Google+ and Writers

It may not seem like it, but just like any other author, I have a life outside of writing. I have a day job; I have friends and family; I have hobbies; I’m involved in my church and community; I attend my daughter’s school events, dramas, and recitals. I’m just like you or anyone else.

The problem is that also like any other author, I have this whole public side that I try to keep separate.  I have both private and public emails; I have private and public facebook accounts; I maintain two blogs – this one and another that is private for a group of friends. And like anyone who does all this, it can get tough keeping up with it all.

Enter Google+

I recently joined Google+ and I got to say I really like it. It feels like facebook, but it has a distinction that may make my life and the lives of everyone a bit easier.  Unlike facebook where one post goes out to all your friends, in Google+ you can segregate your friends into “circles” and make different posts to different circles, unseen by the rest.

I’m still looking into it, but I’m thinking that I can easily manage personal and public with one Google+ account. I can post to everyone regarding my writing endeavors and then focus in to just family and close friends for more personal matters.

I recommend giving it a try, and when you do, please look me up!
