Who Would Have Thought, Google Plus?


I have been on Google+ since its beta inception in November of 2011.  I have embraced social media and have the obligatory Facebook and twitter profiles too.  I have found that my Google+ social circle integrates so much more with my life.  I guess because I have jumped into the whole Google ecosystem.  Every picture I take is saved, every post is recorded and at random times Google will give me a gift of a generated video or picture from my feed which they call Auto Awesome.  I have realized there is no such thing as privacy within Social Media, so I just try to live my life in a way that I do not have to worry about it.  Friends on Google+ do not ask me to play games, add to their farm or forward a message if I am "really" their friend. If you have done that, it is okay ;-) I am still your friend. Google+ seems to be a little simpler. To be clear, I am not a sponsor or receiving any compensation from this post in any way.  Google+ just works for me.

Anyway, Google+ just added a new feature that tells you how many times your profile has been viewed.  I noticed today that mine over 500,000.  I never would have guessed it would have been that many.  I pray that all I have shared in all of my social media is reflective of how blessed I am by God's saving grace.  He has given me a family that love and support me and a calling that keeps me passionate for Him and others.  I am not perfect but I am in a process.  If you have stopped by to take a look at my life, I am honored.  If you were trying to cause malice, I am praying for you. If you are one of the many persons God has used to pour into my life, for you I am eternally grateful! 

God Bless,

James
