Welcome back! This is the 4th series in an (expected) unlimited blog series where we highlight the “Best of Google Plus“. The best of Google Plus highlights the best content that has been shared to Google Plus throughout the past week (we publish a weekly blog series).
There’s so many awesome articles that are submitted to Google+ each week, that they’re all so very hard to pick from.
In the previous 3 series, I’ve been experimenting with using Google Plus embeds, links or videos.
In this series I will start using links only, unless there’s a call for an embed.
In this series I’ll also start to limit the overall number of posts that’ll be allowed to make it into “The Best of Google Plus” blog series. From here on out “the best of Google+” will highlight only 25 posts that have been shared to Google+ within that previous week.

This will make things more easy for me, more easily to read for you and will make the Best of Google Plus blog series more competitive in nature. By limiting the overall number of posts that will be allowed to win “Best of Google Plus“, this will make blog authors work harder to get their content published in this blog series.
Giving all bloggers something to work toward in 2014 and beyond.
It took a couple of these “Best of Google Plus” series for me to pin everything down, but I suppose it’ll take even longer for me to get everything perfect and just the way they should be. So, please bare with me. Your feedback would help. (hint! hint!) :)
