Gene Bowker41,161Something Different for SaturdayI have to admit that my G+ experience is pretty photo-centric.However, I've also met a bunch of people (and pages) who I enjoy for different reasons but that have not been in my StreamCircle shares.This circle includes some folks who bring a smile to my face, something new to think about, great art, or just good information.  It also includes some pages that I follow including +NASA +Google etc...I hope you will check out these folks and pages and see if they have a home in your circles too.Feel free to share.2012-09-22 14:21:38570410CC G+

Kyle Beck0So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

Alister Macintyre7,115Some people appear to be well informed on many topics, and like to share what they have figured out.  Here is a circle of prolific writers about tech topics.  You might want to put some of them in separate circles, to avoid being washed away in combination streams into a roaring torrent of information.2012-06-09 23:29:01244010CC G+

Type, voice chat or webcam (please do at least one) and join in the fun conversations. This is by far my largest Circle on G+. I joined G+ Jun 29th. I hung out then and pretty much most days since. Some even call me Hangout Queen :)I've seen amazing things in hangouts, Tours of far away countries, Cooking classes, airplane trips, photowalks, concerts, language lessons, trivia night, relationship advice, seeing famous landmarks, attending behind the scenes of tv shows, hangouts with famous celebrities, and countless late night and early morning hangouts with fabulous normal people from all parts of the world and right next door... Tv shows have nothing on this. Countless experiences all without leaving my living room.If you are new and just starting out on G+, ADD THIS CIRCLE and join a hangout. These people have all personally hungout with me. They are the regular and few time hangout crew. Join us.Mobile link to Circle: https://plus.google.com/107982618909749811163/posts/cpJPaNGuHXV #googlehangout #hangout2012-04-17 00:13:3750012043129CC G+

Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware.

Cara Schulz1,861For #FollowFriday I've put together my Real Foodies circle. Let me explain it before you add it. It is a list of 43 people who share or write original food content. This was originally a HUGE shared circle of 380 people, most of whom liked reading about food, but never shared or created food content themselves. I went through and looked at every person's posts and made sure they are still active on G+ and posting about food. Total pain in the ass, but it had to be done because that foodie list was worthless and I never used it. Now, I am happy with this circle and it is something I check out every day.If you add this circle, you'll see things like canning, food survivalist info, nutrition - not just food porn and recipes (although recipes and food porn are the majority). Most of the people write about food in the majority of their posts, a few I've included have the occasional food post, but what they share is awesome enough not to be missed. Hidden gems.If you know of someone who posts about food or beverage that isn't on this list and should be, post in the comments. I've added myself to this circle, but be aware I'm one of those who share the occasional recipe and post on food related topics, too. So you may, or may not, want to remove me if you add this circle.2012-01-27 15:50:1243507CC G+
Peter G McDermott28,149Nobody Wants to Hangout with Me!I guarantee after you add this circle, you'll always see someone online to hangout with. They're from around the world and use this network like nothing you've ever seen!It's almost 3am and the stream is slowing down. I'm heading to bed, but if you want to find a bunch of people to use the Hangout feature with, add this to your circles! These are all people I have hung out with at one point in time or continue to hang out with on a regular basis. They're all friendly and will help you get your feet wet! If you like it, be sure to share it!2012-01-22 08:56:1427026617CC G+

I used to do the Sunday Confessional as a way to help remind everyone that no one’s life is television perfect. To remind you and myself that what we see on Facebook or wherever  is just a snapshot and not the whole picture. To remind myself that we are often comparing our worst with another person’s best.
Life is hard.
Death is harder. . .

G+ The Other Red Button

Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking in front of almost a hundred blogggers in Atlanta. +Heather Solos invited me to share my know-how on Google+ and how to get started. Due to technical difficulties (read: because I forgot to check if I had a VGA port on my laptop), I was unable to share the full presentation with the #typeacon  audience.

In order to give you more than just the slides from my presentation, I created a very thorough breakdown of the core concepts that were discussed yesterday. Please feel free to check them out and let me know what questions or feedback you have: http://goo.gl/lKQ5PE

Of all the things I have ever shared here, this is the most important, by far. There are 18k people who have me in circles. Let's see if we can't stop my family's pain from being another's. Please pass this along #teamlaura

If you are an organ donor, please sit down with your family and have a frank discussion. Save your loved ones from potentially having our experience. In the end she was able to be a tissue donor, but the decisions made were excruciating.

Holy cow, after a year or so of procrastination I may have finally gotten WPTouch and W3TC to play nicely enough that my site is both loading quickly AND showing the mobile friendly version for most, not all, mobile devices. What a pain in the butt. #wordpress (Many outside factors played into it, well beyond the technical)

WordPress users should be aware that not every plugin is as innocuous as it may seem at first glance. At the day job (Community Manager +FeedBlitz ) I ran into a case where a deal blogger was using a plugin to curate deals. While I can't say what the intention of the plugin creator was, the net result was massive amounts of hidden content injected into the blogger's feed. Search engines would not view this favorably and probably won't care about the intent.

On reflection, none of my sins have been Original.

Mostly covers. Those that weren't, were highly derivative.

I have been going through a lot of changes lately. The past couple of years have been a lot of work and effort toward a goal. Perhaps one of the most satisfying things about finally achieving that personal goal is finally having the time and mental bandwidth to address the little things that were neglected in that time.
It doesn't sound like much, but being able to sit down and finally get a code snippet to display the chore chart where and how I wanted it to on my site (Home-Ec101.com) is immensely satisfying. The internalization that it won't be the last thing crossed off that list is even better.

So, a couple of hours ago I posted about a site that was scraping and syndicating my content through iframes. I found a partial solution to the situation in a google group, which I link to in that post. It turns out I had a full solution because of previous issue with a plugin. The combination of the 3 code snippets will help website owners maintain control of their content, even if this PR 9 site is outranking you on the SERPs. So yay for that. (Original post here: https://plus.google.com/111585581956730395692/posts/i999P4ohLKs )

I began looking at my other favorite content creators and found many of them have the same issue I did. (that's why I published the solution) 

However, things got really interesting when +Lisa Frame started looking at the site doing the scraping FeedReader . com. It seems they are held by Marsfeld Trading, Ltd. and have an estimated daily traffic ofov... more »

So this morning, doing a quick search for a post I'd written on my site I found a PR 9 page doing some fun iframe stealing....

With a quick bit of research I found a simple fix for you.  H/T https://productforums.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/webmasters/TTZXJJdDgNw

Place the following code in the <head> </head> portion of your template:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
if (window!= top) top.location.href = location.href;

And this code in your .htaccess file

OR hire someone to do it for you, pronto.

These code snippets will ensure someone will be sent to your site even if they click on a link where feedreader . com (or any iframe stealing site) is listed rather than your own.

Okay and with that out of the way, let's get back to food.

I like food. 

Thanksgiving is coming up and this year the recipes will have a bit of an Italian-American twist to them (next week I'm sharing a risotto), but to get there we have to start with stock. What's better than plain turkey stock? Stock made from roast turkey necks or wings.

+Colin Walker , +Paul Reynolds , and +Michael Carnell  are frigging awesome.  Thanks to Colin for giving me the code to get the real url of the page, thanks to Paul for giving me this code which would work in most wordpress sites: http://pastebin.com/TL5qJ2kx   I run my wordpress site with Thesis, so I just created a function that looks like this:

/*stupid canonical stuff */
function canonical() {
  $request = 'http://'.$_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
  $chunks = parse_url($request);  
  if (strlen($chunks['query']) > 0) echo '<link rel="canonical" href="'.get_permalink().'"/>';
add_action('wp_head', 'canonical');
/*end stupid canonical stuff */

As a successful* blogger I get asked a lot of, "Can I pick your brain, I want to start my own" kind of questions. My good friend +Melanie Nelson created  http://www.bloggingbasics101.com/ a few years ago and that's where I point people rather than getting involved in hours of email exchanges that generally have me repeating the same info. Maybe you'll find it useful for the same thing.

So why do sites like woot.com run their affiliate programs through cj.com? Why not through Amazon? I've had great experience w/ Amazon and a hard time doing much at all through what I find to be a very time consuming process w/ cj.com. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong? (Quite possibly)
