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 00:47:03249731342CC G+

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.

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+

Ho Ho Ho! One of Santa's naughty little Elves is having a Birthday today and I caught them in the act of celebrating. Such slackers. I do hope they saved me some milk and cookies!

Happy Birthday, Elf +Rae Ouzts. Don't tell the others, but you're one of my favourites. Shhhh

A very kind and generous person has offered up this new Nexus 7 2013 blue tooth case/keyboard/stand to someone who wants it.  (USA only)

Anyone who has a Nexus 7 2013 (it will only fit the 2013 model!) and would like this case.  Please comment on the ORIGINAL POST!  (please do not comment on re-shares! those will not be counted) All names will be entered into a spreadsheet and a random number generator will pick who gets this gift from Secret Santa.

We will accept names up to 8am Eastern on Tuesday (12/24/13) and a winner will be drawn and announced about noon. (gives me time to enter everybody in the spreadsheet) The winner will then need to give their actual mailing address to us so this kind person can ship it!

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 ! If you haven't shared yours yet, now would be a good time. Christmas is almost here and the elves and I couldn't be happier about the great work you've put into G+'s Secret Santa for its third year. We love you all.

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.

Gift to your choice of over 1,400 wishlists here! http://goo.gl/RRZjhf

Secret Santa is a roaring success again this year! And it's all thanks to you guys. But it's also thanks to the amazing elves that help me put this on every year. They're going to hate me for this, but I want to share their wishlists with you all. They really deserve some love this year as I've been traveling and working my butt off. +Secret Santa would NOT happen without them.

Just 10 days until Christmas! Oh my how the time flies!

There is still plenty of time to send a Secret Santa gift though and here are a few people for you to consider:

+Joby Remigio finds her Christmas spirits flagging and well, we just can't have that now, can we?

Like all good moms, +Angie Creasy-Thompson just wants to provide the best Christmas she can for her kids. She has a 10 year old and a 14 year old and would appreciate any help she can get this year.
Wishlist: http://amzn.com/w/2AHFC3A2YU7WV

+Adam Cowdrey lost a son this year and his son's twin spent most of the year in the hospital. It's been a heartbreaking year and needless to say his family has been pushed to their limits. Any love sent their way would be a bright spot for them.

Santa is seriously having a difficult time choosing who to share!  There are so many people who have yet to receive any gifts this year!

(and Santa wanted to share several people who did not have shipping addresses attached to their lists!!!!!!!)  There is a lot of good information in this post to help you discover if you're one of those people:

+Steffany Hosmer This year has been very tough financially, we both lost our jobs during the birth of our daughter this past September my husband missed too much work trying to help me recover from my C-section, I just started working but they pay monthly and I won't get a check until December 26th ironically. In the end I appreciate anything done for my family but either way I am blessed with a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children. W... more »

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.

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:

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.

Now that you've sent out a gift, please let the Elves know so you can earn your little Santa cap on the website. The elves would also like to know who you sent your gift to. You can find the Elf Circle here:

Christmas is all about friends, family, love, and - of course - #SantaGift  show someone that you care about them. That you love them. That you appreciate them. They're thank you's, I love you's, and I'm think of you's. So think of what gifts are important to you?

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.
