I have figured out I will be famous in 630 days on G+

03 Nov 2011 admin In G+ Posts

Ok there are some stipulations….

If I gain followers at the current pace (and honestly no idea why it has gone up again but i thank whoever has shared me in a circle or to my adoring spammers) I will bypass Mark Zuckerberg in T-Minus 630 days…. As long as he ads no one…ever again..

Oh PS: I will actually post and respond to people no matter how many followers I might ever get… that grates me that those with massive lists of followers do not for the most part interact with those followers…. That is not all of them but many it is… I know +Guy Kawasaki does…. and several others but clearly if you are followed by many why on earth would you not interact with those followers… that's why we have G+ and why people are on here… and clearly many of those people would not be who they are without those followers….

    ROFL I think everyone cycle has increased today. I think maybe Google have open Google Plus up to other markets or something. Me and others have been add to over 1200 cycles. Looks like maybe the Asia market have been added. That's my best guess.

    +Brent Burzycki I think a harder part of the challenge is that portrait people just have a harder time on here. Not sure why, but no HDR and or scenic mountain make for fewer followers.

  4. Love this post and I agree hate how aloof some of the big names are!

    You use Guy as your example huh?? I see how it is Brent… I guess we're just not cool anymore. I'm gonna go be aloof now. Punk! 😉

    I guess in 630 days I can say, "I know him when". Good luck with the fame, don't let it go to your head.

    +Brent Burzycki Your in the android photographers circle, I think that's the origin of all the followers?

    +Jessi June 🙂 – You passed!! 🙂 – and yes you are definitely one of the select few that care and give back…. I was only testing….see who else responded. I used Guy as an example becase I heard an interview with him today and +leo leporte (Who no longer shows up when I put in his name with a +) and it cracked me up….

    +Maria Stepanov Sommerfield It is annoying… I understand some but not all – as some are heads of huge companies and they are liable for everything they say…

    +Scott Detweiler I will say since I started here and have been watching – landscape and HDR do get a ton more attention….

    +Ricky L Jones I think it might have to do with opening to Google Aps users…

    +Sarah Hillier I think he runs some company that annoys me…..

    +Vinay Bikkina Ah…. that might just explain it…. I wish it was easier to see who was sharing circles with who in them and then at least I could say thanks…

    +Craig Pifer Thankfully I am not that type of person… I got +Jessi June to smack me around if I fall out of line….. not that we have met but pretty sure she would do it here – oh wait look she already did… 🙂

    I agree that would be neat feature to have!

  11. Brent Burzycki 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Vinay Bikkina So many cool features to add….. Like on the stream page to see who has sent you a private message, and added hangout notifications… but I have to say – G+ Staffers are on the ball… they seem to add features right when I ask for them… hmm maybe G+ can read my mind….

    You so famous +Brent Burzycki! Haha Feel free to send some of those folks my direction!

    +Shane Hunter Would you like me to wait till I hit super star status or do you want them now…… It's only 630 days from now…. I have been asking +Jessi June to share – but like all my relationships….. fail.. 🙁

    I'm not sure how you could possibly post and respond to all your followers. I have over 10K people following me, I'm following only 3K. My stream goes so fast that I can barely read every post as it scrolls by. And that is only when I'm watching. Thousands of posts occur while I'm not on Google+. (I have gotten 227 new posts on my stream just while typing this response).

    Am I just not following what you mean by responding to every follower?

  15. Shane Hunter 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Brent Burzycki I'll take 'em whenever you got 'em 😉 Oh.. +Jessi June Just add him and share the circle already. Make the man stop whinning 😛

  16. Brent Burzycki 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Shane Hunter I will send them.. your in my Photo Network circle – its a core group of hangouters and people I know more on G+… I will share that out and we will see how that goes…..you stay up too late for me thou….

    +Craig Colvin Yes I know the feeling I follow over 4000 and have I think by this weekend 20K – that said – if someone sends me a question I take time to answer it back personally… I am sure I have missed some but if someone + mentions me I do my damndest to reply or say thanks for the mention or try to give back something for that person taking the time to mention me….

    if someone takes the time to say hello I can take the time to say hello back I guess it what it comes down too… I do also dedicate a decent amount of time to G+ – but really it translates to an hour a day unless its a hangout…. How the big dogs cannot take an hour a day to reply and try to give back is what sort of kills me…

  17. Shane Hunter 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Brent Burzycki Haha stay up too late… You just go to bed too early 😛

  18. Brent Burzycki 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    Quite possibly true…..

  19. Jessi June 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Brent Burzycki If you want to see who has sent you a private message that may have slipped through the cracks, simply search yourself at the top! Set it to most recent, and watch the fun. Thats what I have to do! I'll see messages from like 2 weeks ago that I never got. That search function is a life saver!

    +Shane Hunter Us girls gotta have standards you know… ROFLMAO. Brent's been circled for a while… and he knows it!

  20. Shane Hunter 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Jessi June haha standards… What are those again?! 😉

  21. Jaime Perry 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    I follow close to 3000 people. I have 3 photography circles, 3 artist circles, and collection of various other circles to put everyone in their places. My stream is out of control and I'm sure I miss a lot; I am honestly interested in about 75% of the people I follow. If one day, someone annoys me I may stop following them. I love to read random things, and I get to see some really amazing art. I hope it isn't frowned upon to follow a lot of people.

    Hmm yoda, I sort of feel like I look like yoda…. Not as knowledgable thou and sadly do not have the force…

  23. Geoff Yale 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    if you want to be yoda… you need to jumble your sentences more. i.e. "Famous I wlil be, 630 days… mmmm"
    Congrats. I always enjoy checking your photos out.
    P.S. where did you get your Danbo?

  24. Brent Burzycki 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Geoff Yale good point… I got that off Amazon from a company in Japan… "High Price he was…mmmmm" also only the small version – i guess there is a large version also…. I could only imagine the price….

  25. Geoff Yale 3 Nov 2011 Reply

    +Brent Burzycki thanks I've seen them on Amazon… couldn't believe the price. There's one cheaper without the text on the boxes… but I kinda like the text. I'll check ebay.

    +Geoff Yale yeh – they are priced insanely high…
