It's been at least six months since I have been able to see any of the plusses on other people's posts. I can see them if I use The Whacko Blogs or The Health Whacko, but I can't see anything on my G+ feed as Jeremy Crow. Diligently I still go through my feeds everyday, read, plus, comment, and the last few weeks people have been questioning me as it appears that G+ tells them I plussed and they can't find it, and in the picture above, as of yesterday my blogs no longer collect their plusses.
At first I figured it was something I did, and I learned many years ago to stop acting like the world is out to get me. It's boring and it doesn't get your blogs read, but then again there comes a time when you have to admit something is out to get you. The last several weeks I have spent more time just trying to get my feed to load, and less time writing, or doing anything else. It just sucks, imagine having your shares to G+ look like this ...
I'll be around, but I have a real world to catch up on ...
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
