I have a couple of Blogger blogs and a G+ profile.  I would like my posts to propagate automatically to my G+ posts stream (which is basically why I signed up for Google+ in the first place).

https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JenniferTziviaMacLeod/posts

 

But they are not.

Here are the blogs, in case you can figure anything out from looking at them.

Google Plus seems to be set up properly, in terms of authorship of the blogs, etc.  If you google my name ("Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod"), you get results from my blog posts with the right headshot, taken from my G+ profile.

 

I have, naturally, checked the "Automatically share" checkbox.

Any other suggestions?

Happy to add anyone to my circles if it helps you figure it out...

 

Thanks!!

Hi Jennifer, Your blogs are really good.

 

Are you set as 'Blogger Profile' in the settings or are you Blogging as 'Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod'?

Hi, Sam!  (and thanks for buttering me up... :-) )

 

When I decided I wanted the posts to show up on Google Plus, I upgraded from my old Blogger Profile to Google Plus.  So it should be blogging as me.  I think that's why it says (see screenshot) "This blog is associated with your personal Google+ profile."

 

I'm hoping somebody who blogs and knows the ins and outs can take a look at my screenshot and see how it looks relative to theirs... or something.  :-/

Hmm... I know there's an option of setting up a NEW g+ page, but didn't think it was necessary.

I mean, it says explicitly that it is associated with my PERSONAL g+ profile.  Shouldn't my posts be showing up there if it is???  I don't want to create a g+ page if I don't have to.  Because it STILL wouldn't show up on my personal stream, which is the problem I'm trying to solve.

 

I know people who do it; I know it's possible. :-/

If you change the setting to 'prompt to share after posting'  does it give you more than one profile to share?

Nope!  Does yours?  I did create a page, but haven't run a test post to see if that goes through.  And anyway, I really don't want a page if I don't have to have one.  My friend's blog does it automatically, but when I asked her how she did it, she had no idea...

Okay, did a test post with "prompt to share" and it came through on my g+ page.

Wait a minute... do I have to post through their stupid blogger interface for my posts to appear automatically???

 

You never asked me how I was posting.  I use Windows Live Writer.  Would that make a difference?

???

Okay, scratch that.  Posted from the Blogger interface again, this time with "Automatically share" checked.  And it didn't appear on my g+ profile.

 

So that's not the problem, obviously.

 

Oh, hey, while we're at it, why the heck are my thumbnails not showing up, no matter what size image I put at the top?  I'd like  to use og:image but can't find an elegant way that blogger will let me do this.

 

You know... while I'm dumping all the problems that have been driving me crazy.

Heading to bed; kind of late here.  Will check back in tomorrow.

 

THANKS!

Sorry Jennifer, I blog through the blogger interface and it has always on to my G+. I have never used Windows Live Writer

 

You also have at the bottom of your image 'You can also link your blog to a Google+page' which suggests there not linked, if you click on the link does it take you to a set up to link the accounts?

 

Thats Ok

Okay, so that is the answer...  It only propagates automatically to g+ IF you post through the Blogger interface.  What a simple answer, in the end.  Blah.

 

So never mind.  I will find something else.  Maybe networkedblogs can do it?

 

I appreciate your help; any insight into the thumbnails problem? :-)
