Add a Google+ Widget to Your Blog

There are other types of widgets for Google+, but I chose this particular one because I wanted the option of the live feed.   Widgets Plus offers a quick and simple way to create your personal Add Me on Google+ widget!

If you do not want to include the update feed on your widget, just uncheck the box.  You can also change any of the settings by clicking on Main area settings, Title settings, Name text, Button and Bottom text too. This will give you the option to change colors and text size.

Let me know how you liked this widget.  Was it simple to create? If you have any other questions let me know!

    Oh my goodness Lisa, you are quite amazing! I found you a few weeks ago through voicebox and LOVE the stand alone widget on the left side here, so I put that on my blog and love it! Now, I HAVE to do this Google + widget!

    You are my newest blogger-tech guru and I'll be back as often as I can. :) Great to see you on "Members to Remember" with vb this week.

    I'm not sure exactly what I was consumed with, but I missed out on Google+ on this go around. For the first time since this epiphany I don't feel like a complete dolt because I can actually see (through the comments here) that there are others on this planet that are also not in the loop (or should I say "circle"?)!

    I am a Google girl, so I am sure I will be adding the plus to my social media madness when possible. This widget looks pretty sweet, so I'll be back!

    Also, I think I tweeted this to you earlier tonight, but in case I did not ~ I love your blog's title!!

    Honestly…….I'm on Google+ (friend invited me) but I dont' understand it hahaha Not unusual I get in over my head all the time trying to stay up with the networking but I get totally lost =/

    Since I'm not sure how to use it not sure if I should do the widget now or wait…hmm will have to think on that but thanks for all the info. I also like the way the tweet and stuff is off to the side hear(floating) I see so many cool things…

    You know one of the things I like too is the tool bar thing that pops up at the bottom of some of the blogs so cool! One day maybe =)

    I also see that Google Buzz??! Yeah think I have that too but don't know how to use it either =/

    Anyway congrats on Members to Remember =)

    I really love your blog background as well! =)

    Have a great night, now that I wrote a book(sorry =/) =)
