But fret not, there's a new sheriff in town
It has been almost 3 years (wow!) since the announcement of Google+Blog for WordPress and the uptake was much more than I ever expected it to be. Thousands of people explored the concept of using their Google+ content as a way to spice up their blogs, to keep their own off-site version of their posts, or to simply share content with those that aren't on G+. Given the ease of creating long form, media rich posts, who wouldn't want to use G+ as their content management platform?
But as software is updated over time it can get a little clunky and less efficient. I was never happy about the requirement of an API key and there have been many requests for more flexible templating. So with the plugin begging for a major update it has received one, as well as a rebranding. [Existing supporters receive a free upgrade, check your email or message me]
