Hey! I've got a bit of time on my hands...

...anyone want me to +1 them for a while?

I need a "test market".

  1. I don't quite understand how +1 works. Try it on my blog if it doesn't hurt!

    As I said on a previous comment; there's a spring protruding out of my computer chair and one pain is enough for now.

    God bless.

  2. +1 ing will probably give you a pain in the same place that the spring does :) From what I can see and from what I have gleaned from Puff it's a way of recommending sites and posts to others and it works in a similar manner to
    "liking" something on Facebook. I just tested it on Colleen's site and it worked. It works on yours too - I just +1'd your most recent post. It was hilarious!

  3. Very strange. I've just +1'd your post about Random thoughts on God; and the picture of my book "Visions" appeared there. I bet if you go and +1 it too then a picture of you will appear.

    Yepeee ... I have a new toy to play with!

    Somehow 2 people +1'd my post on Style Award on my blog. One was you. I wonder who the other one is. Then I +1'd myself to inflate my ego further.

    God bless.

  4. Yup! You +1'd me alright! How come I didn't get to see the picture of your book though? They must have to work out some kinks still.

    You mean we can +1 our own posts? Cool!!

    So are you saying you got +3'd? Lol!

  5. I +1'd my post on Style on my Blog. And so did you. But I have 3 +1s; so someone else must have done it.

    I +1'd your posts here. This one, and the previous one and the one about Ramdom thoughts on God. When I did so, I saw a little picture of my book Visions next to the +1 Blue button you have to press. But, this only happens when I'm logged in to Blogger. If I log off and visit you, all it shows is the number of people who +1'd you.

    Very confusing. But still fun. I'll +1 everyone I visit. This should gain me extra bonus points with St Peter when I get to meet him. I'll tell him I +1'd everyone and I'd offer to +1 him too if he lets me in.

    God bless.

  6. My family thinks I'm nuts because I'm laughing so hard at your comment! I think you +10'd me!!

    What a blast! I'm off to +20 you. I need bonus points with St. Peter too, you know. That comment almost made me fall off my chair...good one, Victor! The pearly gates will surely fly open when you stroll up!

  7. By the way, I went to Google and typed in Time for Reflections and
    +1'd your site itself. St Peter is loving me up there ;)

  8. Thanks Mary! This is funny! I still don't get how this all works. I am going to +1 you now!!

  9. So is this +1 stuff only open to Blogger users? This is the first I've heard of it.

  10. Colleen,
    You bet it's funny! Thanks for +1-ing me! Even if it doesn't work St Peter will still let you pass because your intention was to +1 ;)

  11. Barb,
    I'm not sure. I +1'd your site on Google but I couldn't do it from your site itself. I think it's open to everyone but has to be enabled maybe?

  12. Mary,
    I noticed this feature at the end of mine as well as other bloggers posts but never clicked it. I would have to agree it is more for boosting Google's ratings than anything else. I do like the other feature that Blogger provides where the icons to share a person's post either by e-mail Facebook, Twitter or Blog This appear at the end of a blogger's post.
    Love the comedy routine between you and Victor; I'd like to +1 them :)

  13. Thanx Mary for all your +1s.

    I think I'll go to Google and +1 them. That will confuse them that they've been +1'd.

    Then I'll go to the other ones ... you know, they call themselves ASK (Jeeves). And I'll ask them why is Google better. I wonder what they'll say. And I'll +1 them too to make them feel better.

    I was +1'd by a driver today when he overtook me and waved his hand in the air. It's catching on I think.

    God bless.

  14. Karin,
    I have no idea how the share feature got on my blog to be honest with you. Must have been during one of those "push random buttons and see what happens" sessions. This blog was built on those.
    Pay no mind to our +1 ing rampage, some of us are easily amused by new gadgets ;) Be on guard though, you just may be next on our list! Oh...right, I already attacked your blog yesterday :)

  15. Victor,
    Yes, I get +1'd a lot in the car too lately so it's definitely catching on :)

    You've got a great sense of humor, Victor! It leaves me non+ed sometimes ;)

  16. +1 shows up in google plus which, I guess you know, is the social network that Google is trying to use to compete with twitter/fb. I kind of like it myself bc there's so few people on it, it's not full of folks promoting themselves & ads etc. Just more like a few folks talking. And you can put people in different circles so that you're not telling folks at work all about your homelife etc :-)
