|Matthew Trotter||0||Okay. I've been collecting shared #writer / #reader circles for the past week or so, and I thought I'd share our combined efforts. Of course, G+ only allows you to share 500 people at a time, so this isn't a complete list, but it's pretty substantial.I've had a blast talking to and getting to know all of you over this past week or so. I've laughed, learned, and loved—a lot. I hope this circle will provide you the same pleasure that it has provided me.And just because you don't see yourself doesn't mean you're not in my circle. Like I said, there's a 500 person sharing limit. Still, if there's any doubt, you can ask to be added. I'm more than happy to.Much writerly love and salud,MattP.S.

|Mike Elgan||838,797||First League graduate: +Tony Hawk!The purpose of my League of Extraordinary Circle Friends circle is to put you in touch with great people to circle, but people who have circle counts far below what they should be. My rule is that once a League member reaches the 100k-circles level, I take them out of the shared circle. People with that many followers will be easily discovered without being in my League circle. When I first circled Tony just a few short weeks ago, he had only a few thousand followers. But as he always does on a skateboard, he's soaring to new heights on Google+ at very high speeds. ; ) Congratulations, Tony!

I started this circle a few weeks back as a way to share posts aimed at helping those who write with little tips and tricks I pick up along the way (mostly from others). I'm sure I'm missing people off this list even among my own circles. I had to put it together based on what I already knew about someone and by looking at people's profiles, which no doubt varied in thoroughness over time, so please excuse me if I missed that writing is an important part of what you do - and let me know if it is!

Click "Add circle" inside the circle below to circle all my recommendations (highly recommended!). I limit my recommendations to people circled by fewer than 100k people. Once people reach 100k, I remove them from my recommendations -- not because I don't recommend them, but because they no longer need my weekly promotion. If you've added this circle in the past, go ahead and add it again. Google+ will ignore the people you've already got and add only the new ones. Where do I find these people? I sift through the profiles of people who make brilliant comments on my posts -- especially those who + my name. So if you want to be recommend by me every week until you're circled by 100k, here's how: 1. Have an awesome stream2. Comment on my posts3. + my name to draw my attention to your comments. * * * This week's Pleep o' the Week is +Mignon Fogarty, otherwise known as the notorious "Grammar Girl." I've been a huge fan of her awesome podcast for at least five years. She educates people about grammar and style and how to write both better and correctly. That's why I'm thrilled to discover that she's an active and prolific Google+ user!Fewer than 2,700 circles? Not on my watch! Everybody circle Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty!* * * I also do a streaming hangout each week Thursdays at 9am Pacific with some of the greatest people in specific subject areas.

British dialect coach Andrew Jack takes you on an amazing tour of the different accents you can hear on the British Isles. At first I was surprised by how many different sounds and pronunciations there are in such a small region, but I also recognized many of them from TV shows and movies I've seen. I watched it over and over and didn't want to stop!

"Conservatives long for a golden age, usually about 50 years in the past, when everyone knew their grammar and all was right with the world. 'What is more, even Grammar, the basis of all education, baffles the brains of the younger generation today ... There is not a single modern schoolboy who can compose verses or write a decent letter' – not Michael Gove, but William Langland (born 1332!). Sadly, there never was a golden age.

From the GeekDad blog: "The pet peeves and their corresponding effects are hilarious: 'Literally' is the most annoying card ever; 'Could Care Less' allows you to ignore an attack; the more 'Misused Apostrophe' cards you have, the more annoying each one becomes." http://geekdad.com/2014/02/grammar-girls-peeve-wars/

I'm thinking of doing a Google+ Hangout-type show in which I invite people to hangout and I answer their questions. Are there any good examples of someone already doing this that I can watch to see how it's done?
