Google+ is Dead! Long Live Google+ !

     So in case you hadn't heard, Google has announced the shutdown of Google+ in August of next year.  That is still a good ways off but the migration is already underway.  I have been a heavy user (well, lurker mostly) of Google+ over the last two years or so and generally enjoyed it.   Most, if not all, of the people and groups I follow there are either moving already or looking around to move soon. The most talked about alternatives as far as I've seen are MeWe, Facebook, and Discord.  I totally don't trust Facebook, and Discord looks more like it's for live gaming, but MeWe seems promising. FYI, my MeWe personal link is www.mewe.com/i/edward.wilson6

    For now I'm going back to normal blogging, which suits me better than microblogging apps anyway.  My main need is an outlet to create content for myself and the gaming community.  Micro-blogging is so minimal it's almost a waste of time.
