    Google Plus Help Needed - if a new website is a blog, what type of Google Page is it?

    I finally opened my website for a new blog - five years later - slow but sure. Now I want to set up a Google Plus Page and am lost so of course, I return to the comforts of home - my beloved HubPages to ask. What does a blog website qualify as? A Brand or a Service? I know it is not a storefront, a blog doesn't provide a "service" such as pizza delivery or plumbing. Please help with this basic essential question!

    PS I wish HP could run Google Plus Forums. I must prefer the Q & A and the open Forum developed here which explains why I am not asking Google Plus. Thanks for listening and helping.

    If it's an exercise or fitness (guessing by your screen name) type blog and you are trying to establish yourself as an expert in that field go with Brand.

    If you are selling products through your blog, you could go with storefront, but I wouldn't unless it actually promotes a brick and mortar type business, or your primary function is selling products. 

    Service area would be localized - if you were say a personal trainer looking for clients, then you'd use that.  If you are mostly just sharing information and establishing your credibility - branding is what you want.
