Google+ shutting down. Time to start a blog

Someone sitting on the floor with a laptop

Google has posted it will phase out Google+ to consumers after they exposed the private details of almost 500,000 users and then opted not to report it.

Own your platform

This is a nice reminder that you should own your content. It’s more than fine to republish or share it on every single social media but own it first.

Start a blog, create your content there. I can’t stress this enough. I feel so bad for those who poured so much effort into Google+. I remember following great photographers who didn’t seem to have a blog (I did check their profiles, as I prefer RSS than going into Google+).
Now, what do they do? They will lose all their followers, all their content no longer searchable, they will no longer have the portfolio.

That’s just sad.
