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.
