Community test

Just a test to see if a post will go to a specific Community.

It worked!

OK, so it worked! The first post went straight to My Google+ Profile. There is an option to associate a blog with either your G+ Profile, or a G+ Page (Google+ allows businesses, entrepreneurs and social media types to have Pages for promotion, marketing and whatnot. Much like facebook Pages in purpose, this enables people to expand their reach, and target specific audiences.

This blog will not be associated with a Page, but it is nice that the function is there for other projects I have.

It's aliiiiive!!!!!

If you are an old subscriber to this blog, either by feed or by email, you may be surprised to see a new post from this site after about 2 1/2 years of inactivity. Also, the name at the top is different. Hopefully, you'll see the notice about where the blog you might have expected to find actually is. (HINT: You can find Sober Catholic here!)

This blog is mainly experimental. I just changed the settings to integrate it with Google+, a new social, or "sharing" network started by Google. I joined Google+ during the Summer of 2011, and thoroughly enjoy it.

I have restarted and renamed this blog for sentimental reasons. It was my first blogging effort, and served me well for 3 and a half years before I went to a paid alternative. "Trudging Paulcoholic's Road" is also sentimental, it was the name of on-again-off-again blogging efforts of a "personal" nature. Those efforts are now undertaken at Paul Sofranko Dot Net and the aforementioned Sober Catholic.) It is also a name rooted in alcohol recovery, for I am an alcoholic of over 1 1/2 years of sobriety. In AA's basic text, known as the "Big Book," there is a line referring to the path of recovery, known as "Trudging the Road of Happy Destiny." And so I just altered it to my own personal tastes. "My" road of recovery, or online surfing, or Google+ posting. Whatever!

And so I am not sure what to do with this. I'll see how posts from here wind up on the "Plus," (the affectionate name G+ users have for Google+) and go from there.
