyed monsters). 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 SF 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.2012-10-21 14:37:4116617613CC G+

But whether you're an old hand or just experimenting with the art of writing, you'll find someone here who shares your journey.Go. Circle. Reshare. Enjoy.

Anna Mannino (GoNoAMMo)2,231Whether 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.

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411CC G+

Craig Froehle4,629467 Plussers Well Worth FollowingSome curated recommendations to make your Tuesday a bit more interesting. I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718CC G+

Tip for Youtubers who annotate
I noticed a video had a truncated annotation link, but the creator said it looked right to her. Took me a bit to realize that when seen full screen, it wasn't truncated. Leave extra room and check different resolutions.

Over 20,000 views on my Youtube videos
Not sure that's a particularly unusual accomplishment, but given that I actually create the darn things rather than just grabbing other content and posting it, it feels good. My most popular video is Hold Still, Kate! - Creating a cinemagraph in Gimp 2.8 with 4776 views, and 36 of the 55 videos have over 100 views. (The others are almost all product demos, which garner fewer views but generate lots of business and pay for all this tomfoolery.)

What video editing software would I use?
This is a great video by Peter  Hollens, one of the Creators I support on Patreon, but I have a meta question. What video editing software would somebody use to do this? Would +Blender 3D be enough, or would I need something else? Mostly, I want the ability to make green screen sections and edit in video inside the video. Anybody know?

If you're okay with a little risqué
She (the Madhat Kat) creates a fascinating blend of burlesque, pin up, poetry and sketches, but she needs you to be a Patron. Just $1 a month, or more if you like, and you could be a Patron of the Arts (and get the inside scoop on the risqué bits). Trust me, you want to see this photo by Andrew J. Baran, though perhaps not when the boss/wife/kids are watching. (No nudity, but still)

Every time a video comes out, I get notified and can download the music (which I would otherwise buy anyway) and watch the video. I feel good knowing I'm supporting a very cool effort. Win win.

We should have a Delete an Unused Social profile day
Let's face it, most of us have joined various social networks that we do not currently use. We can't be everywhere, but it does leave around misleading contact information, passwords, etc. If you have joined a network or site that you simply don't use, why not remove the account? If you think you might use it, at least update your profile and make sure you are not using any "generic" passwords which if hacked might give people access to networks you do use. #lifetips

last chance to snag the The Clockwork Giant at a discounted price ($3.99) for Kindle! http://amzn.com/B006KYQ9N2

price goes up April 7th at 11pm PST

In an age of science, even the most unlikely engineer can change the world.

Chroniker City, 1881

Petra Wade, self-taught clockwork engineer, wants nothing more than to become a certified member of the Guild, an impossible career for an impoverished shop girl. Still, she refuses to give up, willing to do anything to work in the Guild's exclusive workshops. When she meets Emmerich Goss, she finally finds the opportunity she's been searching for.

Newly recruited into the Guild, Emmerich needs help designing a new power system for a top-secret, Guild-sanctioned automaton, and he is convinced that only Petra can help him. But if her involvement on the project is discovered, Emmerich will be marked for... more »

Introducing CoexLinks Fidelity
Blog post: http://planetlotus.org/bd496c
Today, we released Coexlinks Fidelity. While it is technically CoexLinks 3.5, it is the biggest addition of functionality for CoexLinks in years. The core CoexLinks functionality of converting doclinks to usable links in Outlook, Google Mail or other web mail is still in place, and more flexible and powerful than ever. But now, there are two additional areas of functionality added to enhance the power and value of CoexLinks:

While it is fun to see my 707,276 views
I think Google might want to follow Twitter's example and show larger numbers as 707K or 0.7M or something. Someone like +Robert Partridge has 14,585,581 views, and that's starting to get unwieldy. Once you get to +Mike Elgan's 332,951,251, it is just ridiculous. The mouseover could show an exact number, I suppose.

Gimp 2.8 is even more powerful with the +G'MIC plugin
In this, I show you how you can try out a variety of G'MIC filters with artistic effects, sharpening/softening effects, specialized filters for color, lighting and more, and then switch easily between different effects to see what you like. You can oven overlay multiple effects that work well together.

You can get the free G'MIC plugin at http://gmic.sourceforge.net

Thoughts on +Patreon as a potential Creator
Patreon is an interesting crowdfunding site which funds ongoing efforts more than startups, and seems initially focused on music and the arts. While I am a Patron (subscriber to another's campaign), I am not yet a Creator, so these thoughts are primarily from my research through which campaigns seem to work (lots of subscribers, goals met) and which do not (few subscribers).

1) Treat your Patrons as either fans or team members, not as customers. Rewards/goals/blogs should reflect that. These are the people who want to give you money because they believe in you. Don't treat them as customers, even though they may be, because they aren't there to be sold to, but to express solidarity.

2) Goals should be tangible, attainable and provide value to both you and your patrons. The way goals work is... more »

(For the curious who don't already know, that is Behati Prinsloo. I chose her for the t-shirt, really I did. I have one just like it.)

Raja, Emergent!
By day, Rohit wrestled with complex coding problems at the lowest rung of the least significant consulting firm in the poorest business district in Bangalore. But when he visited the Garh Palace in Bundi on holiday, he felt that he was far more, a raja of the utmost importance.

The music goes well with the video, and it's fun to watch the girls doing, um, whatever sort of gymnastics this is.

Any of you use Patreon for funding?
I just signed on as a Patron for Scott Bradlee and his Postmodern Jukebox videos, but am tempted to do something as a Creator for Gimp tutorial videos (maybe fund a video camera and some studio setup).

I like Kickstarter a lot, but it is focused on the start up phase. I like how Patreon focuses on the ongoing creation phase. I also like this funding model more than advertisements, as it both allows for more voluntary engagement and higher levels of engagement with those who want to feel some ownership/partnership. 

Anybody have experience with it or thoughts top share?

Use humor and showmanship to get noticed
It can be hard in the early days for a new business to get noticed. One key thing to remember is that there are advantages as well as disadvantages to being small and unestablished.

One advantage is that you don't have to take yourself quite as seriously. With less to lose, you can afford to do some silly or outrageous things that in a more mature company might be seen as desperate. It is tempting to think that what you need more than anything else is money in the early days, but what you need more than money is attention.

Of course, once you have the attention, you need to earn the repeat business and the critical word-of-mouth recommendations that will make you successful, but you can't earn them if nobody is there to notice your excellent service or outstanding product.

Since every business is different, and... more »

Worth a listen
I always enjoy +Meri Amber's songs, but this video and song are definitely on the more mellow end. If you're in the mood for that, watch it in high def and let the music flow over you.

Notes to SQL Server or DB2
In case you need to take rich text and other data out of a Notes database and put it into SQL Server or DB2 or SharePoint Lists or another relational database. No developer necessary.

Has Google done something to hash tag searching?
I'm not sure to whom I should direct this, possibly +Google+ Developers, but maybe somebody knows. I posted a post with #supportindieauthors , but when I click on it, it is the only post with that hash tag found, even though I know there are many others. If I do a search for "Support Indie Authors", I find some posts that use that hash tag, but likewise a click on those only finds my one post. Any ideas?

I don't have a favorite sports team, so I root for indie authors and artists instead...
Go team!

One activity you can explore when on an "Island Getaway" for +Artistic Google is all the Google Street Views that are underwater.  There is a page that lists all the GSV Ocean explorations: https://www.google.com/maps/views/streetview/oceans?gl=us
This view is from a dive off Isla Contoy in Mexico.
