Google+ Something Else to Figure Out by Morgan Mandel

Well, now I've been roped into another site called Google+. Once again, I'm fumbling around, trying to figure out what to do. For one thing they want a gmail address. I had to get one, since I've been using my domain email address here at blogger.

So, I got that all set up with a new email address there of morgansplus@gmail.com, since I couldn't seem to get one with my own name. For all I know, maybe I got one before and forgot about it. I am on a lot of sites and have tons of usernames and passwords floating around.

In the process, somehow I changed my password for the domain email and couldn't remember where I put it, so I had to get a new one to post again. Now I think things are kind of in hand, though I have lots to learn about Google+, which seems a combination of Twitter, and Yahoo and a little Facebook thrown in. Anyway, when I figure more out, I can let you know.

In the meantime, if you have a gmail address and need an invite to Google+, or if you're already on there, drop me an email at morgansplus@gmail.com and we'll see if we can connect in one of the Circles over there. 

Always something new to figure out.

Morgan,

LOL I love your post title. I know exactly what you mean.

I'll drop you a line; I just signed up with Google+ also.

What I can't figure out is how to find the url address to my Google+ page.

I'm opting ouit of additional social networks. Facebook takes up enough time already. I fail to see the results in increased book sales which is why I started Facebook in the first place. I'm going back to writing for me.

I know what you mean by having too many user names and online sites. It gets confusing. I'm going to hold off on Google+ until I see if it takes off or not.

Oh I know what you mean! I'm registered on so many sites, have so many usernames/passwords, and get soooo many emails from them all. Trying to stay with the trends but there are sooooo many days I wish things were simpler again and there was just one place to connect online with everyone....

I'm ignoring Google+ until everyone else has figured it out.;)

I am on Google + too and not sure yet what the big draw is. Just another time suck in my already hectic life!

Too many passwords? I know what you mean. I have literally more than 200. So I put them all into a secure database and, of course, I password protected it.

Can anyone now tell me where I left my password?
