This is a quick and dirty update. You can now get a vanity URL for your G+ account (e.g., https://plus.google.com/+MelanieNelson). It’s easy. Just go to http://bit.ly/1f49MYC and get started. You’ll be done in less than five minutes, I’d guess.
That’s it. Nothing major; I just thought you’d want to know. By the way, this is the kind of stuff I always post on the BB101 Facebook page and our Blogging Basics 101 G+ page. If you haven’t Liked or Circled us yet, what are you waiting for? I’d love for you to join us over there. We have bacon.*
I don’t see a way to give your G+ business page a vanity URL yet, but I’ll let you know when I do. I received an email on November 1, 2013 telling me I could claim the vanity URL for BB101. The email had a link to click that took me to a page where I could claim it. If you claimed your G+ page url, please feel free to leave it in the comments below!
