Advantages of Collections on Google Plus

Are you a Google Plusser? Why not? Didn't create an account because there were predictions that Google management was considering kicking the network to the curb? Yes.  There was a buzz about that.

Several years back when Google Plus social media network was still in test mode, I received an invitation via eMail to participate in the project. When the decision was made to open to the public, I was already on board and they even gave me a custom URL for my profile.  My G+ experience has been very pleasant, although there are probably loads of features I have not learned how to use.

One of the features I have learned to use is the Collections.



Google Plus Collections is Google's answer to Pinterest users. Pinterest boards are for you to arrange your interests in an orderly fashion.  G+ Collections help you arrange your G+ posts in an orderly manner.  Why would you need to do that?  Ever try to search for one of your posts or links that you shared into the stream from a few years back?


All my G-Plus activity goes back several years. Tried going to my profile posts stream and scrolling down. That didn't work. If you scroll down your profile page looking for old posts you will discover that the post stream only goes back so far. You say to yourself: “How can this be? Have my posts disappeared?” Of course not! This is Google we're talking about! If Facebook can share your memories with you from years gone by, then there had better be a way to search for and find your old Google Plus posts.

Found a way to do that. It wasn't exactly simple. But it was doable. It is not easy to explain the process, so I'll direct you to the post where I found the information which I saved for future reference in my G+ Collections created for my business page called Tips and Advice for Business (Work-at-Home, etc.):





So how does this all tie together? If you find your old Google Plus activity and move it to your Collections activity, for your profile or your business page, then later you can just go there and retrieve your old posts. As a test, moved an old post from 2012 to a collection on my profile. View here.

So! You can probably conclude that although G+ Collections are good for organizing your Plus activity, in my opinion, the primary advantage of maintaining Collections on Google Plus is that you can retrieve your activity history.

Side Note:
  • All of my G+ Collections are set to Public, so you if you want to look at how my collections are organized, you can view the content even if you are not a member of the network. Thoughts,Musings, Writings - My World is my collection which appears on my profile.  (In comparison, you have to have an account with Pinterest to view my various pinboards.  My profile shows 57 boards which includes group boards.  Home Business Works on Pinterest.)

Could Treasure Pen Be the New Facebook?

Have been freelance writing since 2011, and participating in online writing communities – slash – social networks similar to TreasurePen.com, but NOT!

Recently I published a short blurb at another writing site – DailyTwoCents.com about this site and titled it “Looking For the New Facebook”.

Here is the link, if interested:
Looking For the New Facebook?

It poses the question which was mentioned by an independent reviewer or blogger about the future of Treasure Pen.


  • Could it be? 
  • Do you think it is possible? 
  • Can TP become the new Facebook?

The answer is: "Yes."  "It could."

But dogged diligence and determination would be required.  They would have to burn the candle at both ends, so to speak. Don’t know if they fully realize this, but the management and staff at the T-Pen community are literally sitting on top of a gold mine! (O.o)

Wishing them success!!

Quick Tips and Tricks for Newbie Bloggers

Some say your blog is like your resume.  Some say your blog is like your diary.  Some say your blog can used to turn your hobby into income.  It's all true!  What your blog is or becomes is entirely up to you.  But practically speaking, even if you are just doing it for fun - why pass on the opportunity to earn extra income or pick up a little pocket change?  Rainy day funds always come in handy!!

Sharing my lessons learned over the years (and still learning). Hope this cuts down on the learning curve for others.

Most ‪‎Austin‬ residents have never been, but this is a true gem and must see experience.

Here are the Top 7 Things to See and Do at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.

LBJ Library

Officially declared myself an Austin-ite when we relocated here in 1998. In keeping with collecting and/or sharing ALL THINGS TEXAS, especially, information about Austin, the state capital, the above is just a little something that was posted by a cool page on Facebook. You can find lots of information about Austin at their website. Also, if you can write about Austin, make yourself available for a 6-month commitment and produce two high quality,  400+ word articles per month, then perhaps you can become a Contributing Blogger.  Opportunity is knocking!

Decided on What to Wear for Halloween?

Having trouble deciding on a costume to celebrate Halloween? Here's a fun exercise! Found image below shared via Facebook by 95.7 KJR, radio station that plays Seattle's Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s and home of Bob Rivers!  (Or former home of Mr. Rivers.  He retired about a month ago.)  This is so fun!!  It turns out I'm a Screaming Cheerleader, which is not that far from the real me! :)



It seems that I am married a Gruesome Vampire. (Nothing could be further from the truth.)



As for my sons and daughters? Apparently I've given birth to a:

  • Gruesome Superhero, Werewolf and Cavewoman;
  • Screaming Cheerleader (yes! I have a child born on my birthday);
  • Screaming Barbie;
  • Chilling Prom Queen and Ghost;
  • Dead Pirate and Dead Ghost (???);
  • Spooky Geek; and
  • Terrifying Clown.  (Halloween2016.  Clowns not allowed.)

Actually?  Out of all of these the Spooky Geek is spot on!
