Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721243

Carter Gibson628,961The Lifeblood of my Google+ ExperienceThe people in this circle (and I'm sure I've forgotten some of you!) are some of the most amazing people I've ever interacted with, online or off or both! I could not recommend this circle more highly. They're artists, bloggers, business owners, and the list goes on and on. Something they all share is that they are amazing people who I would do a favor for in a heartbeat. If you want to surround yourself with good people, this is an excellent circle to add. So, go on and circle up :)2012-11-30 21:16:131491251997

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 18:29:0010023218

Secret Santa PSA

The Elves and I have been working hard to keep up with all your lists, questions, comments, gifts sent and gifts received. Many thanks to all the Elves, +LaDonna Pride, +Lori Friedrich, +Kyla Myers  +Rae Ouzts, +Sean Cowen & +Susan Tournour and our website Elf, +Carmelyne Thompson for all the work they do.

I wanted to show you a quick graphic illustrating some features of our website: www.gplussanta.com

As you all know we have a lot of lists out there missing addresses which has been highly frustrating for many of you. As you can see there is now a quick way to identify lists with no address. We are only halfway through all the lists at the moment but we will continue to add highlight those lists.

If you see that icon on your list that indicates your address is missing or your link is broken, please take a moment to fix it andmess... more »

Secret Santa 2013 starts today!
Share this post so we can collect as many lists as possible!

HO HO HO! It's good to be back! Last year Secret Santa only lasted for less than a month and were able to collect over 2,500 lists! 1,500 more than 2011! Your generosity and compassion giving gifts to the Google+ community made holidays better last year. Today I'm happy to announce that my elves and I start collecting your Amazon wishlists into our master list. It's easy to create a list! The hardest part is deciding what to put on it ;)

Just follow these simple steps:
1) Create your public wishlist on Amazon: http://goo.gl/eUIwm
2) Add your list to the form: http://goo.gl/03TwI8 (Important instructions are on the form!)

Once added you can continue to edit your list. We'll share everyone's list with you on November 25th! We suggest... more »

Merry Christmas! #SantaGift  is trending!

Ho ho ho! Looks like you're all spreading the cheer this year, playing Secret Santa with each other. It's fantastic to see you all sharing your gifts with the hashtag #SantaGift !

Wow, you guys have really outdone yourselves this year. Check out the latest Elf Report from our Webmonkey Elf, +Carmelyne Thompson and then give yourselves a big pat on the back!

1139 folks received at least one gift from a Secret Santa!

Just a week till Christmas. Wow that was quick! Here's our ghetto way of getting the stats for +Secret Santa 

Gosh, it's embarrassing. I know. I make javascript count those who sent and those who received (take note: it has to be reported to the elves that you've sent and, if possible, if you've received) and spew it out on the console log. You know where to find it now in case you're interested in the stats too.___Wow, you guys have really outdone yourselves this year.

Today's Santa Picks are brought to you by +Mike Searle. Please read.

Help give Christmas to a family without a father

One week ago the Metro bus I was on struck and killed a pedestrian. Though I and other passengers rushed to the man's aid, he passed away. I don't think he was conscious following the accident, and it might be for the best as I really can't imagine his distress had he been aware. I stayed with him and I prayed for him till he was gone. His name was Charlie Turman, and he left behind three children and their mother.

I wrote about the experience (http://goo.gl/7RvkFG), and by chance or divine intervention, or whatever you want to call it - Charlie's family happened to see it and reach out to me. I've spoken with them a few times now, and while there is the expected grief, it is clear to me that their experience this Christmas has the potential to color their Holiday Season for the rest of their lives.

Passing on my Secret Santa

This year, instead of putting my own name on the Secret Santa list, I'm submitting the names of the members of Charlie's family. I humbly ask if you could find room in your heart to give some Holiday cheer to a family in desperate need of it. I've created four lists, one for each member of the family:

Ashton; Boy - Age 9: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/EST5BOH1LZRE
He was the hardest hit by the loss of his father. When I spoke to him he asked "Were you with him when my Daddy died?" He loves skateboarding and active sports.

Cameron; Girl - Age 11: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/3EU0XB7JBS8EZ
She feels the loss of her father in the way that only a daughter can miss her daddy. She asked me "Did Daddy say anything?", and I had to tell her that her daddy was unable to speak. She like dolls and makeup, and games for her Playstation 2.

Charlie; Boy - Age 14: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/1VP462GJC8SW3
He is the tough soldier, the only one who wouldn't speak to me. I'm sure he is trying to stay strong for the rest of his family. His mother tells me that he likes Professional Wrestling, and has a talent for Drawing.

Jeanette; Wife: http://www.amazon.com/registry/giftlist/214BUY4102J5I
She told me that they were best friends, and that Charlie's last words to her were "I love you, I'm on my way." She is currently taking night classes and is thinking of pursuing a career in criminal justice. However, right now she is just trying to take care of her kids, and cannot even afford the $330.00 cost to have have the victim's ashes released to the family so they can lay them to rest.

Give a hurting family some Holiday Joy

Only time will ease their broken hearts, and nothing will ever bring back this family's father. But maybe together we can bring them a smile. Maybe we can show them the meaning of "Goodwill toward men". 

I ask that you please consider a gift for this family. There are options on the lists for as low as $10. But even if you can't offer anything yourself, I politely ask that you share this post so that we can make as many people aware as possible. If you would like to contribute something that is not on the lists, please reach out to me privately to discuss it or for contact info.

Thank you for your generosity, and Happy Holidays!

I don't normally ask for help, from anyone, but this year is different with a job loss (my wife's), a raise in house payment yet lowered hours allowed at my job.

And on top of it, our oldest daughter is finally at the age where she knows what she wants and what the other kids have. It's tough right now, but I couldn't be happier with my crazy life.

As in the past, Santa and his elves enjoy highlighting people that:

1. Are a positive, engaging influence on Google+
2. Have a need that cannot be currently met with the unemployment, layoffs, and no assistance from the government.
3. Contribute to individuals without regard to their own needs

Santa feels these folks are worthy of your consideration:

We have over 1,600 wishlists!
Browse and gift to people here: http://goo.gl/RRZjhf

Ho ho ho! I think it's safe to say that the elves and I are having the most successful Secret Santa yet! With our 2013 announcement being our most shared yet (543 shares!) and over half the amount of TOTAL wishlists we had last year, it's clear that you're all in the giving the spirit. Keep it going!

And that's a good thing! I'm getting my sleigh bells shined for Christmas and am enjoying warming up for my big day by watching you all send each other gifts. It truly is the most magical time of the year. #SecretSanta

It's #GivingTuesday ! Spread some joy.
Browse all the wishlists here: http://goo.gl/RRZjhf

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday exists to remind us all to be more selfless and look after each other. On Giving Tuesday, nonprofits aren't the only ones in need. Giving to an individual could be the most important contribution you make all year.

You've all submitted over 907 wishlists so far this year (it's only the 3rd!) and everyone deserves something for Christmas. Take the time on this Giving Tuesday to give a little something special to a friend, stranger, or follower. Show someone you care. It could mean more than you think.

Elf +Lori Friedrich has kindly created a more detailed example of how to set your address on your wishlist.

How to edit your ship-to address on your +Secret Santa wishlist

One thing people forget about when making their wish lists is to add a ship-to address. Even if you are a regular Amazon.com customer, you still need to stop by those settings and tell them where you want your gifts delivered.

Here is an easy 3 step "How-to" guide.

Step 1: Go to Amazon.com and bring up your wish list. On the right hand side, you will see an option called List Actions Click it :-)

Step 2: From the drop down, choose Edit List Profile

Step 3: On the next screen, scroll down to Ship-to Address You can choose to either use an address from your address book or enter a new address. Don't forget to check the box for third-party item shipping if you have chosen to add things to your wish list from outside sources.

Bonus - if you want your gifts to be a surprise - make sure to check the "Don't spoil my surprises" box!___Elf +Lori Friedrich has kindly created a more detailed example of how to set your address on your wishlist.

Yawwwnnnn! Looks like it's almost time to start working again...

Ho ho ho! The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice lattes are back in coffee shops, and I can sense that people are already starting to think about their Christmas lists. Yup. It looks like me, #SecretSanta , and the elves are gearing back to bring you joy, love, and gifts in 2013 for a 3rd year! Can you believe it? More to come... :)

Santa's picks for today!

View all of the wish lists here: http://goo.gl/FH8Oi
or visit the old spreadsheet here: http://goo.gl/TvD3F

Now until #Christmas  we'll be highlighting certain lists based on the reason why Secret Santa is important to you this holiday season and your support of Secret Santa. My elves and I will be sharing lists consistently from here until the end of the holidays so show the people below some love!

+Lucas Appelmann  just had a new baby born, so we know funds will be tight for this dad. It sounds like he's had a bit of a rough year, so Santa thinks a little Christmas cheer would do him and his family some good!

------------------------
+Astrid MJ. Houchin tries to be a Warrior Mom for her two boys every single day, and she has had an amazingly rough year (one of the elves knows her and her story quite well). Your heart will be warmed knowing that this selfless mom can have a little joy back in her life. She deserves that!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2QFQOC2N8RWYV
------------------------
+Reverend Eric Ha wants to get some gifts to help those around him, and looking at some of the cookbooks, it sounds like he'll be on KP Duty for a while. Santa approves of anyone wanting to help others!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/1QC2PK7I2QWI3
------------------------
+Carissa Braun doesn't need anything personally, but says that animals in rehab and those living in a sanctuary are always in need. Her list tells you exactly the kind of heart she has, and Santa belives she is most generous!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3V4UOSAAO1ZP3
------------------------
+Melissa Solito is looking for some wooden toys for her two daughters and a few things for herself and her husband, and it sounds like a little Christmas joy would be nice for this giving person!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/wishlist/2RG1BD6F3TMHH
------------------------
+Michael Huber is recently single, and Santa suspects some holiday cheer will help him start to mend his broken heart. Let's send a little Christmas magic his way and who knows? He just might meet a new someone wonderful (sorry Cupid, if we're stepping into your territory)! :-)
