To make it easy for new woodworkers joining Google+, I have started writing a series. You will find my most recent article below. It is my latest installment on The Bloggers at g+. Please note the use of hash tags on the header; in a manner similar to Twitter, these are used to make it easier to search in the future on the words identified my the hash marks. Also, in g+ the convention is that a person’s name preceded by the “plus” sign automatically links to that person’s Profile; however, the links in the boxes containing the person’s name is disabled. You will be able to click them in the original article on g+.
I hope you will find the time to join Google+. It is something new; it is growing daily; and it IS different from any other social network created in the past. If you would to receive an invitation to join, please let me know. As it is still in Beta test mode, an invitation to join is required.

You will find Part 2 of The Bloggers series at https://plus.google.com/109172813571934524948/posts/cNtuLQ6qVrB
I include the following reminders for the benefit of members who recently joined Google+:
*If you are just starting on Google+:* Be sure to visit the Woodworker List, at http://www.group.as/woodworker/, to see who are the woodworkers in Google+ as of today. If you are a woodworker, and you wish to have your name on the list, enter your Google+ ID in the space above the list.
*Reminder:* I am going through my Woodworking Circle alphabetically. If I missed anyone, I apologize ahead of time. It will take several Parts to complete the list of Bloggers. If I don’t have you in my Woodworker Circle, I will likely miss you if you are a blogger. PLEASE, let me know.
