How to Connect and Post to Google+ From Blogger or Blogspot?


We’ve earlier covered about How to post to blogger right from Google+? and also How to link and replace your blogger profile with Google+ profile?.

But we get this question all the time from readers about doing the reverse i.e How do i post automatically to Google+ right from blogger.com / blogspot.com?

Until today it was not possible to do that. Now there is good news. As part of the effort by Google to socialize their products, Blogger team today rolled out a feature that allows exactly what you were asking for. A tighter integration between blogger and Google+ and it allows to share your post with your Google+ friends, circles or others right from blogspot.com.

    When I share the blogger post to G+ the image it encloses in the G+ post is a small thumbnail rather than the much larger thumbnail you get when adding a picassa image directly to the G+ post.  Any idea how to overcome this?

    Thanks, but how to you post to your google plus PAGE, not as a person but as your specific page youve created for a business etc?

    hi! brilliant and very useful post, thanks a million! it really does work like a charm…..

    the thumbnail that gets attached to all posts to google+ is my blogspot header.  is there anyway to use an image that is in the blog post rather than the default blog header?

    many thanks, i’m very excited that this worked!
