Featured G+’er : Marsha Leigh
How did you originally get invited to Google+?
An active social blogger I know on Facebook invited me.
What benefits are you seeing from being in Google+?
I am experiencing a huge increase in activity versus other social sites right now. Google+ users have taken the time to create search directories to view profiles by subject and I have met many creative and talented folks to interact with in just a short time. I have been reading quality content as well as participating in great conversation and enjoy viewing art, photos, videos, blogs all in one stream. This has made being active here very satisfying on a daily basis.}
How does Google+ fit into your life or career?
I have many interests as a hobbyist so I’m all over the map. I love Google+ circles because of my varied interests. Comparing using lists on Twitter and Facebook, circles make people organizing easier.
A particularly interesting story or thoughts you may want to add regarding Google+
I have been very active on Twitter for years and have followed many people in fields that I admire. Most of these people have follower counts so big they rarely interact with me as just another random person that after a while of trying the conversation is mostly “one way”. In just 2 days of actively engaging with folks on Google+, I had a response back personally to me from someone who has thousands following him. This was about as exciting as it gets.

I am a published free-lance memoir writer when I have time, love digital art and photography, experienced Photoshop user, write two blogs, active in social-networking. I’m a tech person addicted to my phone and tablet. I also love and write about film.
