Barbara ~> Novice's here too but the more we hang out, the better we become and the more we learn from each other and awesome people like Bill Gassett!! Great place to be for the juice!
Rainers who have not set up a profile on Google+ should feel right at home there now. ActiveRain has an ActiveRain community set up now on Google+. Log in and set up your profile with your ActiveRain photo and join all of the familiar faces.
We'll all learn to use Google+ together. I'm a novice, but it sure is easy to blend into Google+. Create your circles and add people to your circles. They'll in turn add you to theirs. +1 their posts and comment on their posts, just as you would here on ActiveRain. They will comment on yours.
Post your articles or blog posts and reblog or "share" articles of others. They love that and they will show their appreciation.
It's a fun place. Some of the photos are outrageously funny....almost "X" rated!!! Cracks me up!!!!
I'm glad to see more ActiveRainers on Google+. Do yourselves a favor and find Bill Gassett on Google+. Follow him... read all of his articles.... he's a real leader when it comes to online marketing and he "shares freely" on Google+. I'm all over those articles....I +1 them; comment on them and share them.
Learn about hashtags and so many other things that will help us gain more exposure and hopefully make our phones ring.
Check it out....
