|Christina Trapolino||54,573||#CircleSunday November 18, 2012It's been several months since I last shared this Circle with you guys, but I'm really glad to be starting it up again. I have been taking your suggestions into consideration, but this week I'm sharing three people with you who have been on my radar for some time:---+Isabelle Fortin is someone I found through a neat hashtag event called #MovieMashupTuesday . The idea...well, you can find it by clicking on the hashtag. Some of the images they come up with make me laugh out loud... IRL. ;) Isabelle's stream is also just plain interesting -- she is a self-confessed foodie (and so am I), and one of the few people whose Instagram posts don't annoy me. I'm certain she'll add some quirky fun to your streams.I've been following +Ralph Roberts for quite some time -- he worked with NASA on the Apollo program (*dreamy sigh*), so you can take posts with titles such as "Does chocolate make you clever?" very seriously in his stream. Furthermore, ever since I got an iPad, I've found Ralph's posts to consistently liven up my feeds with beautiful images. If you're from Austin and you know who John Aielli is, you might understand why I freakin' love Ralph Roberts.Last but not least is +Chris Hoeller, who has been in my Circles for a very long time. His posts are sometimes a lot like reading a Twitter feed -- short and funny -- but he also makes incredibly thought-provoking posts about technology and social media. I suspect that if you enjoy my posts on the subject of communication, you'll like Chris a lot.---That's it for this week!

|Christina Trapolino||48,549||July 15, 2012 #CircleSunday It has been storming for almost a whole week in Austin! Those of us who remember the wicked drought from last year (I wasn't a resident then, but a visitor several times) are grateful beyond words for the lower temperatures and the higher water levels in the lakes. I am especially grateful for the storms because I can actually get more than 4 hours of sleep when it's raining.Stormy Sundays are probably the best thing ever (apart from brunch), and I've spent most of today browsing G+ and adding new folks to my 'potential Circle Sunday' list. Here are the pleeps I've chosen for this week:---+Lil Peck has a slight obsession with horses. I don't share that obsession (although I do like horses, and spent many summers as a little girl learning to ride them), but Lil Peck's Stream is just so dang interesting that I read it obsessively, anyway. My favorite content of hers is tech-related -- especially when it's Google+ related. Her latest post is an example of this (it's about how to make sure your Stream is drama-free): http://bit.ly/NvrXZV+Rachelle Doorley is an arts educator. She also publishes something called Tinkerlab, which is actually pretty fascinating even if you're not a DIYer. Speaking of DIY, my favorite part of Rachelle's profile is her suggestion of which Circles to add her to. She lists DIY twice! Whether it's intentional or not, I got a chuckle out of it because that's actually a fair analysis of her content: it's a lot of DIY/crafts stuff. That said, I keep her in my "awesome A-list" Circle because her posts are fresh and unique. Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/NJMquE+Jonathan Abbey is a testament to the power of the Nearby Stream. By that, I mean that I found him through the first version of the mobile app for G+ -- he was posting from near my location, and I added him on a whim. Several months later, and he's still on my read list! He posts a lot of political stuff (fair warning if you like Romney -- Johnathan's Stream is unforgiving), but he's not preachy. Talk about a rare find. Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/NqjhFk---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!||2012-07-16 01:21:39||117||18||1||25|
|Christina Trapolino||47,824||July 1, 2012 #CircleSunday In a few days, it'll be my one year anniversary on Google+, but the platform itself celebrated its birthday this past week. As a result, lots of people posted fantastic stories about their time here (check the #MyFirstPost hashtag to peruse the Stream of posts), and I made a lot of new friends. All three of my Circle Sunday recommendations below are a direct result of that. I hope they bring something fresh to your Streams, as they have mine. :)---+Mark Bruce is a regular #ScienceSunday contributor who came to me via a shared Circle this past week. If you're looking to beef up your science Circles, you can file Mark under awesome. He hails from Adelaide in South Australia, which is where I went to some university a few years back. It's a great, albeit quiet little town full of smart folks like Mark, IIRC. Extra cool points awarded due to his self-proclaimed enthusiasm for transhumanism. Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LJ9YLLI have never recommended a Page in my Circle Sundays, but that's changing this week. I stumbled across a Googler's new yoga page -- +Quantum Yoga -- during my Stream surfing this week and fell in love. I want to get into yoga, but I've had some trouble making time for it. +Brandon Seils' Page is helping me to increase my interest in the practice by highlighting its geeky side. Maybe my next step will be to find a good yoga Hangout! Check out the Page's latest post here: http://bit.ly/MNqKNf+Ivan Yudhi is more proof that commenting thoughtfully will get you noticed and Circled by people with common interests. I found Ivan while hopping around several I/O conversations. He posts a lot about sports as well as different smartphones and their creators (and other tech, in general). His profile indicates he's into photography, and while I don't see a lot of his photos in his Stream, I'm hoping he'll take some pictures soon and share them!

|Christina Trapolino||47,287||June 17, 2012 #CircleSunday Hello again, Google+!This month has been tremendous for me -- as I continue to search for cultural clues that prove my hypothesis that society is evolving its use of social media, I've learned a great deal about the relationship between brands and bloggers (or, as I like to call them, citizen journalists). More on this later in the week, when I share my takeaways from the Blog Her Food '12 conference in Seattle.For today, I'm very pleased to share these fine folks with y'all for Circle Sunday!---First up is +John Maguire, who is a clinical researcher at the University of Kansas. John livens up my Stream with fantastic posts about all sorts of topics (seriously, they range from sports to outer space), but my favorite thing about him comes from his profile: "Being green is [sic] doesn't have to reflect one's political status, rather learning how [to] better our way of living and sustaining a better place to live for future generations." Hear, hear! Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/MzMHzrI have well over 500 photographers in my Circles, and they are all super talented. They certainly remind me that my Instagram account is strictly amateur. Many of them have enormous followings, but some have been less exposed than others. Case in point? +Rainer Steinke is a street photographer whose taste and style are, in my opinion, spectacular. This is my favorite of his recent posts: http://bit.ly/MXbUkM+Kyle Sullivan is an exobiology major (bonus nerd points) whose posts are endlessly interesting. I like Kyle's Stream so much because he mixes NASA information with a quirky sense of humor (he initially caught my attention when I saw some re-shares of his #AwayTeamPorn posts -- y'all know how I feel about Star Trek).

|Christina Trapolino||46,899||June 3, 2012 #CircleSunday Hello again, Google+! I've been a very busy girl for the past couple of weeks, but I've still been surfing my Streams and looking out for great people to feature for Circle Sunday. Today, I'd like to share the latest three additions to my #CircleSunday Circle:---+David Garcia has been in my Circles for a long time, and I've been meaning to feature him for much of that time. His posts are uplifting and his message is something we can all relate to from time to time. David has a blog called, "Keep it up, David!" and it's about his battle with losing weight. He's doing a great job, which is nice to see, but what makes his approach really special is that he doesn't focus on weight all the time. Rather, he chooses to highlight great things to eat for their taste and nutritional value, which makes his content engaging for anyone -- trying to lose weight or not. Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/LrbDGU+Gunther Cox only has about 1,100 followers and I have no idea why he doesn't have way more than that, so I'm hoping this feature will help spread his content to a larger audience. Gunther posts about what is probably the coolest thing ever -- robots. He makes them and posts about them! Check out his latest post here: http://bit.ly/Le1mBLI'd like to let +Jonathan Chalker's profile speak for itself (boy, I love when people really take the time to fill that sucker out): "I am a proud first generation G+ user. In G+ I write articles about science, technology, music, design (web and product), philosophy, media, and customer service in the digital world. I also follow quite a few people, read most of their posts, and actively comment (yay, me)." He really is an interesting guy to follow!

|Christina Trapolino||44,279||April 8, 2012 #CircleSunday First of all, happy Easter (or Zombie Jesus Day, depending on your preference), everybody! Yesterday was my birthday, so I drove to Dallas to see some friends and am currently in recovery mode after having a large amount of celebratory champagne (shhh, please pass the Advil). Regardless, I'm happy to share three of my newest Circle Sunday recommendations with you all!---+Bud Gibson is a business professor who specializes in technology and online marketing. His Stream, however, is mostly filled with rather pretty photographs and interesting notes about social platforms. Check out one of his latest photographs here: http://bit.ly/Hq1v3J.+Melissa Bryan is a self-labeled "geeky gamer girl," and as a former gamer myself, I find her Stream to often feel like a kindred's. She's got a great sense of humor and her posts will add a nice dash of comedy to your Stream. Check out her latest, Easter-themed post here: http://bit.ly/Hq3iWt (it makes me giggle).I've been paying more attention to my Photography Circles lately, and +Jacob Dix has been posting some of the more unique photos I've seen in the past couple of weeks. He often posts photos with a #MobileOnly tag, which is not something I was previously familiar with. The effects, however, are really more interesting than I would have thought (obviously, I know nothing about photography!). Here is my favorite recent photo of his: http://bit.ly/IcQPRU.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!||2012-04-08 23:13:20||91||34||1||20|
|Christina Trapolino||43,425||March 25 - #CircleSunday I hope y'all had wonderful weekends. I spent mine with the Italian side of my family. We celebrated a very early Easter and ate plenty of Italian food, so I'm pretty worn out. Luckily, I've had most of today to rest. And it being Sunday means that it's time for me to share my picks for you to add to your Circles this week!---+Jason Salas is someone I've been following since my first week on Google+. He's a very sharp guy who posts at the most ridiculous times possible (well, for me -- but I live in Texas and he lives in Guam!) but always has something funny, fascinating, or insightful to say. The content he curates is usually of interest to me, but I think my favorite thing about him is that he's a Bob's Burgers fan. It takes a special kind of humor to like Bob's Burgers, and Mr. Salas shares it with me. Maybe you're into quirky comedy, too? You'll like Jason, then. Check out one of his latest posts here: http://bit.ly/GRgLGF.+Lizzy Miles caught my attention by making clever comments on some interesting discussions and I added her to my Probation Circle (if you don't know what that is, jog your memory here: http://bit.ly/uJNTzm). She's got a very interesting Stream full of well-curated content and a really robust profile, although I especially agree with this part: "Lizzy Miles changes her mind frequently about her career identity, but has always held true to her enthusiasm for written and oral storytelling." For a sample of what Lizzy has to offer, check out one of her latest posts here: http://bit.ly/H2YO75.+Jadey A-S Wilson has been in my Circles for a long time, and her posts have always been a welcome part of my Stream, even though she clearly refuses to fill out her profile (or make it public, I'm not sure which is the issue). ;) Her thoughts and commentary are usually a departure from the norm, which is what makes her a permanent resident in my "Recommended" Circle, which is publicly visible on my profile. Check out her latest post here: http://bit.ly/GRO4Ul.---That's it for this week! Please feel free to recommend yourself or others for a #CircleSunday feature by using the "Send an email" button on my profile or sending a tweet to @cmtrapolino-- make sure you include a link to the profile you're recommending, as some names are not unique.Happy Plussing, everyone!||2012-03-26 04:34:24||85||8||1||17|

I have personally engaged with everyone in this circle on numerous occasions and have enjoyed it very much.I believe in smaller circle shares so new friends are not overwhelmed. Everyone in this circle is being notified they are being shared.

|Suzy Jenkins||2,837||I thought it was about time I shared a circle. There are so many shared circles of the "A" list people and photographers plus even the people with high numbers of circlers so I thought it would be a good idea to share a circle of the people who aren't quite in these categories. The A's and B's circles are full anyway so you have more chance of being circled back by these lovely people and they post great content too. They are all lovely G+ people so check them out.||2012-01-02 15:58:11||185||4||3||2|
|Christina Trapolino||32,823||And now...the first #CircleSunday of 2012I'm thrilled that my first post of 2012 is a shared Circle filled with wonderfully talented and interesting people -- it seems in line with one of my resolutions for this year, which is to promote the good work of others in any way I can. Other resolutions and reflections will come later, but for now...I'm really happy to present the following three people for your Circling consideration.---+Mitch Wagner always has an interesting article to share, but it's his personal opinions and musings that I really watch out for and pay attention to. He's been a really fun and often thought provoking addition to my Circles and I'm sure he will be for you, also. Read his post about how he read before the Internet here: http://bit.ly/vu4G8w.+Richard Stephenson is someone I've followed for many weeks on Google+. He always has something interesting to post, and there is a wide variety of topics and forms of media in his Stream. You'll find everything from personal stories to shares about cars that recognize the shape of your backside (yeah, I was a little weirded out by that, too). Check out his share of Woody Guthrie's New Years Resolutions here: http://bit.ly/uwxGIm+Kristen Marhaver is a postdoctoral researcher and a coral biologist. I have had her in my Circles for a long time, and I'm always eager to see what she has to share. Unfortunately, she doesn't share as often as others...but her work is so interesting that I'm hoping this gentle nudge will persuade her to share more of her stunning photography and fascinating tidbits with us on Google+.

|Christina Trapolino||25,955||#CircleSunday is here!I think this is the first Sunday I've been at home to post a Circle Sunday in over a month, and nothing is slowing down. Soon, I'll be moving to #Austin, TX, where I'll be starting a new job and a new chapter in life. There are only 24 hours in a day, but lately I find myself wishing there were more hours, or that sleep was less necessary. It isn't, by the way. Sleep as much as you can.Still, #CircleSunday is an excuse for me to drown out the noise all around me, to slow down and really appreciate the things that go on in my Streams. This week, I want to introduce you to three people who have been particularly interesting for me. I hope they will inspire you, too.---How do you feel about fine art? If you're like me, you wish you knew more about it and that you had time to be exposed to more of it. If that sounds right, you'll really like +Portrait Artist Enzie Shahmiri. She shares fine art from all over, and she even labels her posts so that you know who the artist is and how it was painted. She's also an artist herself, of course, and her own art is often very impressive, although I suspect it would be more impressive in person. Enzie really makes my Stream feel a little more classy, by the way. See if she doesn't add a bit of the finer side to yours! Check out her latest share here: http://bit.ly/vUi5Kk+Timothy Lake describes himself as a "common sense existentialist with authority issues," which is enough to entice on its own, but his posts really follow through. He often shares things that I wouldn't have likely seen otherwise, like this awesome #TEDTalk on how to spot liars (http://bit.ly/t6qgzi), but his own content is always very interesting, too. Timothy likes to examine the world around him and when he writes, it's obvious that his feelings are sincere and his observations are completely authentic, which makes the text engaging. He also has a really quirky sense of humor. See for yourself!+Mikael sh is Swedish, devilishly handsome, and has a reasonable following already (over 7,000!) -- but his posts are just so interesting that I think anyone who hasn't stumbled across him yet should have a look. The post I'm linking is tagged as #SentimentalSunday (http://bit.ly/tsmSrk), but Mikael openly admits that his share isn't even personally sentimental to him. I like that he participates honestly. He's a mixed bag -- you'll find posts about everything from science to martial arts in his Stream, so he's tough to categorize. But like others who fit that bill, I think it's a plus!---That's it for this week! Please feel free to suggest folks for a #CircleSunday feature. Please note, however, that the "Send a message" link in my profile is not the best way to go about doing so. I know at least three people sent me recommendations that way this past week and I just couldn't find the posts again after seeing them once, so please use the "Send an email" link or tweet at me if that strikes your fancy (@cmtrapolino). That way I won't have to dig for the recommendation later!H||2011-11-14 00:08:06||49||29||6||20|
