    Thus far, I only have two dedicated writers in my circles that I know of, and you're one of them.  heh

    If that grows, then I will actually make a circle specifically for that. However, I would be interested in a HP community or writers community. I don't know how active I'd be (you know me and communities), but I would be interested in pursuing that.

    I should. Any advice? I don't like the format much.

      You mean the format of G+?
      If so, it's a little different, but once you get the hang of it, it's a LOT more user friendly.  I'd be happy to help you through it if you want.

      If so, you can add me at:  google.com/+jeremyellwood

      I will put you in my GENERAL circle and then once I know who you are, migrate you to any other circles appropriate.

    I wish you luck.  I am a member of a G+ community, dedicated to just what you are talking about, and about 350 strong.  Some time ago it had degenerated into nothing but promoting individual hubs, and several people complained about that.

    So word went out and specific areas were made to post those worthless links to new hubs.  And it helped, some, for a few weeks, but has now deteriorated back into nothing but links to hubs.  I seldom go there any more as I'm not interested in self promotion on social sites, particularly when it is to hubbers interested only in promoting their OWN work.

    Looking at it just now, I see the last 20 posts are links (quite looking at #20).  There are 2 posts in the general conversation area during Nov. (no links, allowed) - somebody wanting to reanimate a banned profile and somebody promoting a new book. 

    So I wish you luck in your endeavor.  If I may, I suggest that you prohibit any self promotion, including links to anything not the subject of general discussion.

      That's precisely why it's just circles at this point, and not (yet) a community.  I simply cull out those who  offer nothing but self-promoting links.  Yes, admins can boot people out of communities, but I'd rather start with a solid group of people.  If we get that far, we can start a community then.

      I plan on checking out the community that has been posted above.

        Well, I think it could be a great idea for the right people.  If you can make it work. 

        Good luck!

    Here is the G+ HP community Wilderness was referring to:
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities … 1295766925

    And here is the start of a thread that spoke to the self-promotion issue perpetrated by most members:
    https://plus.google.com/103613731919206 … wS1dhu3ej7

    and here was the community's response to hub-spammers:
    https://plus.google.com/118119834322405 … qjR7s53ooK

    Like, Wilderness, I started there hoping for HP related interaction - got fed up with the hub-spam and lack of discussion activity, and, responding to this thread is the first time I have been back there in months.

    But, that community is already a base for what you appear to want - maybe you can rescue it.

      Thanks, GA.  I've bookmarked that community and will keep an eye on it.  They appear to be making an attempt to correct their members' propensity for self-promotion.  If it works, great.  But I don't intend to try to initiate any changes.  Who likes a newcomer trying to change things?  Besides, I don't want to try to change a leap of leopard's spots to stripes.  I'd rather start with some like-minded tigers.
